“Great hotel, fantastic location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2009

This hotel is an amazing location! There are virtually all types of restaurants within walking distance, PLUS a shopping mall just a block away. Walmart, Target, speciality stores, you name it, its probably close by! There's an Applebees, Olive Garden, Panera Bread, Chinese, Chipotle, red lobster and more right within reach! The hotel is clean and nice, with a nice breakfast too!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2008

It's a smaller property, just two floors. The pool and the breakfast area are small, as is lobby, although each area is presentable and clean. Stairways at each end of the motel appeared that they had not been vacuumed in quite some time. We arrived right at check-in, with only two other cars in the parking lot, so it's not likely that the crumbs, rocks, and dirt littering the steps were tracked in from newly arriving guests. I didn't see any way upstairs to our room from the lobby.

Entering our room, I was pleased to not be overcome with any scent other than that of what was likely 409 or glass cleaner. In the morning, checking to make sure that we didn't leave any belongings behind, I noticed that there was much debris underneath the dust cover around the bottom of the bed. Not just tiny crumbs, but a bobby pin, pieces of crackers, scraps of paper. But for the price I paid for the room--on a Saturday--it made it easy to overlook these downfalls. And where cleanliness really matters, such as the sheets, the bathroom floor, the toilet, and the bathtub--this property receives high marks. No hairs from previous guests anywhere in the tub or sink.

The waffle-enhanced continental breakfast went smoothly, and the attendant kept up on keeping the area clean throughout the time it took for us to finish breakfast. She periodically wiped up waffle batter spills, checked the levels of each juice selection, and restocked the plastic-ware, napkins, and condiments.

I would stay at this motel again, although the owners could improve the appearance by taking a competent vacuum through the stairwells and along the edges of the furniture in the room.

  • Liked — Even though the hotel appeared to be booked solid, I couldn't hear anyone in neighboring rooms.
  • Disliked — Some areas of the hotel are neglected by the cleaning staff.

The service at Comfort Inn was excellent. The night staff was very accommodating and very friendly. I would stay at this hotel again. The rooms were clean and comfortable.

I stayed at this hotel for a week during March for work. The hallways and stairs looked like they had not been vacuumed in some time. My room was on the same floor as the smoking rooms and the smoke wafted down the hallway to all of the non-smoking rooms. The carpet in the room also looked like it had not been cleaned in some time. The breakfast was small and contained one waffle maker and stale pastries and breads. The one bright side was the beds were comfortable, however, I will not stay there again.

  • Liked — comfortable beds
  • Disliked — dirtiness of rooms and carpeting

We checked in in april of 2002. It was mankato east prom. Prom is supposed to be this special, flawless, magical night. Everything was.. until the Comfort Inn came into the picture. We checked-in earlier that day.. quickly put our bags and things in the room .. got ready and left. After the grand-march.. before the dance.. we stopped into the room. We pulled down the upper part of the bed sheets to find black hairs ALL OVER OUR PILLOWS. Very disgusted we went down to the front desk to complain to only be given some new pillow cases to change ourselves and that she had a room ticket stating that the room had been cleaned (basically calling us liars). Upset..we went back to our room, changed the pillow cases and proceeded to head to the after-prom dance. When we came back after the dance.. to our dismay.. we found that the entire bed sheet and fitted sheet was covered in black hairs. We called down to front desk.. it was the same lady.. she sounded veryupset and reluctant to come up and change the sheets. it took her almost a half an hour to get to our room and it was already getting very late and we were wanting to head to bed. When we thanked her for coming to do that and she gave us an annoyed look and just walked out. I then tried to contact the major comfort inn website to voice my complaint and never heard back from them.. and the sad part is they call themselves a 3-star hotel. i have found better 1-star hotels out there. TRUST ME
