Special thanks to the folks at Comfort Inn University. We have stayed there many times and this time my wife went back to the room early while I went to the game The TV had some difficulties picking up the Gators Game in our room. Something to do with the programing on the TV as the other channels worked fine.... More

Stayed at this hotel during our visit to Gainesville. The hotel was located in a great area, they had a nice breakfast buffet and nice staff. Unfortunately, our room, 111, was dirty. It looked like it had not been dusted in months, no one had cleaned the nightstands or the phone in the room, the shower curtain smelled and the... More

Crumbs. Powder from prior people. How hard is it to move the night table to vacuum people's crumbs? Wash the shower too. And change the frig which sounds like the ocean waves. I'm so tired or otherwise I would have complained.

We decided to stay here based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. Tiffany was very sweet. They are pet friendly. The breakfast was awesome. They provide a lot of pillows! If we ever come back this way, we will definitely stay here again.

We stayed for one night in July while visiting UF, paying around $90 (advance booking). The hotel was about 10-12 minutes from the University, near a Target and other shopping and chain restaurants. I found the hotel to be very clean and the bed was comfortable. Our room was right next to the highway but I wasn't bothered by the... More

The room was clean and comfortable with a king size bed and costs were reasonable for being close to I-75 and downtown Gainesville. The room amenities were nice... More

I had an emergency at home, had water in my home and no AC . I needed a pet friendly, local hotel. I called several and they charged $25 and up to bring a pet. I finally called the Comfort Inn in Gainesville, Florida. I had a room, king size bed, clean and a full breakfast menu every day. Tiffany... More

We stayed here for 1 night in June. Upon arriving very early in the day I took a chance to see if we could check in since we would be at the hospital for the remainder of the day. The desk clerk was very friendly and understanding. He said "sure" where you would you like to have your room. I... More

We stay here each time we come to Gainesville. During Gator baseball season that adds up quickly. We enjoy the staff, Ariana and Andrew are usually on when we arrive. They treat us like extended family. During our last visit we pulled into the driveway and Ariana had our room ready by the time I walked into the lobby, including... More
