“We're staying here from now on”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2011

As a UF freshman parent I have been looking for a hotel that I can trust for my frequent visits to UF to visit my new Gator freshman. I tried several "quality" hotels in the area and they all fell short. I do not expect the ritz-carlton but I do expect clean, quiet and comfortable rooms. Country Inn surpassed my expectations. The first room I was given reeked of cigarette smoke but I was quickly given a different room with no smells. The beds are very comfy, the a/c is quiet and cold. Breakfast was great, as far as hotel breakfasts go. They had much better variety than most hotels. The morning rush kind of overwhelmed the kitchen staff but they did try to please. I have stayed at this property now for three different stays. All good.

We stayed one night at the Country Inn & Suites in Gainesville, FL, and we were very impressed with the service, the free breakfast, and the hotel itself.

I called on Friday to request an early check-in for our Sunday stay. On Sunday morning, we rode up from Orlando, and I called to say that we would definitely be arriving early. Not only was my request already logged in, but the woman I spoke with remembered me from our brief conversation days earlier. That is wonderful customer service.

The hotel was clean and comfortable, and extra towels and sheets for the sleeper sofa were included right off the bat. The free breakfast was a nice touch as well. Don't expect an omelet station, but there are plenty of choices, including a make-your-own waffle station. The indoor pool and jacuzzi can be used year-round.

We were impressed overall, and would certainly stay here again!

I've stayed here twice. The Country Inn is a well kept, attractive hotel with nicely appointed rooms, comfortable beds and a decent free breakfast. I've stayed at many hotels in Gainesville and Country Inn is consistently one of the best. It's also located near many restaurants and shops, right off I-75, and only a 10 minute drive from the University of Florida campus. You can't go wrong here.

Stopped in after driving 14 hours without a reservation on a Saturday night. We previously had picked up an Discount Motel Exit Guide from a rest area and a coupon was the deciding factor to stop here. We were happy that they had a suite available for us at a great price. We did pay additional for a third adult and a Saturday stay but still with the coupon it was a good rate. We enjoyed our suite with a king bed, and living area. I had to call the desk for additional pillows and they were delivered in less than 5 minutes. Loved the bedding, bathroom was large with lots of counter space. We love County Inn&Suites breakfasts. The hosts were talkative and friendly. We really appreciate the cooked oatmeal in the crockpot. Thats what keeps us coming back.
We have no complaints.

we stay in gainesville for two nights and found this hotel close to the interchange next to cracker barrel. we visited few other hotels before we decided this would be the one we would stay. What a great deal! The hotel looks fairly new. The front desk staff was professional and helpful. The beds were very comfortable, infact they had duvets. we slept extremly well for both nights. our room also had a micro/fridge and an electronic safe which stored our laptop.

The towels were nice and thick. Lots of counter space in the bathroom. Nice large flat screen tv.
The indoor heated pool and spa was a great enjoyment for my family

Breakfast was very good and they had at least three hot items, which changed every day - scrambled eggs, bacon, freshly made waffles, and the usual bagels, cold cereal, etc.

The high speed internet speed and the wifi worked very good as well. we definately enjoyed our stay.We also used their business center to print out some travel documents. They had two computers and printer. Also had a scanner, a fax and a large photocopy machine.

Would not hesitate to stay here again if we were in the area again.

The location is great, it's just by the exit 384 from I-75. We walked in to the lobby and we were stunt of the beautiful layout, there is stairs going to the second floor,a beautiful fire place,sofa,plants & etc. The extra amenities that you wont find in the other hotels,like indoor pool and gym. The room & bathroom is nice & clean,and better not forget to mention a big flat LCD TV. And lastly,on our way out, we stop by the breakfast room, & it was yummy. We enjoyed our stay in this hotel very much.
