This is a typical Comfort Inn, in our experience. We chose it based on location and were able to use points for a free night. The room was reasonably sized but with no extra space and the only upholstered chair was positioned next to the dresser that held the TV so not suitable for viewing. We did find the pillows better than most hotels. The room was clean and attractive. The bathroom was nice but on the small size with little counter space.
We were not able to get a view as recommended by others on Tripadvisor. And the hotel appeared to be fully booked for a dog convention; there were dogs everywhere. Unfortunately, many of them made themselves known by barking early in the morning. We do realize this was not at all the fault of the hotel, just want to share with others that this is obviously a pet-friendly hotel which might have a down-side for those who want quiet but upside for those with furry travel companions.
Our biggest complaint is that the parking lot, when we arrived at 9:30 at night, was totally full. We parked on the street in residential permit-required parking. We saw several out-of-state plates so guess we were not alone.
Breakfast was what we expect from this chain with hot and cold options including hard-boiled eggs and yogurt.
We wish it had not been raining during our visit so we could have taken advantage of the location by the riverfront.
