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.

I booked this hotel based off of what I read on Trip Advisor. It was right on! What a nice place for the money! The rooms were spotless. Beds were very comfortable with a down like bedding. Breakfast was good! The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because we had a room on second floor and there... More

This was the fourth hotel we stayed in on our holiday around Minnesota. On arrival, the receptionist was very pleasant, asking about our trip so far and talking about the UK. She told us that we were lucky to have the best room in the hotel. The foyer was very pleasant, with complimentary coffee, cookies and sweets. On arriving at... More
