We've stayed in several places here over the years and this is by far the very best! Not only are the rooms great, the bed and pillows comfortable (and I am picky), but the staff is wonderful and the location is perfect. It is near the freeway and there are several eating establishments within 1/2 -1 mile or closer. They... More

We were on an epic 23 day cross country trip. This hotel was a good price, the staff gave friendly great service, and it met our needs. Denise was the hostess and was the best! She had a guest reception with great snacks which was such a gift! She was so friendly and welcoming!

Impressed by how clean and roomy our hotel was- also loved that there was cable, wifi and even a fridge. Service was excellent and the complimentary breakfast was fantastic! Would stay with them again!

Good, clean well run hotel. It's pet friendly, or based on the conversation, $25 up charge, and contract it's at least pet tolerant so it has that going for it. They try pretty hard with the breakfast. Waffles, yogurt, bacon, cereal. Those are nice, but you could save on the room and pay for a better breakfast elsewhere.

We booked a room at the Country Inn on our way from Michigan to Keystone, SD and eventually to Estes Park, Colorado. The room was very comfortable and clean. The room was quiet despite the fact that they were fully booked the night of our stay due to a girls softball tournament occurring in the area. As a result of... More

Our stay was just okay. While the room seemed clean there was black hair in the sink, which was gross. The room smelled musty, especially when the air conditioner would kick on. The hotel smelled like sweat from whatever spices were being cooked with in the party room (which happened to be in the hall with our room). We could... More

stopped for the night on our trip to Wyoming. room was clean, price was fair and the location was good for traveling. There is dining just on the other side of the parking lot. Check in was easy but I did not book in advance. Checked trip advisor on the road to compare prices but ended up calling to make... More
