I went to Marshall for a funeral. I looked at the hotels recommended by the funeral home, Holiday Inn and Hampton Inn, and I was surprised by their prices, $150-$200 for a room with two beds! I didn't even pay that much for a room when I went to a four star hotel in Chicago. I was reluctant to choose Comfort Inn, because I was in a rather sensitive place. However, I'm glad I did. It was less than half of the other hotels, and I couldn't imagine the other hotels were any nicer.
I'm going to start with the cons, because there were so few. The hotel doesn't have an elevator, and at the top of the stairs, the door is awkward to open, to the point where if you're carrying a lot of things and have people behind you, you could easily fall backwards. Next the bathroom in our particular room was rather small.
And that's it.
The room we stayed in had a refrigerator, a microwave, a baby coffee maker, an iron and ironing board, two double beds, a bedside table, a dresser with an HDTV on it, a desk with computer chair, and a sitting chair. There was enough room for four people to comfortably exist.
In the morning, they had a superb breakfast displayed for everyone. It had cereal, bagels, danishes, muffins, hot eggs, sausage, hashbrowns, a waffle maker, milk, juice, yogurt and coffee.
I was beyond pleased with this hotel and it exceeded my expectations. The staff were pleasant and the wake call was prompt.
The location is decent. There's a dollar tree, Kmart and Radio Shack nearby, there are also a variety of fast food restaurants and an Applebee's. It's located right behind a Shell Gas Station that has a nice array of snacks.
For what I was going through, I could have easily had a horrible experience due to any small inconvenience.
