“Good place to stay when visiting Elon U.”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

We have made numerous trips to Elon over the past few years, and always choose Country Suites. We appreciate the extra space of the suite, and having a mini-fridge to store our beverages. The rooms are always clean, the staff is very nice, the rooms are easy to get to with your luggage, and the breakfast is decent quality (for a hotel breakfast room.) We have never had an issue with lines or lack of seating at breakfast. There is always fresh cut fruit (strawberries, blueberries, cantaloupe, honeydew) which we really appreciate. I don't believe we have ever had a noise issue, which we did have at another popular Burlington hotel. Country Suites is a laid back place that does things well and with a friendly attitude.

My family Stayed here for 3 nights during Elon Univ. move-in and we couldn't be happier with the proximity to the school. No having to get back on the highway or confusing directions, just a 5 minute drive to the campus and many restaurants. The hotel is right off the highway but we didn't notice any noise and weren't kept awake by it, but we did have the AC on all the time. The hotel is a bit outdated and in need of new more modern furniture, even if it is a "country" theme. The sofa bed is very ugly and uncomfortable to sit on, but serves the purpose. The suite consists of 2 rooms each with a tv, and a small wet bar area with a microwave and fridge. 2 large closets and 2 bureaus, which we never used. Bathroom could use some tlc, as the drained was very slow and the products were so small the shampoo barely covered my head, I suggest bringing your own. Breakfast was the standard continental, but lacked English muffins and the bagels were stale. A highlight was the FRESH cut fruit. The hotel also provided complimentary ice cold water bottles on the day of the college move-in because it was 95 degrees outside! Nice touch. All in all not a bad hotel, just a bit tired, but very clean and convenient.

Thank you for taking the time to review Country Suites. Your feedback is appreciated and is shared with the ownership group. Adding English Muffins to the breakfast selections is an excellent idea. We will review products from our supplier and will work on implementing them in the coming weeks. As part of our renovation process for this year, the hotel is scheduled to replace all sofa beds on October 17, 2014.
Should you have additional questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Stayed here one night to visit Elon University. Loved it!
Location
Restaurants and shopping close by. My son forgot his belt. Was able to dash to Walmart 1 min away. Chick-fil-a 1 min away has great service!
Parking
Loved the free parking! Ample parking!
Staff
Receptionist was welcoming and great! Found us menus for carry out and was very pleasant! Spent the evening in my room but while checking out the next morning we were greeted by staff with friendly smiles
Gym
My son was greatly disappointed with the gym. The bench was ridiculous to maneuver and the weight machine in his words was "a death trap"
Room
Comfy, clean, loved it. Chairs were spot free and inviting. Bathroom clean, towels clean and ample, bed comfy, sheets crisps and clean, carpet spot free! I was impressed. Hallways were clean too.
Breakfast
Ample choices. My son ate breakfast and was pleased with choices. Fruits, eggs etc

Elon
A 5 min drive to Elon on local roads... No highway. The town of Elon by the univetsity was beautiful. Loved the school!

Great hotel choice in the Burlington area. We stayed here because it was centrally located while doing some college visits. The rooms are very spacious and we appreciated the varied breakfast items on different days. All the staff were pleasant and we got a great rate by booking through Hotwire. Lots of places to eat nearby as well!

This place was very convenient for our quick trip. We needed to visit a relative in the hospital and it was very close and reasonably priced.
The service was excellent and the rooms are perfect. There is a tv in the livingroom and another in the bedroom.
The front desk people were very friendly and if we needed anything they were quick to make sure we had all we needed. The maid service was very nice and made sure we got our needs met with extra shampoo and conditioner. ..plus fresh towels.
All in all this is a great place to stay rather 1 day or multiple days. Will definitely be back
