Was not expecting much from an older Comfort Inn with a corporate rate of only $67 but wow was I pleasantly surprised.....this place is a fantastic value.
I had a king bed room which was large, clean, modern and well equipped. It looks as though my room was totally renovated recently, i I think nearly everything had been replaced, with the exception of the older AC unit which still worked well.
Mattress was a newer (2012) Simmons BeautyRest, it was maybe a tad firm for my personal taste but not too bad. It's an innerspring mattresses that has foam mattress properties in that your significant other can toss and turn and it does not bother/affect the other person. I guess it sort of mimics a Tempur-Pedic type mattresses. Whatever the case, while it was not my favorite, it wasn't bad either, I tend to prefer really soft mattresses that you sink into.
Room had a lot of nice amenities, I particularly enjoyed the microwave, fridge and the comfortable desk and chair to work at.
Wireless Internet was FAST, speed tests showed 17 Mbps download speeds, which is on the higher end that you will find in any hotel.
Location was good, right in the middle of Saginaw and Flint, so quick and easy access to both those cities, in fact when I am working in either of those cities I will stay in this Comfort because it's the nicest Choice Hotel in the area and worth driving the couple of additional miles.
All in all this is a great hotel for the price. Just a couple of minor issues, the walls are very thin so you can hear people coughing, snoring, etc in the rooms next to you. Also the parking lot is a little on the small side, in fact it was totally full during my stay so if your driving a large RV or pulling a trailer parking could be an issue if you don't get a spot early.
Other then that the place is great though and I will definitely return, I'll call this one 4.5 stars.
