This Comfort Inn was awesome! Clean rooms, friendly staff, delicious breakfast. The pool is small but great for little kids. The rate (one adult, two children) is unbeatable for what we got. Highly recommended and I will definitely return!! A++

“Rooms have been renovated lately but I always check to ensure that the flow of water in the bath-tub is good. Another idea could be to check if your room faces the front (better view) or back...not a big issue.”

“I was on the 4th floor w/2 bus groups occupying other rooms. Maybe if I'd known, I would have asked for another room.”
  • Would prefer a few larger pillows, than many small
  • Nice view, good temp control, wake up call
  • Fridge, great TV picture, safe (you're charged, so dispute it!)
  • Double shower curtain: room in good condition
  • The usual ammenities: clean and neat
