Comfort Inn Shady Grove gets updated branding and signage in Rockville (Photos)
The Comfort Inn at 16216 Frederick Road has updated branding and new signage. Gone is the old sun-and-waves logo. In its place is a minimalist "C" turned at an angle. I like this retro-style building. Although it's not apparent from the outside, the property did have a major interior renovation in the last three years, and is quite modern on the inside.
One plus of staying at this hotel - besides the convenient distance to Checkers, Red Lobster, Bowlmor and Burger King - is that parent company Choice Hotels is located just down the road, so you know the service and cleanliness are going to be carefully monitored by headquarters. From a nostalgia standpoint, I personally still prefer the old Comfort Inn logo - although it could hardly compete with the old Quality Inn logo, whose fonts and animation were only matched by the famous Holiday Inn signs that once lined America's highways.
