The King bed suite is a great room. I loved that the bedroom waa separate from the living room. I was disappointed that i couldn't open both sides of the dividing door for better air circulation from the ceiling fan. The blackout curtains also were torn which made me wonder if the small things like that were neglected.

It took at least 10 minutes for the clerk to come to the desk to check me in. I rang the bell at least 7 times. She stated she was "in the bathroom". There were 3 of us waiting to check in by the time she returned. When I left the building to get something out of my car about 15 minutes later, the clerk was outside the front door talking on her cell phone. I came down for breakfast at 7:45 am. No clean plates, only bowls. I took the last slice of bread (only one available) for toast. The entire case had about 10 pieces of "sweet bread" left in it. So, breakfast items were not being replaced. Regular coffee carafe was empty. I have stayed at many Country Inn & Suites and this is my most disappointing stay.

The food was plentiful, and not just continental bkfst. Hotel very close to large movie theater that we went to- glad to have it nearby! The room was clean, tv quality good. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Did not use gym but it had lots of quality equipment. Staff was very friendly. Only thing not great was the mattress and pillows- both could use more support. no problem and excellent value.

This was an okay place. We were trying to save a $ and took the less expensive room and it was kind of a dump. But the service and the place was okay. We just wanted some place to sleep before heading home the next day.

Some Good Things. Some Not So Good

Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. Our room keys quite working on the second day and we quickly got new ones. Breakfast food was good.
Cons: Rooms need to be cleaned more carefully. Routine maintenance should be done on such things as toilets and leaky sinks before the next occupants
Location: There is a movie complex nearby and restaurants withing a couple of minutes
My daughter, 2 year old grandson, and I stayed at this hotel. It was quiet and the staff were helpful and friendly. The dining area is quite small for breakfast and does not accommodate very many people at one time. The staff did keep the food replenished during the breakfast hours. The pool was heated and had adequate chairs and towels available. The carpeting looked new. While staying in the room, we found a half empty container of bottled water and a used lip balm under the bed and under the nightstand. At the foot of one bed we found a piece of wood about 8 inches long with three nails sticking out of it. I was able to grab it before my grandson stepped on it. The toilet flushed partially flushed about every 1-2 minutes and constantly ran. We kept the bathroom door closed which reduced the noise. My daughter heated some water in a paper cup provided with the coffee servers. The cup burned in the microwave after only one minute which indicated a problem with the microwave since the cup was microwave safe. We gave the burned cup and the wood with the nails in it to the person at the desk when we checked out. We did take pictures of the wood, the cup, and the unsanitary discarded items (water bottle and lip balm) if there are questions about it.

Worn, run down, overpriced

Cons: Update, update, update. This hotel is a poster child for deferred maintenance. Paint, replace, fix everything that needs it. Or cut your rates by 75%,
Hotel was clean, staff was okay, but the age of the hotel and needed maintenance were a negative. In my room, the drain in the tub was raised above the tub floor - I mean the actual rim of the drain. The tub drained fine - which just means with every shower there was water running underneath the tub onto the ceiling below, not into the plumbing. The bathroom door was badly in need of painting - the bottom 6 inches of the door had bubbled, chipped, and missing paint. The sink was cracked around the drain, and stained. For the room rates they charge, it was pretty disappointing. I'll find a different hotel next time.

Nice Hotel

Pros: Good location, nice rooms, nice pool area, good breakfast
Cons: Employees should not be so rude.
Location: We were within minutes of many restaurants, shopping, the zoo and family fun park.
Overall we had a good stay. Rooms were nice, pool was great for the kids, breakfast was a good hot meal and was different every day. The man working in the breakfast area was quite rude. One of our kids accidentally spilled some food and he was clearly disgusted he had to clean it up. He then walked over to the front desk and told the front desk attendant in a loud voice "That f*&#ing kid just dumped food all over and f#$*#ing made me clean it up!" Not very professional in my opinion!
