We stayed here for the June 2008 Mt. Mitchell ride and highly recommend it! The staff was very friendly and provided great service! The indoor pool and hot tub was WONDERFUL!!! My daughter has been in and out of it continuously. The rooms are nice, spacious, and clean. They have popcorn in the lobby and my usual belgian waffles everytime I stay at Comfort Inn/choice hotels. I highly recommend this hotel!!!!

We have been coming to Marion NC for the Gold Festival every year since it began. Only one year did we stay somewhere else and we will NEVER do that again. The staff at this hotel were very friendly, the rooms clean (thank God they don't allow dogs) and the pool was very conforting after a long day of bending over to gold pan.... We will be staying there again this April.

Stayed April 2006

My husband and I brought a piece of property in Marion NC, after working on the property all day, also after driving almost six hours, went to stay at the Comfort Inn. We have stayed there before. We took our dog with us. Online it says it will take pets no weight limit. Told them we had our dog and was turned away. They need to change thier website. We had to drive six hours home that night. will never stay there again.

We just returned from a one night stay at the Comfort Inn in Marion NC. It was a very pleasureable experience. We had a king size suite with a two person whirlpool. The room was very clean and well kept. It had a microwave and minifridge and the furniture was in good taste. The bed was quite comfortable and the sofa sleeper was shared by our two daughters ages 13 and 15 with no complaints. After a good nights sleep we
went to the continental breakfast which offered not only the usual offerings of coffee,jucie,pastries, cereal, etc. but also had microwavable sausage biscuits, microwavable egg omlets (which I didn't care for because I don't like cheese in my eggs
but my husband was fine with it) and hard boiled eggs. The coffee was pretty good for hotel coffee. Coffee, hot chocolate,and cookies are available in the lobby throughout the day and evening and there are often guests congregating in the lobby drinking coffee and watching tv. They also have an old time popcorn machine in the lobby with cardboard boxes (like at the movies ) that you can have some popcorn or take some back to the room to enjoy while watching tv in the evenings. Anyway all in all we had a wonderful stay and if I'm ever in the area I'd love to stay there again. Oh yeah almost forgot they have a nice indoor pool and hot tub and it was always empty everytime we went even though the hotel was filled to capacity!!
