The hotel has no restaurant on the premises, only a breakfast room off the lobby for their
"deluxe continental breakfast," included in all room rates, but for other meals, several fast-food establishments and other hotels’ restaurants are nearby on the same road. This new hotel offers whirlpool rooms, an indoor heated pool, and fitness center. The
pool was full when we arrived, and the desk clerk explained, "We’re hosting a 12-year-old’s birthday party. It’s usually not this noisy here." In our rooms, we could
still hear the adolescents in the hallway until we turned on the television, which
successfully blocked out all further commotion until we were ready to leave for our play.
Our room was large and had a coffee pot, ironing board, and hair dryer. We had booked
online the configuration with two double beds because it has a table and two chairs. Next
time, we opted for a queen room and got a smaller space with desk and only one comfy
armchair, no table. We prefer the roomy table, where we can spread out our visitors’
literature, maps, and newspaper.
Everything was reasonably clean, and we had only 1 serious complaint: lighting was
totally insufficient for anyone over 50, or perhaps anyone, period. Even after I took the two burnt-out bulbs in our room to front desk and got replacements, we weren’t comfortable reading our literature! After two stays at two Comfort Inns, I’m assuming this problem runs throughout the chain. All bulbs in our rooms were 60 watts--I checked--never adequate for reading for anyone of any age!
When we returned late, all was quiet again. Early next morning, we checked out the
fitness room with only three machines: stepper, cycle, and treadmill. On one side of the
machines, the small room had a television, and on the other side, a wall of windows
overlooked the pool. The area had been cleaned after the would-be teens, and we
enjoyed a swim.
Breakfast emphasized sweets. The cheerful room off the lobby was pleasant, and coffee
was always on. In spite of my outrage over lighting, we’ll stay here again. (I’ll take my desk lamp!) Anyone booking through SmarterLiving can get a room here for $52. Where else can one find a brand-new room with indoor pool and breakfast for that price?
