We have stayed at this hotel many times in the past, although it has been quite a few years since we have been there. We were a bit apprehensive this visit knowing the age of the hotel and how busy it always is; hotels can get run down and really show wear and tear. This couldn’t have been further from the truth! The lobby and all common areas were spotless and everything looked new. When we walked into our two-room suite, it not only smelled clean, it smelled new! We found out later that the hotel is being renovated and the third floor had just been finished. They have also upgraded their TV’s – we had two 32” flat panel HD TVs in the room.
We have stayed in many Country Inn & Suites, and this one is one of the best. The living room area of the suite was huge! We are planning a family fun weekend, and upon our return and glowing report of this location, we will be staying here.
The staff was very friendly. The front desk attendant, Mary Beth (if I remember her name correctly), was beyond helpful. There were some large groups, including a sports team staying that weekend, and the breakfast staff was terrific at keeping up with the teenage boys. Everything was very well stocked and she kept everything constantly wiped down and clean.
The only thing, and it's small, is we had a hard time finding a comfortable temperature. It was either too warm or too cool. However, on the plus side, the room has a ventilation fan (very quiet) that moves the air into the living room area to keep it comfortable. The living room also has a ceiling fan, which was greatly appreciated!
