We often stay at Country Inn and Suites motels so naturally we booked a room here when we visited Dubuque, Iowa. There's nothing "wrong" with this motel but there's nothing really "right" about it either.
Our visit got off to a mediocre start at the front desk. The woman who worked there didn't smile, rarely looked up from her paperwork, didn't greet us or make us feel welcome. She wasn't unpleasant or inefficient; she just set an impersonal and indifferent tone. She spoke if spoken to and gave information if asked but clearly but not going to put out any effort unless compelled to.
Our room was OK, clean, and everything worked, but it was dated. Gold accented carpet, gold chair, gold bedspread, and gold drapes; a desk chair that was about 12" too low to make working at the desk possible; thin pillows and a marginal bed; and, a cracked and stained sink. I wondered if the furniture in the room had been bought from another motel that was remodeling and had used stuff for sale.
I also wondered if the motel had been another brand in a prior life. It just didn't have the quality that we've come to expect from Country Inn and Suites.
