“Unexpected quality and cleanliness”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

My wife and I were pleased and surprised at the quality and cleanliness of this economy class hotel. It was what we would expect of a much more expensive lodging-in fact it was one of our best experiences ever.

The Comfort Inn was not available down the street so I stayed here and was very pleased at the quality of the room for the price. Mini fridge and a small micro wave were nice additions. Decent shower and decent options for channels on the TV. Clean and comfortable. Would stay here again, and would choose over the comfort Inn down the street. The only problem found, and for me it's a big problem is the iron is connected to the ironing board. I mean really connected, not just by the cord, but the holder that normally is attached to the wall that holds the iron is screwed into the ironing board itself. This is right on the end that you have to try to iron with.

If they are having a problem with theft, then just charge those folks who take the irons, but this has got to be the dumbest ideal I have ever seen. The boards are almost not workable without a lot of maneuvering.

The hotel was nice and I knew the area because I have stayed there before. When I checked in I had to wait 10 minutes for the attendant acknowledged me while trying to help some with wireless internet. When it was time to turn in we found someones lisense made up in the bed. The carpet neded to be vaccumed. However, once I notified the front desk which was very helpful they corrected everything. The cleaning staff did an excellent job just should have been done the first time. Other than that my stay was nice

Since the hotel is 100% smoke free expect the smokers to prop open the "secure" door allowing their exhaled smoke to filter through the hotel's ventilation system.

The room was dirty with someone's cut fingernails on the floor and some left over trash around the bathroom floor. The decor said "80's".

The TV was old school, but had a good amount of channels.

While the breakfast was complimentary, most of it was stale and the cereals were all off-brands.

The WiFi signal was very poor in the rooms, leaving much to be desired.

Upon checkout, the manager had an "I could care less" attitude. Do yourself a favor, Avoid this location.

Would stay here again. The rooms are outdated, but they weren't worn out. The price is right for the stay. So if you want a clean room, comfortable bed, and a hot shower for a good price... then this is the place.

My only complaint is the rooms being outdated colors...i felt like I walked into my grandmother-in-law's house from the 70's.
