Not good..

Stayed at hotel before Sept 14, since Ramada has taken over it has slide down hill. I have several other trips planned to Huntsville, will not stay there again. Called for a shuttle, they no longer offer the service. Squire was living on my patio deck in the wall. Bathroom door would not close. AC was terrible. Took me 20 minutes to check in because the girl had no clue what she was doing. I acutally talked 3 other people into booking, they were all disappointed. Place has potential, ownership doesn't care.

Family visit

Just a short stay in Huntsville visiting family. Great location for our needs. Nice room, good breakfast. The hallways could use an updating (no big deal). I would stay at this location again.

Okay business

It was adequate for a business trip, did not spend much time there. Breakfast room temperature was too hot, need air conditioning on during the summer months.

Good Value

For the price, the value was good. No issues inside. One night, I did encouter a person pan handling when I was trying to enter my car, however, for the immediate area, that seemed out of character. I would stay there again, it would be nice if there was a hotel bar, even a small one.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

I like to walk for exercise, directly behind the hotel there is a commercial area that is perfect for walking as it gets very quiet after 4pm with very little traffic.

Not the place for a shower...

I'll preface this by saying that I have worked in the hospitality industry in the past; however, my expectations are graded with the brand and fairly modest in general: clean rooms, functional equipment, and minimal errors by employees. I've stayed at Country Inn & Suites several times before and enjoyed it immensely; this particular one was an exception, and I've also noted that it is transitioning to a Ramada. With that said, on with the review... I checked in for 3 nights (business trip) and went to take a shower in the evening. There was an odd dial in the shower (rounded like a shallow, upside-down bowl) that presumably needed to be rotated left or right. When I turned it, there were clicking noises but no water would come out. I called the front desk to report the issue (the room number on the phone was actually different from my real room number). Someone eventually came up (about 30 minutes later, after I had called again) thinking that I just didn't have hot water. No, I didn't have water at all. He confirmed as much and transferred me to another room. In this next room, the water worked well but I had no control over the temperature. It went from very cold to a temperature far more extreme than "hot" -- we're not talking "let me adjust to this hot tub" sort of hot -- we're talking scalding, boiling, hot. At first I thought this swing back and forth was due to minute adjustments I kept making on the dial; then I stopped making the adjustments altogether, and the wild swings in temperature continued (happening on their own). I basically just jumped in and out about 20 times over the course of the shower and used the cold segments to get the soap off of me. This happened the next morning again and throughout the duration of my stay; it was just the way the water worked. On the first night, the bedside alarm went off at 1:00am. I unplugged it and left it unplugged for the duration of my stay. This clock was also off by 15 minutes so it wasn't particularly worthwhile in the first place. It's also worth noting that the sheets had some very disconcerting stains all over them that probably should have been bleached before being put back on the bed. The most frustrating thing, however, was that I was locked out of my room every day I was here. The first day they said it was because I'd switched rooms (even though they'd given me new keys). The next day they said it was because the new keys they'd issued had just been for one day. (Really? You issued new keys without checking to see how long my stay was?) The final day they didn't offer any explanation, but I was checking out so they just let me in and I packed and left. What made this difficult was that the hotel is divided into three different buildings. To get to my room required walking through building one, walking through a courtyard (in freezing weather: it was 17 degrees last night), walking up 3 flights of stairs, scanning my card on the outside of the building, walking down a lengthy hallway, and finally scanning into the room. My hand were full in the evenings with work paperwork from the day and food and drink for the evening. Walking all the way back down just to get new keys for my room each day became a frustrating routine during my stay here. Oh, and the Internet was so slow that it took over two minutes just for google.com to load. Gave up and used my phone's data connection instead of hotel wifi. Here's a pro: the breakfast buffet was pretty good. Still, overall it was not an experience anywhere close to the money I paid for it.
