“FRIENDLY STAFF ALONG WITH A GREAT POOL!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2009

We needed a get away so we came to the Country Inn & Suites in Stillwater. I traveled with my family (2adults & 3kids), it was perfect for all of us. Kevin the night/ daytiime front desk employees was great, very friendly & he assisted us with whatever we needed. The room was big and clean. The pool was nice & warm, the hot tub was nice & HOT. Breakfast was awesome. It was a very relaxing night for us.

The Country Inn was was a well kept and comfortable place. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was a very nice indoor pool. It is located on a busy road a ways out of town, but was not noisy at all. There are many stores and restaurants in the immediate area.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2009

It is very disappointing to go to a hotel to swim and relax, only to find the pool so cold NO ONE will go into it. We were there on a Saturday night to Sunday morning....no one in the pool.
As we were checking out, guests were asked, "how was everything?" the answer..."good."
I said, to the people that had been complaining about the cold pool, "was the pool good?" "Or was it so cold no one would go in?"
Because they all had disappointed children. Then they all agreed that it was very cold. In fact, we asked Sat. if they would turn up the heat. We were told it would take 5 hours to warm up. We said, good, then it will be warm in the morning. It was the same in the morning. The hot tub had at least a foot of gray foam covering it!
I was assured that they would comp "ME" another stay. Which they did, but why would you want to go again?
I will probably try it on a HOT summer day since I did receive a free night. If it is better, I will let you know.
Hotel managers need to know that a warm pool brings the families back. Charge us more for a room, so you can pay to warm up the pool. 80 degrees sounds warm. It is 18.6 degrees below body temp. 85 is 13.6 degrees below body temp. I wonder how many managers use their pool?

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2008

I feel confident in saying this was a wonderful place to stay seeing as how we were at the hotel for more than a week attending to funeral/family obligations.

The staff is friendly and courteous and the lobby was small and intimate with a fireplace, couches and chairs. There was a bookshelf full of books and books on tape that you could rent. While most lobbies are beautiful, etc. I never feel good hanging around them. Not the case here. We sat down there several times with family and felt so at home.

The suite was large with a sitting area/sofa bed. A bar-type area had a nice sized fridge and microwave with storage around it.

The bathroom is spacious as well as bedroom. I do agree with another review in feeling that the AC/Heat is a problem because it is located only in the bedroom. We didn't keep the door closed all night and both rooms have ceiling fans which help.

The pool is great, although it is very stuffy to sit in there if you're not swimming. While we were there ours were the only two kids and they swam every night. The pool is open late (11pm or midnight, I think) which is great!

There are several restaurants in the area as well a Kohl's, Wal-Mart and other places you always seem to need while away from home.

Note: if you are handicapped or have physical disabilities you will need to request a ground-floor room as there is no elevator.

This was a basic vanilla accommodation. The room was large enough - 2 queen beds, small TV, furniture was not large enough to unpack suitcases for 2 adults and 1 small child. AC unit was loud. Bottom sheet on one bed was ripped. Towels were really rough, but got new ones every day. The room appeared to be clean, although some housekeeping staff did a more thorough job than others. No mini frig or microwave in room. No fitness room, which I would have really liked. Complementary breakfast was bagels, muffins, waffles, cereal, oatmeal, coffee, juice, yogurt, milk. Hard boiled eggs and sausage patties were offered one morning. Would have really liked some fruit - raisins, bananas or something to go with my oatmeal. Staff was OK, some were inexperienced and cranky and others were friendly and helpful. Somehow, clearing the dining room of all the food while a substantial number of guests were still eating at 9:30 am was a little annoying to me.

I guess 2 stars is relative to the location. Although I might go back for a short stay - we visited relatives, I might just as well stay at the holiday inn around the corner.

There appear to be no better hotels in this immediate area.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2006

We stayed the night of May 27, 2006. Our room was a 2-room suite. The AC/heat was located only in the bedroom. If you have any children sleeping on the sofa-bed, AC or heat will not reach them if you shut your bedroom door. There was a roof leak in the bedroom area which caused the ceiling to bulge. The tv in the "living" area was fuzzy, connection was not even tolerable. The sofa bed mattress was ripped and worn out. The closest security door to our room was not functioning. One could walk out but not get back in. There is no elevator. It also happened to be in the 90's this particular weekend and it was not tolerable for anyone not swimming in the indoor pool to sit around the pool. (It could be ok at cooler temperatures??) However, the staff was friendly but were not able to do much about our troubles. The breakfast was ok. We did check out the next morning and moved to the Holiday Inn Express.

Wonderful hotel. Polite staff, very clean, and very comfortable rooms. We were thrilled to have a microwave and a refrigerator @ not extra charge. Great warm pool, be sure to take advantage of it! Nice hot breakfast in the morning! We will be back to this hotel!
