Had the chance to stay at the new Comfort Suites in Augusta for one night. It is so new that "Riverwest Drive" does not appear on my GPS or on many online maps. Just know that you take Exit 200 off I-20 and you'll see it on the hill.
Check in was easy enough, (though the manager was needed by the clerk at one point and there I met the only unfriendly face of my visit). All the regular things you expect from a CS:
All Day Coffee, Free WiFi, Business center with printer and fax service (who still faxes?).
The lobby (and in fact the whole property) is clean and bright. My 2nd floor room was somewhat spacious and certainly comfortable but still only one room. There is an 18" deep wall partition running floor to ceiling to delineate the living and sleeping areas...pretty common in Comfort Suites, I think. There was room for a love seat, floor lamp, end table and a cabinet unit that opened to reveal a microwave and mini fridge. The flat screen TV was nice (no HD though), but it took some doing to figure out the programming on the remote to change channels.
Breakfast was free and a notch ot two above muffins and juice. I had the sausage biscuit (or two) and it was restaurant (if not grandma) quality. The breakfast attendant was particularly engaging and a wonderful asset to the property.
I know it is easy to keep a brand new hotel spotless, but they are off to a great start.
