Had to go to Dothan with my 6 yo daughter for a two day stay and found the Country Hearth and Inn on the internet, called and spoke to a very friendly employee who answered all my questions and was extremely helpful in telling me about the area (restaurants, shopping and location to where we were visiting).
Upon arrival met the nicest staff, checked in very quickly and offered any assistance needed. Our room was not 5 star, but was not expecting it to be, the room WAS however, clean and roomy, had clean towels (bath, hand and face), new soap, shampoo and toilet paper, room accommodations included microwave & refrigerator which were very clean, hairdryer, small sofa, table with 2 chairs and cable color tv, yes it did have older furniture (nightstand, table, dresser & sofa, but all appliances seemed new). Did experience a problem with the air conditioner late in the first day, but was immediately moved to a new room, and everything was just as described above (cannot really complain about them not being aware of the AC, probably the first time it had been turned on this season, due to weather just warming up). It did appear alot of the staff lives on site. The pool was clean and the pool area very inviting, my daughter had a great time and was included in play by the staff's children (in my opionion it was still to cold to swim, but the kids turned blue happily!). Extra towels and blankets given upon request with a smile, only asking what else they could do. Upon returning from an outing saw the manager/owner going in/out of rooms with his staff and heard him talking about replacing stained, old and tattered furniture and that, to me, shows he cares about its appearance and is working to make it a nicer place. Also our room had been cleaned, bed made and fresh towels put out. Free breakfast was muffins, bagels, cereal, fresh fruit, milk, juice and coffee. Hotel seems to appeal to the 'working class' and felt very comfortable. My main concern, of course, traveling alone with my daughter, was safety and I can honestly say we felt very safe and comfortable and would stay here again. Also just 1 mile away from Adventureland, a great little park with kid golf, bumper boats, race track and arcade, my daughter and I had a great afternoon there and the hotel is right in the middle of many restaurants, we enjoyed the Outback Steakhouse and others and did not have to go out of our way for anything.
