We would never stay here again. I guess you get what you pay for!!! The front desk was so busy with only 1 person helping. Hiring more help would be an excellent thought. The shuttle for the different attractions was very inconvenient related to the times leaving the motel were 2-3 hours after the events opened up. Thus we paid... More

Checked in last week for four nights for a wedding. Booked a suite - what a joke. You could barely turn around in the rooms. Bathroom was so tiny. The carpet on the hallway on the second floor was filthy. We got very little sleep due to the noise from people above us. Not so sure they were that noisy... More

Our family, which on this trip consisted of myself my husband our daughter and two grandsons, booked a room here because it accepted that many people at one time and from the website looked spacious. The room was outdated, very tight in space,and the bathroom had enough room to shut the door and barely turnaround in. Be prepared for a... More

Let's start with the good. Great location, near Seaworld, beaches, zoo and the I8 and I5 freeways. Friendly staff and a pool area with lounge chairs. Absolute family destination so if you do not care for rugrats this is no place for you in the summer. The rooms were comfortable and clean with a refrigerator and a good size gym.... More

This hotel actually looks better in person than in the photos on the website - that almost never happens. We stayed with our two sons in a double/double suite, which was spacious, clean and fresh - seemed like it was recently remodeled. The free breakfast buffet is quite large and offers a great variety of items, and the pool is... More

My wife Mary (59 yrs old) and I (71)visited this hotel July 18 thru the 20th. After checking in @ 11 p.m. (were on the I-5 freeway for 4 hours...was a "parking lot" & we were "done in"), I found no clerk at the lobby desk; waited a few minutes along with another couple, eventually phoning the site with no...

We have stayed at other Comfort Inns and Suites and were expecting a much nicer and cleaner hotel. The check-in process when we got back from Sea World at 9:30 pm was slow because there was only one person working behind the desk. When we went to park the car, there was no available spaces on the property, and had... More

We had a 6 night stay. The bad: The hotel is in need of an update. The hallway carpets are stained and buckling so you trip on it. Our room was so smelly and dusty that or sinuses were out of control requiring medication every day. Some lucky folks got clean rooms, we didn't. Room was poorly lit. Breakfast room... More

The only good part: the staff was friendly and helpful. The rest: There is far too little parking (and the spaces are too small for all the family sized cars) for a hotel of this size. We had to park on the street. The pool is also not adequate for the size of the hotel and didn't look that nice... More

I stayed at the Comfort Inn and Suites for five nights while my kids attended a local camp. The children loved the stay, because of this, I would return, but for a shorter stay. In fact, I think most of the guests stay a shorter amount of time because my room card kept de-magnetizing and I had to go to... More
