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

Stayed here 2 nights for a family trip from Ny. Rates were great considering we booked last minute and it was UFs spring break. We were greeted by Alisha upon arrival and let me just say she is awesome! She as well as Nicole really went above and beyond for my family. Our room was clean, you could tell renovations... More

Location is very good close to the plaza. Hotel is older, but well maintained. Free parking, free wifi, adequate breakfast. Free popcorn and cookies all the time. Staff is friendly. Noise level was low. It has an outdoor non heated pool. Bed, comfortable, but I would suggest to hotel to consider different pillows. During football season, they have free shuttle... More

We stayed here on our way to Marco Island. It is an easy find just off I-75. No problem with parking or checking in. We were in a king bedroom with a small kitchenette which we really appreciated. Breakfast was superb with a very friendly staff that took the time and effort to make me a waffle which was outstanding.... More

My son will be attending UF this fall. We booked this hotel due to the reviews. I must say this hotel is a bit older but well kept. The customer service is the best. Being greeted by Nicole at check in made things alot easier for my son and I because we knew nothing of the area. Nicole gave us... More

In town for the Florida Relays and was looking for something close by. This fit the bill perfectly! The room was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was welcoming and very accomodating! We were able to check in when we needed to, and also were able to extend our checkout time. They had a nice breakfast setup,... More

I was having a really bad day in Gainesville. Went to another hotel where I was supposed to have a free night, and it turned out to be terrible and very shady. While in that room and trying to get a refund, I saw a commercial for a promotion that Choice Hotels was running for free nights. When I finally... More
