I stayed here recently with my husband and 3 year old son for a wedding in Gainesville. It was perfect for us. We like to sleep in a separate room from our son (everyone sleeps better this way), so we get the one bedroom suite. It was important for us that there was a door to create two rooms instead of just one large studio-style suite. The only downside to the layout was that the bathroom was separate from the bedroom. If we needed to go to the bathroom after we put our son to bed, we had to open our bedroom door and risk waking him up. The complimentary breakfast was about what you'd expect - nothing fancy, but enough options where you could get what you need (pancakes, eggs, waffle maker, etc.). The location was perfect, it was very close to the highway and it was a short drive to where the wedding was (Plantation Hall). There was a Cracker Barrel right next door. The pool and hot tub are both indoor, which was convenient. The pool was a little cooler than I'd like but still enjoyable. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.

Karina and Ally were terrific and welcoming. They told us all we needed to know, checked us in quickly and never stopped smiling. There is a nice spread for breakfast. The location in Gainesville is great with easy access to all. We also love the cookies and coffee in the lobby!

The Country Inn in Gainesville, Florida was a great stay. The staff are friendly, professional, and efficient. A clean room with nice amenities. I only stayed one evening but will be back since our daughter is attending the University of Florida in Gainesville.

Went to Gainsville for preview at UF. The hotel was great! Staff was so friendly and helpful right from the start. The location was great, easy access to freeway and the University. (Not right next to UF but easy to get to.) The room seemed clean. Good value.

Fabulous hotel and welcome, terrible breakfast. The warm cookie welcome was nice and the staff always had a nice smile and greeting. Good size rooms, and amenities were plentiful. Would stay again, but need a better "country" breakfast.
