“Nice stay for deep sleepers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We enjoyed our stay here. The front desk clerk was extremely friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast area was clean, and breakfast was a fine selection. We used the pool and hot tub and both were clean. Our only complaint was the highway noise during the night, but only for the light sleepers in our group.

Easy on and off of expressway, room was clean, but thin walls you can hear people in next room and upstairs. Also window did not have solid curtain, we ended up putting extra bedspread over it. Restaurants and gas station close by

I am very disappointed in the reviews as saying this hotel was worth a stay. Save your money not worth 100$ maybe $50. I never write reviews and by far I am not too picky bc as I said I would rather stay In the woods. Our first room smelled of smoke so we moved. Our second room we could tell the floor was a little dirty but at the rate things were going e third room wasn't going to be any better and our newborn was asleep. Woke in the am to take a shower and found dirty washcloths hanging over the shower curtain and leftover popcorn on the floor. This hotel chain is off our list... Next time will go with gut and go next door to holiday inn

We stopped in Charleston overnight on our way to North Carolina and landed in the area of the Country Inn. We priced the three in the general area and the Country Inn was the only one that gave the AARP discount. The room was very nice, we stayed on the main floor and it appeared to have been recently renovated. No problem with noise, the beds were very comfortable, clean, and the breakfast started at 6 a.m. which was great for the early travelers. The food was the basic breakfast bar, nothing special but adequate for what we needed. I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing a clean, reasonably priced hotel.

Green Features: They were very eco-friendly with their towels, etc.

My family usually stays at this hotel when we visit family. They are decent accomadations. Clean, not very modern, but freshly renovated as of Spring 2013. The staff is okay. They aren't very helpful and they are usually new, but they have compensated us numerous times for issues we find within the facility, which is nice of them. We went while they were renovating and a few time we were awoken early and the fire alarm went off, they compensated us with 2-nights free stay for the troubles. I can appreciate a clean hotel with good customer service.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the front, right of the building, there is a highway on the back side of the buildin...

Beautiful rooms and very clean! Better price than the Holiday Inn next door. Great staff; the cable on our large flat screenn TV wasn't working and a staff member was up immediately and fixed it. Lovely decorum in lobby and room.

We stayed here with 2 kids (age 9 and 6) while on a drive from Raleigh, NC to Akron, OH. We stopped in around 9:00 PM to see what kind of rate we could get after going to the Holiday Inn Express next door. They beat the Holiday Inn by about $20 and we were sold. And now that we've stayed there it will likely be our stop in the future.

The double room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and plenty big. The front desk staff was courteous and helpful. I also appreciated the courtesy of the man who was emptying trash and doing general janitorial work in the morning. He helped me find a fresh sleeve of coffee cups, which was nice.

The breakfast is the basic hotel continental breakfast. There were waffle makers as well as some sausage gravy in addition to the usual assortment of cereal, diced melons, and pastries. It was nothing outstanding, but it was right in line with the value we would expect from such a place.

The kids enjoyed swimming in the indoor pool as well. We didn't have a lot of time to spend there, but that was OK. There was just enough to do for a nice overnight stay.
