We consulted Tripadvisor to choose somewhere to stay in Gainesville as we drove north from the Keys. The recent reviews were really helpful but don't be put off by the refurbishing work taking place - the smell of new carpet was the worst we had to put up with and it was lovely to have a "new" room. Room was...

We stayed here last year and enjoyed our stay, so made reservations to stay here again this year when we passed through Gainesville. The hotel is pet friendly. There are areas to walk a dog next to the motel. The front desk staff was accommodating. Be aware the hotel is undergoing remodeling. They should charge remodeling rates, because it really...

Last stop on our road trip from Chicago to Sanibel was Gainesville. We spent the night at the Comfort Inn and were very pleased with our room. Then, as we were preparing for the last leg of our trip, we got a hole in the tire of our brand new vehicle. Nobody in northern Florida had a replacement tire. The...

On our way from cold north to warmer south, and we chose this hotel because we stayed here about five years ago. It was close to the expressway and there are numerous places to eat near. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the girl on the desk was extremely friendly and respectful.

Really close to Interstate 75 so road noise was very loud especially the big trucks. Night I was there the outside lights were out and it was very dark and scary for a person traveling alone. Room was nice but heat was hard to control.

Space in room is good, but cleanliness is extremely lacking. I wrote "hi" on the bottom of a floor lamp, and no sweeping takes place in bathroom. The carpet is filthy. "Pet friendly" rooms aren't the best at hotels (which is a shame) but it doesn't mean the room should not be cleaned appropriatedly. We've been at worse - Baymont...

Thank you for your feedback about your stay with us. I am truly apologetic about the cleanliness of your accommodations. This is not our standard of a clean.
