Very friendly staff, easy check in and the room was clean. Didn't feel like getting out of bed in the morning - was very comfortable - had a good sleep. The only thing wrong was how to get to the place, very confusing on which road to take to it.

On the road heading north and needed a comfortable place to stay while on the road and the Comfort Inn fit the bill. Clean rooms and hot breakfast. The service road that leads to the inn is under construction so your GPS may not easily get you there. But just keep your eye on the Comfort Inn sign and stay...

Lots of reasons to book this Comfort Inn. Convenient location on I-35, reasonably priced, allows pets for a one-time $25 fee (not per night) if staying multiple nights, and a plethora of continental breakfast options. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Tiny outlet mall across the parking lot.

Property is very clean and neat.. though staff does not have consideration for exstended stay guest, weather 1 nite or 3 monthes don't expect any better consideration, some staff members are rude, and will treat you like a 5 yr old child if you stay to long and think your feeling comfy

Friendly staff, very good breakfast and clean rooms and facilities. Close to the interstate and a short drive into town. There were three wedding parties staying at the hotel and all went well with the generally young crowd.

The staff are all friendly and helpful. The breakfast is as good as you will find at any motel in the midwest. There is sausage and gravy,, big and small waffles, eggs, sausage, bacon, cereal, hard boiled eggs, pastries, orange juice and coffee. The pool was getting redone, so by the last week of Septmeber 2016 it should be like...

This hotel is very nice. It is quite clean and the ladies that checked us in were friendly and professional. We are a family of four, with a teenager and an almost teenager and we are not at all cramped in a double queen room. I will stay here again when I'm in the area.

The staff at the Comfort Inn in Story City is amazing. We have had our retreat there for 3 years now and we have only had the best service from the staff. They strive to be the best and everything they do shows it. I will recommend this location to everyone I meet. They are truely the best.

We have an yearly quilt retreat here. The staff and manager work really hard to make sure that we have a wonderful time. They also do an excellent job safe guarding our equipment. Roy came in several times to make sure that we had everything we needed. Nice touch that the rooms have coffee makers, fridges and microwaves. I'll be...

I stayed there for 2 nights and did activities in their conference room for 3 days. The room was clean and my bed was comfy. There were four different pillows on my bed with different degrees of firmness so I could choose the one to my liking! The comforter was heavenly with its soft billowy texture. I felt like I...
