“Good choice for business travel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2005

Quite a bit of redevelopment work has been done near this hotel: there's a convention center and an even larger new hotel (Radisson) to the south and a revitalized Main Street to the north (shops, restaurants, fancy streetlights). It looks like an attempt to mimic Pasadena but the streets are pretty quiet after six. Parking is not a problem since the hotel has reserved spots in the garage next door; be sure to get a dashboard pass from the front desk. The front desk staff were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful. I had a bad door key but the manager fixed it in under a minute.

This is an all-suites hotel with a mini-living room and a second TV. They put the work desk right next to the door, which is not a good idea given any hallway noise (thankfully, there was very little noise). TV channel selection is a bit limited, however, reception quality was unusually good for a hotel (who typically use lots of splitters and amplifiers). The A/C was excellent and you can open the windows to get relief from the customary hot temperatures of newer hotel rooms. The room was quiet during sleeping hours and downtown Visalia has a pretty low-key rush hour.

The hotel uses wired DSL broadband in their rooms. I had no problems connecting and it worked fine with my router (always bring one along for your protection; you never know if the hotel's internet provider is running a firewall or not...some do....some don't). If you forget to bring a Cat 5 cable, they can loan you one. There's no business center but there is a UPS Store (semi-Kinko's) next door. For real copying needs, there's a full FedEX Kinko's, in the big new shopping complex on Mooney Blvd (10 minutes south).

The hotel uses styrofoam cups, plates, and utensils so don't expect fine silverware. The free "expanded continental" breakfast is a bit above average since they have eggs and sausage, but you might find the local I.H.O.P. on Mooney Blvd. more satisfying.

Overall, a good choice for business travel. Not a Hilton or Hyatt but it is clean, comfortable, convenient, and safe.

Nice hotel. I'd give it 4 1/2 stars. All non smoking rooms were together! Elevator worked well, very quiet, immaculate! Received a suite, don't know if all are suites or they upgraded us). Comfortable beds, good pillows. Nice kitchen area (micro, frig and sink). 2 TV's. Only drawback was no door between bed and suite area. Staff was very friendly and helpful finding a restaurant nearby (Brubakers). Excellent breakfast: oatmeal, breakfast burito, scrambled eggs, sausage, toast, bagels, muffins, danish, wafflemaker, fruit, yogurt, many teas, 4 types of juice. Only complaint: it was suana like in the lobby, hallways and breakfast room (76 degrees)

Visalia Comfort Suites was a nice hotel. The staff was friendly and upgraded our rooms, which is a bonus when you travel for business. The hotel is in downtown district, which means you can walk to many of the restaurants and antique shops. It is also next to the conference center. I would recommend this hotel, and I am staying there again next month!
