Downtown Gainesville in construction zone
Posted Oct 26, 2016
I was displeased with this hotel due to that I did not feel that it met the rating it was given as a 4 star hotel. It was a chilly night and when we turned on the heater, the smell was unbearable. We had to turn it off in minutes and open the door for over a half hour to air it out. There was loud hammering in the hotel on our floor that started very early. There is a lot of construction going on in the near area, but we knew that when we checked in, since you could see it. The bathroom had an unpleasant urine odor, which we did not notice right away until the door had been shut for a while. Expedia charged us an extra fee for breakfast, which ended at 9:00 A.M. We were not told that at the desk when we checked in. I thought that was early for a self serve breakfast, and we missed it by 15 minutes. The rooftop pool area was very nice, but would of been much better if the pool was heated, which makes the pool mostly not comfortably useable from October 1 to April 30. The pool did not light until after 9:00. It got dark at 7:00. I feel that there are a lot of things not being maintained, as should be for a 4 star rating. I do not feel like I got what I paid for.
