Historical Traveler Reviews Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Roanoke
Well Managed Property
The other Tripadvisor reviews pretty much have it right. I would add that this is one of the best managed properties of its kind in my experience. It's not new but the rooms are clean and spacious, the staff is friendly and informative, everything works, and the no-smoking rooms are completely smoke free. It's a really good choice.
Great hotel for work travel
Perfect for business travel- front desk personnel were efficient & friendly, wi-fi was great, plenty of outlets & lighting. Bathroom very large and clean. Hotel was very quiet. Did not use the pool but it looked nice. Best thing was the free breakfast- who needs anything more than what they had here as below reviews state. In this area regularly on business and would not stay anywhere else.
This was are first time staying at a Country Inn and Suites. This trip to Roanoke, Va. was for fun. I haven't been to Roanoke, Va. since the late 80's. My girlfriend had made reservations with another hotel 40+ miles to the north of Roanoke at a Days Inn. And the night before are trip I did some checking and found that this Hotel was next to a Truck stop which to me could have been a problem. I found this out by going on Google and downloading a satellite photo of the area. And as we drove towards Roanoke, Va. I had downloading several different hotel choices in Roanoke. Are trip was also to go see someone (GRAD) from college in Lexington, Va. so we had tryed to get a Hotel closer but all the good ones had been taken are were to much. I then with the help of my Girlfriend came up with the (COUNTRY INN AND SUITES) hotel I called via my cell phone. And was told they had rooms and the cost after AAA would be right at $98.00 dollars with tax. When we arrived it was before check in and right before we went to are room. I asked the young man where was a good Seafood Resturant for some fried trout. He told us the Harbor Inn which he gave us directions. We got to are room and it had a living area with tables and sofa, Ref, and Microwave oven and several dressing mirrors. The a/c was cold and the bed being a king was very good. And we stayed for 4 days from May 30th thru the 3rd of June 2006. The staff at this hotel was very young but knew a lot. And the hotel had a inclosed swimming pool with Jacuzzi. And a computer with printer any guest could use up in the lobby area. The Continental Breakfast was very good they had frozen pork links, omelettes, and hard boiled eggs out of the shells. Toast, bagels and a bagel cutter grits, oatmeal, juices, and so many other things. But the best thing was the waffles that you the guest would pour the batter onto the waffle iron and when done you had a hot fresh waffle to go with your meal. This Hotel is a TEN IN MY BOOK Thanks.
I stayed here while my son had and overnight at Roanoke College. Staff was outgoing and helpful. The whirlpool and hot-tub are set in a spacious room with a cathedral ceiling and huge windows with a pretty view of the mountains. My hotel room was large and clean and quiet. I liked how it had a full bathroom plus a seperate sink with mirror. The breakfast in the morning was better then average and included cold cereal, make-your-own Belgian waffles, biscuits and some pastries. The breakfast room was quite large and families could spread out. Location was a little out of the way for Roanoke College (which is actually in Salem) but perfect for people visiting nearby Hollins College or vacationing in Roanoke.
What a pleasant surprise! A comfortable friendly hotel. Comfortable rooms. Nice public areas. Beautiful pool. Best self-service breakfast we've had at any hotel. One person had to hang around the hotel by themselves for half of a day. No problem. The hotel atmosphere is that nice. Good restaurants nearby, too.
Very nice place
We stayed at this hotel the night of November 18th. Those who have given this Inn positive reviews are right on the money. The beds and bathroom were above average. Nice sized complimentary breakfast. We weren't there long enough to enjoy the fitness center, the pool, or free internet, but all were advertised. Free cookies at the check-in counter was a nice touch. If you see this hotel being advertised for a price that you like, book it. It is clean, comfortable, and a solid buy for the money.
Loved this chain!
We stayed at this hotel on 7/24/05. It was our first stay at a Country Inn & Suites, and we were hooked. The rooms were clean and large. The indoor pool was great after a hard day of driving. The free breakfast buffett was plentiful and yummy. One of the few hotels that offer queen size beds these days.
In general, I really like Country Inns & Suites, and this hotel was no exception. Nice, cozy lobby. The front desk agent was pleasant enough, helping me locate a local restaurant. Complimentary cookies at the front desk were a nice touch. Our room was large and well appointed with no cleanliness issues whatsoever. All areas of the hotel were in top-notch condition and everthing looked new and fresh. Complimentary breakfast was above average with belgain waffles, a large assortment of breads and pastries, cereals, juices, etc. Express departure service was convenient with the bill under the door in the morning. Overall, I would definately stay here again without hesitation. I think County Inns & Suites have perfected the "feels like home" atmosphere and I love the concept. Happy travels!
The room was very large, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was very large and clean. Nice breakfast in the morning.
Great Inn for the Price
Great place to stay overnight when travelling to and from on the I-81 corridor in Virginia. Excellent complimentary breakfast. Clean and well maintained. Excellent vaule for the money

Long travel day today, got in at 3:45pm. Was actually on Blue Ridge Parkway for little bit, then it got REALLY interesting. LOVE this campsite. We are actually sitting outside voluntarily at 4pm and enjoying it. Still humid but wonderfully cooler. Fireflies! Babbling brook sounds soooo ...

Wildlife we saw: turtles and otters in Otter Lake, deer, and a snake named Carl. (Snake's name courtesy of Forest Ranger.)

... I took the forest scissors and considered them a tribute from the trail for my perseverance. I was ready for laundry and a shower after being pretty much constantly damp since Pearisburg in the ever-present humidity, and I was looking forward to a dip in the motel pool. Sadly, the pool was being filled that day, so we couldn't swim, but just being clean and comfortable was good enough. I woke up early the next morning because it was finally time to seam seal my tent. After ...
What a great day hanging out in this city!!!
