“Clean & Friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2009

I stayed at Country Inn while I was going to see the Rascal Flatts Concert. The motel was clean and the staff was friendly. It was near many restaurants so we could get something to eat after the concert. I would choose this hotel if I am in Champaign again.

  • Liked — The suite was very spacious and the bed was comfortable.
  • Disliked — Nothing it was great!

Parking lot was a sheet of ice upon arrival and departure. Our room was right across the hall from an ice machine which made an amazing amount of noise. The wireless signal was very spotty. The breakfast buffet had very few healthy items, including fruit. The jacuzzi and pool had way too much chlorine in it and were closed for maintenance on a Sunday morning!

We were so pleased with our accomodations and the service we received during our week-long stay. The suite had plenty of room and made wheelchair navigation much easier than in most hotel rooms. The bathroom also had plenty of space for the wheelchair. There was a handheld shower faucet and the tub had a flip-down bath bench, items rarely found in handicapp accessible rooms these days.
The hotel lobby was nicely appointed and very comfortable, although it would have even more so had the fireplace been operationable during our stay. Although the food was standard hotel fare (biscuits & gravy, scrambled eggs & bacon, etc.), the breakfast room was very pretty and easily accessible even during the busiest period of the mornings.
All the hotel staff we encountered were respectful and professional; they treated us as though we were special guests and we would definitely stay again.

The location was good. It is near the mall, Meijers, a Starbucks with a dirve-thru, Wal-Mart, Target, and numerous restaurants. There never was that much traffic so driving to see relatives about 6 miles away in Urbana was not a big deal.

We paid $169+ tax to get what was billed as a jacuzzi suite. We really only wanted to guarantee we would have a king bed. Strangely, the giant jacuzzi tub was literally in the sleeping area about 4 feet from the bed.

Frankly, all of the prices at this hotel seemed steep for what it was.

The room was OK, but we could never get the temperature right because of the old time a/c-heat unit. There were dark brown stains on box spring on both sides of the bed. On the second day of our stay they did not leave any shampoo, but rather two conditioners. A mistake anyone could make in a hurry, so no biggie there.

The common areas are nice enough, but were constantly overrun with kids. The breakfast area was fine as were the pastries. Free breakast is a nice treat, but the selection was not that great. Pastries, waffles, and other sugary sweet things. The coffee was not hot which was disappointing, but there isa small coffee maker in the room.

I would recommend this hotel for families with kids (if you can get a decent room rate) because of the following: pool; free breakfast; rooms have a small kitchenette area with fridge; and it is close to lots of shopping and food.

This was my first Courntry Inn and Suites stay. Have to say I was not impressed. In need of a good rehab. Carpet, bedding and towels very tired. Breakfast was decent. Had to laugh that someone else come back to a room with the doors wide open. I went and told them I forgot me key and went back and locked it up. It is crazy as I had not checked out. Never had that happen before. Several new hotels going up in the area. Many better options in town.

The motel is clean and modern. Very comfortable room. Fitness center, breakfast area and business room clean. quiet location. Very comfortable bed. A good night's sleep.

The only problem we had that will keep me from going back to this hotel would be the manager's policy and rudeness.

We stepped out for breakfast and when we came back the door was wide open and the room was being cleaned. Check out is 12:00 it was only 10:15. I did not check out but had brought most of our things to the car. We were returning to swim and shower after breakfast. The manager told me "too bad, you should know to leave all your things in there, so we checked you out ourselves." I have never heard of such a thing and will be contacting the chain to let them know this is her policy. No "sorry" or anything. I was out of luck and told to leave.


Suggestion: If you step out of this hotel, let the desk know you do not want them in your room when you are gone.

I just needed a nice, guest friendly hotel to stay at. This hotel was all of that. The bed was comfortable, the room and bathroom clean and the staff was pleasant. My one complaint would be that the walls were too thin and the guests' TV next door was pretty loud. There was breakfast but I slept in and didn't get a chance to try it out. The Country Inn & Suites was a good fit for me.

  • Liked — Clean comfortable room.
