I picked this location based on Trip Advisor reviews and it was as previously described. However I found it to be overpriced for the relatively small room – even for an overnight stop – when compared to similar hotels in other touristy areas in August. The desk said it was because they have a ‘narrow’ tourist season – which is likely true; however it can’t be much narrower than similar, less expensive, hotels in other touristy northern states and Canada, which is where we were going. (A Cleveland, Ohio airport Comfort Inn room is about 2/3 the cost of this one for the same date and twice as large.) Personally I think the high price is due to the proximity to the airport, shopping malls, and possibly their area tax rate(s). Otherwise the room was clean and quite nice with comfortable beds. I was surprised that the toilet was lower than most at about 15” above the floor, which is where you felt you were sitting when using it.
Breakfast was typical Comfort Inn choices but the eggs tasted bland and ever so slightly gritty and could very well have been powered/artificial. The breakfast area was relatively small and very full which also made it quite noisy, but the staff kept it well stocked considering the turnover on a Thursday morning. Given the slightly less favorable reviews for other area lodging I would probably choose this location again if I needed to stop in this area.
