Nice location, friendly staff, welcoming lobby, free breakfast.
We have stayed at several Country Inn & Suites and this was the first time we have not had an enjoyable experience. The lobby was welcoming, with friendly staff and signature fresh cookies. However, the rooms are in major need of renovations. Our bathroom was horrible. There had been water damage, the door would not close no matter how hard we pushed it (I think because of the damage to the floor and door jamb) so no privacy when using the toilet or showering. The tub itself looked old and the enamel coating on the bottom was chipping. Upon trying to take a shower, I noticed a weird dark spot on the white shower curtain (fabric/cloth type, not plastic/vinyl. After looking closer and calling my husband in, we discovered our worst fear--feces. Beyond disgusted, we politely called the front desk and asked that they send someone up to swap it out with a new clean one. They were prompt and attentive, but did not ask if we wanted to switch rooms or offer any type of consolation for the situation. I wouldn't even expect this type of oversight for an economy/budget motel, let alone a $100+ hotel & suites establishment. My Country Inn experience has been tainted and unfortunately, I do not think we will take the chance spending our money on this chain again.
