Comfort Inn, St. Thomas, ON

I had a couple seminars and one-on-ones to conduct last evening and this evening for a client in St. Thomas.  Rather than drive back and forth (400km ~ 4.5 hours each day ...  in the dark heading home), I spent last night at the Comfort Inn.  There are not a lot of hotels to choose from in St. Thomas and the Comfort Inn is the only chain I could find.

The staff at the desk when I checked in and out were friendly.

I got the king bed room with a two-person jacuzzi ($10 extra). I used the jacuzzi last night and was in it for about 1.5 hours ... with bubble bath and my Kobo ereader.  Yes, I love bubble baths!

A continental breakfast was included ... boiled eggs, waffles, scrabbled eggs, sausages, bagels, muffins, fruit, cereal, yogurt, etc.   I had an 8am conference call this morning so grabbed some yogurt and toasted a bagel and took them back to my room.

The breakfast room

There are no restaurants within walking distance as this hotel on the outskirts of town (there are tons of restaurants downtown).  I had brought some microwave popcorn and popped it in the microwave in the breakfast room (it was a couple doors down from my room) instead of supper last night.

Parking is free as it WIFI (it was quick).  The rooms are nothing fancy but my king bed was comfy.  Surprisingly there are no mini fridges or microwave ovens in the rooms (there's room for them).  My room was stuffy and the a/c was noisy so I slept with the window open to get some cool fresh air (I was on the second floor so felt safe enough to do this).

Checkout is 11am but I was able to push it to 1pm if I needed it (I left just before noon).  That was appreciated since I didn't have to be at the client's site 'til later in the afternoon.

I'd stay there again the next time I'm in St. Thomas.
