Review: Comfort Inn of Lewiston ID

2/28/11
Comfort Inn
2128 Eighth Avenue
Lewiston, Idaho 83501

I humbly suggest that Lewiston, Idaho is not the best place to find a hotel. We looked at the $45 hotel by the river which was kind of creepy. Then we drove down the street to the $69 hotel which stank of curry outside. So we decided to just give in, and for our last night go to a decent hotel. We drove up the hill to a less seedy-looking area and chose the Comfort Inn at $99 (but I talked him down to $84 because I can). There was also a $10 pet fee, which with taxes brought the stay to over $100. It would be worth it, right?

We looked at the first room which smelled like cat urine, so we went back to the desk and asked for another, which also smelled. Exhausted and frustrated, we decided the second room didn’t stink as much as the first one and we’d settle for it. I got the Febreeze out of the car and sprayed the hell out of the room, including the air conditioner filter, carpeting, bedspread, etc. We even opened the window, which helped until the wind shifted, bringing the nearby paper mill’s stench into the room. So much for that. At least there were no bed bugs and the internet worked.

The room was large and pretty clean, other than the mildew where the tub met the shower wall. I was going to complain but what were they going to do about it? Move us to yet another stinky room? Forget it. We’d be home tomorrow and we’d shower then. It was just very disappointing for the last night of a 45 day road trip. Home sweet home, here we come.
