Comfortable stay

Staff was very friendly. Hotel was clean and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was the same as others. Location is not real desirable but overall would stay here again.

Excellent for the price

Cons: Signs on the road indicating the hotel location
Our stay was very good. Room was very clean and organized. We got there a little earlier and it was already ready for us. Staff was nice. Only issue was the location. The road to get to the entrance has no signs to the hotel and is very poorly lit. Therefore, it was difficult for us and for Uber drivers to get there.

Stayed during an evacuation from a hurricane.

Pros: Staff
Cons: Smell in room. Not sure if someone smoked but it smelled like very strong coconut air freshner.
Location: Shopping and restaurants were terrific.
Staff were friendly, accomodating and knowledgable. Rooms were clean and breakfast was nice.

Comfortable Stay

Nice hotel, a little tricky to get to. The suite was fine, but sofa and chair were not comfortable. All told, it was a pleasant stay.

Quiet, friendly, clean

This hotel was not in the "center" of things like some others, but still convenient to the highway and close enough to the people we were visiting. It was extremely quiet there, rarely heard anyone in the halls, etc. and only one brief moment of a dog barking--and it's a pet friendly hotel! Desk staff was friendly at all hours of the night (1 a.m. arrival for us!) and daytime too. Breakfast had somewhat less variety than most other free breakfasts but the staff made up for it as they attended to keeping it all clean and filled and even made waffles for the guests!

The staff were very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed our stay.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The Country Inn Suites was in a great location for us, convenient to the Charlotte South Park area and convenient to the Concord area to the north. We also found a great restaurant in downtown Matthews. I definitely recommend this hotel, particularly if you are on a budget. Excellent value.

Very personable staff willing to make you feel like you're at home.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: not easy access for 74 southbound
Great hotel with a fantastic price. We stayed two nights. James, at the front desk, remembered details about our family and knew our room number upon seeing us each morning. We were allowed to check in several hours early. The cleaning crew do an outstanding job. Waffles for breakfast (although the 2nd waffle maker needed repair) were delish and were very popular. The pool room was warm and humid for those monitoring their kids. I will stay there again!!
