Maybe it's suffering from mid-vacation burnout, but this is not what I expect from Country Inns. Which is, dependable amenities and friendly, helpful staff.
We arrived at 6:30 pm and were given a room next to the elevator on the middle floor. When I requested a different room, the bored young man at the front desk said it was "my last room". Hmm. Wonder what he did for the people checking in behind us. There was no fridge, and we couldn't get the AC working. (Got a bad answer from Mr Bored, who sent up maintenance eventually.) But it's so noisy it kept me awake, sounded like a big truck idling. We wanted it on to mask the noise from our central location and the road, but that was overkill. The room was also musty at first, though the AC helped that. Tiny indoor pool with too strong chemical smell, so the kids were disappointed not to be allowed to use it. Amenities only average, no free movies anymore? (HBO's not the same, and no family-appropriate movies or channels after 7.) No popcorn in room. Breakfast--frozen Jimmy Dean sausage biscuits with a scary nutrition panel; I had stale raisin bran. No water in the exercise room. No lid on the toilet, what's up with that? Just felt like they were cutting corners everywhere.
You know, it's OK. Beds are clean, bathroom works, price ok. We often use Country Inns for the extra space and dependability, but this place will make us think twice before we book again.
