“Good stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Woman at check in was very helpful. My husband had been sick and we needed to stop. She brought him some hot tea while I was checking him in. She also put us in a room close to the elevator so he wouldn't have to walk far. Really appreciated how helpful she was!! Bed was very comfortable. Main room and bathroom were really big compared to most of the hotels we stayed at on this trip. Very happy with our stay and would recommend it to others.

We stayed at the country inn and suites over night during a 10 day road trip from Georgia to New York. Our experience was wonderful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The lady at the front desk (Tiffany) was super helpful. She printed directions for us to get to "The Horn in the West" show. I highly recommend the show! Tiffany also helped us with several other amenities that we desired. We would definitely stay at this hotel again. The location was about 1 mile from the show and across the street from a grocery store and several other conveniences.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The hotel has good interiors. Rooms are spacious and well furnished. Rooms and bathrooms are clean however I found hair in one of the bathroom towels. Hence I have given cleanliness 3 points. Complimentary breakfast was good and there were a lot of options and variety. You can choose to have it outside while enjoying beautiful view or can have it inside breakfast hall. Coffee/ tea was available at all times. Wifi is included in the price and has good speed. We would like to stay here again if we revisit Boone.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing road which has good mountain view.

Originally, we were supposed to stay at the Best Western Plus next door. Well, we arrived on the morning of June 9th to see our hotel barricaded off by cones and police tape due to deaths from carbon monoxide in one of the rooms. We were able to good transferred over to Country Inn and Suites in a relatively timely manner, and were able to keep our rate from the Best Western Plus next door! We walked in to our 3rd story room to find awesome mountain views AND a heart-shaped whirlpool! The girl at the front was very kind and helpful to us in getting us a room. Our room was clean, quiet, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast each morning was essentially your standard hotel breakfast, but we'd say it was just a little better than average, with scrambled eggs, ham, sausage, granola, yogurt, etc. The hotel is attractive inside and out. Especially considering we got this hotel for the same price as the one we originally paid for, it is a much nicer hotel. The location is central to the Parkway, shopping, gas, and downtown. We're really pleased and hope to be back one day!

A good stay but would recommend waiting till renovations are completed. The pool bottom was breaking up and the pool area needed some updating. The rooms were very large, but needed also to be updated. At least they were very clean. The staff was very nice. Breakfast was better than at lot of other places. There were hot options that were different every day. The breakfast area needed to be larger, it filled up really fast. Good location, movie theater and good mexican place across the street. You've got to drive to downtown, though. That is where all the good restaurants are. Overall, it was good.

All hotels in Boone are overpriced. What's worse is the quality of the accomodations. Simply stated, my room stank of old cigarette and cigar smoke. There was an area of mold in the bathroom shower. The shower walls were not clean. The wifi wasn't working. When I brought that to the attention of the front desk no action was taken to fix it. Boone is a college town. I'm sure they could find someone who knows what to do. In this case, the hotel's management is the problem. They simply don't care. If they did, these problems would not exist.

First time staying at a Country Inn & Suites and will be my last. The Hampton Inn is so much better which is where we usually stay. The room internet was not working and apparently was out for a while. Also, the a/c in the hotel was not working properly and the pool (which was a big joke) area was like being in a sauna! The pool looked murky and a was very uninviting. The breakfast was decent. TV service was sporadic for some reason. Picture kept going off and on.
Overall, would would not recommend unless you couldn't get a room in another hotel in the area.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the top floor and NOT facing the highway!
