Stopped here on our way to the Skynyrd concert in Orlando. Very professional and courteous staff. We were treated as special guests, even though we are just everyday common folks. Rooms are large, quiet, and clean. We felt safe and secure staying here. After all isn't that what it's all about; being safe and secure. Skynyrd was checking out as... More

This was our first stay at Country Inn & Suites. Check in was easy, fast, and all our questions were cheerfully answered. Our room was large, well furnished and sparklingly clean. The front desk clerk made a great recommendation for a restaurant close to the hotel and made sure we had directions. After dinner we found the bed linen and... More

We love Country Inn & Suites & always look for one when on the road. Have stayed here @ Lake City couple times on way to Orlando. Front desk was staffed by man & woman during early evening check-in. They were nice enough to look up my Carlton # which took several minutes but there was no one else waiting... More

We reserved a king suite, which was a king bed with sofa bed. The hotel was completely booked due to GatorNationals. I was surprised when I checked in and overheard that the hotel still has smoking rooms. Thankfully we did not receive one, but the elevator smelled of smoke, as did some areas in the hallways. Our room was large,... More

Upon arriving at the hotel without a reservation, I wanted to use some of my Gold Points to pay for the room. The manager, Klaudia Lapham, facilitated this happening even though I was supposed to have made a reservation in order to use the points. She was most pleasant and helpful. And, as always, Country Inn and Suites provided quality... More

Rooms are large and ours were clean. Shower water pressure was excellent and hot water was consistent. Despite the no smoking signs, the entire third floor hallway reeked of cigarette smoke. However, our rooms did not. Still, we woke up with an allergic respiratory reaction to the smoke. Why can't smokers adhere to the rules and take their smokes outside?... More

We just took 3 days traveling from Northern, mi to Long Key, fl. We stayed every night in a Country Inn & Suites by Calson. All of them were so nice, but this one in Lake City, Fl, was "brand new", and totally one of the nicest . Also with AAA discount, you got plenty for your money. I loved... More

The General Manager of this hotel (Klaudia L.) truly does not know how to treat guests.
