I really enjoyed my stay at the Comfort Inn university in Gainesville. The hotel is well kept and the rooms are extremely nice and newly renovated. Also the staff is friendly and the front desk worker Rohan aided me multiple times during my stay and was one of the most helpful people I have come across.

Have always stayed at the Comfort Inn when visiting our son at UF. Superb customer service, rooms clean and large. Breakfast is always great. Love the place. Wish all of them were like this. Son has graduated thus won't be coming back there again.
