      The location was ideal but the first room smelled mildew so I was moved to another room which was better but still had a musty smell. They really need to rip up all the carpets and deal with the mildew!

      Most holiday inns provide a complimentary breakfast. When I came down to the lobby in the morning, I went to the breakfast area and prepared a breakfast plate. As I was walking to my table, a staff member came over and told me that i needed to go to the front desk and tell them that I was having breakfast. when I asked why, she said the breakfast was $10.95 This seemed like sort of an ambush. The next time I visit Gainesville, I will find a hotel that offers a complimentary breakfast.

      I was very happy with everything about The Holiday Inn. I highly recommend this hotel.

    • 7.4

      The Hotel is in a nice position, it is clean and well conforable. Staff is good and always ready to support

      The breakfast service is not enough suffiient for price. Also it is in the lobby of the hotel (the entrnace). Finally, I had a little surprise on final cost. The booking price in Euro was 800 euro, while in us dollars It was 1000 (thus an increase difference of 100 euros, almost 10 %).

      Front desk staff was excellent. Professional and nice.

      Price a little high but competitive.

      Location close to UF

      The room smelled a little musty

    • 8.2

      It was right across for UF and a spacious room. The staff was so accommodating and great.

      There was an issue with a smell in the bathroom, but I didn't report it. When I did the next day - they were very good about handling it and had true concern for my satisfaction.

    • 8.2

      Perfect base to visit my son at the university. Hotel runs a really efficient shuttle service for guests. Free coffee in the lobby is a nice touch. Great rooftop pool with sun all day.

      Breakfast finished at 9. No room service.

    • 4.6

      this facility is very worn out. I was on the 6th floor - the bathroom and some walls in the bedroom area were stained. gross. I saw a roach in the bathroom at night.

    • 9.2

      The location is excellent. Close to downtown and close to UF. I feel I pay more than the going rate here because I am a woman traveling alone and safety is my main concern. I feel very safe and comfortable at this hotel and sleep well at night. I don't mind that the rates here are a bit higher because of this fact.

      Over all I'd give it a 10 except for the bathroom could be updated and a bit cleaner.

      Love this hotel and we are repeat customers many times over!

      Location

      Very old and dated. To charge the prices charged, facility needs serious upgrades. Poor value
