Just back from my grandson;s wedding last weekend in Marion.
My son and I stayed at the Country Inn & Suites and were quite pleased with that lodging experience. My kind and extremely hospitable daughter and her husband were gracious in picking up the tab for our 3 night stay at this fine hotel.
A convenient location just off the freeway with restaurants and shopping close by. If you like baseball the ball park is just up the hill. Or if the season is over and you just want to take a stroll to look at the empty ball park that option is available to you.
I liked the inviting lobby with the fireplace flanked bookcases and big comfortable chairs with a coffee table with an impressive selection of magazines everything from USA Today to Wired Magazine. Quick, hassle free wif fi all over the hotel. A computer station for printing your boarding pass.
Back to the lobby. Warm fuzziness and inviting complemented by friendly folks behind the desk.
Speedy check in and out.
We liked the beds....very comfortable . Clean room. Nicely appointed. Pretty much quiet although my son reported party sounds comming from room above around 2am. I was into advanced sleep mode and missed it.
And I can't say enough about how much the breakfast buffet meant to us.
So I will, without going into great detail, just say it was not lacking in anyway. Wait. there was a teeny, tiny thing..(Haven't whined in a TA review in a long time so here goes).when I went to the 2% milk dispenser to top off my bowl of raisin bran I felt like Old Mother Hubbard who's cupboard was bare...out a milk. But nothing is perfect and no one knows when you are going to run out of milk as there is no gauge like the one on your dashboard for your gasoline...but this problem was remedied in a jiffy and I can't put into words the unique and ...well...that special moment that comes with being the first person to use a quickily installed, fresh, new milk supply, Kudos to the buffet coordinator for the professional way this was handled.
It's a great breakfast...waffles, fruit, juices, coffee, pastries, bagels...etc. All that one could hope for and even more.
The staff were all wonderful and made us feel right at home with their warmth and attention in serving us.
We didn't use the fitness room, hot tub, or pool but the folks we observed using those facilities seemed to be well pleased.
Country Inn and Suites ...very nice lodging. Highly recommended.
