Comfort Inn University
Ranked #8 of 24 Hotels in Riverside
Reviewed 19 February 2007

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.

We were warned that this end of University Ave was dangerous, with shootings. As out of towners, we didn't know what to expect, but it was just like any big city location. We found the staff uniformly polite and professional, the location just fine, the room well-maintained and safe, and the (mildly heated) pool clean. It was a good deal for the price and never did we feel unsafe or disappointed.

Free breakfasts add to the deal - toast your own bagels and make your own waffles, with coffees and juices. Great for families. We'd stay again.

The Comfort Inn, Riverside, California was quiet when we stayed there (two nights a week apart) and reasonably priced. The front desk staff was very helpful in giving us the type of room we wanted. The continental breakfas was good with Krispy Creme donuts (Krispy Creme is next door to the Comfort Inn.) Everything was very clean. We would stay there again.

Despite being on the edge of a ragged neighborhood, this C.I. was above average for the chain. The room was nicely furnished with an easy chair and ottoman. The property was quiet even though it was near railroad tracks. The desk staff was very professional and helpful. It is just a few minutes' drive from downtown Riverside, unfortunately too far (and probably not safe) to walk.
