“Perfectly Fine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We stayed here for one night whilst travelling from Atlanta to New Orleans. It was pretty much as expected, with a spacious, clean room, free Wifi and breakfast, plus free Cookies which were nice! I guess it's just a bit dated, but overall good value for money.

We requested a quiet room as we were travelling with a toddler, so they kindly put is in one at the end of the corridor.

It's a fine stopover and probably would stay here again (although I very much doubt I'll be in that area ever again!)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Our room was very clean and all of the common areas were as well. They did a great job on a very busy weekend - 4th of July and fully booked - of keeping everything just as it should be. The staff was very polite and efficient. The breakfast was tasty, varied, and well attended to. I appreciated having a fresh fruit salad each morning. The comforter is heavy, but they also provide a lighter weight blanket if you'd prefer that.

My husband and I stayed here for a short getaway vacation. The room was large and clean. For what we paid, it was a nice hotel. There were some others around us that didn't stack up. The staff was very friendly, and the breakfast was pretty good. The only complaint I have is that the comforter was awful. It weighed about 5 pounds and was so heavy I could barely pull it up at night. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay.

Hi DKB09,
Thank you for taking the time to send a review from your recent visit.
Guest comments are always appreciated and welcomed. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our friendly staff and great breakfast.
Sorry to hear you did not like the weight of the comforter. That is a mixed review issue from a few guests.

There are a lot of ants, Bed is rocking.
It's too long corridor to walk.
Breakfast is a normal.
You would go to the market place and restaurants nearby.

Stayed one night passing through town on Spring Break. The Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Montgomery East was a decent stop in the area. Originally we had a King bed with a single pull out couch, but since we were with our two kids, we transferred to a room with two double beds. It was not a big deal to make the switch, so not a problem.

We were pretty exhausted from being on the road all day, so we didn't do much but sleep here. The room was good with comfortable beds/pillows and was clean.

The free breakfast in the lobby was good with a nice selection.

Stayed here passing thru from Florida to Ohio. This location is a little out of the way, although we had plenty of time. I had reserved it a day earlier b/c it was fairly inexpensive (about $90) compared to some others. Country Inn & Suites a usually pretty nice, but this one was a little subpar to the norm. Check-in was easy and the staff very nice. The room was large and comfy, but had an odd smell to it, although not from smoking. After being in the room for awhile you didn't notice, but if you left and came back, you could smell it again. It also seems to have very thin walls, as we could here people in adjoining rooms (next to,above us,hallway) all night long. Breakfast was adequate - the usual. Not sure I would stay here again, although not awful. They did have a nice pool that my wife used.

I stay at this hotel as a lay over during a road trip. The hotel is nice and clean and appears nice from the outside. The desk clerk who checked me in was exceptional and even through I was tired, she managed to make me smile and was most helpful. The very pleasant attitude was most appreciated. All was well until 6 am the next morning when the cleaning staff decided to wake everyone up with loud music and talking. This was the first hotel I have ever stayed in that the staff decided when everyone should wake up, especially on a Saturday morning. Trying to check out was another disappointing experience and it took over 15 minutes with no one else in line but me, for them to figure out how I could get a receipt for my stay. The hotel management, in their defense, did contact me and let me know that the concerns that troubled me would be addressed with the staff. That was great but it did nothing to help my disturbed sleep and my late start on my continued road trip.
