The Residence Inn Gainesville I-75 is a recently renovated Marriott property that is close to the interstate, as its name implies. Guestrooms can accommodate families of five, and you have a choice of studio suites, one-bedroom suites and two-bedroom suites. All suites come with a refrigerator, microwave, stovetop and dishwasher. The living spaces have a pullout sofa bed, armchair and a dinette, as well as a large flat-screen TV with HD channels and premium movie channels. One- and two-bedroom suites have more than one TV per suite. The hotel provides a grocery shopping service, and cribs can be requested if you’re traveling with an infant.
Families appreciate the free hot breakfast in the mornings. And while there is no onsite restaurant here, the many nearby options include Outback Steakhouse and the Olive Garden Italian Restaurant. If you’d rather dine in your suite, the hotel offers a local restaurant dinner delivery service to bring meals right to your door.

Made a reservation for 2 nights. Cancelled it online well in advance. Later was charged $514 by the hotel. After 10 phone calls was told they would not refund because they couldn't rent the room (I think they could guess we wouldn't be there for the second night). Said we were only charged for 1 night. Do you think the residence Inn going rate for one night is $514 dollars? Because it certainly isn't what we made the reservation for. Will never book here again.
Very nice Suites , they have a full kitchen in the rooms , and the morning breakfast are a great start to the day ! Pet friendly , we even saw the front desk lady taking care of a pet who's owners went out to dinner , what a nice touch for our fur babies .
