Comfort Inn, Griffin GA Review

Comfort Inn, 1906 N Express Way, Griffin GA 30223

I stayed 10 days on business with my wife and 2 dogs. The staff is very friendly, and made sure we got the room we wanted (2nd floor, near the stairs, facing away from the highway) at check-in. We forgot an article of clothing behind the bathroom door, and they were very prompt in shipping it back to us.

This property is pet-friendly, but there's a $10 per pet per night fee (with no cap!). I'm not sure an extra $20 per night was worth it. At 10 nights, I spent $200 on pet fees (!!!), and I hardly think the hotel uses that revenue to get the room super clean; they certainly don't invest in a better pet walk or put out Pet Waste Bags. There is not much room to walk your dog on the property, so you have to walk through the adjoining neighborhood. However, this seemed to be the best place in Griffin to stay. 

 We stayed in their largest King room, the one with the full size microwave, fridge, and sink. There is lots of cabinet space, however--aside from a coffee maker--there are NO other kitchen utensils. No plates, no cups, no silverware, nothing. The staff was nice enough to let us take some styrofoam plates and plastic-ware to our room, but some real dishes would've been nice, especially for how long we stayed and since we like to eat in instead of restaurants all the time. 

 The fitness room is fairly sad. The equipment seems to be the cheapest flimsiest stuff they could find, and there was only one power supply for the Bike and Elliptical machine. The mounted TV has a poor viewing angle, so the screen is nearly impossible to see. Good solid wi-fi and internet speeds in the hotel. Easy access to the highway. Our room was clean and had updated decor and furniture for the most part (the desk chair would not stay in the raised position). Good TV channel selection. The breakfast was decent, nothing to write home about, and not alot of vegetarian options. Local liquor laws prevent the sale of liquor on Sundays, in stores and at restaurants, so plan ahead. 

 Slices Pizzeria is pretty good but no delivery. Saki Japanese up the road in Hampton has surprisingly good sushi and good staff. 

 If all Comfort Inns were this updated, I'd probably stay at them more often (we travel 8 months a year), but only if they gave actual silverware/plates and reduced the pet fee to either $10/night or capped it. This place is perfect for a short stay, and is very adequate if you're unfortunate enough to be stuck in Griffin for an extended period of time.
