Very convenient location, Adalyn and Aryan the front desk was so nice and pleasant. I didn’t mind the grab and go breakfast I felt safe and sanitary with that form of breakfast. they also give you personal hand sanitizer when checking in which made me feel like they took regulation an guideline serious. I had no disturbances during my sleep on the 3rd floor, my stay was over all okay and will recommend this location for anyone needing a convenient stay in the downtown area of Kalamazoo for a better rate than the new Hilton hotel and the Radisson. The work I had to do was just around the corner I could even walk and enjoy the Art show in passing on the Kalamazoo Mall.

Lobby is filthy, not been swept in weeks, stairway full of debris and room carpets are not any better. I always liked comfort inn but will not be back. Wife said lobby rest room was digusting. Sheets were clean but room was dingy and musty.

We stay at the Kalamazoo Comfort Inn every March when we come to K-Zoo for a Rotary function. We always feel welcome. The service is friendly and the room is clean and up to date. This year we had to leave early as the meeting was cancelled half way through, and the process was quick and easy. We will be back next year.

The closet door came off the hinges and fell on me. The toilet backed up the first time I used it. Poor lighting so forget about getting make-up straight. The breakfast is abysmal. White bread, instant eggs, unidentified dry cereal, sugared instant oatmeal, sugared yogurt, no fruit--nothing healthy whatsoever. Coffee maker and coffee insert did not match. No room coffee! I was assured that Uber or taxi would pick me up for early airport shuttle, but there were no Ubers, no taxis, no shuttles. I had to call a colleague at 4 am to take me. Blase and disinterested morning desk clerk.
