OMG, the walls are so thin. You can hear the neighbor on the telephone, the to show they are watching, if they snore. You might as well just sleep together cause the thin walls give you ZERO privacy. The room was modern and pleasant. Updated decor. Excellent size room. Love he complimentary snacks and cookies at check in, what a...

Staff was exceptional. Hotel was the usual we have come to expect from Comfort Inns. Margurita went out of her way to assure our comfort. Rose was very cordial and professional in every effort to be certain that all our needs had been met and observed her doing similar for other guests.

Absolutely in love with the room and hotel. Best part was being accommodated by Ms. Tracy on a suite. Totally made my day and my thanksgiving the best ever. Near I-75 and all shopping/restaurants on archer rd.

We have stayed at Comfort inns before, always a positive impression. The only reason we rated it very good instead of excellent was the road noise from interstate 75, (back of building) We realize hotels want to be within reach of the interchange. Maybe the windows need to be replaced? But we know most rooms have a heat/A/C unit that...

Our main reason that we picked out this hotel was because we needed a place to stay with our cat. Our " Pet Friendly " room was great. I liked the bare floors, which made it a lot easier to clean between guests. The breakfast was good, had a lot of variety. The young man that worked in the breakfast...

I have been staying in Comfort Inns for over 40 years in US and Canada and this was by far the best one yet. Everything was up to date and the breakfast and snacks were amazing and so was the quality! Also a shout out to Tracy who was very professional and accommodating at check-in. Will definitely be back next...

I highly recommend this hotel for a place to stay in Gainesville. Excellent value. Very clean and has many amenities. Our daughter had an extended stay at Shands hospital and we stayed at a horrible hotel before coming here. We will definitely be back.

It is a basic fact that no matter how nice the remodel is, no matter how nice the people that work here are. You misjudged how truly important it is to be in a room that is dark and quiet. The light that comes into the room is truly ridiculous, however the noise coming from the freeway had to be...

Warm cookies and fresh popcorn greeted us upon arrival. The room was clean and hot breakfast was plentiful. When we checked out Tracy was very sweet! Would stay again and recommend to friends and family.
