I had a discount coupon for the Country Inn and Suites in Kearney Nebraska which I attempted to use while making a telephone booking for the night of Monday, June 9, 2014. The Coupon was from a Hotel Coupons .com Discount Book.
The coupon was for $59.00 + Tax and specified that it was valid for 1-2 people, Sunday Thru Thursday with an additional $10 Charge for Friday and Saturdays. The coupon was valid thru 6/15/14. The only disclaimer was that it was subject to availability, not valid with other discounts, during holidays or special events.
I called the front desk directly, was told by the female who answered the phone that she did have 4 rooms available and the fee would be $119.00/ night.
I informed the desk clerk that I had a Coupon for $59.00/Night from the Hotel Coupons.Com that I would like to use.
The desk clerk informed me that I could not use the coupon because it was subject to availability.
I told the clerk that she just told me that she had 4 rooms available, with two beds, for $119.00.
The clerk stated that the manager or owner had advised her that when they only had a few rooms left for the night, that they would not accept any coupons.
I informed the clerk that this practice was deceptive and consisted of false advertising and that I would be staying elsewhere.
I should also note that the desk clerk informed me that they also do not honor AARP or AAA discounts when available rooms hit a certain point.
I hung up the phone and immediately called the Comfort Inn across the street and obtained a beautiful, clean room with 2 queen beds for a great price.
I don't have any other information good or bad about Country Inn and Suites other than their desceptive, bait and switch advertising.
The above rating is based only on my phone conversation with the front desk. I have no information regarding the actual hotel or its service.
