We take frequent road trips and have always enjoyed our stays at Country Inn and Suites but we were disappointed with this brand new facility. It's personal preference that we did not like the ultra modern look, but other issues were more disconcerting.
It was an EXTREMELY small king room with no seating other than the armless computer chair. The rain shower had very low water pressure (again, that is a personal preference judgement tho) and worst of all.......the ice/soda machine was literally right outside our door. We have never seen that before! We were lucky in that the occupancy rate that evening was very low so the use and noise was minimal but really - right outside a guest room door? They are building a 24 pump quick mart next door and even at this point - there is virtually no green space in the area. The breakfast was served on china tableware but the quiches were not hot and the fruit was still partially frozen. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful but all in all - we much prefer more homey atmosphere of the "traditional" Country Inns with nicely sized rooms and comfortable furnishings.
