Verified Reviews of Comfort Inn & Suites Essa

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very Accommodating"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Comfort Inn Essa was clean, quiet and in a great location for our soccer tournament. We needed an extra cot in our room for one extra guest and it was easily accommodated. We also requested a meeting room for Saturday night and had a lovely room to gather in. Breakfast was nothing too special, lots of choices and the fresh fruit and yogurts were welcome. The coffee was excellent!

22-Jul-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Thu Jul 17 to Sun Jul 20 2014 at a C$85.49 group rate.
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Although we appreciate the fact that we were able to book a suite for the price of a regular room, we were disappointed in the features of a so called suite. We have friends that stayed in a suite directly below us. It was laid out similar if not identical to ours. Theirs however had a microwave (we didn't), a fireplace(we didn't), a mini fridge that actually kept food cold (Ours barely cooled things down). The heat/ac units had deflectors on them in the lower suite and ours didn't which with the heat on, kept blowing the curtains around and banging the pull handles through out the night.The best part of the weekend was the breakfast in the am and the proximity to restaurants near by. When I asked about the microwave, which I found out on the second night upon a visit to the lower suite, I was told "Oh, maybe it was removed for some reason, I will ask about it. I am not the one who looks after the room layout" This was your front desk clerk. She did not get back to me on this. If someone asks me to refer your hotel in the future I will hesitate but give you a 2 out of 5 rating.
