good hotel

The only thing that I noticed about my particular room was that the carpet needed updating and the fire alarm was hanging off the wall. Other than that , great stay, was clean , and breakfast was good.

Old hotel, room reeked of cigarettes

The staff was very friendly. That is the only thing positive I can say about this hotel. We requested a non-smoking room. While there was a non-smoking sign on the door the room smelled like it had been smoked in for 20 years. The included breakfast is not worth it if you're at all health conscious.

Fully meets expectations

Solid value for money. Clean and comfortable. Real cofffeemaker in the room (not the ones with tiny plastic trays for teabag sized coffee bags), along with fridge. Generally quiet. Small indoor pool was extremely popular with kids and families. Convenient to all the stores and restaurants clustered at Harbison, yet safely removed from their traffic. Only problem was that every afternoon of our 3 night stay, it seemed that our keycards quit working. So when we came back to the hotel at night, we couldn't get in the room, then had to trudge back to the front desk to get the keys re-programmed. Front desk staff never seemed surprised, and didn't even offer an apology for the inconvenience.

WEEKEND GETAWAY

Very nice hotel, appears to be new. the high ceilings give the rooms a feeling of more space. The location is central to the shopping and downtown areas within a short drive to either. My wife and I enjoyed the large flat screen tv in the evening and had an ample breakfast each morning,

Graduation Day Fort Jackson

We constantly had to ask for more towels even though the staff knew how many people were staying. The whirlpool was blackish & dirty looking....we couldn't use the hottub...dirty & the jets would only work once. The last morning, one of the staff was at the front desk and she made a scene about something while the person working was trying to speak to a customer on the phone. The staff person was not working at the time and she was asked to leave several times. The woman working apologized and the other worker then apologized, but wouldn't leave from the desk. This went on for about half an hour or so. Kind of frightening.....

Well worth the price

The hotel was conviently located and anyplace you would want to go to was easy to access. The staff was very courteous from the time we arrived till we checked out. The room had plenty of room and well kept. When were back in the area we will be sure to stay here and Country Inn will be my first choice where ever im at. Way to go Country Inn, well worth the price!
