Guest Recommendations
"Living room was AC cold, but bedrooms hot, and could not lower temperature because of the regulated thermostat. Construction started at 6:40 a.m. next door!!! But overall, the room was otherwise very comfortable and plan to use this hotel again."
Diane from Miami, FL US rated Homewood Suites Gainesville 9 out of 10 on August 04, 2006
