Not impressive over the top. Reminded me of what the Comfort Inn's used to be in years past. The front desk staff was the best part of my stay. Every one of the front desk staff was super friendly and a joy to see every day. However, my room was not cleaned daily. I was there for 3 days and... More

The reservation process was very easy with simple call to the front desk. The hotel staff are kind and polite. They know the area very well and have great recommendation on the local restaurants. The rooms are clean and modern.

I always try to book the Country inn for my trips to Ft. Dodge. This time the weekend rates ($160 per night) were substantially higher than I've paid in the past. I was very pleased with the overall experience except for price & hauling suitcases upstairs (no elevator). The freshly baked cookies were fantastic.

I stayed at Country Inn Fort Dodge when I was there for business. It it probably the top hotel in town (though the Holiday Inn Express & Suites down the block will probably take that title when it opens in a month), but it was nothing special. It looks like pretty much every other Country Inn everywhere in the country,... More

The Country Inns & Suites was a comfortable, quiet hotel. The only thing I didn't care for was the unusable internet speeds (wi-fi only). If all you need to do online is check your email and news, you are all set here.

I chose this hotel due to location. Close to ICCC where I hosted 3 training classes. The check in was good, room was clean, however, dated. Bed was extremely uncomfortable, rock hard. Staff was friendly and professional.

The hotel was pretty good and the rooms nice and spacious. However, we had to call out for the front desk staff to check-in AND check-out after waiting for awhile. Breakfast was good with a nice selection of hot and cold items, and the staff kept things well-stocked and clean. Didn't try the pool or hot tub but it looked... More

I wasn't sure what to expect, however this hotel was a great choice. It's not very big, which made it feel like a home away from home. The rooms were nice sized and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The kids loved the pool ! I will definitely stay here again!

The rooms, lobby and pool area of the hotel were very clean and comfortable and the staff was always courteous and responsive to our requests. The kids loved playing in the nice sized pool. The only downfall was the breakfast buffet, which, although far from gourmet, was a wonderful offering. However, the upkeep of the buffet -- keeping food and... More
