“We stopped here on the drive to Disney...”
Reviewed April 5, 2010

We stopped here on the drive to Disney. At 1 am, they still accepted our Florida traveler's guide coupon. The room was large, clean, and comfortable. The free breakfast was very good with items like fresh waffles and French toast. The attendants at the front desk and the breakfast were very friendly. We would certainly stay here again.

We have stayed at this hotel probably a total of 5-6 times over the past 5 years when
we come down to visit Florida, and it is always a good choice for families on a budget
on their way to the many attractions in Florida.
It has a homey ambiance with the country style decor in the main lobby to the coziness
and home type feel of the rooms. One thing to note is the bathrooms and carpeting in each room has become worn from wear over the years and it could use some minor renovations in this area. The shower curtain in our bathroom was stained with mildew or light mold in spots so this wasn't what was expected from a place we have come to know quite often. The breakfast area was very nice with all the usual things to enjoy.

We stayed at several Country Inn and Suites on our way to and from Treasure Island, Florida for our vacation, and this was by far our favourite. Klaudia greeted us at the desk. We got to our room and were surprised to find a fridge and microwave which we didn't ask for, but was most appreciated, (we will ask for this from now on). The room was comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. Some hotels only give 3 small pillows with a king size bed. Breakfast was extra special as we were greeted by Mary. The place wouldn't be quite the same without her. She is a special lady. They also had a much better breakfast than most of the Country Inns, with scrambled eggs, toast and homemade oatmeal (without all the sugar), and a selection of herbal teas. It's not huge, but I have diet restrictions so it made a big difference to me.
I believe they are privately owned.
Although we look specifically for a Country Inn and Suites, because they are generally clean and nice, they would do well to take on some of these extras, or we may be tempted to find other places that do.

The lobby are is very welcoming and actually had the smell of an old country home...like warm biscuits or something. Very cozy! The room was very large and clean and the hallway to the room smelled like potpourri. My daughter enjoyed the indoor heated pool as it was 18 degrees the morning of our stay.

We recently stayed for one night at the Country Inn & Suites in Lake City, Florida on our way to board the Disney Magic for a Christmas cruise. The hotel was decorated for the holidays and felt more like being welcomed into someone's beautiful and spacious home, than a hotel. The staff was warm, friendly and welcoming. The room was large and immaculate with a king-sized bed. Breakfast was better than your average hotel breakfast and set out with care by a lovely hostess who asked if there was anything else she could get for us. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Well to start off with why do they even bother having a laundry room? I could have beat out my own laundry on the bed in the room. My sheets and comforter had a stain on them, and the ac unit was barely running. Their idea of a "hot" breakfast was some microwave bacon and fake eggs. About the only highlight of this hotel was the friendly receptionist when we checked in. Id have to say that there are better deals in town.
