This is one of the best places I have been. A place where we feel at home, with wooden decorations, nice lobby, nice staff. I was there during the week, so no noise problems with young children. Breakfast was good, room was clean, bed was comfortable and internet was reliable and fast.

This is way overpriced (~$200/night) for what you get. The beds and linens are very nice and comfortable. But for rates like that, you shouldn't have to make a bed (the pull-out sleeper in the room), you should be able to get water pressure from the shower (ours was gravity powered), you should be able to get hot water (warm...

This was our first stay at this hotel. We come to the area monthly so we thought we would try this hotel out. The rooms were very clean and the check-in went well. The only thing was lots of kids screaming and running up and down the hallways until 10:30pm. I understand that this hotel has a nice large water... More

Cindy, Thank you for doing the review. Your review was very polite and you're right, the weekend you were here is always one of the absolute busiest weekends of the year for us. There was a huge basketball tournament in town on top of what is already the peak of the winter weekend busy season and as you said we... More

The staff is incredibly nice! The water park is so much fun and the beds are some of the most comfortable you can find in a chain. Plus the fact they have a full concession stand AND an indoor outdoor hottub, I know for sure I will be coming back again!

Jacob, that’s as nice a review as a person could ask for, thank you. All the beds were replaced last spring with brand new Serta's and we have gotten wonderful comments about them. I bet it was also a surprise to find both firm and soft pillows on each bed, a program Choice Hotels started in 2014 and been a... More

Great Hotel! Cleans rooms, cute decor, and fun water park. Our 5 year old and 1 year old had a blast. All the staff was very friendly and helpful too. My only suggestion would be to have breakfast stocked with fresh food at 930 as well.

The room we stayed in on our visit was a great room. Clean and comfortable. My youngest that was with thought that the pool park was good, however the 12 year old said not so much.

I have stayed in several hotels this year for various reasons. This is the first hotel that has provided adequate plug ins for all the electronics that accompany a person when they travel.

The room was very large and decorated in an up north cabin style. It had all the amenities, including a room safe which we didn't use but paid an additional fee for Bed and pillows extremely comfortable and the room was very clean and quiet. The water park would be great for kids. If that is what you are interested... More

Thank you for the great review. We get many, many comments on the decor and we love to hear them. The fish pattern on the carpet, the log furniture and all the Up North canoe lamps and extra touches definitely are well accepted by the overwhelming majority of our guests.

Just returned from our 2nd time staying at Comfort Suites and I can't tell you how wonderful it was again. We originally were staying at another hotel in the area and extended our stay.
