BEWARE- All 3 of us did NOT stay here. Refund was claimed to be guaranteed to be provided. Credit Card. The Best thing is do not trust the management at this facility. Its very unfortunate that a place like this can actually operate like this.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times and will not do so again. Our last trip to this hotel was so disappointing. The room was tired looking. The staff looked tired and uninterested. The breakfast was tasteless. No more yogurt, or fresh fruit. The waffles tasted like cardboard. This is the last time I will stay here.

We thought we had made a reservation at the Country Inns & Suites hotel. We arrived at night and drove up and down the street trying to find the place. We stopped at the only hotel-like building that didn't have a sign out front and found out that the owners had changed the hotel to Solstice. The change-over happened in... More

After reading all the reviews we were a little scared to stay there. I had booked under the Country Inn and Suites brand cause we had stayed there many times in the past so I knew where it was . It was the first week in September and the hotel was fine. Rooms were great , bed was comfortable .... More

Just stayed 2 nights with the kids. Stayed on the first floor and everything went great! Price was good, breakfast was fine, room beds were good, we had a good stay so we will most likely return! We weren't expecting anything more than average but it did live up to our expectations as a family traveling together!

Very dissappointed that Booking.Com had pictures of a Hot Tub and that Hot Tub hasn't been there for over a year. Shame on Booking.Com! The staff and assistant manager were AMAZING and did everything they could to make our weekend getaway memorable! They went above and beyond as they knew how dissappointed we were over the false advertising. Kudos to... More

We booked the Country Inn and Suites for one night prior to the Presque Isle half marathon. We were very familiar with Country Inn and Suites so we booked with confidence. At no time prior to our arrival were we informed that the property was sold and that it was now under a new name, Solstice. We had a general... More

Several people have made some pretty negative comments about this place over the past couple of months. Here's my impression of the place based on a one night stay on September 12. We booked this hotel via Hotwire, so I had no idea we'd be booking into Solstice before it was too late to do anything about it. Solstice is... More
