I just stayed at the Comfort Inn recently, and I will never be going back. I stayed there because of price but it ended costing me more than $1000 in stolen property right out of my room. If you care about your safety or property don’t stay here. My laptop computer, IPod and some jackets were stolen from my room while I was out touring. The hotel is run down and dirty and I had noticed that our door did not shut well and did not lock unless you pulled until you heard the lock click. We were there 3 days and each day I pulled the door shut and made sure it was secure before leaving. The problem was the maid did not do this one day and when we returned from a day out we found our door open and several things stolen from the room. We reported this to the management, including the owner who was working at the time, and they did not seem to care at all. They told us there nothing they could do and said we could report this to the police if we wanted to. There was no apology or any feelings expressed which really bothered my wife. They also told us that this was very unusual and had not happened before. When we Sarasota Police officers came to make out the report they told us there were several incidents of theft, drugs and prostitution at this hotel and the ones surrounding it and told us we it would be better to avoid this area on out next trip.
Aside from that experience and new found information about this being a high crime area the hotel is really run down. The room we had was dirty, the bathroom tub was pretty gross and our room had stained towels the first day so we had to request new ones, the carpet floor was sticky and you didn’t want to walk barefoot on it. The breakfast a fair but wasn’t kept very well stocked so you needed to get there early if you wanted to eat.
I probably could put up with the filthy room and mediocre breakfast because the price was a little cheaper than other hotels but I will not being staying at this hotel in the future because I do not feel comfortable leaving my belongings in the room and I do not get the impression that the management or owner cared about our problem or had any intention of fixing it.
