Accommodations Review:

There's a reason we've never gone back to the Comfort Inn Maingate.   It was a bit run-down, and not even average in terms of appearance and atmosphere.   We weren't expecting the Grand Floridian...but for your money one does expect a well-kept place to stay.  The bathrooms weren't completely clean (there was nothing major, just mildew and the like) and the furnishings were old and needed replacement.   It wasn't a terrible place, I've certainly stayed in worse motels, but it wasn't somewhere we've been drawn to visit again.

Other Comments:

We stayed at the Comfort Inn Maingate for just one night on the day we arrived in the area in 1993.  Frankly, we considered the motel to be a place with a bed...and it wasn't much more than that.  We got in just after dinner time and checked in.  Then we unloaded just the minimal luggage for the night's stay.   After getting settled we drove into the World and stopped at the Marketplace and Dixie Landings (where we would be staying for the rest of our visit) just to get the flavor and get hyped a bit.  The next morning we checked out, and went over to Dixie Landings to pick up our passes -- and WDW vacation 1993 was afoot! That was the sum total of our experience at the Comfort Inn Maingate.  It served its' intended purpose.
