“Best Graduation gift ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

Our room was clean! even smelled clean! Shortly after checking in we got a call from the front desk asking if the room was ok. We stayed on a Monday night had the pool and whirlpool to ourselves. there was some things starting to rust in the pool room but that didnt ruin our stay. The pillows on the bed you melt into. there were extra pillows and blankets in the room in zippered storage bags. Fridge in the room was clean as well as the microwave. Breakfast was grand, eggs sausage, biscuts and gravy, fresh fruit, waffles, cereals, ect. I even wiped my fingers across the picture frame tops no dust!!

This chain has a certain standard and this location lives up to the best of them and even the least. Friendly accommodating staff, comfortable surroundings and set back enough from the road to make for a quiet night's rest. I will be back again!

My daughter and I spent the night at this hotel for the first time last night. We had a great time swimming. We were there to celebrate her birthday and a couple of friends came to swim with us, and ended up getting a room of their own. The lobby was very nice and the cookies were delicious. The staff was friendly. I was also surprised that check out time was noon. I am so used to it being earlier. So no need to ask for late check out!

We got a two room suite. The price was wonderful and the room was nice. I had expected it to be a little larger, but it was completely adequate. I do think that in the future I will ask for an aditional trash can though. We had to leave trash sitting on the table because the two were full.

Breakfast in the morning was good, but we had to wait for new food to be brought out. Guess we chose a very popular time to go down to eat. There was a nice selection and I really ejoyed the biscuits and gravy.

After this experience, I will now be looking for the Country Inn and Suites when I travel.

The hotel was very nice and very clean. Even with a large amount of drunk factory workers staying here the room was quiet and hotel kept clean. I would recommend getting a room on the top floor and towards the north, to increase quiet and lessen road noise. When checking out the manager or possibly owner was dressed in pajamas. The manager/owner ignored us when we were trying to check out, asking her three times for assistance. She never asked us how our stay was or even said thank you. It was very odd, may be a small complaint though staff didn't seem too happy to work there so there might be a management issue. Otherwise a nice hotel.

Room Tip: Upper floor to the north.

I think the staff is great. Very helpful and friendly ..Carrie is the best! The rooms are always clean and the beds are very comfortable. The complementary cookies are awesome. The hotel for the most part is very
quiet.. Great for relaxing.. They also have a heated indoor pool.

We stayed there 10-5-2013. The room & lobby area had a very strange odor. I said something to the front desk lady. She said the cleaning ladies are doing there best on getting rid of a musty smell. Almost smelled like tree oil. It was bad. I would not stay there again. Made me ill for a day.

We've stayed at this hotel many times over the year's while visiting family in the area. The hotel is kept up to date and clean. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The suites are very nice with a microwave oven, small refrigerator and a large cabinet to store food and drinks.

Housekeeping does a very good job. The "funky" smell another reviewer reported is likely the chlorine from the pool. Since it's indoors, the chemical's don't disperse very quickly.

The grandkid's love to come swim while we're there and the pool and hot tub area are in good shape. (The little one thinks we live here and wonder's why they can't come more often!)

There are free newspaper's and fresh cookies in the lobby area, along with a bookcase of "read and return" books.

Room Tip: Because we stay for a couple of weeks we enjoy the suite option. The rooms in the back are quieter...
