I have been reluctant to stay in this hotel on prior trips due to being outdated but when I saw that this Comfort Inn had recently been renovated, I decided to give it a try. Upon arrival I found that the hotel was easily accessible, right off of the main strip and near many restaurants and stores. The lobby was large with the front desk and a separate full-size living room/sitting area with coffee available all the time. There was one elevator located right across from the front desk as well as an open staircase, and down a short hallway was the breakfast room where free breakfast was served daily. I didn't get to try the breakfast, though. They gave me a smoking room on the 4th floor, which I asked for, and I was very happy with the beds, layout, and decor. Even the bathroom had been refreshed a lot. The red and gold hues of the room made it warm and inviting, and the added amenities of the refrigerator, microwave, full-size desk with convenient outlets, and large screen tv made it feel like home. The beds were comfortable and there were pillows aplenty and the hotel was very quiet overall, no disturbances or crowds whatsoever. I actually cannot wait to stay here again. As an added bonus, other nearby hotels were going to run around $350-$450 for my 3 nights and were less convenient to my needs, and this Comfort Inn came in at $272.
