So, the fam had decided that we wanted to do some cross-border shopping during the March break. And so, I looked up a number of Birch Run hotels for us to stay in. Saw Country Inn and Suites listed, and didn't really look into it, aside from the price. As long as it was close to the outlet malls, I would be happy.
So, after a long drive from home, drove up to the hotel, and was very surprised as to how close to the outlet mall it actually was! Not exactly walking distance (the clusters of stores, aside from the nearest one, was too far apart), but it was still nice to be that close. The lobby area was very cozy -- a country-ish feel, along with cookies at the front desk. The sitting area had a basket of red delicious apples. My only complain would be the strong chlorine smell of the swimming pool, which was located toward the back of the hotel, near the elevators. Sometimes, the chlorine smell would make it out to the lobby area. Ah well, at least it's a "clean" smell.
The rooms themselves were fairly comfy. The pillows were okay -- but they were the type that started out fluffy/airy at the start of the night, and then your head ends up level with the bed within a few short hours. Since I tend to "swim" in my sleep, I was able to readjust throughout the night.
Free parking and free wifi Internet, which are always nice things to have. Close enough to the various restaurants to make it very convenient -- assuming you like Bob Evans (which I do).
