“Friendly, professional staff, clean & comfortable rooms, safe & close to conveniences”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

This Salina mid-priced hotel is a clean, comfortable, safe place to stay that is convenient to restaurants and even a Walmart & Sam's Club for your random travelling needs. The incredibly gracious staff made our 1-week (unplanned, but necessary) stay as homey as they could, from friendly smiles and greetings from the housekeeping & dining room staff to managers who kindly extended our stay multiple times (while permitting our family to remain in the same room). We stayed in a suite on the second floor, and found the room to be very clean, comfortable, and perfect for our needs. The mini-fridge was great for leftovers (and to chill a bottle of wine), the hotel is within easy walking distance to TUCSON's Restaurant (pretty solid food and service, but NOT a Tuscan restaurant as another TA reviewer reported), and the coffee bar & snacks in the hotel lobby are a nice, homey touch. The breakfast was decent (includes a make-your-own waffle station and other hot & cold entrees) and the dining room staff worked really hard to keep all items stocked and fresh. Although the hotel offered great accommodations for our needs, the staff is really what we'll remember. They loaned us a better corkscrew when we needed one, offered suggestions for where to go to dinner, and made themselves available at all hours to make our stay more comfortable and pleasant (providing new towels & linens at odd hours, depending on our needs). We didn't use the swimming pool, workout room, nor the laundry facilities, but it was nice to have these options available. Even if it's a little pricier (depends on the day, I'm sure), we think it's worth it because of the service, which rivals service we've received at resorts in Arizona. Great service experience! They give this chain a good name, and we even joined the Carlson Club (frequent guest club) because we had such a positive experience at this hotel.

Room Tip: The suites are great!

Clean, comfortable and a great breakfast. We were on an i-70 roadtrip and pulled in here for a night with a toddler. They gave us a room right by the door to the parking lot (huge advantage for sleepy toddler transition) which was just what we needed. Toddler enjoyed a morning swim in their pool - nothing fancy, but was nice and warm! The best part was the free breakfast - it was *real* food and the coffee was yummy. Staff was friendly. Nothing to complain about - definitely worth a couple more minutes drive off of i-70. Wish the prices were a little lower, but for our last night of driving, it was worth it to be comfortable.

We've stayed at the Country Inn on several occasions and have always been pleased. Brand new and extremely comfortable beds have been added since our last stay. The staff is always friendly and pleasant, as good as anywhere I've been. They also have a terrific breakfast that is far better than the ordinary fare at most hotels. If you are in the area, this is where you want to stay...

It was a nice hotel the decor was a little dated but it was nice. The air conditioning on the third floor didn't work. We got into our hotel late and had to get up early so we didn't do anything about it. The breakfast in the morning was ok, however we got there and everything was taken so we had cereal because we had to leave quickly and couldn't wait.

Thank you for taking time to post a review. I apologize for the air conditioning on the third floor being out during your stay. Since then, we have replaced the air conditioning unit. I would like you to come back to see one of our newly renovated rooms. All of our rooms currently are receiving new paint, carpet, artwork, and lighting.

Excellent hotel. The beds/pillows are the most comfortable I have ever slept on. The continental breakfast was very good and plentiful and the staff kept the area very clean and keep all the food options full. Check in was amazing. The desk clerk was the most joyful and kind person I have ever experienced at a check in. The rest of the staff was very friendly also. In this day and age where customer service is rare, congratulations to Salina! for a job very well done.

Excellent beds and breakfast. Even had make your own yogurt parfait and real dishware. We always enjoy staying at Country Inn and Suites. Did not have the correct rate at check-in but quickly corrected. Staff were very friendly, especially at breakfast and everyone we passed in the halls greeted us with a smile. Worth the drive from I70.

This lodging is one of the newest in Salina and is great. Comforable, roomy, attractive, clean and pleasant smelling. The living room of the suite had a ceiling fan and the bedroom benefitted from the fan without air directly blowing on you as you tried to sleep. There is also a great Tuscan restaurant in front of the motel within easy walking distance. I highly recommend the Country Inn and Suites, in Salina KS.
