Generally I look at those hotel coupon books found at travel centers. I found the Comfort Inn and noticed the banner "Brand New" in the ad. Sounds good to me! I then went to their website, where I found that their price was $2 cheaper. I booked through the Web. From past experience, most of the hotels in the books were located near the major highways. I guess I didn’t question it, as the directions in the book state "I-65 Exit 112." Little did I realize that it was 20 minutes down dark roads to get to this hotel.
It was a typical Comfort Inn, with an indoor pool, exercise room, cable, coffeemaker, hair dryer, and deluxe continental breakfast. I didn’t take advantage of most of these, as I was in and out so quickly. I did use the free high-speed Internet in the room that worked great.
The decor was pretty simple, though a bit unattractive. It looked like it was done without any professional consultant; the curtains didn’t match the stick-on wall border or comforter in different shades of rose and cranberry. The one wall painting didn’t really match either and was hung too high, so that it looked like an afterthought. The furniture looked a bit worn, but there was a dresser and desk. They did have two nice very large pillows, and the bed was okay regarding comfort. The heat worked well.
The floor in the bathroom was extremely sticky and required wearing shoes, though the rest of the bathroom was clean. You received two of the thin towels, one Pantene shampoo/conditioner combo, and two soaps.
The woman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. I indicated in my reservation that I couldn’t walk very far, and she had a close room ready for me when I arrived. She even offered to have her husband bring me a winter coat that didn’t fit her after I mentioned I wasn’t exactly prepared for the 26° weather! I was disappointed, though, that I received my wake-up call an hour early. I am confident that I didn’t make a mistake.
What I learned here is that I really need to look closer before purchasing. This hotel was 7-years-old, which I don’t really consider being brand-new.
There is no view from the room, although the hotel is just 5 minutes from downtown.
