“Worst senario comes true”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2005

We have a friend that works for choice hotels so we would be paying 40 bucks a night at most facilites ( friends and family rate). We had spent days reading reviews - After reading the reviews though - we felt the only possibliity for us was maingate east - which didn't qualify for the $40 discount - instead it would be gov't rate ( I'm a Federal employee) at $75.00 per night - still a great rate compared to Disney where we were headed. We've stayed on-site Disney 12 times over 15 years, at all three catergories and the campground. We were always very impressed and never had a bad experience, though we were looking to go inexpensive this time for a short getaway. Showed up at Comfort suites with a guaranteed reserveration for a non-smoking king suite - (reconfirmed the day before)
They gave us our room - go up to find two queens and a funky smell ( cigarettes, perfume, and mold).
Back down to request the king - The clerk says I'll give you an upgrade to a king - but won't charge us the difference ( big of them since it's what I had reserved and paid for already.)
Back up stairs ( hauling the luggage the whole time of course) to find our King room is strewn with garbage and dirty towels - the maids tip is still on the counter, obviously not made up and it's 9:30 at night.
Back down again - told them we were leaving and headed to Disney - Port Orleans French Quarter - immaculate room and great customer service -
We'll never stray again.

Just returned from 7 days at the Comfort Suites. Overall very comfortable, safe, clean accommodations. One night upon returning from the parks at about 10:30, a gal was on her hands and knees with a toothbrush scrubbing the baseboard by the elevator! Rooms were adequate with a microwave and refrigerator.

Free breakfast was nice – definitely not for a low-carb diet! Waffles were delicious. Everything was kept well stocked and clean. We had the best luck when we arrived at around 8:00 AM, any later we had to wait for a table but no big deal. Variety was impressive for continental with several drink choices, fruit, donuts, English muffins, toast, hard boiled eggs, cereal, yogurt, applesauce, instant oatmeal and on the weekends they offered biscuits/gravy. Note: When both toasters were running, we had trouble most mornings with shorting something out and found the reset button on the power cord down behind the toasters.

Laundry facility was nice (1 washer/drier on each floor), which was convenient.

The elevators can be a little hectic and seem a little slow during busy times – mid-morning and after the parks close, but with just being on the 2nd floor we could use the stairs when it seemed to take a long time.

The pool was nice but seemed cold to me. The children’s pool/fountain was nice especially with it being fenced in but unbearably cold at the time we were there. The hot tub was very nice. There is a small bar, which serves drinks and pizza, appetizers and such. The 2-for-1 drink coupons in the room were a nice touch.

I printed directions off to get from the airport to Comfort Suites. We had a little trouble finding it. My directions indicated to turn before Old Town but you have to pass through Old Town to get there, which can be crowded if you arrive Saturday evening like we did – they have an antique car show every Saturday night. It’s much easier if you go past Old Town and turn between Red Lobster and Pizza Hut and go straight back. There is a sign right there too but it’s easy to miss.

As far as restaurants in the area – good luck! We tried to be adventurous at first and tried new places but weren’t successful so we stuck with the common chains in the Midwest. Hwy. 192 has about everything – if you can’t find what you’re looking for, just keep driving, you’ll find it!!

This is an excellent off-Disney resort. I loved the tiki bar at the pool and enjoyed a couple of free drinks with the buy one, get one free coupons at the front desk. The pizza from the tiki bar was delivered to our room - hot and delicious in 20 minutes.

The hot tub and pool were clean and well maintained. The room was very large and also clean.

The breakfast buffet was outstanding. A word of caution to meat lovers and carbohydrate dieters - no meat at the breakfast buffet. They had chocolate and regular waffles (whipped cream for topping), fruit, cereal, yogurt, applesauce, oatmeal, english muffins, donuts, tea, coffee and juices.

The elevators are extremely slow which is my only complaint. There are many many stores and restaurants nearby. We ended up at Fridays for a dinner one night.

We stayed at this hotel on the first week in April for one night. The hotel was about what we expected. It was clean, had a fairly nice pool, and had an adaquate breakfast. We got a rate of $79.00 for four family members which was a fair price.

We did have trouble getting the managment to send up extra pillows but to be fair, the hotel was sold out and the front desk staff was extremely busy.

All in all we'd stay there again, but I would not give this hotel 5 stars.

We stayed three nights in April and found the hotel to be very nice. Our room was extra clean, spacious and very quiet. We had no problems with the elevators. The breakfast was good, but it was pretty much the same thing put out every day. We rented a car so getting to and from the Disney parks was easy and quick; having the car made it more relaxing as the hotel shuttles only run at certain times. The location next to Old Town is also great as you can walk there. We would stay here again and would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for 12 days and loved it. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Bed linen was regularly changed, and the spacious bathroom had a good stock of clean towels. The swimming pool and whirlpool was great after a day at the Parks. The location of the hotel is also perfect, near the Parks, but also in the Old Town which offers extreme sports, great! We found this hotel to be great value for money. The breakfast was fantastic - fresh waffles were served every morning, along with eggs etc. There was something for everyone in the breakfast buffet - well done Comfort Suites. We would definitely consider returning to this hotel again, it has won many awards and I can see why. There are shuttle buses which run to the Disney Parks, and only one shuttle bus to Universal and Seaworld at 9am returning at 9pm. There is no shuttle to wet'n'wild. We had to hire a car because of the limited shuttle service. Otherwise, it is a great place to stay and the staff were very friendly!!!!

We have just returned from a week at this hotel. On the whole we really liked it. The rooms were large and clean, (heated) pool was nicely landscaped. A nice buffet breakfast with delicious waffles. Also the location was great. Set off from the highway but very close. You could also walk to Old Town which is an amusement area. There are a number of restaurants and shopping areas handy and Disney Parks a 15 minute drive. The elevators and toasters are slow but this is a minor complaint. This is a nice new hotel. Make sure you do not get a room near the elevators though as you can hear people talking while waiting for them. I only noticed it the first night as we went to bed very early. There is generally not much activity in the halls after 11p.m. -in any event I had my trusty earplugs. I would definitey stay here again.
