“Nice but not nearly as good as reviews say”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

To use words like outstanding or excellent are an exaggeration for sure. This is a nicer Comfort Inn that has recently been remodeled but it is still just a Comfort Inn that is next to a strip club on a road that makes access difficult. Only 1 of the 2 elevators is currently functional, breakfast is very average, housekeeping seems ok but certainly not white glove standard. Rooms are very basic and not large, the flat panel tv has plenty of channels but is not as big as it could have been. Wifi does work well. The lower cost is good but also attracts some iffy clientele. I would stay here for business only and never consider it for leisure travel. My 4 star rating is generous but the place is clean and comfy. Just don't be fooled by what you have read previously and think this hotel is more than it is.

Stayed for a week and have to say very impressed with this hotel , nice design (very on trend with the décor granite in bathrooms , browns greens all very current style) staff is outstanding always willing to offer information and always attentive to guest and their needs , Thanks Carol for all your help) and beds (down pillows and blankets are great in this price range). Beds are very comfortable and hotel is spotless will be staying here again in future visits to area. The only two things that are drawbacks are things that the hotel can not control. first it is located near the end of the runway of St Pete airport and you will hear jets departing and Elmerton Rd (8 lanes) is tore up totally and under construction till 2016 so getting to the hotel can be very trying at times .

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the West Left side as big rig truck park right in the back of you and depart very.ver...

Thank you for your honest appraisal of our hotel and all of the travel tid bits that you gave! The one thing that I will say is that we do not have semis that park here every day and as of recently the semis that we do have, have been parking else where on property! I am sorry if you got awoken early by a semi that had been parked near the building!

Booked this room because we were only going to be in town for one night and needed somewhere close to our venue. It was clean, staff was friendly, breakfast was continental which included some hot items (I love the waffle maker!) and it was close to a lot of conveniences. I would recommend this place. Great value!!

I stayed at this hotel for 8 weeks while taking a training class for work. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is a typical breakfast but very good and a lot of variety...cereal, yogurt, eggs and sausage, biscuits and gravy, waffles, oatmeal, toast, bagels, danish, english muffins. The fruit bowls contained apples, bananas and oranges but they were empty on many occasions. What I can't say enough about is the staff at the front desk...Tiffany, Tammy, Paula, Carol, Leslie and so many others whose names I can't remember. Each and every one of them went out of their way to make sure I had everything I needed, gave me directions to nearby drugstores, grocery stores and even an auto body shop so I could get my tires filled with air. They even made sure the breakfast area was opened early for me when I had to be at my training class early.

All in all I would recommend this hotel for its location, cleanliness and friendly staff. You won't be disappointed. Thanks to everyone for making my home away from home a little more bearable.

I travel quite a bit for work so practically live in hotels. This comfort inn was one of the cleanest I've ever been to. The staff was accommodating and the breakfast was above average. The wifi was excellent as well which is very rare. All around good value. Definitely will stay if I return.

Great price, great staff, great COMFORT!! There was what seemed like a "honeymoon" couple next door that was enjoying their stay also! They were an older couple to come to find out!! That was awesome!
