“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

First the good things: The bathroom was a good size and the room was clean. The bad things: There were many stains on the carpet and it needed to be changed out years ago. The mattress was saggy, it also should have been changed out years ago. The room was badly out of date. The hotel has no elevator. The continental breakfast was a joke. There was almost nothing to eat. I have never seen anything like it. I have never stayed at a Comfort Inn this bad. if you stay in Yarmouth book a higher rated hotel/B&S on the TA list.

Room Tip: Book another hotel.

This is a very small hotel. It has two floors but no elevator. The complimentary breakfast that is offered is a small offering on one table. We were told that we had access to a patio area from the inside of our room. This area was nothing more than a small sidewalk behind the building.

Room Tip: Do not accept a second floor room unless you wish to carry your luggage up the stairs. There is no...

Stayed here 2 nights while my husband was participating in the Yarmouth shark scramble. I commend the management and house keeping staff as the room was meticulously clean. Convenient to all shopping and dining. Although the hotel is situated at the edge of a shopping center and on a main road, it's extremely quiet at bedtime. I'll stay here again during the 2013 shark scramble. Thanks Comfort Inn, I relaxed and slept great!!

Situated outside the main town, in a shopping area it was easy to find. We had a large 2nd floor room (no lift) with a window that lets in the afternoon sunshine. Our room was pretty much as the photos already on the site show, which I expect would be the same for most of the rooms. I noticed the ground floor rooms had patio doors out onto the carpark. Continental breakfast included in our rate was served in the lobby, the usual cereal, juice, coffee, toast etc., not too many tables, but with the advantage of a server on hand for assistance - it was fine and convenient. Would stay here again.

It was our first time to Yarmouth Nova Scotia and our first time staying at the Comfort Inn. Me and my husband went for a business trip and it was very close to a great shopping area. There is a everything you basically need within minutes of the hotel. The Hotel itself was very basic but good for the money. The rooms are clean, bed very soft and fluffy pillows.We requested a Non smoking room, but you could still smell the sent of old ciggerette smoke, nothing a little febreeze wouldn't fix! But other than that we can't say anything else negative. Our room had a mini fridge and microwave so it was very convenient for us to bring our own food. Everything was great! The front staff was very nice and professional. Easy check in and check out. Breakfast was fresh with a nice selection. It's nice that this hotel offers rewards for returning guests as many don't. My husband and my family will defaintly be back.

Room Tip: The drive up location worked best for us.

The hotel is located in the main shopping area of Yarmouth very convenient to the highway from Digby. It is not within walking distance of the downtown or the harbour. It is 2 storeys with no elevator. Although our room over looks the main road and a fairly busy side street, the room itself is very quiet. The furnishings and decor attractive. Our only complaint was the poor lighting for reading in bed but then not everyone reads in bed.

I did note in the hotel information in the room "rules" for sports teams. So, perhaps if there are sports teams staying in the hotel, it may not be as quiet.

Internet is complimentary. There is no restaurant but the hotel does serve a continental breakfast which was included in our room rate. We choose to go elsewhere because we wanted a cooked breakfast. The hotel staff were able to tell us which local restaurants were open for breakfast and directions as to how to find them.

My son and I stayed at the Comfort Inn Yarmouth for one night during a basketball tournament. Very comfortable beds with many plush soft pillows. room very clean. Bathroom was great and shower/tub literally sparkled. Breakfast was fine - waffles, bagels, cereal, etc. Every store and restaurant you could want was within walking distance, many across the street. At $79, this was quite a bargain. I only wish we had stayed longer.
