Definitely a hidden gem at just $61 a night. My friend had wanted to stay at the other Comfort Inn she was familiar with, but we were both delightfully pleased when we arrived at this one and it was even cleaner than the other one.
I found this hotel through Tripadvisor and I can see why it was ranked #6 out of 44 hotels in Gainesville. Very friendly staff, very nice clean rooms, and even includes a kitchenette complete with microwave and fridge. Nice! They also have a computer in the lobby so you can book on http://hotels.com and get some discounts on your reservation. Hehehe.
It's a bit out of the way from the nightlife in downtown, but its close enough to campus. And a short trip on I-75 brings the mall within close reach, too.
Only cons were the shower floor was a tad dingy and they didn't have bandaids (my friend had a freak accident with the zipper on her makeup case ripping off 2 layers of skin!). I'd stay again, but next time I'll pack bandaids.
