I had an emergency at home, had water in my home and no AC . I needed a pet friendly, local hotel. I called several and they charged $25 and up to bring a pet. I finally called the Comfort Inn in Gainesville, Florida. I had a room, king size bed, clean and a full breakfast menu every day. Tiffany... More

We stayed here for 1 night in June. Upon arriving very early in the day I took a chance to see if we could check in since we would be at the hospital for the remainder of the day. The desk clerk was very friendly and understanding. He said "sure" where you would you like to have your room. I... More

We stay here each time we come to Gainesville. During Gator baseball season that adds up quickly. We enjoy the staff, Ariana and Andrew are usually on when we arrive. They treat us like extended family. During our last visit we pulled into the driveway and Ariana had our room ready by the time I walked into the lobby, including... More

This comfort inn is avarage in appearance and somewhat outdated but the staff are very helpful, friendly and on the ball. Our room was adequate and comfortable but the bathroom needs some updating. A reconditioning of the room is needed to receive a higher rating. Breakfast was fine and the price was reasonable. We would stay here again if in... More

VERY pleasant and accommodating staff. Called another place. $10 cheaper but based on 6th sense I paid the extra $10 and stayed here and couldn't be happier. Large spacious room for 4 adult women. Very comfortable. Wonderful showers. Small kitchenette. Everything spotless. Well worth the extra money. Nice deluxe continental breakfact with I nice dining area.

This hotel is absolutely amazing!! I have never stayed somewhere where the staff treats you more like friends and family then guest. Tiffany is awesome! If more hotels had a manager like Jay then they would be in pretty good shape (: deff coming back every time.

Only stopped in here as was getting to late to drive on home. Would have loved one of the 2 bedroom suites but not available here. Still the rooms were nice and staff was friendly. Bed was higher at foot than at head by about 4 inches in room 200 but still comfortable. Pillows didn't seem the same as other... More

After a long day's drive, we stopped in Gainesville to find a room for the night. We inquired at 4 different hotels until we stopped at the Comfort Inn, which was considerably cheaper than the others. This is a very nice hotel. The room was very clean and the breakfast was more than adequate. All the employees were pleasant and... More
