8/10 Very good

This is NOT Country Inns and Suites
My bad...I was in a hurry as we were heading out the door and needed a place to stay that night on our 2 day drive to CO. I knew there was a Country Inns and Suites in Council Bluffs, and just assumed this was it when I booked the room. I even drove to the Country Inns to check in when I discovered that I didn't have a reservation there! I was really quite annoyed (pissed, actually) that the name of this hotel was so deceptively close to a different, more upscale hotel (and I'm sure they get lots of travelers like me making this same mistake...I'm surprised Country Inns hasn't filed for trademark infringement...they should!). That said....the staff I dealt with was quite nice, the price was cheap and accommodations were clean and decent, especially for the price. My only complaint was that breakfast was less than appetizing, so we completely skipped that and went elsewhere. Despite that, by the time I left the next morning I was still annoyed but no longer pissed about the mix up, though I am still amazed they are being allowed to have such a similar name...and even a similar logo to Country Inns/Suites! As we drove west, I saw one or two other Countryside Inns/Suites so this is a chain, not just a one-off. Really shocked they're getting away with what amounts to trademark infringement and think they should rename their chain so as not to be so deceptive, unless that is their whole business plan.

It was okay.
Bed was very uncomfortable. Room smelled like someone had smoked in it. Breakfast was good and things were clean. Check in was smooth.
