This Comfort Inn & Suites recently took over another motel's facility. Consequently, the room decor and mattresses were new. (There was a pile of old mattresses out by the dumpster.)
After staying in so many over-priced hotels in California, this one was a bargain at about $72 before taxes, AAA discount.
The room was slightly larger than an average hotel room, but by no means a suite. The room and bathroom were clean, with a firm, comfortable mattress (non-pillowtop). Unfortunately, the bathroom smelled overwhelmingly of cleaning chemicals, but it certainly was clean. The bathroom sink was outside the bathroom. The room contained a tiny refrigerator and microwave. The Comfort Inn is in the process of ordering refrigerators for every room, so as of this writing, not every room has one. The staff was very friendly.
Our room, 115, just off the lobby had a very loud ice machine directly across the hall which served as "white noise", and a housekeeping closet on one side. We heard no noise from other rooms during our one-night stay, and very little noise in the halls.
As of this writing, there is no business center where you can use a computer, but the motel is in the process of putting one in. The Holiday Inn across the parking lot has a business center with 3 computers.
The exercise room contains a creaky old Joe Weider weight machine that is literally falling apart. There is also a treadmill and cheap stair climber. There are 2 coin-operated washing machines in the exercise room, sauna, and reasonably-sized outdoor pool.
The motel serves complimentary breakfast, which my partner (a veteran of many hotels) reports is slightly better than your average hotel.
Overall, this motel is quite a good deal for California. If you want to visit Sequoia National Park, which I highly recommend, there are many motels closer to the park (some national names), both in Visalia and just outside the park.
