Thank you for the feedback regarding your recent stay at our location. I apologize about your experience at our location. Unfortunately, our card reader did stop working during your stay with us. We did have the new card reader sent overnight but unfortunately did not arrive on time. This is not a normal occurrence and we tried our best to accommodate our guest by having extra staff members available to assist our guest in and out of their accommodations. I apologize that you were not asked for identification when entering your room. This should have been done for your security. We do have the new card reader at this time and hope that you can give us another chance to show you we can do better. Thank you for your feedback it will be used to make improvements for our location. Thank you again and we hope to see you soon.

This is a Comfort Inn, relatively new, located just off Interstate 75 and situated convenient to numerous restaurants.

I stayed here on my way South to Naples, stopping at the end of a day of driving, looking for a good night's sleep, and I wasn't disappointed. The room was qui

Thank you for the feedback about your recent stay. We are happy to see that you enjoyed your recent visit. We aim to exceed our guests expectations and we are happy to see we met yours. We renovated our location last year and replaced all the furniture and bedding in our rooms. It is great to see that our guests approve of the upgrading. We do provide complimentary cookies, popcorn, and candy for our guests to show our appreciation. Our guests have many options to choose from for accommodations. We are honored you chose us. I hope that we can accommodate you again when in the area. Thank you and we look forward to your next arrival.

I understand they have a free ahuttle to the Gator games. Can you bring a cooler and a few chairs on the shuttle?
Well, It can hold space but will determine what all everyone brings and how much room when you get on. Should be enough but can always double check with them. The front desk is always nice.

"The elevator is quiet so it really doesn't matter how near or far your room is located away from it."
"Be sure to stay in the front away from the highway and the fourth floor is great."
"The rooms are moder and large with no carpeting on the floor."
