First time I ever stayed a Country Inn & Suites. Surprised by how nice and clean everything was. Desk clerk was extremely friendly and helpful. Very good hot breakfast. Nice swimming pool and exercise room. Very close to many restaurants and shopping. Great experience for me. Will definitely stay again.

Clean with a friendly staff. Exit is full of dining options. Only negative is the typical hotel breakfast...would highly recommend this as a safe clean stop in Northern Florida just off of interstate 75. Third floor room was very quiet. Shower was high pressure and awesome after long drive.

We stayed there twice in Dec 2014. This is a nice hotel with nice people doing their best--but there's always room for improvement. I happened to be at the front desk when some regulars checked in and complained their bottled water and snacks were not bedside. Poor them. But when I asked for some bottled water too, I was denied... More

Cozy. Really, that’s the best word that comes to mind for the Country Inn and Suites in Lake City. The property has a warm, inviting lobby featuring an open staircase to the second floor. The location is great, conveniently located near plenty of dining options and the interstate, though you have to drive down an access road off the main... More

We stayed here enroute to South Florida for the Orange Bowl. The front office staff so kindly called me on the morning of our departure and offered us a room that not only saved us money but was more accomodating to my partially handicapped status. When we got there we were greeted professionally. The room was neat and clean. Checkout... More

Quick stay on Christmas Eve while traveling to SW Florida. Staff was friendly. Most important the hotel was clean and the bed comfortable. Free hot breakfast provided. I used a coupon from information center and only paid $69 for the night. Great value!

The day we reserved our room we were assured that there were first floor rooms available and we would get one. The day before we arrived we called to make sure and they confirmed first floor would be available.

I chose this hotel after reading all the great reviews which lead to my disappointment after checking in to my room. The room was a queen with two beds, a desk with chair, fridge, and microwave. There was a large area were an additional chair(s) may have once been placed. We had 4 family members so the only place to... More

My husband and I stayed at the Country Inn & Suites while driving down to Florida for the winter. The hotel is very clean, the staff friendly and the rooms comfortable. They also have a very nice continental breakfast.

Located on I-75 at the top of Florida, so it was a nice place to stop on the way to Disney World. Pros: Inexpensive. Country-themed hotel. Clean! Spacious rooms. Comfy beds. Friendly staff. Free Full breakfast. Cons: Bathrooms need updating, aged.
