“Amazing breakfast!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Other than the chain breaking in the toilet tank, the motel was really great for the money. The continental breakfast had everything, and an attendant! They have an outdoor pool, but we didn't have time to use it. Also, there is a great Mexican restaurant nearby.

We were on a road trip from IL to SC and needed somewhere to spend the night. We saw the sign for the Comfort Inn on the interstate and decided to take a look. I'm a germophobe and very picky when it comes to hotels, but this place exceeded my expectations. It was bustling with people when we arrived, with many people in the lobby waiting to check-in. The guy at the front desk, Josh, was super friendly and nice, and handled the crowd well. I quickly checked TripAdvisor reviews while we waited in line to get a room, saw the great reviews, and decided to spend the night here. And it was great! The room was clean, spacious, and nicely appointed. They also serve complimentary breakfast which was simple but nice. A great stay, for one night or more. I think the hotel must be quite popular with locals because there were a lot of people here.

We stopped for the night here and were very happy with the spacious room, fluffy white towels,
friendly staff, security guard on watch all night outside to protect our boat and other recreational vehicles in the lot and the fresh complimentary breakfast. We heard the owner collects antiques and there were cool antiques in the public spaces and outside that made the hotel unique and fun.

We have stayed here a few times before while visiting family in LaFollette TN. I love this hotel, its very quiet, rooms are very large, bathroom is huge and its very clean. The bed was so comfortable this last time we stayed. But I want to mention a Young man who was working the desk on Friday evening when we checked in. His name was Joshua and he was sooooo nice and so sweet. He was handeling the crowd very well, in person and people calling on the phone. For being as young as he was I was very impressed with him. As we checked out on Sat. morning he was already there AGAIN. Hope he stays for awhile. Breakfast was good and check out was easy. Great Hotel we will be back again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor was very quiet..

Had a really Nice Stay, Price was right, pictures and stuff real nice.....Breakfast was Normal for these hotels....Staff was very friendly and there was plenty of parking .....the exit looks weird with the Super adult Book store...but i assure you the hotel is not...............................it would be real nice if a motel could ever organize the breakfast area, maybe even separate the food from the dining area...The internet was fast the Flat Screens were nice and the bed was comfortable, what more can i Say...?? It was all good.

We usually stay at this Comfort Inn whenever we are travelling through this area, and this year was no exception. We made just an overnight stay at this Inn that is in the mountains. Cheerful rows of white lights border the driveway and lead to the inn which sits on a hill. We always pick up a coupon book at each state’s Welcome Center, so we presented the Comfort Inn coupon at check in, and it saved us about $10 off the nightly rate. With tax included, the charge was $85.63.

One of novel things about this hotel is its “gallery” of old photos and memorabilia, hanging on the hall walls. It’s fun to examine these items on our way to the room. Incidentally, our room was immaculate—swept right to the edges, which other hotel housekeepers often fail to reach.

The hotel is near an absolutely wonderful Mexican restaurant that's just on the other side of the expressway, within walking distance of the hotel for most people. Be sure to try one of their dinners while you're staying here in the mountains! Mmmmm. Delicious food!

Now for a downside of this visit: Although breakfast was ready on time, several of the standard foods were missing. There was cream cheese for bagels but the bagel case was empty. I watched one guy survey the empty bins and just grab a banana and a box of cereal and leave. The sweet roll bin (my husband's usual favorite) was also empty.

They did have biscuits, but not the sausage gravy that we sometimes see at this hotel chain, and there was a toaster, but no bread at all for those of us who prefer to have toast and avoid the biscuits and other less healthy fare. The menu included small round omelettes, some boxes of cold cereal and a basket of bananas. I watched one guest head to the waffle machine, but the batter dispenser was shut down, with a cup over the spout.

Since no breakfast attendant was present, my husband went to the main desk to ask if the server had perhaps forgotten these items, or perhaps was bringing them later. No one was on duty at the desk, but he noticed a lady sitting on the sofa watching the TV. He approached her and, finding that she was the desk clerk, he asked her about the missing items. She told him that they were not available that day.

Upon checking out, my husband was told by the desk clerk that the attendant eliminates those items from the menu if only ten or fewer rooms are occupied on a given night. So, although breakfast was certainly adequate, it was not the full menu that we had enjoyed at other Comfort Inns. All in all, it seemed short-sighted for the hotel manager to base his breakfast choices on room occupancy, thereby penalizing loyal customers for something that is beyond their control. We asked about this Comfort Inn's policy at another hotel, and they agreed that it is a strange one indeed!
