We had a family function in North Carolina near Lake Norman so we booked into this hotel as we often stay at Country Inn Suites in Florida. I booked a Queen Suite for 2 nights. I thought the price seemed high for the time of year, but booked anyway. I received my conformation and was still bothered by the price so I started checking other sites and sure enough found a much lower price through Hotwire. Country Inn Suites online booking promises to beat any price you find lower then their own site by 15% if you contact them within 24 hours of booking. I emailed them the information and they totally honored my lower price and adjusted my rate. It was well worth the time to check rates.
The hotel itself is in good shape. The lobby is attractive and they kept restocking the free cookies and coffee. The room was nice with a separate bedroom from the TV area with a closeable door. The free breakfast is more then adequate but no hot food was served. They did have make your own waffles with whipped cream and strawberries as well as microwaveable bacon, egg and cheese biscuits. The free Wifi worked well and parking was easy.
The pool area was off the breakfast room and looked nice but we never went in. They also had a business center ,where we were able to print out our boarding passes. The hotel staff was friendly and attentive. We had a small problem with a drain in the bathroom and it was fixed very quickly with little disruption. All in all our stay was pleasant and if we are back in the area we would probably stay there again.
