My alarm clock did not work so I was running late. The front desk manager was rude. I requested a later check out because I did not have chance to pack before my appointment. She said if I did not get back by 2:30pm she would charge me xxx.

Poor customer service

Did not know the only bill I would get was the one from Priceline over the computer. The only complaint is very minor-the bed pillows were very small.

The indoor heated pool and the heated spa were well enjoyed. The room was nice and quiet. Breakfast selection was good. Parking was good. Proximity to UF excellent. Beds were good. Very satisfied with our stay.

The location was easy to get to right off of I-75.

The room smelled very musty and moldy. I informed management immediately and they came up and sprayed air freshener. When we went to sleep the pillows had the same musty smell. It was difficult to get rest.

The hotel is definitely a one-star, and no bargain. I've stayed in four-star hotels where I have paid less. There is no elevator, and the whole hotel smells old and musty.

The mattress was either very old and wore out or very cheap... worse than the mattresses I had in the military... Also the room had a very stale smell to it

I was very impressed with the entire experience, the room was very nice and clean, the staff was very good and accommodating. The internet was super easy to set up and had no issues at all with connecting.

People slamming their door late or early, a suggestion would be to have auto closer that closes the doors gently.

Breakfast was very impressive for a continental breakfast and the attendant was very personable and went out of his way to make sure everyone had what they needed. Extremely great service overall. Highly pleased with my stay.

Location Location Location... Very close to UF and Shand's Hospital, close to a Mall, and lot of restaurants in walking distance.

The housekeeping showed up pretty early like around 7a.m. and we asked her to come later, and later was like in 1 hr, she showed up again and we were like grrrrrr, and the front desk had no remorse when we told her, instead she started laughing.

That doesn't mean i won't go there again, we definitely will if i have to

lesson learned: I never booked using priceline before and would never do it again. THE hotel manager was very nice and customer service oriented but priceline was unreasonable.

I would recomend that no one ever use priceline to book a reservation. Go directly to the hotel to book room. Priceline is unreasonable and NOT customer FRIENDLY. You do not get any cost savings but you will be held to pay regardless if you have an unexpected emergency or cancellation of event. YOU WILL STILL HSVE TO PAY THE PRICE!

Location and price.

Sheets and pillows were low quality and uncomfortable.

Room was acceptable for 12 hours of sleep while traveling. It rained so we did not use the pool. The pool did look nice. The room was ok but sheets are paper thin and would not stay on bed! Pillows same low quality.

Our group occupied 4 rooms. We were able to get them on the same floor and close together. The rooms were very clean and spacious. We did not have time to enjoy all the amenities but there were many. The staff was great; very friendly and helpful.

The beds were a little hard but I still slept well. The coffee in the room was terrible. The cafe downstairs was a bit overpriced (but the food was great). We were disappointed the hotel does not offer complimentary coffee downstairs.

There is ample parking right by the door. The rooms are nicely decorated and the bed linens are a bright white which brightens the room. It is right off Archer Rd which is restaurant haven. There are also many stores right around the corner. There are no pets or smoking so you know your room will be fresh. I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again myself.

Hotel staff - especially Walter - were extremely personable and accommodating. Continental breakfast with waffles was fresh, well-organized and had plenty of seating.

Unfortunately the spa-whirlpool was unavailable during our stay. We had looked forward to enjoying it after a long day of driving.

Ease of check-in and front desk staff.

Too close to the interstate. With the air condition off I could hear the roar of the traffic passing by which disturbed my sleep. I was also placed in a handicap accessible without requesting it, so there was no tub or full size ironing board.

It was appropriate for its star level. Breakfast was free and the rooms were comfortable. Elavators need to be painted a different color for they blend to well with the walls and are hard to spot.

No coffee pot with coffee maker. Clerk answered my question before I asked it - and it was the answer to the wrong question. I would have liked a door closing off the bathroom sink.

The best thing about this hotel was the location right off I-75 and close to retail stores and restaurants.

This hotel charges for non-smoking rooms. The breakfast includes prepackaged vending machine junk food and coffee. No fruit, juice or toast.

Not customer oriented, not concerned about health and safety of its guests.

This hotel stuck me in a smoking room that was so horrific, I would have paid any price to change hotels, but there were none left in town. Sheets, carpet, - everything smelled so bad that I went to a store to buy air freshener, spray disinfectant, etc.

Hotel staff closes the office at 11:00 pm - so between lousy service and the awful smell of the room, this should definitely be classified as a 1-star motel. Worst experience in years.

I was pleasantly surprised by how clean and new this hotel feels. The room was so pleasant, I took a video of it so I could keep in order to later purchase a small studio like it.

I would have liked it to be closer to UF Campus, but this is a great hotel.

The room layout was much more spacious than other hotels we've stayed in recently in the same room rate ($) category. The complimentary breakfast was also better than average. In the future we will look for opportunities to stay with Residence Inn.

No

Our stay at the Gainesville, FL Residence Inn was a very pleasant experience. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, the full kitchen was put to good use, the free internet service served our 15 year old son very nicely, the staff was quite gracious and we had all in all a very enjoyable stay. During the same trip we stayed with other unnamed high end hotel chains that do not offer anything near that same accommodations/services. In my opinion Residence Inn demonstrated their culture for customer care to be clearly superior to their competition.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
