"Awful don’t bother."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This place is filthy. There was absolutely no extra cleaning done. Awful smell throughout the halls. The beds are rock hard. The light switches were so gross I didn’t even want to touch them. Highly disappointed because I usually love the Comfort Inn.

"Check hidden fees."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Convenient to I95, hence, very noisy at night. When we checked in, I told them we had a pet. On line the cost was $25 but when we arrived, we were told $50! Limited area to walk the dog. Bagged breakfast was suppose to be provided, we didn’t see any. I know these are hard times for everyone and I truly appreciate the hospitality professional stay open for us who are traveling home, but a little kindness goes a long way. Stay safe.
