“OK--not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2009

Stayed for 5 nights while visiting family in Florida. This is a typical Comfort Inn--free breakfast, coffee in room, free wi-fi--all good things. The 'negative' of the trip was the room smelled like a sewer problem when we first checked in. We kept the fan/light going in the bathroom 24/7 during our stay and that seemed to help keep the smell down to a tolerable level. I don't know if it was a problem only for our room or if it is a general problem in that entire area of town, but it wasn't pleasant. Other than that, the stay was just fine. Oh! Except the 'breakfast lady' makes all the waffle and has a tip jar nearby....since all other Comfort Inns I've stayed at let us do everything ourselves, I felt 'pressured' to give her a tip if she made me a waffle...not a feeling I appreciate.

Stayed July 2009, travelled as a couple

Got a deal through Hotwire at this hotel for one night before our cruise out of Port Everglades. Hotwire rated the hotel 2.5 stars.

The hotel is about 10 miles north of Ft.Lauderdale Airport, no shuttle offered. Along Commercial Blvd, on the way to the hotel, we noticed a few restaurants in strip malls. Near the hotel, the restaurant options become scarse.

We checked in with no problems and had a room with two queen beds which were very comfortable. The room was well appointed with a microwave and fridge. Bathroom was clean, with standard amenities but a little dated.

Continental breakfast was plentiful, good selection with an attentive staff ensuring everything was well stocked.

Free internet was a plus.

Overall, a good stay and no complaints. We'd rate it three stars.

Ive stayed at this comfort inn many times and i must say that this most recent stay was most enjoyable. The guest rooms are updated and very nicely decorated and clean! The breakfast area was small but very nice and the staff was very willing to help in anyway. Most of all the frontdesk staff was very pleasant everyone smile and made me feel real welcome.

We stayed here two nights - 12/10 - 12/12/07. The best description would be the hotel served our purposes, which were pretty basic. Here's a rundown of the good stuff and bad: Arrival from the east - kind of tricky because the hotel's sign is hidden by shrubbery - it comes up very quick as you approach the entrance. Check-in - uneventful and pretty fast. First impressions of the room - a bit outdated decor, kind of tired, but not too bad. Room and bathroom were very clean. One noticeable downer - the rooms are non-smoking and clean. However, the hallways need fumigating - traces of cigarette smell remain. Continental breakfast - pretty basic, but presented well. An excellent little cafe right in the nearby plaza for those who want more elaborate fixings. Location - very convenient location to get just about anywhere in this area. The bottom line? A good quality hotel in this price range. Nothing brand new or fancy - which fits the bill sometimes.

It was like Hotel California, you can check in but you can never leave.........with a receipt that is.

The last two times I was unable to leave with a receipt that showed my charges. Once was due to a new employee not knowing how to print a receipt and the second time the lazy night clerk hadn't bothered to run the "nigh audit" so she couldn't give me one. Or this was her excuse as she sat sleepy eyed wrapped in her blanket. It was 5:45am and I was in a hurry. I'm still waiting on a faxed copy of the receipt.

As for the hotel it's fine, rooms are clean and rates fair. I didn't have but one garbage can in my room for some reason but I was only staying one night.

The area is a little short on nice restaurants but it's close to the turnpike for quick on and off when traveling.

If I could just get a receipt I might stay there again.

This is a follow-up to a previous posting. We left a bad hotel (Ramada Plaza Resorts on State Route 7) to come to the Comfort Inn on Commercial blvd. The hotel was nice, but did have a few problems. We were able to book this room at 2:30 am, which was great. The front desk staff was really nice. The room looked good, clean and free of BUGS, which was our last problem. We had 2 queen beds, which was comfortable and the rooms all have microwaves & refrigerators. Nice cherry wood furniture also. They do offer free wireless internet, but in order to print, you need to use their computer which charges you to do that. The only problem we had were some loud travelors around our room and the plumbing sounded like a wounded buffalo or something dying when being used from another room. It was loud enough to wake us up in the early morning. Also, 1st day we put a do-not -disturb sign on the door indicating that we did not need housekeeping that day. We removed the sign the next day and expected our room to be cleaned. Even though the sign was taken down, Housekeeping totally skipped our room. We had to go to the front desk to get towels and change our own trash bags! So, this room was better in some ways, but also had problems. All in all, if they fix the plumbing issues, this would be a good hotel to stay in for the price ($71.99).

  • Liked — 2 Queen beds, cherry wood furniture, free wireless internet
  • Disliked — Loud plumbing in the hotel.

We stayed here twice June 2007 July 2007 before and after a cruise. The hotel has been remodelled. The new furniture is beautiful. The linens on the beds were not clean. One bed had been slept in. To say that the shuttle service was horriblle would be an understatement. We waited over an hour at the airport for them to pick us up. When we returned from the cruise there were about 20 people going to the Comfort Inn. Many called for the shuttle. We were all told that the driver was on his way or that he was already there. Over 1 hour and 45 mintues after I made my first call, the shuttle finally arrived. We finally to the check into our room at 1 AM -- I have an 8 year old child who was very tired. The breakfast was a joke. They were out of many of the items. The staff was totally unconcerned. The main reason I chose this Comfort Inn was because of the shuttle and the breakfast. I stayed here 3 years ago before they remodelled. It was much better then. The service was great and the breakfast was out of this world. Too bad when they remodelled they lost their service.

baniasthana, manager at Comfort Inn, responded to this review, 3 July 2008
It seems the reviewer got the hotel mixed up.There are atleast 6 Comfort Inn or Comfort Suites in the Greater Ft.Lauderdale area.
We are located about 12 miles from the airport and we do not offer shuttle service for pick up or drop off.
