Oklahoma City is a great city to visit. I never really knew it until I got there and saw it for myself. Part of what makes a family vacation successful is the lodging being comfortable, clean and family friendly. The Country Inns and Suites is a great home base for exploring the OKC area.
Part of what made this Country Inn so great for me is the manager, Collette. She truly cares about her customer’s needs and goes out of her way to make your stay a pleasant one. The property itself is very nice and close to the OKC airport (without the noise of the airport). Speaking of the airport, there is complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport which makes life that much easier.
As with every Country Inn, this one served a tasty complimentary breakfast (and free homemade cookies!!!) which is a huge perk when traveling with children. They can eat their bowl of cereal from the comfort of the room while watching cartoons or down in the breakfast room with the other guests.
What kid doesn’t want to swim in a pool when they stay at a hotel? This Country Inn has an indoor pool which is great for when the weather won’t cooperate. There is also a fitness center for all you crazy people who like to exercise while on vacation.
We stayed in a suite which is so nice to have when traveling with kids. It was very nicely furnished and gave us plenty of room to spread out. As with every Country Inn I have stayed at, the beds were incredibly comfortable. Families with babies and toddlers will appreciate the cribs available upon request. Another great feature of this property is that it is an entirely non-smoking property. I HATE to get into my room and be stifled by the smell of stale cigarette smoke. I certainly don't want to subject my children to that either.
If you have time, take a look at their Read it and Return library. Its such a great idea a wonderful way to get some free reading done while on vacation. If you are a news junkie like me, take advantage of that free USA Today!
Another great feature is the onsite laundry. If your kids have a tendency to get stains on everything they wear, be sure to use the laundry facilities during your stay so you don’t run out of clean clothes.
The free high speed internet was a HUGE PLUS for me since I am a travel writer and the internet is my lifeline. Nothing bugs me more than a fancy hotel that charges $20 for internet. Wireless internet is always complimentary for guests at Country Inns and Suites properties.
Overall I give this hotel 5 stars as a family friendly hotel because it really does fit the needs of the average family extremely well and does it with friendly staff and quality amenities. If you have plans to be in OKC, definitely consider this hotel.
Disclosure: We received a complimentary stay at this hotel as part of our family’s participation in the 1K Country Adventure which was sponsored by Country Inns & Suites By Carlson. I was never asked to express any particular opinion about their hotels and all of my reviews will always be my honest opinion.
