We wanted access to the Sparta Elroy Bike Trail, but with amenities, like pool, hot tube, cookies and access to town restaurants. This had it all including a great staff. OK OK OK OK OK BLAH BLAH MORE WORDS !!!!! Why a 200 word report?

I chose this hotel because I have stayed at many other Country Inn and Suites and was always very satisfied ( giving others 4 stars) and as a bonus this hotel accepted pets. This was the first time I've traveled overnight with my little dog. While the outside of the hotel looked similar to their other locations something seemed different... More

Very nice staff. Facility was clean. Room said no smoking but could smell stale smoke. Windows would not stay open so no fresh air. Breakfast had oatmeal, fruit, and yogurt along with standard items. Love the healthy options. USA today newspaper was nice to read over breakfast.

We hope that you will come back again and give us another chance to make your stay... More

Went to Sparta to ride the bike trail. The hotel was clean, convenient, and the breakfast came in handy. However, they (like every other Country Inn and Suites I've been to) had FOX News on in every public space - there's no escaping it - even at breakfast - so I guess if your not a GOP conspiracy theorist -...

I booked this hotel over the phone and the service was extremely friendly. The hotel was clean and the breakfast was great! Its a fair price for the quality you receive. We are very happy they allowed pets. We enjoyed a quiet and relaxing stay.

Very nice hotel. Very clean. Staff was excellent. Very friendly and went out of their way. Breakfast was very good and the attendant went out of his way to accomodate us. Free wifi in the rooms. We would definitely stay there again, even though is was a little ways off of I-94.

This was a nice hotel however the room smelled a little musty and could use some updates like new mattresses and carpeting. Did not use the pool area. Breakfast was good. Kathy the front desk clerk was awesome! Very, very nice and helpful.
