“Just Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

For $100.00 a night, I expected more. All by itself in sort of a residential area. Nice looking brick building on the outside. Interior shows more age. Freshly painted stairwell which they took no care in painting as there was paint splatters on the floor and base boards. On to the room. Bed was pretty comfortable. Sheer curtain on the window with no heavier shade to pull over it, so light shown in at night. The bathroom light and exhaust fan all on one switch and fan was very noisy. Toilet ran for a long time after flushing and also noisy. No shampoo or soap in the room - had to ask front desk. Breakfast was okay - typical. Did have blueberry and original waffle mix which was nice change. Lady taking care of the breakfast area was super nice and friendly. Basically, thought it was over-priced. Most hotels were booked in the area and all were pretty high-priced.

We stayed one night at the Comfort Inn in Alexandria, Louisiana. This hotel was newly renovated and very clean and comfortable! The front desk clerk was oustanding. I believe her name was Summer. She was so friendly and helpful. It's good to see a smiling face when your in a town your not familar with. She gladly explained where all the good restaurants were at. We will be back and only stay at this hotel when we visit Alexandria just because of her. :-)

Room Tip: Higher floors are more quiet.

My wife, step-daughter and her 2-yr old found ourselves making a mad-dash trip to Alexandria for a family emergency. Six hours and over 300 miles later we arrived quite tired and stressed out. We didn't even know for sure where we would be staying the night - would it be with family or would we need to find a hotel? At the last minute we decided the hotel idea would be easier on our over-stressed family and I set out to find a Comfort Suite/Inn and locked in on this hotel.

Coming unannounced I was unsure if we'd find two rooms close to each other and the front desk had to do some digging to find this but it was a success. Both rooms were comfortable, clean and had plenty of light, wall outlets (I have medical equipment I must run at night and I've been frustrated in other hotels when I found both sockets used by the bedside equipment - this hotel went the extra mile to put surge protectors/power strips on each side of the bed) and no bugs! Since bedbugs are a big problem nationwide this is something worth checking into before staying the night...this one appeared to be clean of bugs in both rooms.

Early morning breakfast was, as in my previous stays at other Comfort Suites, excellent. This isn't your run-of-the-mill pastry's and juice - this is a full breakfast with some of the most awesome waffles you've ever had, scrambled eggs, sausage, various cold-cereals, etc. I knew it'd be a long day ahead of us so I had my share plus probably another person's and was well filled and quite content when we left. We are members of Choice Privileges so late check-out was another bonus we took advantage of and fit our schedule for the day perfectly.

One more bonus: They have wall thermostats that control the window air conditioner. So many hotels I've been to do not have this and the pathetic thermostat on the air conditioner itself is not representative of the temperature of the room - thus you either freeze or roast. The wall-term allowed us to set the temp of the entire room instead of the air right in front of the AC alone. Again, nice feature and nice way to take the traveler's COMFORT into consideration!

Well done (again) Comfort!

We stayed one night at this Comfort Inn in Alexandria. This is a nice, clean and comfortable place to stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. However, depending on what you are planning to do in Alexandria, the location may be a little out or the way We would stay here again if in the area again.

Was staying here for business. Hotel updated and rooms very comfortable. It is close to the airport and right off and convenient to the main drag. The price is right. I would stay here again.

As Hotels go, This Comfort Inn is a Good place to get a good nights sleep. They are doing some work on the place but it was clean and worked for my need for one night. Afternoon and Morning Desk Clerks were very nice and helpful.

We were in town for a funeral so we didn't have too much time to research rates but this hotel seemed to have the least number of complaints of all. We spent four nights and were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. Everything was updated and the continental breakfast was OK. The juice could have been better quality. They said they are upgrading to a hot breakfast this summer. The king mini suites are a king bed, with a love seat, wet bar, refrigerator & microwave. With the rate we received all my family called to see if they could get the same rate and then moved from a hotel down the road that was twice the price.
This is a great hotel for short or long stays and there are restaurants in the area should you need a beverage or meal.

Room Tip: There are very few king mini suites in the hotel.
