Reviewed 16 March 2012

This property is very close to the interstate (check it on any map) and 18 wheelers drove through the room all night. I had worked all day and driven 4 hours thinking this would be a good rest point. I talked to the night shift about changing rooms but nothing. Not really the staff's fault. Just a VERY bad choice in the planning stage for a place primarily meant for sleep. I complained again in the morning and the desk clerk didn't really react at all - like I was just making an observation. Breakfast was okay but I was so tired I couldn't really enjoy it. But as dead as I was, the pool area was very nice. Luckily, the wife slept better than I did and she drove for a few hours while I napped. Should've done that the day before and saved $$. They sent a follow up email survey and they simply apologized. True. What can they do with a bad location?

Room Tip: NOT on the interstate side! Even then, I can't say it'll be good.

This hotel needs to upgrade its bedding. We have traveled extensively and found that the mattresses in this hotel are the most uncomfortable, or a close second, we have ever experienced. The breakfast staff at this hotel is its saving grace, so to speak, as they are the best we have experienced. The breakfast staff kept the breakfast room clean and fully stocked at all times. The most enjoyable part was they used REAL dishes and silverware! NOT plastic! The hotel is very easy to find and if you are not interested in a comfortable bed, then this is your place.

I have stayed at this Country Inn & Suites twice now, and both times I have been very pleased.

For the price (I payed $100 a night for an executive suite with king bed, TV, free internet, cable, jacuzzi, shower, etc.), you get a LOT of stuff. Because of this, you will have to book in advance by a decent bit.

Room comfort is good, the shower and jacuzzi water is always hot, and the air conditioning is robust. Housekeeping does an excellent job of upkeeping the room, and everytime I come back, the room is spick and span. My only complaint about the room is that the walls could be thicker, and it is easy to hear... Stuff... Through the walls.

Customer service is excellent in this motel, and the front desk always went the extra mile to help me out when I called them. The complimentary breakfast every morning is not bad, but it is not really amazing either. It consists of an assortment of pastries and some fruit juices, cereals, and a few hot, fresh items. It is enough for the discerning health nut, but not for someone who expects to eat like a king on their travels.

This motel also includes a business center, which is a room with a few private computers that can only be accessed by your guest card key; A fitness center, which has a small assortment of exercise equipment and some televisions; a pool, which is 4 feet deep at the deep end and has an adjoining large hot tub; and complimentary fresh cookies at the front desk, a nice "good bye" touch for when you check out.


It is surrounded by several other motels, so it isn't very scenic. However, the location is very practical, as it is under a half mile off of I-75, a major interstate for most travel in the area.

I would recommend this motel to anyone that needed to stay in the area.

Room Tip: Book in advance, this motel is in great demand, as it is one of the best in the area.
