This was my first stay with this hotel chain, there were some things that I liked and some I did not care for at all, unfortunetly the minuses outweighed the pluses in my opinion.
First of all, the main web site for Comfort suites claims "oversized suites with seperate living and sleeping area's that allow you to strech out and relax in", which is quite misleading at least at this location. The rooms are in no way oversized, in fact they are on the cramped side by US standards. and as far as seperate living and sleeping areas, it is really just one room with a half wall seperating the beds and a tiny loveseat and coffee table. Bathroom was very basic and also on the small side.
The two queen bed room that I was in claimed it slept 4 adults which would be un believeably crowded, I can't imagine anyone being able to stretch out or relax for that matter as the site claims.
The have a pool onsite but I'm not sure why they bothered as it is the smallest pool I have ever seen at a hotel (Including motel 6) it looked to be aprox 10 ft wide and 4ft deep at the deep end. This area of the country gets absolutly sweltering during the summer months and I can imagine the water in that tiny shallow pool being like a hot tub without the jets in summer which couldn't possibly be refreshing.
The hotel is located off by itself well out of the established hotel zone in an older urban / residential type area aprox 8- 10 miles from either of the main casino's, didn't look to be the safest area of town either.
There were a few pluses and it's only fair to mention them as well, Although the carpets were noticably worn, the rooms were otherwise clean and the beds were very comfortable. The free breakfast was one of the best I have seen in a while, clearly a cut above the average.
The hotel staff was very friendly and they have a full service cocktail lounge on site that is open in the evenings which is always a big plus in my book, unfortunetly though even with these important pluses I still came away with the feeling that there was nothing really here that would cause me to return next time I was in the area.
