“Nice for the price”
Reviewed 10 September 2011

There was a huge banner outside as I drove up proclaiming "Recently Remodeled!" That always makes me a bit nervous, but they did a pretty good job with this remodel. I wasn't expecting a whole lot for a $62.00 room, but it was better than I expected. Quite clean, the area was quiet, the rooms are far enough off the highway that road noise didn't bother me. They have a nice big TV, and a lovely indoor pool and hot tub for relaxing away those driving kinks. They're right next to one restaurant and across the street from another - very convenient.

We booked a room over the phone while on a long trip. We had actually tried the Hampton Inn up the road first, but they were fully booked. So, for the same price, we assumed we'd be getting a comparable room at Comfort Inn. Like another reviewer mentioned, they advertise " remodeled rooms!" but aside from a newer looking sink, it looked pretty dated. It was clean, but I felt SO snowed for the price we were paying. In any Cade we were tired, the kids went swimming, we'd eat it for a good sleep. We arrived around 8pm and the room was stifling. So with the a/c on max and a fan thru put in there to help circulation (it was a suite but only had one small a/c unit), we thought we could handle it by bedtime. We are from Texas, so we know it gets hot, but that room stayed rather warm. We tucked the kids in, and just hoped it would hey better. But they could not sleep and it was so hot on their side we felt like we just couldn't stay. So we politely informed the front desk of our situation, told them we just couldn't stay. They politely apologized and said we wouldn't be charged for the room. We had to drive two mire hours to get to another hotel and paid the sane price for about ten times nicer room that was COOL. It's not over! So, it turned out Comfort Inn was just being polite and DID charge us for the room. After calling to complain, they said it was obvious we were just trying to use the place for a couple of hours at their expense. If we were those kind if people we sure would have picked a place that wad actually comfortable! I am still amazed at their passive aggressive audacity!!!!

When our Housekeeper went to strip the room the next morning...the whole room & its amenities had been used from the beds to the bathroom area. If you had checked in, unpacked, sat down in your room and figured out the room was not up to YOUR standards within the first 20-30 minutes of being in the room, we would fully understand & would have not charged your account...But the AUDACITY of you having the expectation of not getting charged for using all of our services & amenities is LUDACRIS. All rooms have been Remodeled with New Carpet, Re-Painted & Re-Textured Walls & Re-Grouted Bathroom tiles. We will have new 32 inch Flat Screen TV's by the Fall Season of 2011. We serve FREE HOT BREAKFAST 6-9AM. We have an INDOOR POOL, HOT TUB & SUANA, which is open 365 days a year...ALL OUTDOOR POOLS IN CHILDRESS ARE CLOSED ...BUT OUR INDOOR POOL IS ALLOWED TO STAY OPEN. We don't have the same Room Rates as Hampton Inn...Actually, our Room Rates are Significantly Lower than Hampton Inn. Unlike other Hotels in the area, The Comfort Inn Childress turns on all A/C's units in our rooms by 3PM, so our guests will arrive to a comfortable room. According to Choice Hotel Standards our A/C unit for the 3 Bed Suite is sufficient for the square footage of the room. What is not required by Choice Hotels is the extra oscillating fan The Comfort Inn Childress has put in our Suites for extra air circulation. You & your family fully used our services & amenities...after 3 hours of staying at our Property & using our amenities you say the room is not cool enough...You are obliged to pay for the room & any of its amenities that have been used during your stay.

Sincerely, Property Manager (D. Patel)

We stayed one night here and the remodeled room was very spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable. This is the first time I've written a review for any property but I felt that for a Comfort Inn or comparable priced motel that this was above and beyond the best we've stayed at. The breakfast was also a nice selection. Will recommend to anyone I know driving through Texas.

We chose Comfort Inn after a long drive and it is conveniently located but the sign that flashes 'newly renovated rooms' seems a push - I can't imagine what they looked like before! Although not unclean I was woken by a cockroach falling onto my arm which didn't help in getting a restful sleep. There was also a disturbance outside in the carpark which sounded like arguing (shouting and screaming) and again this caused us to be woken. The extra lock on the door was broken as well so we made sure to take our valuables with us at all times. We have stayed in several motels on our roadtrip and this was one of the worst. Look elsewhere!

Dear Guest, we apologize for any issues you had during your stay with us. We have remodeled our rooms to give our guests a fresh & new comfortable feel & we regret that our rooms did not give you a 100% satisfaction feeling. We also have pest control come once a month to spray a non-toxic pest repellent in all of our rooms & outside property...having a bug disturb your sleep is very unfortunate & rare, we would like to apologize for the disturbance during your sleep. We also have 24 hour front desk service and our 11pm - 7am front desk clerk walks the property at night to keep the parking lot quiet and free of disturbances...we regret that the loud talking outside also disturbed your sleep. And the broken security locked was fixed as well and thank you for letting us know about the broken security lock when you checked out. The Comfort Inn Childress has not only revamped the rooms for our guests but we have also hired a brand new Front Desk Staff as of May 16th, 2011 to provide our guests with the accommodation & hospitality they deserve. We provide a Safe, Secure & Comfortable place to stay...and we will do whatever it takes to accommodate our guests. We thank you for your comments, and next time you are in Childress, TX...come stay with us and we will treat you like family as we do with all of our guests. Sincerely, D. Patel (General Manager @ Comfort Inn Childress)

We were given one of the remodeled rooms which was clean and nice. Everything was new. There is a little road noise from the main street but not a real problem. We did not check out the pool or sauna because it was late.

The Childress Comfort Inn does most everything right. The place is showing its age, but the room was clean and well-maintained. The A/C system was loud and the temperature varied quite a bit during the night. The exterior walls are thin, and we knew exactly when other travelers drove up. But we didn't hear any noise from the adjoining rooms. The breakfast room is pleasant and well stocked, but the choice are somewhat limited compared to other hotels. The desk clerks were both very pleasant. One complaint: Choice Hotels have terrible pillows. We stayed in four of them on this trip, and all of them had the same pillows. Bring your own if you can.

This is a motel in which we have stopped for the night every Summer, for the last few years, usually twice per Summer. Their staff has always been very friendly and our daughter likes their indoor pool. We appreciate their pet acceptance policy. They have a good breakfast, provided, and the motel is also located within walking distance of all sorts of restaurants, including a Kettle, open 24 hours. It is not the newest and flashiest of motels, but it is a basic, reliable place to stay.
