This hotel is a notch above the local competition. From professional and courteous staff to great breakfast to clean and well soundproofed rooms (I think), it is definitely worth a couple bucks more than the cheaper alternatives.

Friendly staff and comfy beds make this a great place to stay. We stay here a couple of times a year to visit our college age daughter. We have always been happy with this hotel. Clean, and close to everything we need.

We were a little worried when we walked in because there was a kids birthday party going on in the breakfast area and they were very loud. By the time we checked in they were all in the pool area yelling and screaming, throwing balls etc. Once we got settled and ate they were done in the pool area and... More

The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the breakfast area is big enough. Has a full breakfast and was kept stocked at all times. They also have great homemade cookies for all to enjoy.

Country Inn & Suites in Big Rapids, Michigan, is an excellent facility. Professional, friendly, responsive staff and clean, comfortable, well-maintained rooms. This is in a beautiful area of Michigan with lots of things to do, and Ferris State University is located there. Near lakes, the Muskegon River, and lots of others activities.

It is off US-131 right next to Meijer, so if you forget anything, Meijer is right next door. We had a whirlpool room for $150. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a nice size for a hotel and was clean. The jacuzzi was EXCELLENT! I have no complaints about the room whatsoever -... More

The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. The breakfast was ok. The biscuits were not fresh, but I'm pretty sure it was because we got up at the end of the breakfast time. I will stay here again for sure!

Very nice and well kept landscaping! Extra friendly staff - very welcoming! Rooms are very clean - they take great pride in their hotel. Breakfast is fantastic! The rate is reasonable and very close to college and shopping. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great stay. Pool and internet are also a big plus!!

My stay was very satisfying. The facility was clean, quite and pleasant to stay at. The people were friendly and very accommodating. Very easy access to and from the hotel with a wide variety of restaurants near by. Ferris State University is only 1 1/2 miles down the road and the there are many parks to walk or jog.
