“Better than Nothing”
Reviewed 24 November 2012

Room was ok...large, comfortable bed, brand new, very slick plastic bathtub I fell in, good tv. Totally ignorant desk clerk on the phone with personal calls all night, and when she wasn't, was hanging in the empty bar with her boyfriend eating whataburgers. Empty, because "in observance of Thanksgiving the (free) happy hour is cancelled." Funny, they didn't reduce my bill for what was likely at least a $20 value that is surely part of the rate. Wonder why they didn't cancel breakfast as well? They might as well have, since there were no (powdered) eggs and biscuits available the whole time we were in there. There was plenty to eat and lots of variety, but they are in no hurry to refill the best parts. Oh well, I learned long ago not to expect much from anything or anyone in my former hometown. That alone earns them the maximum score of three stars.

Stayed at this hotel when dropping off son to school. We booked at this hotel because we couldn't find a reasonably priced room closer to TAMU-CC. They are remodeling the hotel and there's still work to be done. Our room was a king size room. Bed OK, small pillows, blanket had a cigarette burn and looked a little ratty. The wall paper was ripped in parts of the wall. Wall paper in the bathroom was starting to rip out. The shower stall and shower head looked new. It is kept very clean and that's what keeps it from being a dump, but once they finish with the renovation it will be a nice little hotel. Lady at check in was very nice. OK for a one night or business stay. Not really for vacationers as it's far from the beaches and attractions.

Comfort Inn & Suites Calallen is an excellent hotel. The service and value of this property is outstanding, Moreover, the property is clean and it has close proximity to restaurants, and house hold retailers ie Walmart etc. Furthermore I would have given the property a five but I opted to give it a four star rating because it is undergoing renervations, mainly to upgrade its rooms and amenities.

Stayed here while visiting family--it was okay but showing it's age. Desk clerks were friendly. Room was relatively clean, good shower. Bathroom mirror showing deterioration along the bottom, tissue box was empty, mattress was a bit flat, tv was an older fatback in a wood cabinet across from the king bed- couldn't really be moved so had to move a chair by the bed to watch tv. Five pillows on the bed was nice. A couple of stains on the carpet and down the back of the aged desk swivel chair. Room had a peculiar smell to it. Noticed it when I walked in and again when I got up in the morning, Comp breakfast was okay--milk, cereal, yogurt, some pastries, breads, toaster, hard-cooked eggs, formed cheese omelets that looked like tacos, sausage links, waffles--chocolate or plain, oatmeal, juice, coffee. To the north are a Mexican restaurant, bbq restaurant, Burger King--all open for breakfast/lunch/supper. Convenience store/gas station on the corner. Across the street is a Papa John's pizza and Chili's-all within walking distance in my opinion. To the west on the other side of the highway is a Walmart, fast food, liquor store, etc. The street in front of the hotel is one way only to the north so you need to go back south on the highway and turn around to come back to this hotel if you drive anywhere unless you know the back street way through the residential neighborhood. I had a room on the front side--could hear trucks on the highway--back side would be quieter. Internet connection on my netbook was easy but I went down to the business center to print out my boarding passes for the plane and the printer was out of color ink and the desk didn't know about replacement cartridges but was going to make a note of it for the manager. Passes printed out well enough I could use my e-ticket number at the airport self serve.

Staff- one exceptionally pleasant person and ne who worked on reception which was miserable and hardly spoke.

Rooms were dated with broken light switches.

Sheets smelt of bleach.

Hotel smelt musty.

Not convent for Corpus Christi. Better hotels are available. Convent for highway 77, which is very close!

The hotel was clean but dated and tired furniture.
