Still not enough pillows on bed...

Pros: Decor, space, quiet
Cons: Proper pillows, MORE pillows per bed
Location: Gainesville- Gators, UFHealth, VA etc.
This was my second stay and like the first one, there were only 2 pillows on the bed. They appear to be down filled, flimsy and provide zero support for the head. If you are prone to apnea, you might not survive the night! Rather than providing 4 supportive pillows like every other hotel in the area, they provide these 2 small (almost square) pillows and a long (36") tube like pillow wrapped in bedspread material that I suppose one would use as a body pillow. I didn't get the feeling the cover was washed every day, so that did not get used! Luckily I packed my own pillow and so at least got some sleep during this stay. The other aspects of the room are fine, especially the decor which is contemporary modern.The space is roomy, quiet and otherwise everything I want in a hotel room.

Contemporary furnishings, fresh and new

Pros: Space, cleanliness, contemporary decor
Cons: Better mattress, MORE PILLOWS! Even the $60 hotels I have stayed in provide at least 4
Location: UF, Gator football, UFHealth Shands hospital
This is a relatively new hotel in Gainesville and my first stay. i have stayed at multiple other hotels in the area and this one far exceeds them in terms of space, décor and cleanliness. Rooms are quite large, with a sitting area and kitchenette, complete with dishwasher. Furnishings reflect what is currently desired by homeowners with quartz countertop and farm sink in the bathroom, glass doors etc. The room I had was very quiet (choose the single queen rooms as they are away from the street). The temperature was relatively well controlled. The downside was the bed which did not feel new and did not have appropriate pillows to assure comfort. I did not sleep well despite the quiet. The pillows were thread bare, there were only two of them and they offered no support for my head. You would be well advised to bring your own!

We loved this hotel! The staff was super friendly our hotel room was VERY clean (I'm kind of a snob about hotels, too), and it was close to UF! The bed was sooo comfy too. Great comfortable stay, would totally stay here again!
