Stayed here for one night and booked it last minute mainly because there was a sale on Travelocity. Hotel is formerly Country Inn and Suites and it is undergoing renovations. There is a black garbage bag on the outdoor sign because they haven't changed the name yet, there was a smaller sign in the front that said Solstice but we... More

Name of hotel is changed to Solstice. Great location, close to Presque Isle beaches and Waldameer Park. Staff was excellent. I loved the pool. The pool room was warm and the water was about 80 degrees. There were tables and chairs to lounge in and stacks of towels to use. Breakfast was great (donuts, muffins, fruit, waffle machine, eggs and... More

The Country Inn is now the Solstice Inn and it was HORRIBLE!!! The air conditioning in our room didn't work and it was 85 degrees outside and about 80 inside. They had no one available to look at it so they gave us a fan to stick in the window. Our room was next to a busy road so it... More

We were traveling and did not know where we were stopping for the night, so this was a last minute decision, one I greatly regret! After getting our room I noticed there were no smoking signs on many doors, but not on the one we were given. Before we put our things in the room I checked with the front... More

I made reservation approximately 5 months prior to travel dates when hotel was still Country Inn & Suites. When I received confirmation 2 weeks out from travel day there was a note saying hotel was under renovation. After looking up info on tripadvisor.com I learned that the hotel had changed to Solstice. To ease my mind I called to confirm... More

We stopped here on a trip to Canada. I usually love Country Inn and Suites, but this was not the usual experience. In fact, this is converting to another brand, Solstice by Chase Hotel Group. I've never heard of this, but I'm not impressed. The hotel is still being renovated, and there is no sign or evidence outside of the... More
