Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Gainesville
Ranked #3 of 47 Hotels in Gainesville
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2014

We had a group stay at this hotel on a Saturday evening for a sports event. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel was clean. The location was convenient to the highway and to eating locations. The lobby is a little small and does not offer a place to visit with guests. The rooms were basic but spacious. The beds were also comfortable. We had a few issues with the air conditioner not cooling in one room and another room had the door knob fall off. Its a well used hotel being close to a university. Overall our stay was pleasant.

This is a very nice hotel. Front office staff super engaging and wanting to make my stay nice. I'd stay here again! The location to the university is great. Continental breakfast was good, fresh fruit, oatmeal and waffles.

Thank you for the kind review. Since you were here visiting the University, I should expect to see you periodically for the next four years? Go Gators!

This was our second stay at this hotel first in June when we took our son to orientation at UF and 2nd when we we moved him up in August. We were convinced that this is a place that we will stay every time we are in Gainesville. Staff is Excellent, Friendly and Courteous. Their Breakfast has been consistently good. Both front desk staff, kitchen and cleaning staff are very courteous. Karina our front desk girl was the best. Made us fresh coffee in an instant and even when we wanted to change room and she could not as hotel was fully booked she communicated with us so well that we were satisfied that she was looking out for us. Thanks Carlson your investment is paying great dividend.

Easy access to I-75, staff was exceptional with our requests which made our workshop a success. I will be using their facilities again in the future. When doing business in Gainesville Florida, this should be your destination stay.

After a long day of driving from Ohio on the way to a funeral, we were looking forward to a comfortable nights sleep. The hotel was clean and the breakfast was great. Probably one of the best we have had as hotel breakfasts go. I would stay again. I thought it was a little pricey, but that is the way of hotels in the area.

This was my third time staying at this particular hotel, ALWAYS a great experience! Staff is helpful as well as friendly! The rooms have always been clean and comfy! To me breakfast is the icing on the cake! A very good selection. You can have a decent size hot breakfast (mine contained eggs, bacon, and fried potatoes) while my husband had oatmeal, yogurt, and a blueberry muffin, and of course coffee and juice!

Clean and good breakfast. But look online for better deals. Calling for reservation and you get an expensive price. Close to University of Florida. Nice pool. TV service was very limited to just HBO. Most hotels have more than one I thought.

Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate your thoughts, I know rates can be overwhelming at times. We do have many special event dates which increase the rates. We do stay competitive with other comparable properties. I hope we can get you a rate you're more comfortable with on your next trip.
