Love it. Have stayed here many times now.

Posted Nov 16, 2014
Pros: Staying in the cottages is unique and roomy
Cons: Noticed the tub faucet handle had a leak in Lilly's Cottage but just bringing that to your attention so that you may fix.
Location: Lots to do and walk to because it is near downtown.
Excellent place. All of the staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast in the morning is outstanding.

Sweetwater is AWESOME!

Posted Jun 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
I stayed at Sweetwater for 2 nights but I wish I could have stayed longer. Christina at the front desk is a real sweetheart. The grounds are impeccably kept up! The breakfast was also really delicious and they have a wine & cheese hour at 6pm - yummy! If you are visiting Gainesville I highly recommend staying in Sweetwater! :)

Great central location

Posted Apr 25, 2014
Pros: It is not the blockhouse soulless building which can describe most of the chain hotels.
Cons: Cannot think of anything.
Location: Central location strategically located for attending arts at UF, Hippodrome, Gator Stadium, aka The Swamp,shopping, dining.
Welcoming Old South mansion. Well appointed combining the modern with the past. Antique furniture, quilts in room, collectible bric-a-brac. Porch, breakfast and common sitting areas are cozy, comfortable. Lush grounds, small pond, restful for the eye. For visitors from the East Coast it is a great location, quick for arrival and getaway. It is near the old center with its multitude of dining spots, to the University of Florida, ten minutes from the Harm Museum and the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

Lovely place

Posted Apr 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
Just spent one night here but would highly recommend if you are visiting Gainsville. The hotel consists of a few smaller buildings off the main road, my room was very nicely decorated, breakfast was among the best I've had in a hotel, staff were very helpful. Location is slightly away from the centre of town but very easily accessed. The informal B&B style might not be for everyone but if you are looking for a relaxed and comfortable place to stay you'd do well to find something better for the price anywhere.

A lovely old "style" stay.

Posted Jan 15, 2014
Pros: The friendly and helpful staff, its situation and the old style. The interior decor was in keeping with the era of the house.
Cons: We wanted to shower at 7.15am and the water was barely lukewarm. Bedside lighting. Wifi is slow
Location: Good, easy to walk to the Hippodrome theatre, a few boutique shops and restaurants.
These Victorian buildings are situated with in easy walking distance of downtown and good restaurants. Situated in semi tropical gardens there were relaxing places to sit and read. The room was attractive, a good size and nicely furnished. Daily newspapers were available in the lounge.

Not a good experience overall

Posted Oct 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
Based on our first night, we would rate this a 2, but went up to a 3 based on better results the second night. We were given a 'private' bath that was down some stairs, up some stairs and across the hall. Not at all what we were expecting. We were moved to another room the next night, but the place is a little tight and filled with extension cords to dehumidifiers, lights, fans, etc. Breakfast was wonderful and a pleasant setting.
