This is the 3rd time we've stayed at this motel. It has recently been remodeled. The pet friendly rooms that we stay in are very nice, not run down like some motels. The rooms are large with an extra sink, microwave and refrigerator. Lighting is excellent. The staff is so friendly and go out of their way to ensure a...

We booked this hotel as a one night stay over on our way to southern Florida. From the moment we walked in we knew we made a good choice! Staff was very welcoming and nice. They had fresh popcorn and snacks in the lobby - that was free! - and we took some up to the room for TV time!...

This hotel provided a great place as a base for our trips to Shands hospital. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. The rooms were very nice with the microwave, refrigerator and kitchen sink area. Also the little extras were very welcome. Pleasant surprise.

I have stayed at this Comfort Inn several times while in Gainesville overnight for work.

I could fill the page with good things about the facility and the staff but I can sum in up by saying that I have never been happier with an accommodation.

Writing a review for this excellent facility has been on my to do list for 2 weeks. Now I have forgotten the details needed for a truly lucid review. But the fact that I'm writing anyway is a testament to how impressed we were. What we both will never forget is how we felt when we climbed into the beds...

We stopped here on our way south to Fort Lauderdale. This hotel was quite lovely with a pleasant staff, good breakfast, express check-out, coffee in room. What more could we want? It was convenient to the Internet and surrounded by a variety of restaurants and shopping.

For many years we always stayed at the Cabot Lodge whenever we were in Gainesville but it was bought out and the prices have gone up considerably.

“My room was a double queen and the mattress was wonderful. My daughter stayed in the room across the hall with a single King. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the room and how spacious it was.”

“All rooms are BEAUTIFUL! But, if you want a pet friendly room call ahead, I think they only have 7 to 10 pet friendly rooms.”
