Some of the front desk personal need to be more friendly. There was a chair out front broken told front desk Saturday when my husband almost hit the ground in it and it took the nice gentleman on Sunday to remove it before anyone else could get hurt.

Easy on & off highway.

Pros: Convenient to I40
Cons: Needs a hot tub!
Location: Gas stations & restaurants near by.
Enjoyed being able to watch television, read, etc without trying to sit on the bed which can be very uncomfortable.(couch in room) Convenient to good restaurants

worst hotel ever, Travelocity should refund us

Pros: nothing
Cons: management change, ability for Travelocity to credit card immediately.
We got there at 1:30 a.m.. No desk staff was present and we waited over 5 minutes for a staff member. He tried to load our room key 4 times, and failed 4 times. After 4 trips back to the front desk he tried the master and failed again. We returned to the lobby and listened to him beg his management for assistance. At 2:40 a.m. we were put in another room. Upon checkout Day shift mgr. could not offer us a refund because we booked through Travelocity. Travelocity refund my credit card.

Great hotel - great price!

Pros: Nicely decorated. Soft beds and clean.
Cons: Just a couple minor things in the bathroom, like the rusted pluming under the toilet area and painting trim around door, etc.
Location: Lots of dining options and gas station right off the interstate.
We stopped by on our way home hoping to get a room as we didn't have a reservation. They did much to our luck. We had booked this hotel online for another date at the end of the month previously and was so happy with the accommodations and knew we would have another great nights rest at the end of our trip. We were pleased at how nice, big and inviting the room was. The bed was perfect for it's softness. Everything looked very clean and I am super picky. The gentleman at the front desk was just so nice and when we came back from dinner at the nearby Cracker Barrel he was gone but the other gentleman that was at the desk seemed to be just as nice. The front desk/lounge area was very updated, modern and very appealing. They have also complimentary breakfast, which we did not have as we do not eat breakfast often, but looked like the area was very clean and tidy.

Tournament Stay

Great hotel for the rate. Hotel staff was helpful, room was clean, and breakfast was well worth the money since we had several children with us. Would stay there again.

Great Family Deal

Nice, clean hotel with great staff. Coming off of 12 hours driving with 4 kids ;ages 4 - 13;, it was a relief to arrive at the Hotel. The staff was terriffic in helping us get situated. The Pool and Hot Tub offered all a chance to unwind and burn off some pent-up energy. The suite arrangement allowed all of us to sleep in on room. Comfortable beds and pull-out couch were relaxing. The Continental Breakfast in the morning allowed my crew to fill up before hitting the road again. Actually allowed us to make better time as we were able to delay lunch. As you can tell, I and the family were very pleased with this hotel and will put in on our plans next time we take a trip like this.

Awsome decor

I recently stayed at the Comfort Suites and I was truely impressed by the decor and service of this hotel. I am a big fan of the brand, but this property was extremely impressive! The staff was also very friendly and made us feel at home. I stayed there twice recently, once with my family and once on business and both were great stays. I would recommend this place to anyone!
