Had to stay in Gainesville unexpectedly, saw a brochure in Shands hospital with hospital rates. Got 2 rooms on the same day of check in. Found one room ok, the second had a problem with ants. When we turned on the AC and the heating unit the ants were off and running to the races. Called the front desk and maintenance came up with a can of spray. Requested a new room, which we did receive. Maintenance person came up with a can of soda and placed it one the floor outside the room. Next morning it was still there.

On checking into our rooms, stepping off the elevator we found emtpy room service trays just piled up on a hallway table..some looked like breakfast food remnants and it was 5:30 PM. Staff was friendly, however, housekeeping needs to be addressed.

YUCK...smells horrible

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is horrible. The hallways smell like vomit. The room was not only smelly and on ground floor but covered with ants!! If you are looking for a similar price room try the Baymont, they are only $5 more and 500 times better.

very clean and great service

from TravelingBill-7
I was very pleased with our room. It was spacious and clean. It was well decorated with a pillow top mattress, very comfortable. We were travelling with two small children and the room gave them plenty of space to crawl and play. The young man working at the check in desk was friendly and gave us a room on the first floor to make it easy on us since we were checking in with a lot of baby items and luggage. Another good feature is that there is a great restaurant called the sky box that has a great all you could eat seafood buffet on friday it was unreal.
The pool aws very large and looked brand new. The hotel is located on a beautiful lake

Worst Service Ever

from A TripAdvisor Member
No one seemed to care. The place was dirty and smelled bad. In the morning the garbage smell is the strongest. This was a terrible place, my family and I had an emergency and we called the front desk to ask if they knew of a clinic near by and all they said was "nope". I wouldn't stay here again if my life depended on it.

Big Mistake

from SB0321
I have to wholeheartedly agree with the "May" reviewer ... "mildew" is a key word. I was on the ground level and almost every day there was standing water in the stairwell and coming from where I couldn't quite figure ... I called about it at one point but clearly it made no difference because only by the 3rd day was it really wiped up. One thing I found interesting to the point of humorous, however, was that the Housekeeping staff was in evidence almost all day long ... anytime I'd go in or out of my room there was the cart with staff not too far from it. No screens on the glass door of my room out to the small patio, so there was no way to let in fresh air without the possibility of a snake sniggling in -and there were snakes (harmless, I'm assuming - they were small anyway) - alligators in the body of water behind the hotel but fortunately they're fenced off! Also internal directional signage was severely lacking ... very difficult to find your way around. My first visit to Gainesville but next time, it's definitely the Hilton for me ... this hotel totally misrepresents itself in its advertising - "Resort", "Conference Center" - hardly!

I booked a few nights at the The Paramount, but charged my credit card prematurely. I left several msgs with accounting and the general manager, but no response. Finally someone at the front desk offered to help. At the airport, the shuttle took an hour to get there, even though they told me it would be there shortly. When I arrived at the hotel, it turned out they had reserved TWO rooms for me for some reason. Added to this, at the front desk they quoted me a price $20 more than what they told me over the phone. horrible, simply horrible. I took a cab to another hotel and everything was great.

please read: spend your dollars somewhere else

from A TripAdvisor Member
saw this place on the web, read everything that the paramount site had to say and thought WOW all of this in lil ole gainesville, i then called the resort and spoke with staff. i was told by the front desk that only the HILTON was better, man was i jumping with joy as i thought i found a pearl. i quickly made my reservations for my wife and i and just waited to go. well this is what i got. the marriott is just down the street

The Smell of Mildew

from micavaco
I just stayed here on 4/20/05, and this place is disgusting. I do not know what the others writing reviews were thinking (must be the owners), but this place smelled of mold, the tubs did not drain, the comp lotion and shampoo had been opened, then used, and then put back, and the sheets were dirty. I actually had two rooms and both were like that. Do Not Stay Here, You Will Not Enjoy It...

Well, not all that bad really

from eugeneone
I got a room for 2 nights @ $40 from Priceline
(check out biddingfor travel to see what
prices are being accepted). My room was
clean and comfortable. It did not remind me
of a prison! I think minimal decor equals
modern decor in some folks eyes. I liked
the feather pillow and saw an alligator in
the lake outside my balcony in the morning.

What a disappointment

from A TripAdvisor Member
I recently stayed at the Paramount and was very disappointed. The facilities were just fair (not good). The suite was spacious, but the room was barely decorated and not well cleaned (I found someone else's dirty sock on the floor). The restaurant was very bad. Most people were complaining about the service and food. I would not stay there again.
