“Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The desk clerk was friendly and helpful. He appreciated that I was an Emerald member. The room was quiet and comfortable. The value was excellent. I was disappointed they didn't offer sausage or bacon for breakfast.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

It was a pretty basic Comfort Inn. It was really hard to get to due to the construction on the highway and the construction on 3rd Avenue. It was also rush hour and we had 4 lanes to get across to make the turn onto 3rd Ave which we couldn't make due to traffic. So we had to find another way to get to the hotel which took what seemed like forever. Part of the problem was the one way streets, too. :-( I wasn't too happy when I got to the front desk, and the desk clerk didn't even say Hi or how ya doing... No "thanks for staying with us, we know the construction was not easy to get through". There are also no restaurants within easy walking distance either. Breakfast was basic as we are finding Comfort Inns to be. I would not stay here again until the construction is done. An email from the hotel about the construction and alternate routes would have been nice.

I was booked at top rate prices right under the reception room where a party was also booked. I was unable to rest or even watch television after a long day. Staff response was to let me know I could move my entire family to another room. If there was a better room, why wasn't I booked in it? Why didn't the staff offer to move me? Submitting a customer service survey elicited no response. I'll sleep on the street more comfortably than I'll ever sleep at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Stay anywhere else

Kind of hard to get in to as there was construction along the street entrance. Ample parking, though and the staff was nice. We did, however, first get a room that was occupied. Oops! Upon getting to our room, it seemed like the hotel may have been originally one that you accessed your room from the outside. The halls were odd, like they enclosed them so it would seem more hotel-like rather than motel-like. Beds were good and we like all the pillows. Didn't get a chance to use the pool but it was open 24 hours. Didn't see the free evening cookies, but the breakfast was fine. They opened up seating just off the breakfast area for overflow. Seemed like that area used to be a restaurant. Our usual Spokane hotel of choice was full so we ended up here. Cost was more at this Comfort Inn, but the hotel was not as good. :( It was just altogether odd.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The employees were all very kind. We both slept well and enjoyed our breakfast. Make sure you get to breakfast early though because every morning we barely were able to find seats. They could use some remodeling in the hotel rooms though. We had some peeling/discolored wall paper and some stains on our carpet.

Nice clean rooms. Warm welcome by Jay & Casse. Internet access is great and strong in all rooms without delay in logging in and stays logged in without interuptions. Lots of parking, Variety of breakfast items, something for everyone. Warm delicious cookies served each evening in the lobby area.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. If you want a view of the city higher level floors are better for view.

We stayed for one night and we enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and beds were very comfortable. The 24 hour pool is certainly a bonus. I was able to enjoy a soak in the jacuzzi before bedtime without kids screaming in the pool. I have read the reviews from others who have 5 star expectations especially regarding the FREE breakfast!!! I don't know what they had paid, but we got a good deal booking online and we sure got our money's worth. Not the best location, but safe. We took the dog for walks a few time throughout the day and no concerns. The area is somewhat industrial looking.
