“Just right!”

Everything I was expecting and more. Quiet, convenient location. Convenience store adjacent. Pool and spa were clean and well maintained. Courteous staff, good breakfast, everything I have come to expect from CI&S!

Stayed in the hotel for one night. Check in was very fast, but we got the wrong type of room. One call and one minute later, we were standing in the right room!
Room was clean and nice. LCD TV was nice, but no 'real' HDTV, only analog. This could have some improvement.
Breakfast was not as expected. CI&S usually has real plates and cutlery but over here its all plastic. Also the 'hot' items are microwaved ones, the 'kitchen' exists of microwaves and fridges. Not the scrambled eggs you really want to eat. Fresh fruit was the deep-frozen kind, uneatable.

I reserved this hotel for a Saturday Sunday night stay in late July. Through Country Inn's website I got a promotional rate of $71 a night for a room with 2 queen beds. When we got to our room I noticed it did not have a microwave and refrigerator as advertised on their website. I asked the front desk clerk about this and was told not all the rooms have them as they are refurbishing some of the rooms. She said she would check and found the was a room with a king bed available that had the micro and refrigerator. Since we had brought cold food for a reunion we were attending we opted for the room with king bed so we had use of the refrigerator.
The room appeared to be clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel has a complimentary breakfast that offered waffles, eggs, sausage, breakfast potatoes, biscuits and gravy, cereal, fruit, yogurt, bread, bagels, rolls, juices and coffee. There were also chocolate chip cookies at the front desk throughout the day as well as coffee any time of the day.
There is a small swimming pool and whirlpool - the whirlpool was the right temperature and had quite a few jets making it a nice relaxing place after driving.
There is a restaurant attached to the hotel and a gas station/convenience store next door. If you want other restaurants you would have to travel to another exit. The only other businesses
around the hotel were clinics and offices and residential homes.
Overall this is a nice hotel with good service.

Stopped here on our way back home on our vacation. Hotel is in a very quiet area. There is a restaurant next door, but it was closed at 10pm when we checked in. The breakfast was very nice, with a lot of warm food choices. It wasn't very crowded when we eat, so that was a bonus. Pool and hot tub were small, but very nice.

Everyone on the staff were nice. The place was clean and fairly quiet. The breakfast was good with various choices for protein (instead of just carb loading). Good size rooms.

My only complaint was that there were 3 families of us and we wanted to play cards later in the night but there was no place to play except in the room, which was not comfortable. They wouldn't let us play in the eating area where there were tables and chairs. I understand they don't want people eating all the food, but it would have been nice to play cards with a table and chairs.

Checked in late, desk staff was very welcoming. I was checked in quickly and found my room to be nice and cool. The door to my room didn't shut good. I would leave and come back realizing nit had not shut all the way. Breakfast was very good, had hot items. Tv channels were not as listed.

We were finishing up our last day of traveling before reaching home after over 3,000 miles riding our motorcycle into the Southwest U.S. We had planned to stop in Sioux City, Iowa at a Days Inn, but discovered the Iowa tractor tour was in town and there wasn't a room to be had within miles. Thanks to a well informed host at the AmericInn (next to the Days Inn) we learned that the nearest available rooms were 20 miles away in Dakota Dunes, SD. So we headed north into South Dakota. It was right off the I-29 making it easy to find. When we checked in we were greeted warmly with the words "yes there is room in the inn." There is a restaurant next door to the motel, so as soon as we unloaded the bike we headed there for something to eat. Back at the motel we found our room to be clean, of ample size, and having everything we needed for our night's stay. The room was quiet and we had good beds. The breakfast in the morning was more than ample. We did pay a little more than we had planned for the room, but the value was worth it.
