We rarely use any other chain and have always been pleased with Country Inn & Suites, but this property was horrible! Reservation was made through Club Carlson online with request for a room on the top floor which was not honored. So, naturally, sleep was horrid with people tromping about like elephants above us.
But the WORST was nothing but cold cereal and coffee for breakfast. Apparently the breakfast hostess didn't show up and this place hadn't made any contingency plan for someone else to cover the job. By the time we were leaving, we noticed that someone was just beginning to prepare for some of the hot breakfast items -- We only saw this because we had to walk back to the breakfast area to grab some coffee for the road since the urn in the front lobby was empty!
If we need lodging in this area again, we will either keep going to the next closest Country Inn property or stay at another brand.
