This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Country Inns & Suites By Carlson. All opinions are 100% mine.

In my last post on this subject, I talked about vacations, the call of the road, and the love of travel. We all need to leave home behind sometimes, right?

But what about those times where a little touch of home is what you need when traveling? Business and professional travelers often don’t have the option of choosing when (or where) they will go, or how long they will be gone. No matter where those travels take you, Country Inns and Suites will be there with a caring, consistent experience, where business travelers can unwind in comfort and still stay productive while on the road. And, with over 470 locations, there is probably one waiting for you at your next stop.


Country Inns and Suites offers a number of amenities that help guests feel at home and experience a welcoming, comfortable stay. To start the day, there is a “Be Our Guest” breakfast served hot every morning. Grab and go options are available, but those who have a few moments will definitely want to explore the rotating hot options. Think: omelets, breakfast burritos, waffles, and more, all served on real dining ware. Most rooms also include a refrigerator and a microwave, so you can keep yourself fed, any time.


To help you stay moving there is a fitness center, to help you stay productive there is a business center (for printing, etc.), and to help you stay informed there is a free weekly paper, and of course there is free wifi for both business and leisure travelers to help you stay connected. To help you stay entertained, they offer a unique amenity: a Read It and Return It Lending Library, where guests can take advantage of Country Inns and Suites’ partnership with Penguin Random House. Choose from a large selection of book titles to borrow and return at your leisure.

Oh yeah, and I can’t forget the free cookies and coffee in the lobby.

For those that love (or need) to fly, Country Inns and Suites is giving travelers one more reason to Book Now: starting April 15, they launched a “Double the Fun” offer. Guests who book a stay at any Country Inns & Suites location and provide their airline membership detail at check-in can earn double points or miles through four different participating airlines.

Members of the following loyalty programs will be eligible for those extra benefits: Southwest Airlines members can earn Double Rapid Rewards from March 1 through May 31, 2015. From April 15 through June 30, 2015, American Airlines, United Airlines, and Air Canada members can earn double miles.
