“Nice, overpriced”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Clean, nice rooms, desk staff "OK", about $35-$50 higher than comparable motels. While nice, I do not find it worth the extra cost. I would prefer to feel satisfied, rather than feel that I had been taken advantage of. Sorry.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with friends

Really more like 3.5 stars . . Located close to Kenyon College in nearby Gambier, this Comfort Inn has very friendly and helpful staff. The two-queen bed room is a nice size, with a small fridge and microwave and the sink outside the bathroom. This design decision offers advantages to some travelers but does impinge on closet space and makes the entrance to the room a bit cramped. There is a nice pool & hot tub, (which we didn't use) but no exercise facilities. We returned to the hotel for our second night to find a small wicker basket full of treats (fritos, microwave popcorn, chocolate bars) and a handwritten note saying that we were the "guests of the day" and hoping that we had enjoyed our visit to Kenyon. That was a very nice touch! However, I can't help noting that the beds hadn't been made or the garbage emptied and I don't think that the room had been cleaned ; not sure what to make of the absence of these standard hotel duties. We hadn't made a big impact on the room/bathroom; it didn't really need cleaning/tidying. Still, I've never had the experience before of coming back to a room (we left around 11:30 and returned after dinner, so plenty of time for cleaning), knowing that hotel staff had been here (the basket) and yet having the beds unmade and the garbage unemptied. An oversight? Wifi was free and fine. All in all, however, a nice little hotel; I would definitely stay here again; the price was right too.

While the bedding still uses quilted comforters, it was clean and allowed for a good night sleep. The hotel had free WiFi and a reasonable business use area. The breakfast was quite good with warmed, prepared foods in addition to the more routine coffee, juice, and dairy and baked goods. Definitely recommend it if staying in town.

We were in town for the IndyCar races. This was a great location. The town of Mt. Vernon is a quaint (up and coming) town with real character. We got there on a Friday night and the Front Desk employee was really nice & told us of events in town. We had dinner at the restaurant behind the hotel...definitely recommend (Winestein). Room was your average room and clean. We will definitely stay here again.

Rooms were clean and neat. BUT when we tried to log into the wireless, we could not connect because we were at the far end from the lobby. We changed rooms with no hassle, but then the chain smokers smelly cigarette smoke was pulled into our room by the wall air conditioner. :-( Again I had to call the desk and they asked the smokers to go out front. But since we were in a non smoking room, it was a unnecessary hassle. The pool and hot tub looked nice but we didn't use them.
