“Ok Place to Sleep”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

If you're looking for an ok place to sleep for a night or two...this place will do. But...if you're looking to spend alot of time in your room, at pool, etc. then go to the Hampton Inn which isn't too far from Comfort Inn.

I will say that the staff was VERY friendly and helpful. It's just the place needed some basic cosmetic work done to improve the overall quality such as carpet cleaned (rooms and hallway), ventilation in the bathrooms (rooms were very musty), fix the waffle maker that didn't work while we were there.

Room Tip: No elevator in this hotel. Ask for a room on ground floor level in the back away from road.

Reviewed 1 July 2012

stayed here one night in June

PROS
The bed was comfortable. The towels were plush. The A/C was digital (newer).

We enjoyed the pool. The pool has towels there, was oddly, despite the big sign saying all guests must shower before using the pool, there were no showers down there. When I asked the receptionist if we were supposed to shower in out room and then walk dripping to the pool, she just said that most people ignore the sign.

free popcorn in the lobby was nice touch.

CONS
-The room smelled very damp/musty, which was gross.
-The wifi kept cutting out every minute or two
-When my wife tried to call me (long distance), the receptionist kept screwing up the transfer, so that she had to call back 5 times before finally getting through, costing us who knows how much in long distance charges.

The room was clean, and in good order. The Front Desk Staff were very courteous. The Hotel entrance is hiding behind a Taco Bell - so we passed it several times.

The GPS did not find this hotel,so I had to call to get directions. The attendant was very helpful and able to direct me to the hotel (behind Taco Bell). Rooms are average hotel style room. Nothing fancy. There is a pool at the hotel, but no workout room. The breakfast is served from 6-10am and very good, fresh fruit, waffles, eggs, sausage, bagles, coffee, cereal, etc. A super selection. Overall, a great place to stay if you need a simple place with no frills.

Reviewed 16 May 2012

When looking for a place to stay in Marion, I was concerned by the number of hotels that had poor reviews with words like "moldy" "dirty" etc. The Comfort was clean and fresh - exactly what we were looking for as a place to sleep. The breakfast was very good. They even had blueberry waffles, although the coffee was weak (but I'm a coffee snob).
Will definitely stay there the next time I'm headed to the Black Mountains.

I am not all that familiar with the area and needed a one night place to stay before embarking on a Mount Mitchell climb. After looking online at my options, I thought the Comfort Inn would be a decent choice. The map has it about an hour away from the base campground.

My first floor room was clean although dated. I would definitely stay here again.

The night clerk was very friendly and checked me in very quickly.
