    Disappointing

    Room was very cold and took a lot of playing around with the thermostat to get it right. Although the floor to ceiling windows was pleasant to look, they offer VERY LITTLE privacy! I could see into other guests rooms, and I am sure they could see into mine! The whole room had an “unfinished “ feel about it. The ceilings showed shotty workmanship and looked cheaply done. The half door for the shower was very uncomfortable because of how big the bathroom openings was, it was very cold so I had to stay under the hot running water at all times!

    Definitely plan to come back

    This place was excellent. Felt significantly more upscale than the price of the room, and the room itself was a major upgrade from what I consider to be a “standard” room in that price range. Also significant effort was made to take into account the Covid pandemic, which is always a nice surprise in Florida at this point.

  • 6.0.Good

    Shands patient may care about certain exclusions.

    The staff was amazingly helpful and kind. The hotel is well designed and comfortable. The main issue that we had was there was no daily housekeeping or room service. We choose hotels and not motels because of these features. I did not notice this exclusion when booking but perhaps that was my mistake. I am sure that these choices are a corporate decision and in no way reflects on the staff/services provided during our stay. We stayed at this hotel because of proximity to Shands Hospital and patient is immuno compromised so eating in room and linen change is a health issue. Oh, and there is no shower curtain/door. It was designed this way just odd.

    Best Hotel in Gainesville

    It was a beautiful hotel. We went for the Gators game and it was a easy walk and they also had a shuttle to take you to the game. Valet parking was amazing and those guys worked hard. Hotel was beautiful and very clean and the food at the restaurant was amazing. Will definitely be back and stay there anytime we’re in Gainesville.

    Disappointment!

    They cancelled my reservation as I could not make it to he hotel in time on a Thursday due to my flight delays. They did not contact me in any way that they were cancelling my reservation and I drove 119 miles on a Friday from the Orlando Airport to find out they had cancelled my reservation. The managers and staff did not show me empathy as I explained the family emergency and why my child was at the hospital. They did not offer to assist me other than they would book my room at an exuberant accelerated rate not the one I had originally booked at less than 24 hours earlier. I am shocked that owners, investors, mangers and staff at Hotel Eleo find this treatment of a mother with her child in the hospital acceptable. However from their lack of morals and understanding they found their treatment of me to be satisfying. Hotel Eleo the owners, investors, managers and staff are an absolute disappointment. To take advantage of a mother with her child in the hospital for emergency surgery to make an extra buck... absolutely disgusting and low class!

    We enjoyed our weekend visiting our Gators. Hotel is nice, clean and with excellent service. The restaurant is so far the best food we’ve had in Gainesville.
