Adequate for the price.
Older motel in need of some updates. Had a bit of a rundown feel to it. Room was clean and spacious. Was nice that the bedroom had its own door. Info said office open until 9pm but we got there at 7pm and they were closed and we had to call to get our room. Also unaware that there was no elevator and we were upstairs and would have appreciated an elevator. No restaurant available although there was one off the lobby but looked permanently closed.

not again, they have guns!
for the price it should have been a marriott hotel. thank you for the stock refrigerator and hot water which set off the fire alarm. I really enjoyed the gun show after hours and debauchery. I forgot comfort inn is more of motel on a budget.
