Very nice and convenient. The only real negative was the tub in the bathroom which had orange spotting that looked like graham crackers. It was not something that could be brushed away. Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The friendly and helpful staff plus the location will bring us back.

First time visitors, we usually stay in a different hotel but needed to change because of a lousy experience. I was really leery about the allowance of pets here. Even though I saw a few dogs, I never smelled anything. And our room was great. No funny odors. We had a king suite so it was spacious, with a refrigerator,... More

My wife and I stopped in Gainesville on the way to Orlando. We only stayed for one night, but it was pleasant. The check in was quick and the room was clean. The breakfast was good and the staff was friendly. The location was easy to get to off of the interstate.

Our stay was very good. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the staff was friendly, and the food was good (but not great). We joined their frequent traveler program and got a very good rate on the room. While breakfast was not especially crowded, they did seem to run out of food pretty frequently and were constantly running... More

We stayed on our way to Cape Canaveral. The hotel was pleasant and perfectly friendly. The staff were helpful enough. The breakfast was ok (but really just ok). Building was a bit care worn. Perfectly good but didn't distinguish itself in any way.

Stayed 8 days at this hotel because sister was in hospital. Brought 2 poodles with me. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help me out when in need. The room was in the pet friendly area (1st floor) - it hadn't been upgraded though. It was great to be able to leave the dogs... More

While traveling on a road trip I stopped at the end of the day at this hotel. All other hotels were booked, so I ended up staying here. First the good: The front desk staff were very nice and professional. Now the bad: I was given a "pet friendly" room (113). It had to be the smelliest, most disgusting place... More

Moving our daughter to Gainesville, Comfort Inn was very accommodating of my daughter's kittens without any extra charges. Our room, though a bit dated and somewhat worse for the wear was clean and surprisingly a very comfortable bed with lots of pillows for added comfort. I slept like a rock. Breakfast was good and for the first time at a... More
