“The best staff I have found!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

I stayed at this beautiful inn a couple weeks ago. It is a convenient location, the staff are amazing and the accommodations are more than sufficient. Earlene and her team keep the rooms spotless and the GM Steve does a fine job of helping guests find good restaurants, museums, etc. I have a new contract that will put me in the Newport News area at least once a month for the next couple years, and I will be staying here each and every time!

Room Tip: Ask for a third floor room to have a quieter stay

I have used this hotel repeatedly over the last few year for our high school track team. The manager, Stephen Barger, and his staff have been extremely accommodating and have meet our every need. The continental breakfast is fresh and clean with friendly worker staff. Additionally the hotel is very quiet and the beds are excellent. I already have 2 more group reservations for the near future. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling in the Hampton/Newport News area.

My husband and I stayed at the Country Inn & Suites while visiting family in Newport News during the Thanksgiving holiday. Our stay was excellent. The hotel and room were clean and comfortable, with a helpful staff. The breakfast was very good with lots of options for starting the day. The food varied from day to day, which was a nice surprise. There are always snacks available in the lobby: a pot of coffee or tea and cookies. Seemed like a home away from home. I'd definitely recommend it and will stay there again.

My family and I stayed at the Country Inn & Suites for Thanksgiving. We came to Newport News to visit family and am so glad we chose to stay here. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. We didn't check in until midnight and the front desk clerk was still very nice and helpful. Check in was quick they had all our paperwork waiting for us which was nice when checking in with two children who were very tired from the 5 hour drive there. The best part was the pool. It is open until midnight which is great because we were visiting family all day and we could still take the kids swimming before bed! I will stay here anytime we come to Newport News!

Dear JamieLynn,

Thank you so much for your great review and for your recent stay at our hotel. We know that there are times our guests don't get back to the hotel until late, and that is why we extended our pool hours until midnight, so that you will still have a chance to enjoy our heated indoor pool and hot tub. We have made some changes to our housekeeping program recently, to improve guest satisfaction by working on the small, but important details in the rooms. I am glad to see this is working, and glad to see you loved your stay with us!

I hope to have you as our guest for years to come, when you're in town visiting family & friends!

Thank you again for your stay, see you soon!

Sincerely,

Stephen Barger
General Manager

We have never had a bad experience at this Country Inn & Suites and stay here several times yearly. There are restaurants and shopping malls in area and convenient to I-64. Staff is always friendly, smiling and efficient. We were assigned to a handicap room on this stay which had a large bathroom and spacious living room. We like to sleep with the bathroom light on in case we have to get up during the night and appreciated that there is not a fan in the ceiling that runs when the light is in on position. Bed was comfortable and that is important since back problem is an issue. Hotel was very quiet. Our tv did not have good reception on 2nd night and repair came immediately, located the problem and reprogramed. Repair person was very friendly and apologetic. We were not inconvenienced at all. A smile says a thousand words and every employee we came in contact with was always smiling.

As a long time traveler who prefers Country Inns, I was satisfied with the spacious bath room (we were fortunate to have a handicapped room, we are not). The rest of the room was satisfactory for our stay (crashed after Busch Gardens). We had a marginal experience with breakfast, as the attendant did not speak English and was often on her cellphone. We have stayed there many times over the years and have not had a bad experience there, although they habitually run out of cookies!
