We stayed here on our travels south. An excellent place to stay. Very clean and neat, The staff is very friendly, helpful and eager to answer any questions. The room was great, with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was the general fare, nicely presented. The only issue we had was that the HVAC unit did not work well. The room... More

If you want friendly service and a comfortable bed, this is the place to go. Will be back next time we go to Gainesville. Great place to stay. Love the popcorn and cookies every night. Late check outs no problem.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times and have always enjoyed my stays. Very good staff and caring management. I would recommend highly. The value is great, the location is excellent. I would recommend staying in the front side when you can due to some highway noise on the I-75 side.

My most recent stay at the Comfort Inn in Gainesville was very comfortable. After driving for almost 12 hours in heavy traffic, my room, bed, refrigerator, shower were all combining for a restful night. This property is just a short walk from Publix grocery story and plenty of dining options. The continental breakfast the morning of check out is more... More

While on our way to South Florida we stayed at the Comfort Inn and chose it because they allow pets for small fee. Very pleased with the service, room very clean, pet walk area available and great sports bar close by so we could watch the game! Definitely recommend!

Nicely lanscaped and inviting. The lobby has fresh cookies and popcorn and the front desk personnel are very helpful and efficent. The hotel staff is always working to make the hotel neat and clean. The free breakfast was nothing extraordinary and it would be nice to have some white bread for toast versus just wheat and it drives me crazy... More

First of all it was wonderful to be able to stay in a hotel that allows pets in a non smoking room. The rate was reasonable, the facility seemed a bit dated but was very clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Although the free breakfast was included it was poor quality compared to other hotels that I have... More

We unknowingly, arrived a day after a huge Florida State football game. We were able to get a room and were pleasantly surprised. The large room had a huge couch and sitting area and a very comfortable bed. We were a little disappointed at the cleanliness of the walls, which were evidence of lots of party spills that were built... More

We stay at this hotel whenever in the area. It's tucked back off the main road so is very quiet. Fresh warm cookies and popcorn greet you and the desk staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms show some typical wear of an older hotel, but ours was very clean. The towels were plush and the bed and pillows... More
