There was a Club Carlson promotion during our road trip, stay at a Radisson and a Country Inn and Suites you received a heap of points. I think it was 50,000 for the Radisson and 44,000 for the Country Inn and Suites stay. I was in for this one!!!!!!
So for our first night stay (and 44,000 points) was Country Inn and Suites in Brookfield, Wisconsin. There is a grocery store around the corner from the hotel and an Outback Steakhouse connected to the hotel. We needed to grab groceries for lunches and then ate at the Outback. Very convenient!
The hotel staff was very nice, the pool area was very nice. It was a great looking hotel, and even though I had read some mixed reviews I was happy with the start of the evening. Daughter swam, we went for dinner and came back to crazy town. Sports groups of boys ages 8-13 had begun to gather in mass at the hotel.
I wasn’t worried, we had stayed with sports teams before. But then it went from bad to worse, the male chaperones parked themselves out on the front porch with drinks. And the youngsters were running wild in the halls and at the pool. It was crazy enough that Daughter asked to go back to the room and leave the pool area. There was no supervision that night. It was banging doors and running through the halls well past 11pm. The front desk apologized at check out when I mentioned it but I would not recommend anyone stay at this location if teams continue to use it.
We survived breakfast with the young people, we ate in our room instead of trying to find a table. The stay earned me 44,000 points so that is a little comfort but it was one of our worst guest stays.
