As we checked out of the worst western hotel next door, following a very unsatisfying stay (feeling that our money should have been returned to us) we saw the Country Inns and Suites. My husband and I decided to inquire about an early check in and rates with this business. Our week has since become a vacation. It isn't all that easy to find a good-smelling room or an insect-free experience in this part of the country sometimes (we're both from here). But this hotel has made us rethink our expectations about what our part of the map has and should have to offer.
Fresh baked spunkmeyer cookies at the front desk-even at midnight on Friday.
Housekeeping staff with excellent manners-we hunt them down to give them tips they're so fast and efficient.
Front desk and breakfast hospitality that makes you think of your mom on a good day :)
Seriously the staff is first rate at making a traveler feel welcome.
I'm not crazy about the kind of food they offer for complimentary breakfast in a few particulars, BUT today there were omelets in the chafing pan, rosemary potato wedges beside it and their grits look pretty groovy, i might try em tomorrow.
Also, it's possible to get a free hot coffee, reg or decaf throughout the night in the lobby which is comfortable, spacious and smells good.. We are still enjoying our stay here after almost a week and have decide to stick around through Thanksgiving-it's a change of plans but they have made us feel so welcome, we'd rather pay their rate (very reasonable) than stay at my Mama's house. Believe it!
