Halfway between Memphis, TN and Chicago, IL. 8 TIME GOLD AWARD WINNER: 1996-2003! Hotel non 100 percent Non-smoking. All Comfort Suites are smoke free. Pool closed until Jan. 10, 2010, for renovations.
clean and friendly, great breakfast
2 connecting rooms each with 2 double beds would be perfect
It had a room available the day before we needed it. Now I know why, and wouldn't stay here again.
Long check in time when we arrived late in the evening. One person on staff with four families trying to check in at the same time. Breakfast food was not kept stocked. A little brought out at a time, that was rapidly consumed by many guests.
VERY clean, very friendly. We hung out in the breakfast dining area at night, ordered pizza and played our instruments. The pool was clean, but hot. Stayed there 3 times in three years, and will come back again.
it was hot in the pool room, but that was the only thing.
Size of room was nice and open feeling
Had mold all over AC heater unit vent. Didn't notice till morning when everyone was coughing and my wife had a bad asthma attack. Just horrible.
In Feb and March of 2009 my husband and I, and several of our family, were in Effingham for a family emergency and then for a funeral. Since we were there for several days, I wanted to have something inexpensive. I wasn't expecting much, having stayed in other Comfort Inns with mixed results, but was I surprised!! This was one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed at and the staff was definitely the warmest, friendliest, and most helpful I have ever experienced, and I travel a lot! Can't reccomend this enough. Also, they are next door to a really great and reasonably priiced restaurant.
Clean, quiet, nice indoor pool, next door to a moderately priced restaurant with decent food. The only thing that could have been better was the breakfast, but I have had far worse. Be aware that the room rate charged by Travel on line was twenty dollars higher that the 'agency' rate.
1. Check in clerk could be friendlier 2. Very good breakfast- eating area could be bigger 3. My one complaint is that they surreptitiously add a $1.00 'security warranty' charge to the bill. If you do an express check out and do not ask, you won't find out that this is allegedly for having a safe in the room and you have to ask to have it removed. It's bad enough that all the taxes are added w/o a hidden charge like this.
Stayed at the hotel on our way to Florida. The hotel was excellent, very clean and inviting. The breakfast was great and the rooms were very clean. The heated pool was great and thoroughly enjoyed by our grandchildren. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to my friends.
This hotel had all the amenities and decor touches of a luxury hotel. The entire staff made us feel very special. We'll be back!
A fabulous hotel. The lounge area was unexpected and mightily useful. The mini-bar featured a fridge, which was great. Bathroom was large and spacious, as was the bedroom.
This hotel is very clean. Staff is very helpful and friendly . Good complimentary breakfast, including eggs, biscuits & gravy, waffles.
