We stayed at the Comfort Inn for two nights, a Thursday and a Friday night. We knew the hotel was attached to Splash Lagoon, so we anticipated that there would probably be a lot of kids.
We checked in on Thursday and everything went fine. We had a suite with a jetted tub, and the room was clean and comfortable. The only downside was that our room had a view of the breakfast area. Next time, we might ask for a room on the second (top) floor.
Breakfast our first morning, Friday morning, was good. There were scrambled eggs available, along with sausage, various bread products, and juices. It was not very crowded and it was a pleasant experience.
Friday evening things started to change. We attempted to go to dinner, but a bus decided to pull up to the front door and block us (and 4-5 other cars). I asked the bus driver if he could pull forward so we could get out and he starting yelling at us. We waited to go do dinner. Apparently the bus was carrying a collegiate girl's sports team; as we heard all night long with them running and yelling in the hallways.
Saturday morning was not as pleasant as Friday morning was. First, we were awakened by a fire alarm. Apparently some parents decided not to supervise their children when they were using the waffle-maker in the breakfast area. There are signs clearly posted asking parents to supervise children when using the waffle maker. The alarms continued most of the morning. We decided to check out and eat elsewhere. During our checkout procedure the woman behind the desk had to ask numerous parents to supervise their children using the waffle maker. We wondered why they don't remove the waffle makers on weekends, to avoid unsupervised children from setting of the fire alarms with the waffle makers.
Our recommendation is to stay away from this hotel on the weekends.
