We stayed at another nearby motel in Marion a week or so earlier in March and were pleased to write a good review of that place. This week (April 5) I had to make another solo trip from Alabama to Chicago and decided to try the Comfort Inn, primarily because of the TripAdvisor reviews. I must say I too was impressed by all the things others have mentioned. The folks are friendly, the place is spotless. The rooms are well-equipped, both soft and firm pillows as others have mentioned. Breakfast was good. I heard several guests called by name as they departed and several remarked that they would "see you in a few weeks" or something to indicate that they plan to be back. I'm thinking in terms of Marion, IL, I might make this my regular stopping point between Alabama and Chicago. Unlike my first stay, this time I was looking for a good meal and I discovered quite a few really nice places within a few blocks...McAlister Deli, Red Lobster, O'Charleys, Steak-N-Shake, Bob Evans, several local restaurants as well, and there's a shopping center within a few blocks. It's obvious this staff goes out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and to see that they enjoy their stay. I'll be back! Not a thing wrong with the nearby Holiday Inn Express, but for the money, I think Comfort Inn beat 'em a bit.
