Enjoyed the staff, breakfast options, and location. Pillows are really soft, if you need a firmer pillow pack the one from home.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. Both times I have been impressed at the front desk who are extremely helpful and have let us into our room early. The Continental breakfast was much more than a cold muffin and yogurt, they had waffles eggs and sausage too. The room was clean and the beds are comfy. Nothing fancy but I felt safe and the views from the window and a block hike up a hill are fabulous.

Biggest waste of money EVER!!!
Area was great, but hearing road construction till 2:00am is ridiculous! Especially not being warned about it. Then we cancelled our stay and moved hotels and the accountant that I worked with said I would be refunded for everything but the one night stay and I was charged 100.00 more than what was my original first night stay.... I called and spoke to the accountant several times and emailed and they blocked me on there email along with the general manager blocking me!! I have never ever been so disappointed. So glad we found a clean, quiet, comfortable hotel in a perfect spot to finish our vacation! I will never be staying at a comfort inn the rest of my life!!!!! Also I have been charged the full price for all 4 days on top of another $358 for something I have no idea why!! Then anothe $25 for who knows what the heck for!!! THE BIGGEST RIP OFF EVER!!!!!
