Have always trusted Country Inns and Suites to provide a good stay. The room was clean and quiet despite being on the first floor and so near the lobby. Very minor damage to the countertop was the only thing that I saw in the otherwise comfortable room. The front desk staff were friendly and professional. Housekeeping staff were also friendly...

Thank you for staying with us! There is a lot of rich music history in the area and I am glad that you had a chance to experience some of it. Try to keep the ghosts out at the crash site if you would please. More

We stayed here mid July 2015, though we've stayed here often the last 6+ years. It's kind've a drive from downtown MC where my mom lives, but it's such a nice place it's worth a little driving; and since we usually drive out to Clear Lake it's nice to have our hotel in between. The place is always clean and... More

I had booked through hotels.com, which did not give a true room description of the room I was booking, but the hotel clerks, made it right, no problems there, staff was very polite, and room was amazing, and bed was very comfy. I enjoyed the breakfast and the hotels internet was actually descent.

My request for high floor, quiet location was honored without prompting. Room was spacious, clean & very quiet. Heard nothing all night. Bed was very comfortable. A/C unit was also quiet, with continuous fan option I like for white noise. Good choices for breakfast. Would stay here again.

Spent the whole month there and had an excellent stay. Clean well kept rooms.Good sound proofing, heard very little outside noise. Good breakfast onsite and several restaurants nearby. Very helpful staff. Would stay there again. Parking lot usually full in the morning so plan ahead.

Our friends made the reservations (accidentally, through Expedia) and that meant that we did not a handicap accessible room. We found this out upon arrival. Because the hotel has no record of what was reserved they also cannot make any changes. Rene, the night manager was extremely helpful in moving a recliner into a regular room so that I had... More
