We just had an overnight stay there while traveling to south FL the other day. The property is pretty easy to find an the overall impression is very nice. The personal is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are great as mostly at Country Inn & Suits. You won't miss the breakfast. Almost european style. Very good coffee. We would stay there again and choose this Hotel as our No. 1 at Lake City - esp. for its value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for backside - not front because it's located only a few yards away from I-95

They don't mind if you have more than one cookie and the cookies are so good. The breakfast bar was manned by TWO people who really kept things filled up and clean. I like that they had french toast and cut up fresh fruit. Would stay there again when I am passing through.

My family & I Travel to Florida every February from Canada. And we have stayed in many different Country Inns ,in many other states. This hotel is by far the BEST! I only wish that all the others were as good, the staff are excellent, the rooms are great and the lady who looks after the breakfast bar always makes sure there is plenty of hot food, and if you are into fitness they have the most updated equipment anywhere. We will be back again in 2014 and we look forward to seeing you and your staff again Klaudia.

Friends joined us for a night in Lake City, FL. With a bedroom and pull out in the living room we had a nice setup for $139. Staff were exceptionally friendly, the free breakfast was served with real dishes and silverware, and the king size bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was inbetween the two rooms and there was a television in each room.

As a sales person I do a lot of travel for business. I have stayed at several different hotel chains but the one I keep coming back to is the Country Inn & Suites. The one in Lake City, Florida is worth the extra money and is the one I compare other hotel stays to, even other Country Inn & Suites. The rooms are always clean and well kept and their continental breakfast is more than expected. I have purposely brought my family for a stay there in which they have enjoyed the other ammenties like the pool and work-out center. Their Internet access is always good and the manager (Klaudia) stays on top of things and always says hi. This hotel is right off the busy street and is worth the stay. As a person who stays at hotels more than I want to, I would highly reccomend the Country Inn & Suites in Lake City, Florida to anyone passing through this town.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 2nd floor have a lobby stair access

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and staying with Lake City's award winner hotel. It is great to see that you and your family enjoy our indoor heated pool and spa. Our pool area is open from 6am to midnight to accommodate those that are working during the day can spend time with their family and relax. And you are right our breakfast is more than the typical continental breakfast at other hotel, we want to make sure that our guest will start their day right. Our complimentary Be Our Guest Breakfast offers a variety of hot (bacon, sausage, eggs, waffles, etc.) and cold (yogurt, cereal, pastries, parfait, etc.) delicious options.

have stayed at this property three times. The rooms are very clean and well organized and the pool area is well equipped. They have an extensive selection in the breakfast area to accommodate every type of nutritional requirement. The location is great too, tucked away off the road, nice and quiet.

I will stay there again, you should too.

While traveling home stayed one night. Got a coupon at rest area so charge was reasonable. Rooms very nice, good breakfast. Would recommend for a short or long stay. I did not use the pool but it looked nice and I was told it was heated.
