It was about 8:00 p.m. on a Monday evening, after a long day of driving since morning. I was traveling with my "senior-aged" mother. We were nearing the end of our trip, so she had been very weary and was getting a little crabby. When we pulled into the parking lot, she said, "Oh, we should stay here." I said, "Yes, Mom. This IS our hotel." She was stunned and so delighted with this hotel it was amazing.
The hotel hostess was wonderfully friendly and helpful. She signed me up as a Club Carlson Member - Note: I told her I wasn't interested, but she was so informative that I said yes and she immediately had the card all ready for me.
I told her I was traveling with my 85 year-old mother and asked if I could have the room for $85. She happily agreed.
My mother was tired and we were both hungry. We needed something close and inexpensive, but wanted good food. Our hotel hostess had a list of restaurants with directions - then she recommended one that wasnearby, and just what we were hoping for.
There were cookies and mints at the counter, and coffee or tea for the weary traveler - right there, beyond the front desk. The lobby was beautiful.
Our hostess gave me the details about breakfast, the pool, hot tub, and exercise room on the second floor. She even gave me perfect instructions on where to park for the easiest access to a ramp that was near our room.
The room was clean, smelled good, and the beds were great. Wi-fi was easy to access, but the room was a little sparse regarding outlets for my computer and mobile phone. The ventilation system was a definite plus. My mother likes it warmer (because she gets cold easily), but that usually means it is stuffy and humid in most hotel rooms (and unbearable for me). But our room had a system that circulated the air well, and made it so comfortable for both of us that I would choose this hotel every time because of it. Well-stocked bathroom, TV, microwave, coffee maker, ice bucket, and fridge. Great water pressure in the shower. The shower curtains are changed every time, too. The attention to detail was very good.
The design of the window treatments was well thought out. Easy to close the curtains without making the room look trashy.
We had a late breakfast and there was a nice mix of hot and cold items - eggs, bacon, Danish, yogurt and fruit, oatmeal, cold cereal, little bagels and cream cheese, a waffle maker for fresh waffles, englsh muffins, herbal teas, coffee & decaf, juices - and the attendant in the breakfast room was also warm and friendly. She never rushed us, and joked playfully with us.
The beds were very comfortable, and we were well rested for the last leg of our trip. Thank you, Country Inn & Suites, for your attention to detail, your well-trained staff, the duvet on each bed, the well circulating air. Overall, a great experience.
