First of all it was wonderful to be able to stay in a hotel that allows pets in a non smoking room. The rate was reasonable, the facility seemed a bit dated but was very clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Although the free breakfast was included it was poor quality compared to other hotels that I have... More

We unknowingly, arrived a day after a huge Florida State football game. We were able to get a room and were pleasantly surprised. The large room had a huge couch and sitting area and a very comfortable bed. We were a little disappointed at the cleanliness of the walls, which were evidence of lots of party spills that were built... More

We stay at this hotel whenever in the area. It's tucked back off the main road so is very quiet. Fresh warm cookies and popcorn greet you and the desk staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms show some typical wear of an older hotel, but ours was very clean. The towels were plush and the bed and pillows... More

Main reason for a hotel is to get a good sleep. The beds and pillows were great. Suggest an even number room because they are away from the expressway. The shower was good but the showers had a little mold on the walls. All hotel employees were pleasant

Special thanks to the folks at Comfort Inn University. We have stayed there many times and this time my wife went back to the room early while I went to the game The TV had some difficulties picking up the Gators Game in our room. Something to do with the programing on the TV as the other channels worked fine.... More

Stayed at this hotel during our visit to Gainesville. The hotel was located in a great area, they had a nice breakfast buffet and nice staff. Unfortunately, our room, 111, was dirty. It looked like it had not been dusted in months, no one had cleaned the nightstands or the phone in the room, the shower curtain smelled and the... More

Crumbs. Powder from prior people. How hard is it to move the night table to vacuum people's crumbs? Wash the shower too. And change the frig which sounds like the ocean waves. I'm so tired or otherwise I would have complained.

We decided to stay here based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. Tiffany was very sweet. They are pet friendly. The breakfast was awesome. They provide a lot of pillows! If we ever come back this way, we will definitely stay here again.

We stayed for one night in July while visiting UF, paying around $90 (advance booking). The hotel was about 10-12 minutes from the University, near a Target and other shopping and chain restaurants. I found the hotel to be very clean and the bed was comfortable. Our room was right next to the highway but I wasn't bothered by the... More
