We were meeting a family member and needed an affordable overnight place to stay--a difficult find in the Poconos on a summer weekend. The Comfort Inn seemed to be the best compromise between quality, location, and price based on other reviews.
Our stay almost met my middling expectations. On the plus side, the bed was comfortable, the room was clean--but a bit musty--and the lobby area was well kept.
On the down side, the TV remote had to be aimed directly at the satellite dish box, which was blocked by the TV itself from the main viewing area. This made changing channels cumbersome. In the evening, we used the hotel pool and there were no dry towels. It took almost a half hour after the initial call to have towels delivered by the night manager (the only staff member we saw in the evening).
The breakfast buffet setup was very hard to navigate. It was in a room that was only 3-4 feet maximum wide for walking, requiring guests to jostle one another as they entered and left the area. The complimentary breakfast itself was somewhat spartan--hardboiled eggs from a hermetically sealed plastic bag constituted most of the "hot" breakfast. The single Belgian waffle maker was inadequate for the number of people seeking to use it. And because of the line to make waffles, the problems due to the narrow layout of the room were exacerbated While cold cereal was plentiful, the hotel ran out of milk. With both a Walmart and K-mart within .5 miles, this could easily have been avoided or remedied--but it was not.
In summary, the ratings we saw of area hotels at the lower-middle end of the price spectrum in Mount Pocono were not heartening. This was the best in its class, a bit above average. Our experience was that The Choice Inn may be best-in-class in Mount Pocono, but if our experience was typical, expect a slightly below average stay.
