I regularly stay at Comfort Inns, and I was very disappointed with my experience here. I arrived at the hotel after a two-and-a-half hour drive, and the woman at the registration desk told me that there was no restroom for guest use. I did the bathroom-dance in the lobby waiting for another party to check in before it was my turn. (I debated leaving to find somewhere nearby to use the restroom.) After checking in that group, the clerk offered to let me use the staff restroom. (Why didn't she offer that in the first place? "Insurance reasons.")
The room was a fine size, and the best were comfortable, but the room was not clean. The carpet appeared dirty, and there was very obvious black mold in the bathroom, and the finish was missing on several parts of the bathtub. The ceiling was also peeling, with pieces of paint/texture hanging from the ceiling. When I checked out in the morning, the clerk seemed shocked that there was mold in the bathroom. (Either he was faking it or the cleaning crew is doing a poor job keeping administration informed.) During my stay, I passed three different clerks in the lobby, and I was never greeted by any of them. (Not even a smile or nod of the head to acknowledge me.)
I had plans for breakfast with friends, so I didn't stay for the continental breakfast. I did go into the very small breakfast area to get a piece of fruit for my drive home, but I didn't eat my apple because it looked like the fruit wasn't washed before being put out. Gross.
