“Request a second floor room...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

My family and I stayed one night at the Comfort Inn in Surfside and our room was pretty dank.
I am just going to do a simple pro/con list.

Pros:
1. Fantastic location. It's about a mile from the beach, which is great.
2. The pool looked nice. We did not stay long enough to enjoy it.
3. The breakfast staff (Aug 16th, 2013) was delightful and hard working.
4. The front desk staff were nice and polite.
5. Breakfast was okay. The waffles were great. The eggs and sausage links were not so great.
6. Pretty clean, no bed bugs, and only a bit of dust in the corners.

Cons:
1. The price was too much, even with military discount, for the quality of the hotel. It really shouldn't be that much but considering there are only a few hotels in Surfside, they can charge what they please.
2. The first floor room, specifically 116, was very funky. We walked in and the a/c was on full blast in an attempt to keep the moisture down.. It didn't really help. There was rust on the vents and the a/c from the moisture.

Over all I would not stay here again, unless it was a second floor room. I wouldn't recommend anyone staying here unless they have fixed the smell/moisture problems in the first floor.

Room Tip: Request a second floor room. I cannot stress this enough.

As usual we chose comfort inn as our hotel because we like the brand. This hotel lived up to the comfort inn brand name and had a really nice outside pool to boot. The variety of breakfast was disappointing but acceptable. Staff were non intrusive and accommodating when asked. The location is great with restaurants and shops all around, close to myrtle beach and surfside beach as well as other beaches. The cost was a little higher than we would have liked and hopefully we will get a better rate the next time around. Would definitely stay here again

We stayed here to visit our granddaughter for two nights and it was very enjoyable. The room was nice and clean,although it could be updated in the near future. It was very quiet and relaxing and had a nice pool although we never got in to see. The breakfast was enjoyable although the breakfast area was very small. Dale, who worked the front desk was very nice and answered any questions we had. We enjoyed our conversations with him. Overall, I would say that this hotel is one I would stay at again.

We used this hotel as a one night top before we were able to get into our rental the next day...the hotel is in a great location- very close to both surfside and garden city, and it's one of the few nightly rentals in the area. That being said its proxy for what you get. Anywhere else this hotel would be priced at half a Benjamin, instead it's a Benjamin and a Jackson. It's dated...mildew on wallpaper, very drab and basic rooms...this place is in extreme need of a complete overhaul. I will say they appeared to have a nice pool and the breakfast seemed nice although we passed due to time constraints. If this building would do some renicating, I know without a doubt the would be viable for years to come, albeit in their current status it truly gives me reason to pause...

Just came home from a 7 day vacation at Surfside Beach. We enjoyed our stay at the Comfort Inn in Surfside Beach. Just a short drive to the ocean front. The free breakfast had a nice selection of food to choice from. The maids were very friendly and did a good job. Tamera, Dale and Teresa at the front desk were super nice and helped answer any questions I had. Looking forward to visiting this hotel again next year.

Room Tip: If you are handicap, get a room on the first floor. Does not have an elevator.

My husband and I decided to go to the beach a day early, we already had reservations for Mrytle Beach for 5 nights somewhere else. The front desk staff was nice but the room had an awful musty smell. We had to keep the air conditioner on even though I was cold so the smell wouldn't seem so bad. The room was on the 1st floor. I am guessing that the 1st floor rooms have gotten water in them because of all the rain.
We would have asked for another room but by the time we got ourselves ready to go out, The door on the outside of the hotel said they had no vacancies. SInce it was only for one night we did not complain. We could not have stayed more than one night in that room. Very over powering! I would think that housekeeping would be aware of the smell in this room and this room should not have been given out.
The room itself would have been fine if it weren't for the bad smell of the rug, and probably walls. I am guessing the other floors did not have this problem.
May try it again but would only make reservations if they let you pick a floor to stay on.

Room Tip: If you are going to stay here, I would ask for a room above the 1st floor.

The managers would not assist with re scheduling reservations. Asked personal questions and charged us fees that should not have been charged. Rooms are average but service and management dealings are not worth the reasonable price. Don't stay here!
