"Its a simple Hotel and works for what you need it for."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
yes can use some updates, but it served us for our purpose for our UB Parent Weekend. Breakfast is simple but grateful we got something. Close to where we had to be and wanted to go. The only thing I noticed when sitting outside at the tables people watching is most people don't care how they park (over the lines) or they drive like an ass through the hotel parking lots! Wish they can somehow get those people with the cameras they have there to put people in their place.. These are adults by the way, not kids as you would expect driving like a douche.

I paid $230 for a room that had yellow stains all over the sheets. The hotel looks rundown.

"Stay on 8.20."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Adequate stay. Room may have been sanitized, but not thoroughly checked. Items left by past guest in drawers. Random stickers on wall in bathroom and main room (tags from clothing?) And electrical outlet in bathroom not working. No one at front desk for about 20 minutes or so upon checking and about 8 people waiting. We understand these are trying times. Otherwise it was comfortable.

"Black Mold, Dirty Bathroom, Don’t Stay Here."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We checked in on August 7, 2021. When we went upstairs to check out first room we were issued, we found dirty towels and sheets on the floor. We went back downstairs and let them know and was given another room. It appeared as if it had been cleaned but when I went to take a shower there was black mold around the tub and a big dirt ring in the bathtub. When I tried to dry off the “clean” towel had dirt on it. When I checked out, I let the front desk know about the condition of the room, she was unconcerned and didn’t even offer a receipt or an apology. When you pay about $300 a night you should expect a decent, clean room. This was neither.

"Worth the money but.."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
It was a good cheap room but the hotel is in need of an upgrade. They are replacing the rugs and I would rate them "average" once they do so. The room was clean and tidy.

"Honest Review"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The non smoking room significantly smelled like smoke. There was melted chocolate all over the TV remote and also over the blue decorative bed spread on the end when I got there. Unfortunately I wasn’t thrilled with the cleanliness of the room. But the stay was okay otherwise. The hotel was quiet and the breakfast was decent.

"Excellent"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The staff was so friendly. Upon arrival after driving for 8 hours we were greeted by Noelle. Exhausted and hungry she was a true gem. Accommodating our family and our arrival was just in time for breakfast. Noelle’s recommendations of sites to see after our tour at UB made our trip even that much better. Thank you Noelle and staff. If our daughter decides to attend UB we will definitely be back at the comfort inn. Tamara Takacs.
