We arrived a few minutes after 4:00p the check in time given when reservations were made. there was 1 man ahead of us but the woman in the window was on the phone and didn't acknowledge him. He ended up leaving. We waited a good while to check in apparently the credit card machine wasn't working properly. so the entire time we were trying to check in she was on the phone .In the mean time 2 more people were standing in line to check in. this is a tiny little room it's tight with 2 people but 4? I went outside while my husband checked in. When we went to out room there was masking tape on the dead bolt and the door way.peep hole etc were taped off the same. It was as though painting had just been completed. When we looked up and down the row of rooms the majority of them also had masking tape on them. the couple we were traveling with booked a non smoking room but the room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke.
when we asked about the on line coupon they have on their website. which states:
Off Your First Stay
At Country Inn
NOT VALID WITH OTHER DISCOUNTS, SPECIAL EVENT OR HOLIDAYS. PLEASE PRINT COUPON AND PRESENT AT HOTEL AT CHECK IN TO RECEIVE DISCOUNT.
we were told because we'd reserved on line we were already given a discount and they would not honor this coupon.
when we returned in the evening there wasn't enough parking in the lot. some people had parked in areas marked no parking.
this was close to the freeway, outlet malls and casinos if you plan only to sleep this is ok.
