“Nice hotel, fair price, close to UC Davis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We decided to try the Comfort Suites this time, having stayed at the La Quinta across the street a few months back. We were very satisfied with the hotel, the size of the room, the quality of the wifi, the pool, the helpfulness of the staff, and the price (after our discount).
The large room (two queen beds) included a couch and desk. Lots of room for my wife & I and our son. The wifi was fast and efficient (and a joy compared to the issues at La Quinta). The breakfast room was a good size and they had a good variety of breakfast items - though the eggs were a bit runny and the sausage was just okay. (Not "deluxe" but at "free," I can't complain too much.)
What will I do when we come back in a few months? If I can keep the price delta between La Quinta and Comfort Suites at about $20 a night, I will come here. The room size and the slightly better breakfast is worth that. But if it's much more than that, I might stay at La Quinta to save a bit.
The Comfort Suites does have a nice exercise room that I didn't use but could have. The pool was clean and warm. (Of course, it's been 90 to 100 degrees for more days this summer.)
The location (like the La Quinta) is very close to town - maybe 5 min. It's right next to the Hwy 80 entrance, has a Carls Jr and IHOP right next door (Del Taco and Applebees across the street). So this location (and La Quinta) are great spots if you come to Davis.
Hope this helps. I'll be happy to answer any questions.

Room Tip: I like the rooms on floors other than the 1st floor. No other recommendations.

Good location to stay if you're visiting UC Davis. It's on the other side of the freeway, from the university campus and downtown, but still just a short, convenient drive away. Clean rooms. Courteous staff. Pricing very fair. In lieu of vending machines, they have a vending area in the lobby where you can get snacks, or those toiletry items often forgotten at home.

We are a family of five just back from having spent four nights at this property. We have no complaints about our stay. Though it is considered a two-star hotel, the beds, linens, and pillows were very comfortable. The room (#103) was spotless. The employees were pleasant as was the daily Continental breakfast that was included in the price. The breakfast included sausage and the fluffiest scrambled eggs I've ever had. There was coffee, three different juices, muffins, danishes, yogurts, cereals, and fresh fruit to choose from. Just across the parking lot was Applebee's and several other fast food restaurants. There was ample parking and the property wasn't overcrowded and quite quiet. We were so comfortable here that we gave up our plans to stay in San Francisco for two nights and instead just drove there daily to enjoy that city. We would definitely stay here again and hope everyone else experiences as pleasant a stay.

Room Tip: Don't expect a 5 star resort, just a very clean, comfortable room/stay. Not noisy despite the pr...

Clean, minimal rooms, are what is offered here;variety of lights in the room to suit your mood, whether one is reading or the other is sleeping. If you have someone in the group who smokes, bad news for them as they offer no smoking rooms in the hotel so you have to take the lift a couple floors down which wasn't really helpful. The staff were pretty aged and not so warm to give us any sort of welcoming even though we were a family and not some crazy teenagers that have had one too many drinks.

Anyway moving on to the food, let me just say, for a hotel to only maintain 1 small kettle in the cafeteria is a joke. The fridge was small, the worlds slowest, most rubbish coffeemaker and probably what looked like a microwave from the 60's. They need major renovation to that kitchenette. No wonder its hidden for a reason! The cups were plastic and it was just lacking in any hospitality service. Its probably best to order a takeaway and enjoy it, knowing it will be prepared faster than what is downstairs.

Only stayed for a day to visit cousins that was just a 5 min walk from the campus which was great. Location had some sort of advantage to it as it wasn't too far from shops and restaurants. So all in all, rooms were cosy to sleep in, kitchen needed a lot of work and the location was by far the most attractive part about it.

Room Tip: If you or your other travellers are smokers, get the ground floor rooms as they don't offer smok...

It looks like your generic, mid-priced, predictably hygienic chain hotel. What makes this comfort inn stand out is the staff. They are young, smart, friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice and clean, Tasteful but not fancy. There is an outdoor pool and hot tub and fitness room. Recycling bins!!! Ample parking. Breakfast is a cut above most. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent hotel, just outside of the downtown area of Davis and just off the campus. The room was large and very quiet and well appointed. The problem is the kitchenette: it consists of a little fridge, a sink, a microwave, and the world's worst coffeemaker. As another commenter noted, all cups are plastic or paper. Even downstairs (and thank god for the 24-hour coffee in the lobby) the cups were styrofoam. How are you supposed to be able to use the microwave with plastic, paper, or styrofoam? You can't do a thing with it! You can't even heat some water for tea. The truly dismal coffeemaker: a greyish brown tasteless stream of lukewarm water issued into my paper cup. After adding the Creamer Powder and looking at the grey mess that resulted, I dressed myself fully for the trip downstairs. As I said, thank god for the coffee in the lobby. The kitchenette is a complete waste of time. Not even a kettle.
Also, my bathroom toilet was not particularly clean. These small issues not a big deal, for otherwise the hotel is great, but they do mean the hotel is much less comfortable than it could be.

A well appointed and friendly hotel. Above average breakfast and 24 hour coffee pot in the lobby. The only issues were a lamp that didn't work properly and malfunctioning TV that made channel selection random. Overall a pleasant stay.
