Recent guest reviews

Would stay again if ever in the area again. Was close to the places we went to.

Good location away from busy downtown but complimentary shuttle is a huge plus. Hotel staff were wonderful and very helpful.

It was overall a great hotel. Quick check-in, clean room, comfortable bed, breakfast could have been better, but overall excellent.

In town for a meeting, so did not spend much time at the hotel. Things would have been a bit easier if the hotel had a shuttle as did many other hotels in the area.

We were very happy with our stay at this hotel. The staff is very friendly, breakfast was great, loved the coffee always available in the lobby. Definitely recommended.

Very nice staff, very clean hotel overall great stay no complaints!!!!

The room was ok, it was a smoking room and it does not smell like they ever air the rooms out. A little fabreeze would do some good. But overall it wasn't all that bad.

Staff was friendly & helpful. Enjoyed the suite. Breakfast buffet was fantastic. Improper working air conditioning in room was a bummer.

The hotel stay was great.We really enjoyed the stay. I really like when there are mini refrigerators in the rooms especially if you have your own soda's or bottle of waters. You can still keep them cold. Great Amenity. I also love the fact that there are hair dryers in the room also.

Very clean, reasonable price, great breakfast in the morning!

We stayed overnight after traveling for a concert at the arena/convention center next door. Very convenient having it so close! Front desk woman asked if it was our first time to the area, and we said it was. She said she had a perfect room for us, and gave us a nice corner room that was super spacious, with a large bathroom. Very nice! Casino just behind the hotel was a nice play to grab a bite to eat, a quick drink, and hit a few slots.

Met my expectations and then some:) The breakfast bar I would rate as a 5star as well. Great coffee too! And of course walking distance to Horseshoe Casino:)

Hotel close to Highway. Very nice location. Good area to eat in restaurants.

the breakfast was good, staff was really nice and helpful, the room it was nice and clean. It was really nice to have the casino in front of the hotel. It was a safe and nice location.

Casino right across the street. Enjoyed it. Room was what I expect from Comfort Inn.

We were met at the front desk by a very pleasant young man. Gave us directions to several different eating places close by. Room was clean and up to my expectations!! We walked over to one of the Casinos, which we liked. Nice breakfast options. We would definitely stay there again.

We chose this hotel because it had a hot breakfast and a more reasonable price than some other comparable hotels. We weren't disappointed. The only drawback was that we had a little bit of difficulty finding the place but it wasn't that big of a deal. It's right next to Cabelas, Famous Dave's BBQ, and a casino. The pool is a little small but overall we had a great time. They even have a small book lending library which our daughter loved.

Very clean and extremely comfortable! I would highly recomend this hotel to anyone looking for a great value without sacrificing cleanliness and comfort.

Couldn't find street on GPS. Just look for the Casino as it shares a parking lot with it. You need to go up one freeway exit to find restaurant chains. Nice room. Great swimming pool and sauna. Nice breakfast.

Stayed at Country Inn & Suites for the Color Me Rad 5k. The room was very clean and they even had the AC running before we checked in. Hotel staff was friendly. Was surprised that this was the most affordable hotel in the area for that weekend!
