On a visit to relatives we found ourselves needing to extricate ourselves from undesirable rooms we had booked at a usually reliable motel chain. When we called Comfort Inn, helpful staff informed us that there were two rooms left, and if we didn’t mind paying for “premium” with a fireplace or hot tub, they would hold one for us until 5:00 PM. They reassured us we were not far away and shouldn’t have any trouble getting there in time. When we arrived, check in was like a reunion of old friends. Our room was clean and fresh (unlike the place we left). It had a very comfortable king bed and -- it was $20 a night cheaper!!!
As pleased as we were with our “premium” room, it wasn’t exactly what I would think of as “luxury,” since besides the electric fireplace (which we were not inclined to try in late June) it’s furnishing were the same as all the others and the size was about average. Also, there was a clothes-hanging alcove rather than a closet, and the bathroom was tiny. It did have an impressive flat-screen TV though, the adjustable showerhead was fabulous, and it was less expensive than the other motel’s “standard” room.
While the location was convenient right on route 611 near the interstate exit, the Inn was at the back of a kind of tacky parking lot behind “Big Daddy’s” restaurant. There is a lounge right in the motel which offers the benefit of handy food and drink, but is a bit noisy. Fortunately, our room was in the back and in the other wing.
So, while I reserve five stars for a truly luxury room, lots of amenities, and large bathroom -- with the staff who said and did everything right, good bed, reasonable price and great cleanliness, this was a solid four-star plus experience which I plan to repeat in the future.
