This is an old style hotel/motel where you park yor car at the front door.. Staff are friendly and rooms, although fairly sparsly equipped are clean and comfortable. Like a lot of places now, a continental breakfast is served in a small area that sometimes cannot accommodate everybody.

Staying here is convenient to all sights. A little bit of drive to wharf but mall and eating venues across the street. Bus accessible. Good parking. Staff pleasant and helpful to sight seeing. Trees surround the facility so very serene. Breakfast and exercise room convenient to all rooms.

The place was beautiful and well kept, good breakfast. The room was very small though. They had dogs in next room that barked a lot. The staff was helpful and gave us maps and info on the area. I enjoyed the area a lot and the room was a good value for the area

Musty smelly room. Limited wifi access. Placed in a room way in the back down some steps. Very dark back there. Breakfast options were limited and space small. Had to walk outside and to a different part of the building for breakfast. Would try another hotel along the strip instead of this particular comfort inn.

This must be a newly purchased motel by Choice Hotels. The room did not meet up to the standards of any of the Choice Hotels we have stayed at. Needed painting, filling of cracks, better lighting, better shower, etc. Hopefully repairs will help.

Continental breakfast was terrible. The eggs tasted fishy and the selection was poor, but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The location was not near the water, but was convenient to get back to the water.

The bedding was crisp and white and the king bed was very very comfortable. The breakfast was extrordinary as well.... More
