I have stayed in many Comfort Inns and this one is the usual Comfort Inn level. But much more expensive than others in the same catagory. It was previously a Howard Johnson. Its not worth the $110 + as I have paid far less at Comfort Inns with much better rooms.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

The Comfort Inn is a newly renamed and refurbished Howard Johnson's. The latter name brand was quite good, but the new identity has taken its name seriously. This is a wonderfully comfortable motel--the beds are great, the linens and towels clean and fluffy, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and it is in a great location (equidistant from Humboldt...

Reservations were lost for several family members arriving for a funeral. The prices were inflated $30-45 per night over the comparables accross the street. This inn does not live up to my expectations from staying at other Comfort Inns accross the Pacific Northwest. Breakfast area is very small. I had asked if it would be an area we could use...

The rooms are large with an entrance area (unlike most motels), and there is even an area to lounge with a comfy chair and desk and chair. Linens were crisp and fresh and beds/mattresses/pillows like new! Very quiet and private rooms with nice carpeted passage outside. Has a pool, spa and business area. Staff is very nice, check in quick...

Nice people, very clean, quiet area! Stayed 4 nights. Would most definitely stay here again. Wifi worked great. Nice breakfast area. Microwave and small refrigerator in room. Blow dryer and an iron. Everything you could need. Only thing that could improve is the coffee.

This is the first time I have checked out of a hotel before our stay was up; in fact, first thing the next morning. The biggest problem was cleanliness. The room was filthy. I felt like I didn't want to even be in the room, must less sleep on the bed. Carpet stains, dust, crumbs all over the microwave/fridge area....

Stayed two nights recently. Room Decent. Breakfast included. Breakfast is the minimum that can be called a breakfast; No yogurt; banana was the only fruit. Bed was comfortable however the pillows were the usual hotel pillows that provide no actual support - they're all air. Very UNcomfortable. Shower and bathroom fine. The staff has been very nice, helpful, friendly. Has...
