Country Inn & Suites By Carlson
Ranked #1 of 11 Hotels in Stone Mountain
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Overall, this hotel was well maintained and the staff was very friendly. With the exception of a closet door that didn't work well and a microwave that was right out of the 1990's (it had turn dials instead of digital input), the room was in good condition. The room and bathroom were clean and the carpets were in very good condition. The free wi-fi worked well and I was able to use the business center to print out my boarding passes. Our daughter slept on the pullout in the front living area however, this area provides virtually no sound protection from people walking by in the hallways, so I wouldn't recommend anyone other than a heavy sleeper to consider sleeping in this area.

The location is about one exit away (5 minutes) from Stone Mountain Park. There is a shopping center w/Walmart and a couple of restaurants right across the street and there is a Waffle House and a Metro Cafe within walking distance as well. The Metro Cafe is open 24 hours and the food was good and reasonably priced. If you want to hop over to downtown Atlanta, it is about a 20 to 30 minute drive through some very nice scenery.

Th hotelhas a small indoor pooI and a small gym (two treadmills, an eliptical, and a small universal gym set. I would definately recommend this hotel as a nice, comfortable place to stay however, you shouldn't expect much more than the basic amenities.

This hotel is the only hotel we stay in when visiting Stone Mountain. We have tried a couple of other places but always come back here. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We usually have a suite but this time just a double room but it had a microwave and small fridge that we hadn't had on other visits so I'm not sure if this is in all of the rooms or not but it is a benefit particularly when traveling with kids. They have a nice indoor pool and hot tub which is another huge hit for our kids! Decent breakfast included in stay.... enough to make everyone happy with the selection.

We got in late and someone must have been smoking in the room. I went to front desk and told the night clerk the room wreaked of smoke. She apologized and moved us to a suite. I just wanted another room, and I was expecting that at all. Our room was right next to breakfast. It was perfect. The pool was hoppin and ran out of towels by the end of the weekend. They were literally washing everything by morning of checkout but my kids wanted to swim. Two maids helped us track down room towels to use. Very helpful. Will stay her on our next trip to stone mountain.

This hotel was a very nice weekend stay.

There was always a helpful person at the front desk, fresh baked cookies, and our room was clean and cold.

The hot breakfast in the mornings was a great start to an active day, but unfortunately, we did not have time to visit the pool, but it must have been fun, since it was packed the whole time we were there.

It was an exit away from Stone Mountain, so very convenient, with a great diner across the street.

Definitely going to be staying here again, next time we are in the area !!!

Room Tip: We were on the first floor, very close to the business room. Never heard a sound !! :)

Just returned home today from a night at this hotel. Great rate. My son loved the indoor pool, to much chlorine for me though. Girl at check in Saturday afternoon was very friendly and was making cookies for the kids! Check in process was very easy and fast. We will stay here again for sure!

This is a pretty nice hotel. Rooms are clean and smell good and staff is very friendly. Hot breakfast in the morning And a nice indoor pool area. I stay here two nights a month on business and would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: If your a day sleeper ask to stay away from the elevator

This is a decent hotel/motel in the Stone Mountain area, but nothing more than that. Rooms are decently appointed, and the staff is nice and efficient. I had a King suite room that served my needs just fine. The breakfast left a good bit to be desired, as the coffee was foul and the eggs were the consistency of powder.
