Of the Comfort Inns where I have stayed, this one was better than the average. The room, with one king bed, was spacious. If it had two beds, it may have felt a bit tight. As is true with most Comfort Inns, the room was plain but functional. Everything was clean and the maid did a good job each night on the fourth floor cleaning up and putting things in order. The shower head was a little low for very tall people, but it provided hot water almost immediately.
The elevator was the one place that needed to be cleaned. There was no evidence of it having been cleaned in some time.
Breakfast was typical Comfort Inn level and it was included with the price of the room. They offered cereal, pastries, fruit, breads, a couple of hot items, make-your-own waffles, beverages and similar items.
If you are a jogger, there is a large development behind the nearby Volvo dealer where it is easy to run. It is much safer than running on Carlisle Pike which lacks sidewalks.
P.S. Try the nearby Black and Bleu restaurant.
