We stayed here last year and enjoyed our stay, so made reservations to stay here again this year when we passed through Gainesville. The hotel is pet friendly. There are areas to walk a dog next to the motel. The front desk staff was accommodating. Be aware the hotel is undergoing remodeling. They should charge remodeling rates, because it really... More

Last stop on our road trip from Chicago to Sanibel was Gainesville. We spent the night at the Comfort Inn and were very pleased with our room. Then, as we were preparing for the last leg of our trip, we got a hole in the tire of our brand new vehicle. Nobody in northern Florida had a replacement tire. The... More

On our way from cold north to warmer south, and we chose this hotel because we stayed here about five years ago. It was close to the expressway and there are numerous places to eat near. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the girl on the desk was extremely friendly and respectful.

Really close to Interstate 75 so road noise was very loud especially the big trucks. Night I was there the outside lights were out and it was very dark and scary for a person traveling alone. Room was nice but heat was hard to control.

Space in room is good, but cleanliness is extremely lacking. I wrote "hi" on the bottom of a floor lamp, and no sweeping takes place in bathroom. The carpet is filthy. "Pet friendly" rooms aren't the best at hotels (which is a shame) but it doesn't mean the room should not be cleaned appropriatedly. We've been at worse - Baymont... More

Thank you for your feedback about your stay with us. I am truly apologetic about the cleanliness of your accommodations. This is not our standard of a clean. I will personally have a discussion with our housekeeping department to inform them that this is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. As to the carpet not being clean, we are... More

Actually ended up liking this motel in spite of the remodeling mess. I think their contractors are slobs! None of the finishing touches are done! Paint left on beautiful new updated tiles floors. Left old doors w paint spills! New painted walls w old ugly switch plates!!! Mortar stain left on walls! Entry way dated. Cluttered. Luckily the friendliness of... More

My wife and I had to make a trip to the University of Florida and needed a place that was convenient to that location as well as eating establishments. The Comfort Inn had it all. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They are pet friendly and with us traveling with our two pets this was a must. The management... More

Nice hotel for 1 night stop in Gainesville. They are currently undergoing renovations. It is located convenient to the university, restaurants, and shopping. The room was very quiet, and the bed was very comfortable. Very good value for the price.
