Southern Hospitality

Posted Dec 30, 2014
Cons: TV satellite dish is not always reliable.
We have had several UF students in our family and always stay here when we visit. The facility is is very comfortable and attractive. The lobby is well- decorated and the pool area is very scenic with live oaks all around. The rooms are large with comfortable beds. On our last visit the TV was not working well and the technician they sent to fix it was very apologetic and quickly found the problem. The buffet breakfast is delicious and generous. Our college students love to meet us for breakfast before we head home, and they always get enough to eat. The manager of the hotel was in the dining room our last morning and asked us how the breakfast was. Later he made a point to show us the free coffee in the lobby when we were waiting for our grandson to meet us. We really felt he was glad we were there.

Friendly staff and updated look

Spent one Night here, and we were impressed with the look of the hotel in the friendliness of the people working there. We also enjoyed the breakfast buffet and the gator theme. The location is also very convenient.

Pros: Location. We were in town for son's graduation from UF.
Cons: We heard gurlgling sounds from the bathroom and found water in the sink. I didnt report it until checkout.

Close to UF

Posted Dec 14, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Use Clorox around the tub and the wall to get rid of stains!!!!
Location: UF
This was our 2nd time at this hotel. The staff are really nice and polite. On both occasions our rooms were nice, comfortable, and quiet. The bath tub however needed a little more attention on the corners of the wall this time around. I found this hotel on Expedia and it was not inexpensive! I paid $139.99 plus tax and fees!
