This is one of the cleanest hotel, that I have been in and that is for 48 years that I have traveled world wide. The staff was great, and all the amenities that I needed were there. The area is safe and the area around the hotel are safe to walk or even jog and be truly safe.

Nice hotel and super close to UF.

Pros: Virtually across the street from UF and the location is in a quiet area of town, but just a couple of miles from all the places to eat and shop.
Cons: I went to the pool and there were leaves in the pool.
Location: Perfect for attending activities at UF and shopping for Gator gear and restaurants.
My stay at the Hilton was very comforting and quiet. The front desk staff were very nice in welcoming me and made sure that I had everything I needed.
