This is the worse hotel i have ever stayed at. I would never in life stay at a Comfort Inn again. This was my first time and i'll make sure it's my/our last. Calvin Greene, the manager is the most ghetto manager I have ever met. we booked for 3 nights and ended up staying only 1 night. People fighting... More

The hotel staff was rude. The keys had to be reprogramed each day. The rooms has a bed and a TV.. Nothing much else. The door had a large crack under the door so privacy was a huge issue. The hot tub doesn't work and the pool needed cleaning.The neighborhood was scary.

Staff were friendly and helpful, pool and hot tub were a pleasant surprise. An older hotel but well maintained.

Stayed at this hotel with spouse as part of a larger group meeting there for the weekend. The place is a dump, and the corporate owners should get on this franchisee's back to update this place. Lobby is quite nice, and that's where the deception begins. We requested a refrigerator in the room (extra charge) when the reservation was made... More

Rates for a conference were about $70/night including taxes (conference/AAA/Governemnt rate). Room safe had to be unlocked. Tub didn't drain adequately, four of 13 gym machines did not work for duration of my 4 day stay, including that gym TV remote was missing batteries. Desk staff quite friendly and provided leads on multiple places that would deliver different types of... More

It's not Marriott, but you get clean bed for very resonable price. Stuff was friendly for the most part... Free breakfast was ok had to pay extra for the hot one but it was worth it. I loved the indoor pool (didn't use it but it looks really nice). I didn't really like the area, i would't go there for... More
