“Terrible room. Do not stay here.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2007

We stayed at this Comfort Inn on the way to Florida for vacation. The rooms were booked online at choicehotels.com. The rooms were dirty. The carpet was wet and dirty. The room had a "funny" smell and I don't mean ha ha funny either. There was mold growing in the coffee pot. Our room was shorted towels. There was a large spider living in the bathroom. The bath mat (towel) was already wet upon arrival. Also, the GFCI switch in the bathroom kept getting triggered everytime we turned on the bathroom light. All items were reported to hotel staff with little or no concern on their part. I have stayed at Comfort Inns before and never seen anything like this.

We stayed at this hotel and the biggest thing that I didn't like is that the pool needed cleaning. Also the room kind of smelled funny. The breakfast was large and good though.
