“WORST EVER!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

We are here for a baseball tournament. Every one of us got charged a different price for the same rooms, and the owners are rude. First they said they had no room for us at all. We were told the rooms were $119 a night, and we came to find they were $130. There were 4 of us in a room, which on their website says is the number of people a room can have. Our friends were charged $290 up front for 4 people in the same size room. Other friends had 2 and were told it was $20 more a person over 2 people. They came out at 11:00 pm and told us its quiet time like we're children, and we apologized and got quieter. The people down from us were almost silently playing cards and the owner came out again at 1 and he said he was going to call the cops on us all because he couldn't hear his tv. We offered to go out back and were told we had to stay in our rooms. The room attendants came in while we were gone when we didn't ask for service, and moved our things around, such as our clothing and personal items. The pop machines were empty and there was no ice. The owners dog yipped around late at night and was very annoying. I would never ever recommend this place to anyone.

Motels beware

We would like to apologize to all the Guest staying Aug.31 and Sept.1
for extreme noise and rude langue. All of you staying at our Motel you witness
extreme drinking and partying from “baseball team 20 plus “ staying in rooms
109,110.111,101,102,103 and 106 .We guarantee that would NOT happened
again. We are very sorry young kids from other team had to listen all the
language for 2 nights. We assure all our costumers that this WON’T happened again
We are sorry not to remove this “drunks” out of the Motel first night. As much we try to
be nice and professional we can’t ignore that some people are just not ready
to stay and share public places. All the review from them are total false.
We have the same rates $119.00 for 2 people and $129.00 for 3-4 people
for past 3 years and they new that. Not to communicate with the team manager is
not our problem. Right from the first people check in we knew we have problem.
Drunk 2pm, using F.. word for manager idiot stupid etc…In 26 years running Motel we newer
heard so many swearing and F.. words. We are so sorry for the kids next to them who have to listen
this for 2 days. Yes, what a role models for baseball. Harassing our housekeeping for
changing towels and refill the coffee and fix the rooms which is the part of our service
was so low we have no comments.
We at the Country Inn Motel regret we let those people to stay 2nd day and harass
other guest and management. Our promise to enforce 11pm – 7am QUIET hours
will be 100% from now on

We offer special discount for the guest staying Aug.31 and Sept 1/12 for your next visit

Sincerely apologies

On a recent business trip we had to find a hotel on very short notice and came across the Country Inn. This place was awesome very nice looking property and very friendly service. The pricing was amazingly very resonable if you are in this are and need a place to stay i would definatly recommend this motel it is very clean and affordable.

I happened upon the Listowel Country Inn while I was in Perth County for work and stayed for three nights. The rooms were clean and affordable, though somewhat dated. Free wi-fi. My biggest complaint, the motel is north of town and just beyond walking distance.

We stayed here as part of my daughter's dance team (performed at Norgan Theatre in Palmerston). The rooms are spotlessly clean but not luxurious. Two double beds, an older model TV sitting on a dresser, free WiFi, brightly-lit bathroom, new tub surround.
A motor inn style where you drive right up to your door to park and unlock the room with a metal key. Walls are *very* thin; we could hear the conversation + laughter from the dancers next door.

Room Tip: Ask for a first-floor room if you don't like stairs

We have stayed here twice while visiting my father in his retirement residence in Palmerston (not at all far away) - the first time was with my husband and twin toddlers, and we stayed in the apartment, which is awesome for a family. This second time it was just myself and the kids, and we stayed in a deluxe room - it was perfect! It was a busy weekend for the motel because of weddings in the area, and themotel was heavily booked - but the owner managed to find us a room for two nights, which was very much appreciated after 7 hours of travelling! The room itself was SPOTLESS - I mean, I have travelled and stayed in many hotels and inns for both business and pleasure, and I have NEVER stayed anywhere so well maintained and clean! The beds were heavenly - I have a tricky back and often have a problem when I travel, but these beds were luxurious. The tv/dvd combo helped my kids stay happy and entertained. And although the motel was very busy, we were never distubed by noise of other guests.
All in all, this was a perfect stay for my first solo road trip with my kids - we'll never stay anywhere else when in the area - thanks for running such a superb establishment and providing such a great stay!
