This hotel doesn't conjure up thoughts of a Country Inn & Suites as it is not in a typical wood structure with a country feel similar to their other properties. It felt really upscale. The rooms were very nice and we took advantage of the outdoor pool, wi-fi and morning breakfasts. The breakfast area is a nice area as well,... More

I made a reservation at a different hotel but after reading the comments for this one I changed my reservation.I looked online to find they had king rooms with a bedroom and that they took dogs.

The hotel is well located and has an excellent atmosphere around it. The staff are very courteous and helpful. Has excellent parking area and it is free along with Hi-Fi and continental breakfast. The breakfast was good and sumptuous. The rooms are spacious with great view all around. It was really a pleasant stay for us.

Staff goes far and beyond. Always cordial and attentive. No problem that they cannot resolve. Promote all of the staff. Few if any problems they cannot resolve. Evening food selections could use some help with the pricing.

Our group of six including three generations and two ten year olds enjoyed the comfortable rooms, the clean modern bathrooms, and the buffet breakfast. Our grandchildren particularly enjoyed the pool and the whirlpool. Since the hotel is near route 805, it is easy to get to many attractions from the hotel. There are many places for dinner near the hotel.
