We pass through annually and keep looking for that perfect hotel. Our last stay was at Cousins Country.
Parking was close and the lot was vacant on Dec 27th but the room was an elevator ride up to the 3rd floor instead of outside the door like at Cousins Country. The room furnishings are current, tasteful & clean. The window heating unit fan was noisy but it worked to warm up room quickly and was quieter than the Cousins Country unit.
From the website impression we thought the heated pool would be functional but upon check in we were informed that it is only a seasonal pool, closed Sep to May and the water seemed to be as cold as the 40F outside temp.
We had reserved the deluxe king studio but the room was smaller than a standard king room at Cousins Country and the bathroom was cramped. The bath counter was overtaken with a coffee maker and the room's dresser was overtaken with TV while the Cousins Country Inn had quite a bit of countertop space. It did have a micro and fridge which was nice.
The downtown location was convenient to walking to a restaurant but the rain prevented that on our stay. Although this is a friendly, clean hotel it did not give us the heated pool/spa we had hoped for to restore our weary muscles. Given the area hotel prices this hotel offers fair market value and a comfortable night's sleep but not the soaker tub, hot tub, or heated pool experience we were seeking.
