Very clean and affordable hotel right on Riverwalk, close to downtown attractions. Outstanding service at the breakfast, and very friendly hotel staff, too. A bit confusing to enter the hotel parking lot, though.

The lobby, with it's cozy seating and chandelier, is deceptively elegant. The walls in my room were in poor condition with many scuffs, dried drips of who knows what, and even a couple unrepaired holes. The beds were old spring mattresses with no back support. If elevator access is important to you, that's not an option here. The hotel itself... More

We are Elite members of Choice hotels so we stay at quite e few of their hotels. The room was clean and nicely decorated, the bed was comfortable. The hallway had some funky smell, it could use some new carpeting. The staff was very polite.

Great location! Next to a river and several picturesque bridges. (Not heavily trafficked). Ehab, the front desk guy was superb! It is so nice to meet 'People who give a darn!'. Really good Indian Restaurant 30 steps away!

Comfortable room. Nothing huge, but comfortable. I had to use the Inn as a resting point after leaving the Appalachian Trail due to being sick. It's a comfortable walk from downtown. There is an Indian Restaurant on the property that looked pretty nice. It appeared to have a full service bar which is always a plus. In my condition, I... More

My wife and I stayed at the Comfort Inn Riverfront on Friday and Saturday of Labor Day weekend. We were a bit nervous because we usually try to stay in higher caliber places, but this Inn really was a great value. The room was clean and had a refrigerator and microwave. The shower was new and really nice. The inn... More

The ceiling light fixture over the bathtub contained large dead bugs which was creepy. Waffles, hot eggs, and sausages were good. The rest of the breakfast selection was ok. The front desk receptionist, Ehab, was very polite and professional. Check was easy.

Front desk was very helpful at booking and check-in was quick. Bedding & towels are great, especially at this price point. Mattresses themselves were a bit sunken in - but not too bad. Location was so convenient to Riverfront Park & City Island Park, as well as walking to restaurants and the Capitol. Breakfast was good, but get there by... More
