“Nice hotel”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

I had never stayed in a Country Inn before, but was pleased. The lobby was nice. The hallway on our floor smelled strange (almost like strong body odor), but the room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly. The location was ok, there was not much in the immediate area. Overall good, but not great.

We have stayed at many Country inns and enjoy them. This one is larger than most and we have stayed there several times. Overall very good place to stay other than the fact they keep rates high because it is close to University of Florida and apparently they can charge a premium and still fill rooms. Once we got there late and ended up with a room that had very bad odor from a smoker. Personal we have run into there were solid in doing there job but did not give the extra feeling of hospitality that you hope for and get in most Country Inns. But if your staying in Gainesville and the rates are reasonable at that time this is a very good choice of where to stay.

Room Tip: Get a non smoking room.

I planned to stay in town for one night at the Country Inn. When my trip was extended another day, I opted to stay somewhere else. The bed was adequate, towels and room temp were okay. The hotel lobby and hotel were ovens. Internet, check-in and breakfast were disappointing. The place where I stayed the second day offered a full breakfast at a more reasonable price.

Nothing bad to say about this place. Good location, nice room. Great breakfast. Right beside a Cracker Barrel.

We often stay at this hotel when visiting our children at the U F. The location is convenient, the rooms are comfortable and clean.

I also think everyone should join the free club they offer as they give you nice perks.

We will be back as they always treat you right.

Room Tip: If you book online they will try and honor any special request you make.

Reviewed 25 November 2011

Very clean hotel with nice amenities in the room. Bed had nice sheets and comforter, but could use a pillow top mattress like Hampton Inn has. Nice flat screen tv. Shower should have more pressure. Towels were of good quality. Pool and spa were nice and clean. Major negative was the breakfast. The eggs were not scrambled, but prepared patties that they heat up. They has little micro cubes of ham, which looked awful. Took them forever to replenish the potatoes. I was expecting so much more from the breakfast, but was terribly disappointed. The Hampton Inn is much better, but also more expensive. Other than the breakfast, a terrific place to stay.

nilesh p, Manager at Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Gainesville, responded to this review, 7 December 2011
We appreciate the good comments you have made in your review, one of the concern you express was having a pillow top mattress, In fact we do have brand new mattress form pad on every bed. Our beds are very good and majority of our guest tells us how well they slept. Our duvet and choice of pillow we offer are unique in this industry – particularly in Gainesville. We are very surprised about the experience you had with our Breakfast. We are extremely proud of the high quality products we offer in our breakfast. This is one of the most important amenities therefore we do not cut corners. In fact the varieties of food and various options available are far superior then the Hampton brand. Our guest satisfaction surveys and other travel websites rating shows our hotel constantly rated above many Hilton brands(including Hampton) in Gainesville. Our breakfast is very liked by our guest and is very highly spoken about on many trip advisor posting. It was unfortunate that it was less then desirable for you, anyway we appreciate your business and hopefully next time we can prove you wrong. We will serve you the best breakfast available, trust us. We hope you will try us again. Our breakfast hostess will go out of their way to make it right. All you have to do is ask for service and tell us during breakfast.
