I'm a platinum member in the Choice Rewards frequent stay program, so I know a thing or two about what to expect at their properties. A lot of their brands sound a like, but "Comfort Suites" are supposed to be a step above, say, a regular "Comfort Inn." This property is not and, frankly, needs new management and a makeover.
First, the property just isn't being maintained well. The hallway carpets aren't vacuumed enough, there are stains on bedspreads and wallpaper, and the general feel of the hotel is one in decline. Heck, even your first impressions of the hotel are negative as there are folks smoking and drinking beer outside the front door (I guess this is in response to the hotel being "smoke free!"). Breakfast was poor; typical low quality motel bread products along with bad coffee (has anyone on staff tasted it recently?), cold egg frisbees and "gravy."
I've previously stayed in the "Sleep Inn" in Dover (also a Choice Hotel properrty) and I liked it a little better, even though the Sleep Inn brand is supposed to be cheaper.
Bottomline, you can survive a night here but, unless it's a bargain, I'd try another motel on Route 13.
