“Great Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2011

Read other reviews from Trip Advisor. They were good reviews and they were correct. Nice place. Rooms were clean and good size. Nice built in Micro and Fridge with small sink. Front desk staff very helpful and willing to please. Continental breakfast was well stocked and attendant greated you and offered her help. Shielded from Interstate so the traffice noise was not a problem although my room was other side of Interstate

My husband and I stayed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Night. Our daughter and her husband live in Gainesville and we were visiting but wanted our own place to stay. The young man at the desk was very welcoming and friendly, as was the rest of the staff at the hotel. Everything was clean and comfortable. We had a wonderful holiday in Gainesville!

This hotel was super. Clean room, nice shower, decent breakfast and great WI-FI. It had an adequate exercise room and a good TV. And the room came with a microwave & fridge. Really liked the location because we could walk to dinner (at the Gainesville Ale House, which I also highly recommend!). And it was a very short drive to get to the Museum of Natural History. It was also practically on campus if you wanted to tour the University. Very reasonably priced, too. There's no pool or whirlpool, for what it's worth.

Second time in this hotel in 3 years and it continues to be our choice for Gainesville. Very good location near highway and eateries. Good quiet rooms and friendly staff. Sometimes the hotel get VERY FULL and the lobby area is confining. The breakfast area is one of the smallest I have seen at Comfort Inn. Even when the hotel is lightly occupied, there is difficulty getting food items from the constricting nook and the tables are mostly filled... the management needs to spend some money to improve this situation and then it would deserve the Trip Advisor ranking of #1 in Gainesville.

Very nice, moderately priced motel in Gainseville. Arrived before noon for a football game the next day and they found a room for me. When we were looking for a restaurant that evening, the desk clerk offered discounts and suggestions for nearby places. On the Sunday after the game, the woman who runs the small breakfast area came out to me after the official closing time and asked if I wanted breakfast because she saw me looking in. Very good service for a basic, not fancy, good place to spend the night. If you're just looking for a room and free breakfast, this is a great choice.
