Verified Reviews of Comfort Inn University

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Pleasant Stay"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The staff at the desk was polite and helpful. Breakfast food delightful. Parking lot in the back needs better lighting. The maintenance staff should wear uniforms to identify who they are. I highly recommend this hotel as proximity is wonderful to the Northtowns.

"Hockey Weekend!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The staff at this hotel from the time we got there until we left were very helpful and accommodating. They went over and beyond to make our stay extraordinary. We were a large group and they gave us a room to exercise and to eat our meals together. There was some updating going on and will look awesome I'm sure.
