I've never stayed in a Comfort Inn. However, I am here and I am totally impressed with it. I thought it was going to be a cheap looking place but all I have to say is that it exceeded my expectations.
When you check-in, the staff is nice and chatty. In fact, after talking to them for a while about a place to have a late dinner, they gave me a coupon for a free beer at "Rock Bottom", a great place on the 16th ave. shopping street. So I headed out there.
The lobby is nice. They offer a complimentary full breakfast in the morning. Once you get to your floor, the hallways are a little bare... and the elevator is super old but works properly. Just get a kick of the old 'push-in' floor buttons that the old day elevators had...
The rooms are basic. TV channel selection is good and the rooms have coffee maker, closet, desk, good lighting and free WIFI!!! Yeah! In fact, I am sitting in the bed,watching the morning news and having my coffee while typing this review... as for the bed, is ok. Not as "heavenly" but it is ok. The room is clean; however, the bathroom is very small... no counter space and even the handle to flush the toilet is next to the sink, but clean and simple.
The Final Verdict:
Lobby/Reception Area: 4.5 / 5.0
Hotel Amenities/Facilities: 4.5 / 5.0
Staff friendliness/responsiveness: 5.0 / 5.0
Room Decor/Ambiance: 4.0 / 5.0
Room cleanliness: 5.0 / 5.0
Room Amenities: 5.0 / 5.0
Bed Comfort: 4.0 / 5.0
Hotel Bar: (not used)
Hotel Restaurant: (not used)
Check-in/out Speed: 4.5 / 5.0
Total Score: 36.5 / 40 ( 91 out of 100% or A- Grade)
Final Comment: A 'budget' hotel that exceeded all of my expectations... specially when all the big name hotels charge you for everything; you get a cute little place, in the same location as most of the big ones, and the amenities are much better such as free wifi and free full breakfast.
