We have been visiting the local Moose Festival on and off for about twenty years now. The majority of our stay overs have been with the Northern Comfort motel. This establishment has never let us down. Firstly it is a very clean and affordable place to stay. On Friday the street fair is located downtown a mile away. There are some other nice places to stay in the region however they can be from 5 to 30 miles away. The Northern Comfort aside from it's clean rooms and attention to detail has a lot to offer with a generous sized television with free HBO, fast internet hookup, a compact refrigerator, and microwave. The window AC worked perfectly. Our bed was a single Queen and it was very cozy. Our particular room had a recent renovation of the bath room and this was very well executed. Water pressure and temperature regulation was perfect. The atmosphere is casual with folks sitting in chairs in front of their rooms or gathering together for conversation. On Friday there was an impressive fireworks display down by the ball field that was clearly seen from the Northern Comfort. Very nice to view with no travel required. On Saturday we took a swim in their pool which was spotless and we had it to ourselves. The water temp. was 81 degrees. Our check in and check out was fast and friendly. It is clearly obvious that the management and the family enjoy doing what they do.
My overall opinion having spent about a half dozen stays there over the years is that dollar for dollar one will simply not do better in the area. What I find most impressive is that the Northern Comfort maintains it's roadside Americana feel without sacrificing quality or adding costs. Over the years we have stayed at many other similar places that were at 2, 2 1/2 times the rate without this much character. The mountain view from the far side is superb, but this time we opted for a room facing the road which is very nice as well. I should mention that on check in I requested a specific room, the same one that we stayed in two years before and in spite of the place being booked it was given to us without hesitation. How is that for service? I can't ever see a traveler going wrong with the Northern Comfort Motel.
