“Friendly Service, Comfortable Rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I found everything about this Comfort Inn to be pleasing. The staff were helpful and friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. It is an older property, but well maintained and clean. The location is convenient to US 220. Breakfast is typical for free motel breakfasts, but the coffee was good and both the local paper and the WSJ are available for free in the breakfast area. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again while passing through Roanoke.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is quiet.

We stayed here one night in September and got over a dozen bug bites as we slept. I notified the manager, Jerry Robertson, and he promised to have a professional bed bug inspection and to provide a copy of the professional report to me. That was 3 months ago and as yet I have received no report.

We also had to tape cardboard over the bathroom vent to keep out the cigarette smoke from other rooms. The carpeting, upholstery and blankets were all dirty. But the bites were the worst part.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay at our hotel. I'm sorry your experience wasn't satisfactory and that our response to you wasn't immediate. The room was cleared by an inspection just days after your stay. There have been no subsequent issues with the room.

Parking lots are dark and full of locals yelling in middle of night. Hotel is dated and needs serious work. Stepped of the elevator and the floor boards felt weak and soggy. Rest of floors creaky and old smell in halls and room. Bedding was stained and torn and old. Not enough plug ins for computer or iron. Road traffic has noise and frequent trucks using the diesel breaks. Cost far out weights the problems here at this place.

This is a well-run hotel. Pleasant staff, clean room (king bed, 2nd floor), good bath and lots of hot water! Nice breakfast and morning local newspaper, too.

We were in the area for FERRUM COLLEGE HOMECOMING WEEKEND 2012, and this hotel is closest at 10 miles from the college.

By the way, we found a nice home-style restaurant out on the main road - Ruth's Place, 18027 Virgil H. Goode Hwy, Rocky Mount, VA.

The room we were in (double room on the 1st floor) was old and outdated. It smelled of mildew. We didn't request a new room because it was a group of us and we wanted to be close to the others.
Breakfast was pretty good, though.

Hotel staff were great, everyone there was smiling and friendly.which made my stay even more enjoyable! Room was really large, comfortable beds,clean room,nice flat screen tv. Well kept up Hotel with rates that were reasonable. I did not use the pool or work out areas because I was only there 1 night. This is one of the best comfort inns I have ever stayed at

I have been staying at the comfort inn six of the seven years I have been going to the Ferrum Folklife Festival. I have had no problems while at the hotel. It is very quiet, even ever time I have gone there expect for once it was totally booked. Guests are respectful, staff extremely helpful. They will go the extra mile for you. Ippy's is an excellent place to eat.
