Highly recommend this hotel. Very comfortable rooms, cozy and inviting. Newly updated furniture, very comfy bed and fluffy pillows. Only negative would be the heating system needs updating. Friendly staff and very accommodating. Pleasure to stay here.

I stayed at the Comfort Inn for 2 nights. In this time I encountered some of the best staff and customer service I have ever received in a hotel. The breakfast staff was by far the highlight. Friendly, accommodating and generous. Above and beyond the call of duty. Accommodations were lovely as well but it was the staff that put... More

Since their recent renovations they have been very nice and helpful. I stayed for 10 days and they made my stay so very nice as I was there cause my mom was in the hospital.

I booked a 3 night stay at this property as I was attending an event in the area. I booked my room directly with the hotel over the phone. The reservation process was friendly and the staff member made sure that I got the best available rate. I note that other reviewers found the hotel on the expensive side, but... More

We stopped at this Comfort Inn late at night and from our past experience with other Comfort Inn's we figured it would be up to par. While the beds were quite comfortable, the bathrooms were rather lacking in the clean department. There was gunk and hair bristles left behind around the faucet from one of the past guests shaving, it... More

I sincerely apologize for the housekeeping issue and guarantee that the Housekeeping Supervisor will be made aware. Staff retraining will then follow. We will soon be under renovation and the free hot breakfast will be introduced. The dining room will also be increased in size. When we are fully renovated I hope you will return to compare your stay experience.... More

Stayed for two nights and, much like I've come to expect from Comfort Inns, the bed was comfortable, the staff friendly, and the location convenient. The decor is tired, the carpet stained and no real "extras" but it was adequate. Far too small breakfast area but decent offering. Overall no major issues but nothing to rave about.

Clean, comfortable and quiet motel. Well located with restaurant Tim Horton's and others establishments within a few minutes walk. It is a typical Comfort Inn designed Motel so if you expect something else this is not your location. I understand it is also being renovated this summer. .
