We were satisfied with all the past stays at this motel. We have been staying at a variety of motel/hotels /cabins in this area for the past 48 years so we have experienced the good and the not so good. We are happy that we decided to stay at the Country Inn and Suites. We will be staying there on... More

The hotel was conveniently located and clean. The staff was efficient and friendly. The hot tub and pool were used by the whole family. We would definately stay at this and any other Country Inn and Suites again.

We stayed at this hotel for Thanksgiving this year. We had a two-room suite on the second floor. The room was nice and quiet. The trains passing by weren't that bothersome to us. The bed was very comfortable. The other room had a nice couch, with a hideaway bed. It was a little low to the floor which made it... More

The hotel was not up to the country inn standard. This property was very poorly maintained and was needing total rehab. Everything was tired and shop worn. The breakfast was not as good as compared to other Country Inn suites I have stayed in in the past.

The staff was oblivious to people smoking at the end of the hall and in the adjacent non-smoking rooms. They also had no idea that doors were slamming and people were loud and abnoxious at 3:00 in the morning.

We choose this hotel in part because I knew that they offered hot breakfast (other than waffles) and an array of other breakfast/snacks that keep us full for our day outings. My one issue was on Saturday morning at breakfast I noticed this lady come into the breakfast area as if she came in just to check what was being... More

Our room was nice and clean and we were greeted with fresh baked cookies and fruit. Nice touch. The breakfast was ok but the selection was less than other Country Inn and Suites that I have stayed in. BUT, the internet access was terrible. My iPad which was wireless constantly quit randomly and you never knew when it would start... More

This hotel was fine. Nothing remarkable. The staff was great, however, and very helpful with dinner advice. There were laundry services available which was very much needed and the breakfast was nicely done. It was clean but dated. There were a LOT of trains, but they didn't blow horns all night so it was OK.
