“If You Eat Breakfast, Expect To Get It Elsewhere.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

Stayed at this Comfort Inn during a two-month cross-country trip. As in booking all other hotels, inclusion of breakfast factored into my choices. Breakfast was listed on the website -- "free breakfast with hot waffles" -- as well as the actual eating area being pictured -- with orange juice, danish, muffins, etc. But what we found was only coffee, packets of hot chocolate and oatmeal, frosted flakes and raisin bran, Red Delicious apples and white or wheat bread. I asked the attendant, "Do you have more than toast and cereal?" "No." There wasn't even any jam/jelly to put on your toast! And no waffle maker in sight . . . or anything else that I have been offered at most national brand hotels I've stayed at during this trip.

As to the facility itself, the room was clean. The carpeting and bedding appeared to be "fairly new"; however, the wall art, t.v., wall paper and curtains were something out of the 80s. There was an nice indoor pool, but depth only went up to 5 feet.

This hotel was recently sold and may or may not be a Comfort Inn by the time you get there. For now, it's a standard-issue Comfort Inn, and if you're familiar with the chain, you'll get exactly what you expect. In other words, a basic mid-priced motel with a mediocre free breakfast.

But one thing you won't get right now is free internet. Which was a shame, because I had some business I needed to attend to and couldn't get my work done. I was told by the front desk staff that the previous owner "neglected" the wireless network and that the new owners were going to do something about it. So maybe you'll be luckier than me. Obviously, the hotel shouldn't advertise wireless internet if they don't actually offer a working system.

Got a good rate by calling direct and using AAA, better than any on line deals. Room was clean, internet worked, breakfast was fine, service was excellent. Took awhile for hot water to reach upstairs far room, but it ended up just fine.

My wife and I stayed one night here and had no complaints. The hotel was perfect for an overnight stay except we found that breakfast could have been better.

The lobby is very deceptive, nice, clean, neat. Besides being run down and ceiling tiles in the hallway water stained, our room stunk of stale old cigarette smoke. This was a non-smoking room.

This is certainly not a typical Comfort Inn. It's a little bit plain and much more like a typical ordinairy motel. However, it is clean and the people who run the place are real nice. Of all the hotels and motels in the Eureka and Arcata area, this one was reasonably priced as of Feb. 2010. (for some reason the prices of the hotels and motels in Eureka seem to be quite high for the area)
