Stayed here in route to Disney World as I had first done back in 2008. Service at check-in was fine and relatively efficient. When we attempted to enter our assigned room we found the security lock bolted from the inside. Upon return to the front desk, we were assured the room was vacant and a desk clerk first called the...

We have stayed at this location in Lake City a few times during our travels to and from Florida, and have been very satisfied every time. The staff is always friendly, rooms are comfortable and clean, and the breakfast is good. (Don't forget the complimentary cookies, too!) We will continue to stay here on future trips to Florida.

We stayed in this hotel after spending two days on the road and sleeping in the noisiest hotels I have ever experienced. When we arrived I asked for a room opposite the road and my request was honored. This was the best night sleep we had on our trip. The room was very quiet and dark. The staff were friendly... More

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
