I stopped over at this hotel on my way through virginia and was very impressed with the staff. They are all very friendly and did everything they could to make me feel welcome. The breakfast in the morning was excellent (eggs and bacon and waffles, etc) and my bed was comfortable. They are also in a great location with many... More

Horrible Country Inn. The manager Brad was absolutely CHILDISH. I filed a complaint because they had to move me TWICE due to their rooms being FILTHY!!!!! And he had the nerve to BLAME me for his employees not doing their job. Example: I had a pet and he wants to charge me for Brittany placing me in a non-pet room???????... More

I am sincerely embarrassed and disappointed with the outcome of your stay with us. Having a guest be unhappy with one of our guestrooms and having to move is absolutely unacceptable and I apologize that you were forced to go through that. I also want to personally apologize for any confusion regarding our pet policy, as we certainly welcome our... More

At $86. one of the cheapest in area. This hotel was clean and up to date. Friendly staff. Microwave and Refridgerator. Large room and bathroom. I can think of absolutely nothing to complain about. I do not understand where other guests are rating this "3".. Compared with the other prices in the area, this place is a bargain!!

We stayed in this hotel while visiting Fredericksburg. It was only about 10 miles north. Check in was easy and the desk clerk was very friendly. We had a king Jacuzzi suite (Room 121). Our room was on the first floor and the frist thing we noticed was the smell of smoke in the corridor leading to our room. All... More

This was an OK property for its price segment, fairly clean but lacked many things to be a 4 star property. If you’re comparing it to other low/mid grade properties like LaQunita or Baymont Inn it may get 4 stars only because you’ve lowered the bar. At ~$100.00+ a night, it’s not on par with the Hampton Inns and Fairfield... More

The Country Inn in Stafford Virginia was not that bad at all. Hotel Staff were friendly and the complementary breakfast was above average. Smoking is allowed in a few rooms so the hallways tend to smell. Very quiet and the room was comfortable and clean. However, it the hotel needs an upgrade due to age. Overall, my experience was pleasant... More

Stayed one night on our way home to North Carolina from New England. We did not have a reservation, but they were able to accommodate us with a choice of king or 2 queens. We opted for the king that was on the first floor 111. The room was clean and fresh smelling though we noticed up in the left... More

I can't speak highly enough of the manager, David, the staff and our stay. They went out of their way to accommodate an early check-in. We had driven all night from MI for the OCS graduation. We stayed 2 nights and had 2 rooms. The rooms were clean, the queen beds were very comfortable, the air conditioner worked great and... More
