I could not have ask for a better experience. The staff went over and above what we expected. Room was very clean and nice. Breakfast was good, could have been a little better. Will stay the next time I go into Charlotte.

Not bad for the price

I would give it a high 2 stars or low 3. It was OK for the price. Staff was soso. The food was passable. The maid forgot to put towels in the room one day. But the desk gave us towels when we asked. Loudest bathroom fan I've ever heard.

An Aging Property, Misleading Amenities

The amenities listed were: DVD player, Television with cable, Free newspaper, Hairdryer in room, Microwave, Fire alarm with light, In room movies, Sofa bed, Iron, Ironing board, Smoke detectors, Sprinklers in rooms None of the rooms had DVD players or in room movies besides HBO. The King bed rooms had enough room to move around, but the Queen bed rooms were very cramped. There was no sofa bed in any room, as there was no room for one! One King room had a fridge and microwave. The other two rooms had neither. The "fitness center" was a tiny room with a treadmill and little else. Bathroom fixtures were very old and stained and the tub in one room barely drained. The beds were surprisingly comfortable as long as you doubled the pillows. The cable TV signal on the old box TVs was grainy in all three rooms. There was a lot of confusion when we checked in and the front desk person misread our reservation and we ended up switching rooms around a couple times. She worked hard to get it right and seemed sincerely concerned that we were satisfied. In addition to those room switches, we ended up having to swap one of the rooms after discovering the A/C was erratic. Rooms were fairly quiet except when people slammed doors. The place needs some work, but a lot of the problems were that it was built small and it felt tiny and cramped in nearly every corner. Be aware that most of the rooms are just hotel rooms with no separate livingroom. If you are expecting that, based on previous Country Inn stays, you will be disappointed. The breakfast room was the only room we didn't feel cramped in and the breakfast was ok. I would rank this hotel a 2 - 2 1/2 star hotel. Not a 3. The kindness of the staff was welcoming, but not enough to overcome the actual facilities.

Near to airport is best feature

It provided convenience to the Charlotte airport and a good bed in a clean room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. But continental breakfast was poor, shower barely produced water, tv was old, hall carpets worn out, and there was no decent restaurant nearby, just fast food. Packed when flights are cancelled, so no apparent motivation to update, but hot breakfasts are promised for "Jan 2012."

When leaving airport to come to the motel, turn south when you get to I85 at exit/entrance 33 to go to exit 32

okay

Front desk checked me into a room that was already booked. Bathroom was nasty, tub was not recently cleaned and there was some pee on the floor as well as the toilet not flushed. Other than that, not too bad, definitely overpriced though. Bed was comfy, good tv channel selection, quiet.

An OK place to stay short term

I was in Charlotte to give an Internet Security presentation. I had not stayed in a Carlson hotel in many years and decided to give this on a try. This Country Inn & Suites is located near the airport and near a small shopping area plus near 5 places to eat. It has a nice entry area and has most features one would need. The hotel is clean as was my room. The bed was comfortable. I have only one bad thing to say and that is that the toilet in the bathroom is about 3/4 standard size which also makes it be about 3/4 standard heigth. The toilet is also a little close to the wall beside it. The rest of the bathroom is of normal size.
