We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We booked partly due to the reasonable pricing, good location and included breakfast but also to experience a bit of nostalgia as I had stayed at the hotel 18 years prior.
The check-in process was easy and the staff friendly. The room was more than spacious enough for the 2 of us and had all the amenities you would expect with the added bonus of having a fridge and microwave. The room was fairly clean however some of the harder to clean places (picture frames etc) were quite dusty.
Wifi was ok if just browsing the net however for anything more, it is unusable - tried to Skype family overseas however the call continuously dropped.
The breakfast was amazing just as I had remembered it. Great choices of hot and cold foods including eggs, bacon, sausage and biscuits with gravy. There is also a happy hour in the early evening where you get a free beverage of beer or wine and the choice of nachos, popcorn and carrot sticks - a nice touch.
The pool area was clean and tidy. We only used it in the late afternoon/evening so it was never busy.
Location wise the hotel is a few minutes walk from the beach via the Freeway overpass. To get into the main part of town is also only about a 5-10 minute walk.
Parking at the hotel was never a problem - we were always able to get an underground spot at any time of the day.
Overall we had a great experience at the Country Inn and would definately go back!
