“The Little Hotel that Tried”
Reviewed 11 August 2008

If only the hotel was as good as its staff.

The positives: friendly, helpful staff, nice pool and workout area, good buffet (pre-made omelets, sausage, bacon, made-to-order waffles, breads, etc.), good wi-fi, and its own stoplight.

The negatives: broken top lock on door, loose hair dryer mount (which my wife pulled off of the wall, right over the sink), and big-time water leaks.

The last is the real problem. When we walked into our room, the carpet was damp and there was a moldy smell. Not oppressive, but enough so a person with an allergy would not have been able to stay. Since there were 3 weddings and a family reunion staying there, there was no possibility of changing rooms. We were more fortunate than others, who had water coming into their rooms during each rain.

To their credit, the front desk did give us a ten dollar compensation per night for our problems.

The staff is also to be commended for handling weekend breakfast for a completely full hotel. Food and beverages were kept full, tables were kept clean. Nice work in a challenging situation.

With some maintenance, Comfort Inn could give the Best Western nearby a run for its money. Until then, you may want to stay there, especially if you're expecting rain.

My husband and I are "frequent flyers" at Choice Hotel's the parent of Comfort Inns. One of us is in some type of Choice Hotel every week. So, we accumulate a lot of hotel points. One night I decided to use points to stay at this hotel. You would have thought I was stealing food out of their mouth they way they reacted at the front desk. The warm smile faded to a cool chill and they made an ordeal out of the check-in process.

This is not the way the rest of the chain responds to the points program. I agree with other posters...the front desk staff needs some customer service training.

Other than the staff, the hotel is what you would expect from an older Comfort Inn.

Our company contacted the hotel because our truck driver needed to sleep for safety purposes. I spoke to the clerk, asked about rooms for the night, only had one left. She gave me a verbal committment for that room for my driver. Only to have the verbal contract broken when he arrived. She then rudely told him he could stay down town at the inn which has rooms above a bar. Doesn't work for a tractor trailer driver.

Be aware that a verbal committment doesn't mean anything to this company. The breach of their verbal agreement cause us a lot of problems when looking to safely get our driver a room.

And watch out for the rude front desk staff. Depending on what you look like they may be just as rude to you as they were to our driver.
