    A/C was not functioning in a number of 2nd floor rooms and could not be fixed - we were at least able to swap rooms but this meant waiting first for the engineer and then moving our luggage to another floor losing significant time we'd planned for sight seeing. The wifi connection was very spotty - essentially unusable. Although the hotel is downtown, I would not recommend especially to solo female travelers to go out in the immediate vicinity of the hotel after dark. For the quality of the amenities and state of the rooms this is very overpriced compared with other downtown hotels.

  • 5.0

    Close to river, downtown big pluses

    Holy cow, hot as hell in the hallways And no elevator, what's up with that

  • 5.0

    The rooms were clean and cool. The breakfast attendant was pleasant. The location was great.

    There was no air conditioning in any of the common areas. It was 90 degrees outside and inside. No mention of the lack of air conditioning was made on their website, nor by the staff at the hotel. No mention at all. It was unbelievably unpleasant. Everyone was sweating profusely. If I were the owner of the hotel, out of courtesy to my guests, I would have made them aware on my website, that the A/C was not working. At the hotel, I would have displayed a sign, apologizing for the conditions, letting guests know it was being worked on. I would have placed bins of complimentary, chilled, bottled water, in the common areas, for my guests. Pool hours would be extended. And, I certainly would have reduced my rates, temporarily, until the AC was in full service. My staff would have been trained to professionally address and communicate regarding the issue instead of totally avoiding it, as if the problem did not exist. I understand bad circumstances happen. I have owned a business. I get it! BUT, what I DO NOT understand, is an owner, TOTALLY ignoring his guests satisfaction, and still charging full price.This was handled very poorly. I will not be staying at this particular Comfort Inn, again.

    The lady who checked us in, Anita was extremely helpful and pleasant. The room was clean. The pool was great. Windows kept out all but the loudest noise (train whistles). The Susquehanna river was just behind the hotel and a beautiful view. We loved the train bridges.

    The breakfast room was so HOT, you couldn't enjoy the food. The room was small for 4 (2 double beds took up most of the room), and no table.

  • 7.4

    Very clean

    Closed the pool for rain

  • 7.4

    Nice staff, friendly and did a great job.

    NO air in the hall ways. No elevator. Pool closed at 8:00 PM WHY so early?

  • 7.8

    We liked the fluffy pillows. We liked the closeness to the river.

    You need an exhaust fan in the bathroom.

  • 4.2

    The view was nice

    No elevator and staff no friendly plus reward program not accommadating

  • 9.6

    The breakfast was very good for the price. The room, bed and bath were good also.

    I had to get new entry cards twice in four days. Would have liked a list of accessible restaurants and malls.

  • 4.2

    The staff was friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast was good.

    Their website didn't mention the fact that there was not central air in the building. I was there during 3 hot days in July and the hotel was ridiculously hot. The hallways, lobby, and eating area were extremely uncomfortable. I stayed for 3 nights and had to change rooms twice during that time. I had to change rooms the first time due to a terrible musty odor in the first room. The smell was unbearable. The second time I had to change rooms because the individual air conditioning unit in the room stopped working. I was extremely disappointed. The hotel needed many, many updates. The staff was friendly and when questioned about the conditions at the hotel, they each had some not so very nice things to say about the owner of the hotel.

  • 8.2

    + surprisingly "extensive" breakfast + parking + flexible check-in / check-out times

    - not new in general - the AC smelled funny

  • 10.0

    I was glad to take my dogs with me, and having the appliances made it easier.

    The air conditioning throughout the motel was not working properly.Staff had fans in diningroom,but it was still hot.

  • 8.2

    The front desk staff in particular were very friendly and helpful. The room staff was also very polite and efficient.

    The air conditioning in the pubic areas was completely missing. After showering in the morning and going to breakfast you simply perspired so much you felt like you needed to return to your room for another shower.

  • 10.0


  • 6.6

    Service staff was very nice.

    No air conditioning in hallways or lobby. They had fans set up in halls and breakfast area but you could see people sweating. Also has to replace our room key over 8 times because it wouldn't work when we returned to the room.
