This hotel is easy to get to and has very clean rooms. The overall facility is very welcoming and the rooms are very quiet. I rarely hear any hallway or door slamming noises. Their pool and spa area was recently renovated and is one of the best lay-outs around. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Grand Rapids.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean, hotel was quiet, breakfast was well stocked, pool and hot tub area was clean. Breakfast area was in a separate room, not in the lobby so not by the door/front desk commotion. Loved the fresh baked caramel rolls. If in the area we would definitely stay here again. To top...

This is the second time I have stayed at Country Inn and Suites in Grand Rapids. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the staff are all very pleasant and helpful. The only drawback is that you have to leave the hotel to work out, but the Anytime Fitness they partner with is only 1/2 mile away, so... More

I spent 41 days and nights at this hotel. There was always consistent, excellent service and the guests were always well treated and respected. It would be difficult to imagine a better place to stay in the area (or elsewhere). The value was excellent. The service I received rivaled hotels I have stayed at with prices much higher.

This hotel was very clean, and even had home baked cookies for the guests! The amenities were very nice, and staff was courteous and kind. The breakfast was better than a lot I have had at other hotels.

It was what I expect from a Country Inns "& Suites, with a little extra - fresh baked caramel rolls with breakfast on Saturday morning. It's pet friendly, but I didn't see (or smell) any signs of pets. I'd definitely stay here again.

Excellent staff, clean room, and fulfilling breakfast. Very reasonably priced for what you receive. Between the 'Judy Garland Museum' a must do for Wizard of Oz fans, and a wonderful restaurant 'Cedars'. Very nicely priced and wonderful servers. Wonderful experience. Would do it again. And will definitely recommend Country Inn and Suites.

The city has alot to offer in terms of recreational activities and Pokegama Lake is near by.The hotel allows small dogs and there is a field in the area for... More
