Hotel looks old and worn, but was under renovation on the exterior and lobby. Parking is rather cramped, and parking for the back of the building looks iffy. It's not a confidence-builder to see a sign warning that hotel is not responsible for theft or vandalism of vehicles. There were a dozen or so people standing around the back lot... More

My husband & I had brief business to take care of in Rocky Mount and stayed here one night in August in a king room (smoking). I always pull back hotel room sheets & check the mattress seams for evidence of bedbugs before I go to sleep, and this room/bed checked out fine. The room was fine, the staff were... More

I found everything about this Comfort Inn to be pleasing. The staff were helpful and friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. It is an older property, but well maintained and clean. The location is convenient to US 220. Breakfast is typical for free motel breakfasts, but the coffee was good and both the local paper and the WSJ are... More

We stayed here one night in September and got over a dozen bug bites as we slept. I notified the manager, Jerry Robertson, and he promised to have a professional bed bug inspection and to provide a copy of the professional report to me. That was 3 months ago and as yet I have received no report. We also had... More

Parking lots are dark and full of locals yelling in middle of night. Hotel is dated and needs serious work. Stepped of the elevator and the floor boards felt weak and soggy. Rest of floors creaky and old smell in halls and room. Bedding was stained and torn and old. Not enough plug ins for computer or iron. Road traffic... More

This is a well-run hotel. Pleasant staff, clean room (king bed, 2nd floor), good bath and lots of hot water! Nice breakfast and morning local newspaper, too. We were in the area for FERRUM COLLEGE HOMECOMING WEEKEND 2012, and this hotel is closest at 10 miles from the college. By the way, we found a nice home-style restaurant out on... More

The room we were in (double room on the 1st floor) was old and outdated. It smelled of mildew. We didn't request a new room because it was a group of us and we wanted to be close to the others. Breakfast was pretty good, though.
