“Nice for a small town”
Reviewed 14 October 2008

We stayed here while in the area for a family wedding. The hotel was clean and quiet. We had a problem with the lock on our door, but were able to make do with it. The room appeared to be mid-remodel on its decor, as it had newer carpet and had only a blanket and sheet on the bed (we assumed the comforter was pending?). The staff was helpful and attentive. Our extended family enjoyed hanging out together in the lobby/breakfast area, and the pool was nicer than we expected. My brother stayed in the nearby Super 8 and reported that the Comfort Inn was nicer overall. If you're looking for a room in Mt. Vernon, pick the Comfort Inn.

The Comfort Inn in Mount Vernon, MO could be a really nice hotel if they just addressed a couple small areas (the smells and the noisy doors).

We needed to stay in Mount Vernon and found that there were very few choices. Basically it's just the Super 8 or the Comfort Inn (the only two I would recommend) or a few really run down motels.

The first problem I had was even FINDING the Comfort Inn on the Internet. I checked all the major travel sites (and even Choice Hotels directly), but nobody showed it as available (or even existing). I ended up finding them in the yellow pages and calling them directly. They said they had plenty of availability, and that they were in a dispute with Choice Hotels so they were not currently being promoted through Choice. The price they gave me over the phone was quite a bit lower than the Super 8 (or even the motels!) so I gave them a chance.

When we arrived, the first thing that we noticed was that the place was almost vacant. There were four cars in the parking lot (and the most we ever saw was six).

The next thing we noticed, and probably our biggest complaint, was the smells. The lobby area REEKED of cigarette smoke. We got checked in quickly and went to our room, which smelled strongly of chemicals (like mothballs). Our daughter is very sensitive to smoke and mold, so I was a little concerned that it might be a problem. Our noses quickly adjusted to the smell in the room. We only really noticed it the first 10-15 minutes each time we returned to our room.

The room was moderately spacious, but slightly cramped for a family of four. The beds were a little softer than we're used to, so our backs were a wreck by the end of the trip. There were only two (large) drawers to put clothes in. There was a large mini-fridge (nice!) and microwave in the room. The desk/table was fairly large, but had no convenient plugs. Fortunately, I always bring a power strip, which we ran to the plug in the corner. When we went to plug in my wife's fan behind the end table between the beds, we found that the outlet behind it was just hanging loose (not mounted) with no faceplate on it. The carpet, bedspreads, and decorations were fine but a little worn.

The walls are thin and the doors were extremely noisy, which was the other major problem we experienced. If you didn't carefully close the door, it would loudly slam shut. Although there were only (at best) ten rooms being used, it was quite noisy. With two kids still taking naps during the day, that can be (and was) a problem.

The free continental breakfast was one of the best ones I've ever seen. They had a commercial waffle-maker and pre-measured waffle batter, so you could make fresh waffles. There were also danishes, baggles, boiled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, and more.

The housekeeping staff was very, very helpful. By the time we got up, ate breakfast, and got everyone dressed every day, it was almost time for our youngest to take her first nap. With so few rooms, they would be done cleaning before she woke up. We explained the situation to them, and they happily came in and did a quick cleaning (make the beds, change out towels, empty trash) before her nap each morning. The only problem we had with hosuekeeping was that two of them stood outside our door chatting loudly one day while our daughter was trying to nap.

During our daughter's morning nap, we would take our 3-year old son to the indoor pool to swim. It wasn't anything fancy, but it certainly fit our needs. The Hot Tub never got hot. The pool could use resurfacing, but it's fine. We were a bit perturbed that an employee would come in to the pool area and smoke while we were swimming. You can get towels for the pool at the front desk.

The free Wi-Fi worked great. I was able to get online and work when I needed to.

The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. They even let us use the pool after hours one day. They would always say "Hi" when we came and left.

I have a hard time trying to decide whether to give them 3 or 4 stars. The price was great. The amenities (indoor pool, free Wi-Fi, free continental breakfast with waffles, mini-fridge and microwave in room) were better than expected. The smells and noisy doors are annoying, but are fairly minor.

If we were to stay in Mount Vernon again, we would gladly stay here again.

Have stayed at this hotel several times in the last six years, but no more! Reserved non-smoking rooms, got smoking rooms the last three times. Rooms were dirty, in one room the tub had a hole in it and a dangling light fixture in the bathroom. To add insult to injury the last time we stayed we were overcharged on our reserved rate. When we pointed this out to the clerk, he told us it wasn't enough money to worry about. This used to be a fairly decent hotel, but has declined sharply. Save yourself some grief and stay across the road!
