I must have been one of the last guests before they changed their name from Comfort Inn. There were signs of renovations going on during my stay but was not inconvenienced in any way. The room was standard size but rather than the usual rectangular shape, this room was more square with the outer wall at a slight angle; I think the room was at the point where the building bent slightly inward to follow the irregular shape of the property. There was an armoire instead of a closet, a work desk and chair and a sofa chair.
There was no hint of smoke in the room or on the hallway. The room was clean and in good condition. Internet worked well except it kept going back to the login page every time my computer went to sleep; a bit annoying. Breakfast was included but it was just the standard packaged muffin/sticky bun and cereal; there was a self-serve waffle maker too. I stayed 4 days and skipped breakfast the last 3. My only complaint is the noise coming off the #8 highway early in the morning. The highway exit runs right along the back of the hotel and the trucks freely used engine braking as they took the exit. I highly recommend you request a room not facing the freeway. In the daytime the area looked fine but I'm not sure I would have gone out for an evening walk.
The Fairway Park mall is just a few blocks away so there are plenty of good eateries in the area around it and plenty of shops to spend your money. The universities in Waterloo are a few minutes easy driving along the highway.
In summary, it was a nice stay at a reasonable price for a mid-level hotel. I hope it's only a name change to Best Western and that the rest stays the same....well, maybe a better breakfast would be good...
