“3 Star DUMP”
Reviewed July 1, 2007

This hotel advertises itself as a 3 star hotel. Actually, it's a working class 1 star dive. The place is in terrible shape. The windows are absolutely FILTHY. Parts of the Hotel are being fixed, but it's not going to be enough unless they gut the place and start over. It's shabby at best. The hotel gets hot and no air flow even with the windows open. My kids bathroom window which was caked in black crud would not open and their room was terribly hot. It does not have any class and certainly not 3 stars. The website mentions panoramic views of the ocean...yes...from SELECT rooms. If you are lucky like us, you will get the backend view of a delapidated old building and the hotel's small parking lot. The website should be honest and tell people that the hotel is being worked on and the condition that it is in currently is not a 3 star hotel. The elevator takes you to the floor of your room, but some rooms still require you to walk down several steps with luggage to get to them. Great Design!! People stand in the doorway at the entrance and smoke and this is after the smoking ban. Does the management say anything...NO! I booked this hotel when I was searching for special offers. Never do that again. COMFORT INN should be ashamed of themselves for even associating themselves with this beat up crummy establishment. I had booked 3 nights here, but cancelled and stayed on one because I had no choice. One can't even sit in the lobby without the LOUD MOUTH locals carrying on. All in all...do not stay at this hotel until it has undergone a SERIOUS overhaul...wrecker ball...maybe..just don't do it!!

Stayed here is January 07 via a special offer on their website, sunday nights are their quiet nights so they do a half price deal without breakfast so we booked a suite for £60.

The room was gorgeous!!!
we stayed in the san clu suite which had a view of the parade and the balcony gave a view of the sea and the beautiful sunset. the furniture in the room was overshadowed by the beautiful 4poster bed complete with chiffon drapes, my husband and i felt like we were on honeymoon. We ordered breakfast in our room and sat on the balcony. The room was really large and we had a sofa(bed) in the room so we could watch the tv in comfort. The bathroom looked like it had been recently refurbished and had a walk in shower but no bath, which didn't worry us as we both prefer showers.

The staff were really helpfull and the food was good, we ate in the bar as the restaurant looked empty. The food alone is worth a visit.

We had stayed before in a rear facing room, these rooms are basic but clean, it is worth the extra cost to stay in a suite and to get the cheaper room rate we would reccommend booking online.

Arrived but got the impression we were a nuisance. Up and down stairs to a tiny room with filthy windows and only two coat hangers in wardrobe. Old fashioned furniture reminiscent of Butlins hotels in Margate which they at least pulled down.
Following day the room was not cleaned and we were told that it was because we had left a Do not disturb notice on the door. There was not one in the room!. They then said they could not gain access to the room although we were out all day. Complained at 4.30 p.m. no one appeared until after 6 p.m. Too late.
The bar which is open to outsiders seemed to attract its fair share of dubious characters and if you could handle the amount of swearing by the regulars dominating the bar you may enjoy it.
The amount which is quoted on the site web site is ridiculous for this standard of hotel but it seems that there are deals at half these prices on a web search.
The one redeeming feature that our two nights cost us nothing as we had collected enough stamps from stays at Choice Hotels in the Czech Republic for two nights free accommodation
