My family checked in after a 5 hour drive the room smelled of smoke but we were late for a dinner so we left thinking oh well we are only sleeping here. 🙄. So we didn’t complain, then once home I seen they charged me a $250.00 fee after calling it was because of the smoke smell we also smelt when we arrived!! Me and my husband are NON SMOKERS! So we are falsely accused for this and they are saying there is nothing they can do!! Give us our money back that’s what you can do!! Other hotels are also on this road I would stay there instead!

After reading some of the reviews on this hotel I felt it was necessary to write a review from the perspective of someone who had to stay here for more than a night or a weekend. While this hotel needs updating the rooms and hotel are very quiet and clean. This hotel is located off the highway and is convenient for anybody, including but not limited to construction workers. unfortunately the hotel is cleaned during the day and on occasion when the construction workers arrive after a long day at work there work boots or gear have dirt/mud on them which gets tracked into the hotel lobby, stairway or hallways but is always cleaned in the morning. The breakfast that is provided is hot and delicious and their always enough to have seconds. The rooms are priced reasonable and are extremely quiet that you rarely hear anything. The staff make sure that your stay is comfortable and go above and beyond to accommodate any of your needs Many thanks to the managers Richard and Heather and the team at the Comfort Inn

Stayed here overnight for work related duty. One of the reasons I chose this is the proximity to highway 400 and it was relatively close to the work. Check in went without and hitch. The room assignment posed an issue but Patrick the front desk clerk was reasonable. The room was plain and expected with the star rating assigned to it. The free hot breakfast was simple with sausages and eggs bread and pastries. The coffee machine was not working and the guy that was working at the front desk and sort of watching over breakfast was inconsiderate. As I told him that the coffee machine was not dispensing coffee but hot water. Rather than understanding and figuring out how to replenish the coffee machine. He told me to wait till 7am. That's when the kitchen help was arriving. I told him my start time was at 7am. He didn't even offer any apologies, just sat there and didn't do a thing. Would I recommend this place? I guess you'd be smart enough to know my review and read in between the lines.

If you only need a clean room with a clean lobby then this will do. Near the highway but not any decent restaurants. Because of this, not a great area. Staff are helpful, lobby is very good. Alot of walking at the hotel, if you can't carry tell front desk staff.

We have stayed at this Comfort Inn and suggested it needed a refresh then....now, we would suggest it be downgraded to a Quality Inn (or less). This last visit we experienced the following: No working wifi, no housekeeping service - we were there for 2 nights and our bed did not even get made, a large King Suite, but the bathroom was cramped and everything was old and stained. We rely on Choice Hotels to grade their hotels accordingly.....this one should not be graded as a Comfort Inn unless some immediate improvements happen.
