“Hard to top this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We stayed at this Country Inn because we were flying out the next morning, and the airport is only 10 minutes away by the free shuttle bus. We have stayed at other Country Inns in the past, but this one is truly the best for hospitality and service. We can't say enough about Stefanie at the front desk. She anticipated our every need, placed us in a quiet room at the back of the hotel, and made arrangements for us to leave the car while we were away for a week. Mr. Patel, you were also very accommodating, thank you.
The room was standard, which means it was adequate in size for two persons but would have been crowded for four. Nevertheless it had two comfortable queen beds, work table and chair, chest of drawers, TV and luggage rack. The wash basin had its own counter at one end of the room, while the bathroom had just a toilet and tub/shower. There was a complete set of toiletries, and the place was impeccably clean and bright.
Stefanie directed us to the free dinner served from Monday to Thursday at the nearby Holiday Inn, a joint project of the two hotels plus the Best Western. It was a fairly small buffet, but adequate for our needs. The next morning, the free breakfast at the hotel was more than satisfying. In the afternoon there are also cookies (and sometimes doughnuts) in the lobby, something we have come to expect at Country Inns. All in all, an excellent stay, and we hope to return.

We always stay at Country Inn and Suites whenever we travel. It really is a home away from home for us. This trip was no different. The value can't be beat. For our nightly fee, we also got tix to the Children's Play Museum, breakfast each morning and dinner at a "sister" hotel as well. While not gourmet, definetely good enough for us. The pool was good. When the hottub was cold, a quick mention to management, and it was hot in no time.
We had a bit of an issue with the heater unit the first night. When mentioned to Gordon, the front desk manager, we were quickly moved to a new room and offered a free upgrade. Our second night was peacefull and roomy (one bedroom suite). It's those little things that bring repeat customers.
Thanks for a nice stay. If we're back in the area, we'll be sure to stay again.

The Country Inn and Suites locations that I have stayed at have always been clean and quiet. This location was no exception, everything was as it should have been. I didn't get to use the shuttle or the breakfast room that others mentioned. I enjoyed my stay.

Amazing experience. All the way down from the general manager who followed up after my stay to Stephanie, the amazing person from the front desk who helped me with all my families needs. we used free hotel shuttle to get to and from airport. we also used free hotel shuttle to get around town within 2 mile range. the free breakfast was the best i have ever seen. they had everything. i hear there is a free dinner mon-thurs. also, my daughter and i rented free movies each night from the desk to play in the rooms dvd player. we played checkers in the lobby and borrowed the kids books from the library. highly recommended. beds were amazingly comfortable. even my 5 year old wants to go back to the hotel again.

Our hockey team (10 year-old boys) came down from Ottawa for the Rochester Americans tournament earlier this month and the Country Inn was an excellent choice for our group – we felt truly welcome and at home. The staff opened the breakfast room early so we could eat before morning games and kept it well stocked throughout the morning so we often came back and refueled post-games. They even let us take over the breakfast room for an impromptu pizza party and mini-sticks tournament one evening. They were very patient with the sometimes loud and lively boys and didn’t mind us treating the cozy lobby (with fireplace) like a living room. Rooms were basic, but clean and quiet. Kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Thanks for being great hosts, Country Inn!

These are the best people in the business. Ask for Gordon, Marta, or Tisha. I get better service here than at higher end hotels. I truly believe the staff here cares about their job and they have made my business trips to Rochester a pleasure. After work, of course.
