My sister and I visited our aunt in Harlan recently. We stayed at the Comfort Inn (formerly the Holiday Inn Express).
Room: Completely renovated. Tastefully decorated, clean. Great little refrigerator with separate freezer (mini-sized--wish I could have taken it with me!). The bathroom was also brand new, clean and nicely decorated. Our room was 230 (on the end facing the Catholic Church). It was quiet and not far from the elevator--in fact, none of the rooms are that far from the elevator).
Hotel in general: The lobby is small and functional, with free chocolate chip & oatmeal raisin cookies across from the elevator. The breakfast buffet is very good--decent variety, well prepared and clean. Lots of nice little café tables and a large flat-screen TV to keep you informed. Nice heated pool, but no exercise room.
Environs: Not much going on in Harlan these days. Like many coal-mining towns, it is past its prime. Lots of retirees and not many food choices. What they do have is found on the main road through town. Did you know there are elk in the mountains? Would love to see some!
