"For the price, not the best."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The TV had a horrible picture, one of the beds had stains on the bedspread, you could not tell what temp you had the AC/heat on because the display numbers did show and you couldn't set it to high/low etc. The breakfast was nothing but cold cereal and other cold it's. Not much at all. The hotel could use some upgrading.

"Helped"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
So Country Inn and Siutes we had reservations.. arrived and they told us they were over sold. Received NO notification from them… Quality Inn next door saved the day as we traveled three hours thinking we had a room. They graciously took us in and at a better rate. Quality Inn came to the rescue!

"Decent Rooms Service Severely Lacking."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel itself, the grounds and Rooms were all of acceptable quality and reasonably clean. Unfortunately, the customer service was extremely disappointing. After initially being told the room I pre paid for was no longer available and I needed to upgrade to a suite, they suddenly "found a room available". Eventually got my room key and was then promptly left waiting for five mins before the representative tells me "oh there's no receipt you can leave now". During my two night stay I checked the front desk four times to see about fixing one of the cards which had stopped working and there was never an attendant at the desk. I sincerely hope this location can find some better help, as I was nothing more than pleased with every aspect of my stay aside from the customer service. Thank you.

"Get the jacuzzi room!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My wife and I came up to Boone for a wedding to find this hotel really clean. We got a room with the heart shaped jacuzzi and it was awesome! Great way to unwind in your own room. When we checked into our room, we tested the jacuzzi to see if it worked (always do this with any amenity like this) and found that the jets didn't work. The hotel quickly moved us to another room that was operable and we were fully content. It's also conveniently close to downtown App and other shops and restaurants. We absolutely come here again and highly recommend!
