I originally booked this hotel because I wanted to fully take advantage of Club Carlson's awesome "Redeem Points. Earn Points" promotion that is ongoing until January 31. My registration with this promotion will make our stay tonight entirely a free once the 9,000 points are redeposited into my account - it doesn't get better than that!
I got a kick out of the assigned parking spots that read "For Gold Points Elite" (Now Club Carlson); makes you feel a tad more special in a weird way, LOL.
Upon pulling in to the Country Inn & Suites, Cookeville, TN, I did notice that the sign read "Soon to be La Quinta Inn". I wonder when that will happen?
Check-in was quick, and the lady at the front desk was extremely friendly. Having elite status with Club Carlson, I was hopeful for an upgraded room or suite, but I was happy with the room I was given. The lobby was cozy and definitely had a "country" feel, complete with a fire place, couches, and wooden decor. The breakfast room looked spacious, clean, and well-furnished.
The room was simplistically decorated, clean, and cozy. The beds were made with a standard comforter (not my favorite, down), but the sheets and pillows were fresh and soft - perfect for relaxing after a 14 hour drive!
The desk was spacious with a nice leather chair and many outlets to plug in all of your gadgets.
The dresser featured a mini-fridge and microwave inside the pull-out doors as well as a mini flat-screen TV.
The bathroom was stocked with many towels, a hair dryer, and coffee machine (personally, I believe the coffee machine should have been somewhere in the room, not the bathroom, but I'm not a coffee person anyway so I never use the in-room coffee machines).
The shower was clean with plenty of hot water.
A cute towel animal was a nice touch!
Bath toiletries included Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner & Vaseline Body Lotion
