“excellent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

we have been staying at this hotel for years and our most recent stay on december 14th was just like all the rest, perfect! this hotel is always very clean and kept up to date in all areas. the rooms are spotless as well as the lobby and the breakfast area. we never even consider staying at any other hotel when we are in this area. the manager and staff are excellent and always helpful with any questions you may have. you can't go wrong when you select this hotel.

The rooms are very nice and clean. We were treated very friendly and had a nice warm breakfast and the breakfast ladies were extra friendly and helpful. Will stop here again next year on our way to Fort Myers.

Stopped at this very nice hotel for one night in late December. Traveling from South Florida to North Georgia and needed to stay just one night. Arrived at the hotel without prior reservations about 5:30 PM. Front desk ladies, Mary and Holly, were extremely busy with other check-ins, but took the time to greet everyone who entered the lobby. Nice to be acknowledged.

We needed two rooms for three adults and received a very nice rate on each room. The rooms were very very clean and even though they were on the front side of the hotel (highway facing) with the air conditioning unit on, we could not hear any highway noise. Housekeeping needs a special "thank you" as the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean.

The breakfast buffet the next AM was very nicely presented and the breakfast ladies were extra friendly and helpful. Always checking on the buffet and making sure all the guest were satisified. The serving tables were wiped clean after each guest left and bins for the dirty dishes were promptly removed.

A very nice hotel with excellent prices, services and personnel.

Room Tip: Our room was on the front of the hotel, facing the highway, but we were not bothered with any highwa...

Being foreign visitors to America , and touring Florida we were staying in a hotel every night in a different town. This one will always stand out for us. We were treated very friendly , had a wonderful time at the pool, and had a nice warm breakfast with delicious coffee. So much so, that on our way back down to Orlando to fly home, we stopped there again to have the same excellent treatment. Thank you to the entire staff, you made our visit a pleasure.

We wanted to use a coupon recently at this property in Lake City, but the desk clerk said the only thing available was handicapped rooms? On a Monday night I find that hard to believe and the parking lot about half full at 9:30 PM. We stay at the Fairfield Inn less than a quarter mile away.

Room Tip: Last stay here the 2nd floor was good on the back side of the building.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a trip advisor.On behalf of our entire staff at Country Inns & Suites we apologize for the concerns you shared about your experience at this hotel. On that particular night we did have a christian based school group here. With that being said all of our double queens were occupied. We offered you what room we did have available. I am very sorry that you didn't like the choices we had available. We appreciate the feedback and hope that upon your next visit we can exceed your expectations.

What a wondful hotel, arrived late and had our room ready and very nice night manager on duty, still had cookies to eat for a late snack. Had to leave early the next morning, and breakfast would not be open, but they had coffee, fruit and little snacks for the early goers. Breakfast room was not open but went in anyway and they had no problem with it and was able to get a good breakfast for the road. Would stay there again.
