“Great time”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

One of the first things we noticed about this place was that the employees enjoyed working here. They had fun joking with each other and guests. Even the shift manager got in on the fun teasing his employees.
We forgot to ask for a lower level room (as my parents can't climb stairs) and were initially assigned a room on the second floor. There's no elevator here (only down side we found), but they were very quick to move our room to the lower level. While we were getting our room, my mom had a bathroom emergency and they brought her to the employee restroom. She said that even that was clean.
Besides that, it was clean. I even felt comfortable laying down on the floor to play with my daughter. While the bath tub was obviously older and worn, it was clean. And I'm sure that the bedding was clean. Our room was next to the laundry room and we could hear laundry being done each evening. (despite being next to the laundry room, it wasn't so loud that we couldn't get to sleep)
There was a free continental breakfast. And it was more than I expected. I expected cereal and doughnuts and bagels. But there was also hard boiled eggs, English muffins and gravy and biscuits. And the woman who kept the breakfast stocked never stopped moving. She did a great job of not only keeping food on the bar area but keeping it clean too. She also found time to be friendly and chat with guests or help them when needed. She also cleared our plates for us while we chatted with other guests or employees.
The safe in our room wasn't working. But as soon as we alerted the front desk, the shift manager came down to look at it, replace the batteries and took care of us right away.
There is a pool, but we didn't use it. It was always busy though.
My family would stay here again without a second thought. We were very pleased with our stay.

Room Tip: Room 110-112 were close to the pool and laundry. No elevator, so if stairs are a problem, request a...

As a temp contract employee, I had occasion to stay at the Comfort Inn for about 7 months during week days. I commuted back home on weekends. My wife and I had decided not to rent an apartment for such a short assignment. The hotel was clean, had microwave and fridge in the room, table and chairs, big flat screen TV, and generally all the comforts of home. Most of the time I stayed in the same suite type room each week. They reserved it for us.

One of the downsides was, the bed. It was not very comfortable, too soft. We also learned to bring in our own pillows to help that issue. Another downside was the "hot" breakfast could have been better compared to other hotels that serve free breakfast. But it was adequate, not great.

The employees and manager were very friendly and helpful. After 7 months we knew them quite well. The cost was reasonable.

Room Tip: You should know that there are 2 floors, but no elevator. So if you have a problem with stairs, rese...

It might be older than nearby hotels but it is clean. We just wanted a place with a pool and hot tub and free breakfast and those 3 things were perfect. Employees were nice and helpful. Our room was quiet...we were surprised to find others in the breakfast room...we thought we were the only ones there.

Checked in in nov 2012 for a 5 day stay for a funeral. Checked out one day later. Dated, old and rough-looking employees was my first impression. The room wasen't exactly dirty, but one of our comforters had stains on it. Bathroom was ok but very small. It was hard to get out of the way of the door to get it shut. Continental breakfast was good. We slept there one night and when we came back on night two, our bathroom had little ants all over it! We immediately checked out and changed hotels. The staff was nice overall but as I mentioned before, was rough. Also several times we came in or out there was an employee smoking at the front entrance - Big turn-off! Talked to family that live in town and they were shocked we were staying there. One works in law enforcement and told us that meth labs and prostitution have been busted there. AVOID.

Checked in yesterday...non smoking room smelled like smoke. Even went to Dollar General for room freshner and a candle...didn't help much. Removed our clothes from the suitcase today and could not believe how bad they smelled. Maybe have all non-smoking rooms together...Noticed smoking and non-smoking rooms on the same hall. We did notice that the light switch by the door had to be on for the TV and the desk light to work. Maybe a sign to tell the traveler that information would be helpful. On a good note, the bed was very comfortable, the room was clean, breakfast was adequate (small area), and staff was friendly.
