A family matter requires me to visit Thomasville every three months or so. Finding a clean room in a professionally-run motel is difficult in this town. Even graded on a curve, the motels in town tend to be dirty, noisy (thanks to construction workers from the nearby paper plant) and lacking in basic conveniences such as reliable wi-fi. (Friendly warning: NEVER stay at the Relax Inn on Highway 43!) I stayed at Comfort Inn in early November--I had not stayed there in several years and had bad memories of the place, but it was the only available room in town. I was surprised that the service and room quality was better than I remembered. Front-desk staff was much friendlier than is customary in Thomasville, where desk staff often glare at you as if you're interrupting their day. When I checked in, tired and stressed, the clerk offered me a soft drink and said fresh-baked cookies would be available soon. Room was clean--yes, the rooms need updating, but cleanliness is the most you can ask for in Thomasville. The continental breakfast was very good, and there was even an attendant on duty to offer help and keep things stocked and fresh. These things may not seem like much, but for a Comfort Inn in a small Alabama town, they are noteworthy. As for the noise, yes, if you have the bad luck to get a noisy neighbor, you may have conversation and television noise seeping through the walls. I guess you could complain to the front desk, but I tend to put in earplugs and try to ignore it. And the lack of an elevator in this motel is inconvenient--who doesn't love to lug luggage up a flight of stairs after driving five hours?? Still, as I said, this is Thomasville, Alabama. You can't expect the level of service you'd get in a good hotel in NYC or London. I don't know how much longer it will last, but for the time being Comfort Inn seems to have turned a new leaf.
No elevator, so be prepared to lug suitcases if you're on the second floor
