I don't travel much but I also don't have any loyalty towards one hotel chain versus another. We decided to sleep the night after a long day at the NC State Zoo at the Country Inn and Suites in Kannapolis, North Carolina. Hotels outside the city limits of major cities (in our case Charlotte) are a little less expensive and parking is usually easier. I also liked how there weren't many floors. I saw some hotels in Atlanta that remind me that I am afraid of heights.
This was our room a few minutes after arriving. The stuff on the bed was our's, so the room was really clean when we walked in. The room was really cold, but since I live in a hot house (saves energy) I felt like I was in a freezer. So we had to turn it down. But to be honest, that's the strongest A/C I've felt in quite some time, so for those who like it cool, you'd love it. The bathroom was also really nice and I had no issues out of it. TV and cable was typical for any hotel.
At breakfast, they served a complementary one. Since I had left-over food from the night before, that became my breakfast (I hate wasting food) but Daisy got a few things. I was tempted to get some cereal there but the only milk available was low-fat and skim, and that's disgusting as anything but whole milk is water pretending to be milk.
