We haven't stayed at a Comfort Inn for a few years and thought we would give it a try since it was well rated. As I sit here writing this, my eyes are burning and I'm getting a headache from the disinfectant being so strong. When we checked in we were told pets could only be in the first floor... More

Bottom line, this is one of the best Choice Hotel properties I have ever stayed at, and I've stayed at hundreds. And by far, the 'star' of the place is a desk clerk named Nicole Archer. I have never seen anyone who can multitask so efficiently and not mess something up. While she was checking me in, she handled about... More

Staff was absolutely awesome. Had two different rooms, a 2 double bed, and a king regular, both on opposite side from highway. Easy to get to, quieter than those across the main drag. Both had half fridge and microwave wet-bar area. Some of them need a facelift, though. The double room chairs needed to be reupholstered (holes from burns, looked... More

After traveling for 2 days we pull into this hidden gem and we were greeted by the smiling face of Nicole. She was helpful in letting us know about the hotel and were we could get a great meal. The hotel is very nice good breakfast. We will be back!!!! Thanks again to Nicole....you are awesome.

We were traveling home from Key West and needed a room for one night. We walked into the Comfort Inn University and got a great rate and great customer service. Nicole Archer was the best! We really appreciated her hospitality after our long trip.

Stayed her one night. Room was spacious. Air conditioning was OUTSTANDING! The room was clean. The bathroom was clean. The front desk person was courteous and quick. The area was quiet and appeared to be safe. I did not eat breakfast so I cannot comment on its quality. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

This was a pleasant surprise. Excellent property, but the highlight is the customer service. Everyone was very welcoming and the popcorn is great. Would highly recommend this property, great location with many restaurants in the area.
