The Comfort Hearth in Gainesville, GA was located in a sketchy part of town, which should have been our first clue. We should have left without even checking in. It was only for 1 night, so we proceded to check in. Things went from bad to worse....I called Expedia after only being there for a few minutes, to ask for a refund. They would not refund my money. As I was talking to the Expedia representative, a police officer came to have a discussion with someone down the hall. The last straw was when we found bedbugs. I always check the mattresses upon first arrival in any hotel, looking for telltale marks from bedbugs (blood/poop? spots?). I found nothing. However, in hindsight, I guess the tiny bugs I killed in the bathroom were baby bedbugs, coming out of the walls (I have done plenty of research on bedbugs, but I didn't know what a baby one looked like). As we were sitting on the bed, watching TV, the adult bedbugs made their appearance. I wrapped one up in a tissue and took to the person on duty. The man at the desk said that people are always coming and going, the bugs could have come from anyone (as if that explains it?) I asked for a refund, and he would not comply. He offered to move us to another room. That was absolutely not an option. We packed and left. I am currently in the process of making sure I ddn't bring any home. All my stuff from the trip is sealed in plastic bags, waiting to wash/dry on hot. Thrown away a lot of stuff. What a nightmare.

Terrible !

Do not stay in this hotel! I reserved online and drove 18 hours to get there. Once I was there I asked to see the room before signing . It was disgusting so I canceled and the desk lady told me I would not be charged . To my surprise I was charged and Expedia can't do anything so I have to fight charges with my cc

Called to get price and when arrived was told a different one. Staff was new and tried to make it right. This place needs a lot of work from cleaning to paintING and replacing worn out items like the AC worked about half the time. It would come on and work for little while then shut off. It did this all long long. Was very stuffy in this room. It showed on line a coffee pot ref and micro in room but was not. . Looks like they are trying but have a long way to go for me to stay again. Sorry but was not happy at all.

A real let-down! I should have read the reviews.

Posted Apr 14, 2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Cleanliness, maintenance.
Location: Near downtown Gainesville. We were visiting family so we don't have tourist suggestions.
We reserved two nights at this hotel based on location and moderate price. We failed to notice that cancellation was 24 hours in advance. We were first assigned a room whose door didn't close properly and which had an unpleasant smell. The second room was a bit better, but it was dingy and the floor felt nasty when I walked on it barefoot. Traffic noise was terrible, but when we asked about a room on the back side we were told that those rooms were all "smoking" rooms. We then tried to cancel our second night - that was when we learned our credit card had already been charged and that we couldn't make that change after 4PM and still get a refund for the second night. We checked out anyway. Ironically, we were able to get a room at a nearby, much nicer hotel for a special AAA deal for only $15 more. Breakfast was a joke too - we went across the street to McDonalds instead.

Not the best

They need to make sure they have the rooms they post online before they allow anyone to reserve them.
