The Good
Most reviewers of this hotel agreed that the rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and that the front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

Many guests complimented the cleanliness of their room and hotel common areas. One guest found the curved shower rod and bathroom night light to be value added features. Several reviewers also noted that the beds were comfortable.

The staff at this hotel also received many compliments from reviewers. Guests described the front desk agents as helpful and the breakfast staff as friendly. A couple guests found the breakfast well stocked and the dining area clean and tidy. Another guest had this to say about his service experience,"We had special needs and these were looked after in the preparation for our arrival and dealt with promptly on our arrival. The staff anticipated other things that may help our stay and volunteered to go that extra mile to make sure that we were taken care of very well."

One business traveller said that he has been frequenting this location for eighteen years and has found consistently friendly service and clean rooms.

Other positive reviews for this hotel included its close proximity to fast food chains and restaurants, including a Tim Horton's across the street. Reviewers also mentioned that the price was reasonable and that the wireless Internet was a value added feature. 

The Bad
There were few negative reviews for this hotel, and of those reviews, some were several years old. Also, most guest complaints were not repeated among reviews.

One guest found the room and the bathroom too small for her family of four. This same guest also mentioned limited seating in the breakfast dining area.

A couple reviewers suggested that guests request ground level units because there is no elevator at this hotel and ground floor units have exterior sliding doors that lead directly into the rooms (drive-up units).

One of the older reviews mentioned a problem with a smoking room. The guest complained of a strong cigarette smoke odour and yellow ceilings. Another guest review, that was a few years old, described the hotel as appearing run-down and in need of upgrades. This same guest also found the bed linens too thin.
TripAdvisor.com ranked this hotel as #4 out of 8 properties in Chatham, from 15 reviews.

CanadianHotelGuide,com gave this hotel a score of 7.1 out of 10, based on 22 reviews.

MyTravelGuide.com gave this hotel an average score of  9.0 out of 10, from 5 guest reviews.

Verified by a Front Desk Agent: Pets stay for free, except when a local pet show is happening, at those times guests are subject to a $50 damage deposit.

"Comfort Inn ---Chatham, Ontario"
"The staff were very courteous. The hotel is clean and located in an excellent part of the city i.e. near highway travel but close enough to downtown to be able to take a taxi. It would be nice to have more outlets in the room."

Joe from Dayton, OH US rated Comfort Inn Chatham City 9 out of 10 on November 11, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Room was clean and neat. My wife and I especially liked the curved shower rod, which made more room in the shower, and the night light, which helped when getting up at night. Your motel is the first one we have seen that had these two items. Very good planning on someones part. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The continental breakfast could be improved, although the lady that took care of the eating area was very, very good and a hard worker. All in all, we had a nice stay, and we do not like staying in motels!!!"

"Being a Quebec resident it is difficult to pinpoint the attraction of Ontario except that if you say (pretty warm today eh?) Everyone actually responds with a cheerful response. Anyway;I (as always ) find the hospitality of locals an indicator of the area, and your staff there couldn't have been more tolerant, seeing I had to cancel one day and rearrange the next. I used to go to Florida often and the hotels were usualy 19 bucks a nite , but that was 18 years ago-- Red Roof etc. Guess things have changed eh? Chatham's people at your chain are a credit to you."

Sheryl from Sudbury, ON CA rated Comfort Inn Chatham City 7 out of 10 on June 29, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"I was not disappointed with the hotel... the room was very clean and comfortable. I was not impressed though with the lack of a pool (they said no pool but they give out passes for the YMCA). Also, when I booked the room I was given a certain rate and then when I was checking in, they charged me an extra $10 per night and they said the price increased as they had a fridge and microwave in the room. I feel this was not right and I was very upset and decided that because of this, I would look somewhere else to stay at next time and I do travel enough. I think that when you quote a price, that price should not change on a whim..."

William from Carleton Place, ON CA rated Comfort Inn Chatham City 3 out of 10 on May 12, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Our tap in the bathroom only gave out HOT water! We asked to have maintenance look after it and we are not sure if they did since the problem did not seem to be rectified. Our room was at the top of the stairs on the second floor just above the lobby. The night staff seemed to be having a party because there was loud talking and laughing well into the night. We were kept awake with their merriment. We did not partake in the continental breakfast because we found eating breakfast at the local Tim Horton's more adequate. Trying to find something to watch on TV was futile at best. You may consider spending a few extra dollars to get a better cable package. Considering the Travel Lodge is right next door with a hot breakfast included plus microwaves and fridges in all rooms it may to your advantage to reconsider your amenities."

"I had requested a room with two double beds. When we arrived at the hotel, we had been booked for one queen size bed in spite of the confirmation sheet stating two beds. We were fortunate and the hotel was able to give us a room as requested."
