This is a moderate hotel with clean, comfortable rooms and a very friendly, helpful staff. The fitness room was well appointed and the breakfast area was large with good variety. Pleasant stay. The only downfall was the WiFi which didn't work 100%.

I've stayed at Country Inns before... More

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.
