“A- overall grade... few negatives”
Reviewed July 1, 2008

POSITIVES:

This property is fairly new. Good location and surrounded by quality restaurants and gas stations. Hotel condition was very pleasing and clean. Indoor pool and whirlpool were larger than average. Booked room was 2 queen suite. Very comfortable beds and well furnished with larger than average refrig. and large HD TVs. Breakfast area was clean, spacious, well stocked, and had good variety.

NEGATIVES:

I booked the room off the Country Inn and Suites website, and the map and directions link at the time was completely wrong as the directions told me to get off exit 149 (when the exit was 145A) and sent me down some back roads into the middle of nowhere that eventually dead ended. Website directions to the hotel need to be corrected or updated. I did tell the front desk staff about it.

The bathroom is EXTREMELY small and cramped. One of the worse in the category of space I've ever been in. I don't know why the bathrooms were built so small especially for a new hotel, but it is a negative point.

I could not access any wireless internet during my stay, nor was there a hardline available for the internet in the room. Nowadays, when even restaurants and gas stations are offering wi-fi, I was surprised I was unable to access it at a new hotel.

The 3rd floor hallway was ice cold at night, though, as the setting at 70 on the hallway thermostat seemed to be way low.

Pepsi machines only sold cans with no bottled water available. None of the machines accepted dollar bills. .75 per can.

Finally, the key cards to our room kept losing their memory. After the 3rd time of this happening and having to go to the front desk for reprogramming, I was told that perhaps my cell phone or keyless entry car keys were erasing them. NEVER have I ever had that problem anywhere at any other hotel or resort.

PS... personal pet peeve... they had ZERO chocolate chip cookies the entire time I was there.... what's up with that!?!?!

Stopped on our way back from Florida. The hotel had only been open for 3 weeks. The room was excellent. The beds where wonderfull. A large flat screen TV was a pleasure to watch. Stayed at several Country Inns & Suites before but this is the best. The breakfast had a large variety of choices. Highly recommended.

  • Liked — Very clean. Everything was in new condition
  • Disliked — Nothing
