Very convenient location near the interstate. Indifferent check-in clerk. Room was worn and a bit dated, but if was exactly as advertised. Excellent firm bed. This place has the "screw you" check-out time of 11 a.m., but the unpleasant twist is the posted "late check-out fee" of $25, effectively discouraging one from even ASKING for a later check-out. Most consumer-unfriendly.

The hotel isn't the nicest but not the worst either. The front desk people could be a little more helpful, since I had to ask what the wi-fi password was, and then the network kept kicking me off (iPhone/iPad) nearly every time I let the screen close or I was in the middle of something. Multiple gas stations nearby though,...

I was hoping the previous reviews were not accurate. Unfortunately this place is very dated, & smelled like cigarettes in the hallways. The heat & A/c wall unit had a broken shroud and missing louvers & the controls did not function properly. Room was unheated when I arrived on this 11 degree day so it took over an hour to...

Dear Guest, Thanks for your comments. I’m sorry that our efforts to improve the hotel caused some temporary issues and that the way we decorated the room didn’t meet with your approval. We take real pride in meeting guest needs, and this unusual circumstance prevented us from entirely meeting your needs. I hope you will soon give us another chance...

This hotel was warm, safe and comfortable. I stay in Kent often. This will be my hotel away from home from now on.

Very nice, clean, and comfortable for a very low price. Awesome value! Staff were friendly. Will definitely stay again next time in town for a concert at the Dusty Armadillo! Last year, comfort Inn double booked and had no room for us when got there. Much better experience

Front desk person was good, room was nice. Difficult to get to the motel entrance. Breakfast was lacking and the brand new trailer I was told to park in front of building, had lights stold during the night. Verified it was done overnight No video cameras or security makes this a bad choice to stay, when the motels around there...
