We often stay at Sleep Inn in Gainesville. This time, we got a better price at Comfort Inn. Both are Choice hotels and so have similarities, like the identical breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable. We liked the choice of firm and soft pillows. There were a few problems, though. The bathroom needed some caulk... More

This hotel is close to I-75 and convenient for travelers. While on the road, we called and inquired about a room with an extra bed. We were offered a two room suite with a jacuzzi for the same price as a king room with rollaway! The basic outdoor pool entertained my kids for an hour and, after swimming, they enjoyed... More

This hotel is very convenient and always clean. It is full of extras....from the food to the lamps in the rooms! I stay here quite often in off season ( I can't afford it during season) and have never had a bad experience. They welcome dogs, but I've never been bothered by noise or smell. I LOVE their carpeted stairwell... More

On the way south to the Sarasota area, we ran out of time and energy and decided to stop in Gainesville. We are quite familiar with the town as my parents lived there for years. I was shocked at the high prices for motels near the interstate, with no particular events going on in Gainesville. Tripadvisor on my phone showed... More

This is an awesome place to stay! Very friendly staff from front desk to housekeeping, very clean rooms, very accommodating to your pets! Price was just right, loved having a hot breakfast before getting back on the road. Will definitely stay here again when in Gainesville, FL!!

We stopped here For a quick overnight stay. Lobby was clean and front desk staff was very friendly. A reasonable rate offered. Our room was O.K. A deep clean would be helpful. Dust in ceiling, drawer in night was dusty with lent, a couple spots on the covers were questionable. The microwave and fridge were nice. Breakfast offered cereal, a... More

I was required to stay three days in Gainsville and I prefer Comfort hotels. My stay at The Comfort Inn University was top notch. The staff was cheerful and helpful. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed.my only complaint would be that they only had ice and vending on every other floor. However I spoke with the General Manager... More

Clean, spacious room. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast wasn't all that; there were hot items--scrambled eggs, ham, sausage and waffles, nothing was very good. The motel is located for easy access to I-75.

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel twice in the past 7 months. Both times we experienced a nice clean room and an excellent staff. We brought our Boston Terrier brothers on both of our visits and we were given ground floor rooms. An extra plus! Love the popcorn, cookies and delicious coffee in the lobby!

We checked in to the Red Roof Inn but decided that what we gave up wasn't worth the price difference so we moved over here to the comfort inn. Rosa at the front desk was so nice - she let us check in early and the room was very comfy. The Internet service was very fast in the lobby and... More
