My husband and I have been staying on/off in the comfort inn for 2 months due to work relocation. During the time here we have received excellent customer service, especially at the front desk from Tracy.

Rooms are very clean and comfortable, which is my priority. Tequila at front desk is great and makes checking in fast and easy. Would grant an extra star if common areas received a little bit more attention to detail.

This hotel was amazing. We had decided to stay at the hotel for two reasons: 1. it was our half way point to Fort Myers and 2. It was pet friendly. It was so friendly and welcoming to our family that I would stay again. The room was immaculate and big and my dog wasn't even nervous staying there. It...

Stayed at the Comfort Inn University earlier this month for two nights for my daughter's graduation from UF. I called ahead after landing late in Orlando to make sure my advanced registration was still in place. The front desk personnel assured me my room was reserved and told me to drive safely during my two hour drive. I thought that...

I have never stayed at a better Comfort Inn location. The staff was so fantastic in providing great service. Tracy was particularly helpful. From checking in to assisting us with any special needs that we faced during this very stressful strip for my father's surgery, Tracy and the staff at Comfort Inn were the best of many great features.
