I love this place! The employees are always so kind and courteous. I always feel safe there, maybe I am naive in that area, but it just feels like family. I recommend this hotel wholeheartedly. You see I stay here each time I have to go to Shands and they always find the time to ask me how I am... More

We stopped overnight on a road trip so we could take my daughter on a college tour of UF. The tour was great but this hotel stay poisoned the whole experience. First, be aware that the pin location for this hotel is incorrect in trip advisor: I made reservations for this hotel thinking I was next to the university--in fact,... More

We were attending a conference in Gainesville and chose this hotel because it was reasonably priced and close to the conference hotel. We were not disappointed. The desk clerk, Ariana, was super! Even though we arrived in the morning, she was able to get us into a room right away. This allowed us to get settled in before heading to... More

The room was clean, the bed was really soft and customer service was really friendly. It was very quiet and comfortable. Location was good, very close to where we needed to go and also close to a lot of shopping centers and restaurants.

Disappointed with the room. Most of the lights in the room did not work. The room was suppose to be a suite. The room was not cleaned well, and the staff was less than friendly. I needed to ask for extra pillows for the sofa sleeper, and for the blankets. I was told that I had to come downstairs and... More

The fresh clean scent the minute we walked in the door alerted us that this was likely to be a pleasant experience. And pleasant it was ! The general manager , Jay Patel, and desk clerk, Tiffany, could not have been more friendly or helpful. We had several requirements, especially after encountering bugs someplace else the night before, and Jay... More

We always stay at this Comfort Inn on our way to southern Florida. We can always expect a great clean room. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The breakfast is always good and hot with a clean dining area.

We stayed at this property when we were in Gainesville for the Gatornationals. We had a suite, and the rate was one of the best in the area. The big surprise was the hot tub in the room - just what we needed after sitting on hard metal bleachers all day! I truly enjoyed that! The room was large, the... More
