While this Comfort Inn may not be the most extravagant hotel in the Hampton Roads region, it is a good choice for those who want something clean, basic, and close to points of interest. The room and hallways were very clean and well-kept. A lot of the appliances in the room such as the lamps and alarm clock looked like they have been there for years because they seemed to have signs of wear on them. Since everything was perfectly operational, I would not say they needed to be replaced but the signs of wear were visible. The TV was a CRT tube TV which still worked very well, although some channels had less clear picture than others. When I hooked up my portable DVD player to the TV with RCA cables, it worked fine and the picture was good.
Free breakfasts were included, although they can be a hit or miss. One day, the eggs tasted fresh while another day, they tasted like they were reheated. Other than that, the rest of the food such as the oranges and waffles tasted fine. The free coffee included was very good as well and there was also a coffee maker in the room.
The exercise room was of a moderate size had some good equipment for both cardio and weight lifting exercises. Like in most hotels, you need to use the same key card you use for your room to get in. There were drink vending machines on every floor, and I saw a snack machine only on the first floor. There is an outdoor pool, but it is seasonal so it was obviously closed in December. Free wireless internet is available, and it worked well on my laptop.
The location of the hotel is excellent because it is close to many different stores and restaurants. It is walking distance from Patrick Henry Mall and a short drive away from a number of shopping centers. I would consider Virginia's Hampton Roads region to be the state's best region to visit for tourists, although I can tell that many more out-of-town and out-of-state travelers visit in the spring and summer than in the winter for obvious reasons. Even around New Years time, there are many places to visit in the region and with this hotel being no more than an hour away from Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and the historic triangle (Yorktown, Williamsburg, Jamestown), it is an ideal hotel for those who want all of the desired amenities they would need in a hotel for several days while saving money at the same time.
