Check in staff was excellent, quick and easy. Room was very clean and I found it to be very comfortable in every aspect. Location was great as I was traveling through on business, easy in and out of the parking lot. Staff suggested the restaurant next door and the food was great. Morning breakfast was very good with plenty of... More

Stayed in a 1 bedroom suite using cash + points. Layout of room was typical for CIS with separate bedroom. I especially liked the 'constant fan' button on the A/C to keep the air moving when in between cooling cycles. A separate, thin blanket was also provided which I used to replace the duvet that traps body heat and suffocates... More

While traveling for business with two other colleagues, we chose to stay at the Country Inn Grand Rapids based on the Trip Advisor reviews and were exceptionally happy with the experience. When we arrived, Connie happily greeted us at the front desk and assisted us with our reservations. Due to an error on our end, they lacked the proper documentation... More

No elevator. Hard to climb stairs with arthritis. Wish there was ice machine on all floors not just first floor. Good breakfast selection both hot and cold. Breakfast area very warm. Mentioned to the staff that they needed a spoon for the county gravy and that the cinnamon and caramel rolls were out. She brought out a spoon but no... More

Thank you for your feedback and for taking the time to write about your experience. We are sorry about the fact that we do not have a elevator, we are only 2 stories so it makes it a tough decision to have one or not. If ever traveling the area in the future please ask for a lower level room,... More

The beds were super comfortable and soft. I understand they are updating the bedding on all the rooms and we were fortunate to get one. Without even asking the staff made sure we had a good, quiet room overlooking the grounds and not the parking lot. Breakfast was on the light side, but enough to hold you over for a... More

The hotel was great, rooms were clean and comfy. Breakfast was above average. There were a group of us (17) all 50+. We were sitting at tables close to the check in area. We were visiting and eating supper. I'll admit that with all of us, it was loud. One male employee "Josh" was very rude when he told us... More

This hotel was easy to find and convenient to the major shopping area. This Country Inn was right next door to the Judy Garland Museum. The morning breakfast was good and the hotel swimming pool was nice. If I went back to Grand Rapids I would stay here again.
