Country Inns & Suites by Carlson Mesa Hotel Review: Just across the street from the massive Superstition Mall, on the far eastern side of the sprawling and generally quiet suburb of Mesa, this hotel is geared for families and business travelers seeking mainstream, affordable lodging. The Country Inn chain, consistent and predictable from coast to coast, doesn't vary in this relatively generic, four-story structure with standard accommodations and amenities. When you check in here, there are no surprises with the possible exception of complimentary bedtime snacks. Rates include breakfast with muffins, hot or cold cereal, a small glass of orange juice, a cup of coffee and "USA Today." There is a whirlpool and exercise room, along with a pool, and kids under 18 stay free with their parents.
