The last time my wife and I stayed at the Comfort Inn, which was 5 years ago, I reviewed the hotel and said we probably wouldn't stay here again. Well, after reading recent reviews we decided to give the place another chance. Am I glad we did. We stayed 2 nights. Since our last visit, the hotel has changed ownership. The rooms have been upgraded. The breakfast area has been expanded and improved. But most of all, the attitude of the staff has done a complete 180. Every employee we encountered was friendly and helpful. The hotel is 2 stories but there was no elevator. Parking was plentiful.
Our check in was fast and accurate. Our room was clean and modern looking. The breakfast items were plentiful and always well stocked. The pool was clean. Check out was fast and we were on our way.
The only negative was the WiFi. The signal in the room was so weak that we had to use our devices in the breakfast area. We were told that Choice Hotels will be upgrading the WiFi in all their properties very soon. Hopefully, by our next visit, the WiFi will be better.
On our future railfan visits to Marion, we will be staying at the Comfort Inn.
