Just a clean room, no pool, no amenities, mediocre breakfast. This hotel has been recently renovated, so it is fresh condition. Refrigerators in room are a nice touch. Staff is friendly. Fast food and a local family restaurant within walking distance.

As senior citizens traveling with 2 heavy suitcases and two heavy computer bags, we had booked a first floor room, and paid extra for the privilege as this facility has no elevator. When we arrived, we were told they did not have any available rooms on the first floor, which we had reserved. Too bad, but reservations were not really... More

Needed a place to spend one night while travelling. Clean, hotel with typical hotel rooms. Comfortable beds, nice breakfast, friendly staff. What you would expect from a Comfort Inn. We would be happy to return.

The hotel recently has been renovated similar to other Comfort Inn's elsewhere, with the room decor still looking to be cookie cutter in appearance. Our room was clean, but not particularly inviting, and the lighting either interfered with the television due to reflection or, when the bed lamp was not on, the desk lamp didn't provide sufficient light to read....

Roadtrip with friends, stayed in this hotel, wonderful staff and very helpful, breakfast was delicious. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Location of this hotel was perfect for us, everything was near by. This was my first stay at this particular hotel but it will not be my last.

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
