Highly recommend this hotel. Very comfortable rooms, cozy and inviting. Newly updated furniture, very comfy bed and fluffy pillows. Only negative would be the heating system needs updating. Friendly staff and very accommodating. Pleasure to stay here.

I stayed at the Comfort Inn for 2 nights. In this time I encountered some of the best staff and customer service I have ever received in a hotel. The breakfast staff was by far the highlight. Friendly, accommodating and generous. Above and beyond the call of duty. Accommodations were lovely as well but it was the staff that put this location above and beyond other hotels.

Since their recent renovations they have been very nice and helpful. I stayed for 10 days and they made my stay so very nice as I was there cause my mom was in the hospital. I can't say enough about the staff and facilities. Right next to a Tim Horton's/Wendy's and a very short distance from KFC and Subway and malls not to mention Walmart are all close. Thanks For the great rooms and service staff

I booked a 3 night stay at this property as I was attending an event in the area. I booked my room directly with the hotel over the phone. The reservation process was friendly and the staff member made sure that I got the best available rate. I note that other reviewers found the hotel on the expensive side, but I found the rate that I was offered was quite reasonable. (This could have had something to do with the fact that I was staying here in October.) The hotel was a little hard to find, and I had to ask a local for directions. It is located in the bog box shopping area of town, and it is close to a grocery store and quite a few fast food outlets. My room was a little tired looking, particularly the carpeting and the sofa, but it was clean, the bed was newer and extremely comfortable, the bathroom appeared to have been updated and the linens and towel were plentiful and of good quality. (In my experience, a stack of fluffy white towels makes up for a lot of sins and the folks at the Comfort Inn seem to have figured this out. ) The television was also a newer flat screen model. Upon check in I noticed that one of the lamps in my room was not working. I reported the problem to the front desk and it was fixed immediately. I did partake of the continental breakfast on several mornings. As other reviewers have pointed out, the current breakfast area is extremely small, but it is a decent free breakfast with a selection of muffins, breads, juice and fruit. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again, particularly because of the price.

Room Tip: This is two story hotel with no elevator. If you have mobility issues or if you are lugging a lot of stuff, you are taking the stairs.

We stopped at this Comfort Inn late at night and from our past experience with other Comfort Inn's we figured it would be up to par. While the beds were quite comfortable, the bathrooms were rather lacking in the clean department. There was gunk and hair bristles left behind around the faucet from one of the past guests shaving, it was truly unappealing while brushing my teeth. Again, while other Comfort Inn's have been fantastic with their hot continental breakfasts, this place left a lot to be desired. Breakfast was only being offered until 9am, there wasn't enough room to accommodate the guests lined up in the lobby for their breakfast (only 3 small tables accommodating only 6 guests), tables were not cleaned off after use and certainly not cleaned up under the tables (lots of food all over the floor) by the lady managing the breakfast, and not much in the way of selection. While the lady managing this continental breakfast was quite friendly, her time would have been better spent cleaning up and restocking rather than hovering over the last of the guests trying to acquire their breakfasts all to be told, "I am on a time crunch here, you'll have to get what you want and go". All in all, with no other amenities namely a pool or the hot breakfast as most other Comfort Inn's offer, I would suggest passing on this stop.

I sincerely apologize for the housekeeping issue and guarantee that the Housekeeping Supervisor will be made aware. Staff retraining will then follow. We will soon be under renovation and the free hot breakfast will be introduced. The dining room will also be increased in size. When we are fully renovated I hope you will return to compare your stay experience. Thank you again for your review.
