Bottom line...I've stayed at worse hotels, but I've also stayed at much better hotels for less. Having arrived in Riverside after just staying at the MGM Grand in Vegas, I'll admit I was a tad spoiled. For the rate I paid, however, I was expecting a little better out of a Choice Hotels property.
For starters, my brother was staying with me and noticed a little mold in the bathroom. We didn't really say anything about it only because my brother was more concerned about simply having a place sleep at night. One other thing we noticed is the lack of electrical outlets we were able to use to charge cell phones, electric razors, laptops, etc. It seemed like all but one outlet was covered by furniture. To use the iron that was provided, we had to unplug either a lamp or the alarm clock in the front corner of the room.
The beds were comfortable enough, but it seemed like the mattress covers came off a little too easily. If you toss and turn at night, I guarantee that your cover will be halfway off the mattress in the morning.
It's also worth mentioning that a tip experienced travelers give advising you to wear a pair of flip flops when you're in a hotel room certainly applies to this property. I forgot to bring flip flops on this trip, and when I got ready to take a shower on my first morning here, I noticed the bottom of my feet were almost completely black. Needless to say, I found this relatively nasty.
If your travels ever take you to Riverside, I would strongly recommend staying at the Courtyard by Marriott (1510 University Ave) as opposed to this particular Comfort Inn.
