Business took me to Mason City, IA in April. After doing some looking online, I decided that the Country Inn and Suites looked like the best bet in a town with pretty limited hotel/motel options.
And it was a good bet. Although it is absolutely nothing fancy, the hotel was "as advertised" (it doesn't bill itself as anything fancy!) -- it looked like the pictures on its website and had all of the promised amenities. I had no problems during my stay.
My room was spacious and clean. It had a large desk and good lighting. There was a refrigerator. The bed was of average comfort -- standard mattress with clean sheets (if low thread count) and a fuzzy blanket and old-style bedspread. I've certainly had nicer beds, but I didn't expect anything too grand for a budget property and this bed had no problems with cleanliness.
The service at the hotel was polite and welcoming; the free breakfast had all of the staples. Overall, I thought the property lived up to expectations. I had a colleague who stayed at one of the other national chains in town and regretted he hadn't made a reservation at the Country Inn.
As for location, it was off the main drag in Mason City and had several stores and restaurants nearby.
