Check in was very slow, even though prior arrangements have been made. Internet very slow, was told they are in process of installing wifi. The afternoon we left the air freshener in the lobby was too strong. I am an asthmatic and could smell in in our room with the door shut.

I stayed here 3 nights and I must say that the room accommodation was nice for the price, which was a military rate. The room appeared clean, oh so spacious to include a living room type area. The staff went over and above my expectations by shuttling me to pick up my vehicle @ the local dealership; also by serving as my own GPS each time I got lost in the area. I would call Shannon at the front desk and she'd tell me the way. Breakfast was good and there was a variety. The only minor nuisance would have been that that you could hear the pipes "sing" when the water was in use next door. BTW, I didn't have a reservation; the area was virtually sold out of rooms due to events in the City, however this hotel managed to get me a room. The bed was plush and awesomely comfortable. I didn't use room service much but they came around daily. Overall, I was truly pleased with this hotel and would certainly recommend it for your stay.

Room Tip: Room 211. That's where I stayed. Get it or one just like it; Use your military rate, AARP rate...

being a soldier in the U.S. Army, i love my weekends. whenever i get the chance to get away for a bit, this is the hotel i choose. not only is the pricing a total deal, but it's in a prime location. exit 10 is where all the restaurants and stores are around here, and the country inn is just 2 exits down from there. basically, if you're visiting Columbus to either see a loved one from fort benning, or to just see Columbus, the country inn and suites is the best hotel to stay at. free coffee and breakfast too. listen to me smalls, this is where it's at!

Location very close to everthing. Need to make earlier reservations to insure a handicap room availlable. Hotel staff very polite and helpful. The access road sign was difficult to see. It was in a very congested area and the signs where behind some bushes. Grandchildren loved the pool.. Thanks for the hospitatlity and cleanliness

Room Tip: 7 miles from town

Made reservations here months in advance for our son's graduation at Ft. Benning. Saw many of the reviews here, and was a bit leary of what we might encounter. Happy to say we had a very positive experience. We found all desk staff to be kind and friendly. The lady who is in charge of the daily breakfast offerings was especially nice and attentive. The room was clean and comfortable, and we found the overall appearance of the hotel to be fine. Breakfast was very generous and well maintained. We were able to check in early with no questions asked, and checkout is not until noon. If we need to revisit the Ft. Benning area, we would definitely stay at this motel again. The hotel is just off I-185, which is the main road into Ft. Benning, and it only took about 10 minutes to travel back and forth from one to the other.

I was in charge of arranging a business meeting in Columbus, and I called several locations around town for the best accommodations for the best rate. I reserved the meeting room and a guest room for 2 days/nights. The front desk staff was very courteous and cheery, even though I checking in at 10:00 pm. My guest room was very clean, and even though it was close to the elevator and there was a high school basketball tournament in town, there was very little noise. The meeting room was large enough to accommodate 35 people, and although it did get a little warm and musty with all those people, the hotel staff did a great job of welcoming everyone as they came in and pointing them in the right direction. I have already made my reservations for my next 2 meetings in town!

I had posted a review for the other Country Inn & Suites in Columbus, and I'm sure that's a very nice place, too, but I actually stayed at the Country Inn & Suites on Fountain Ct. in Columbus. It was one of the most pleasant experiences I've ever had at a hotel! Kalvin and Shannon were particularly helpful in guiding me through the reservation process (I'd never booked a hotel before; my hubby always did that), and they welcomed me as if we were old friends when I got there. The whole staff was pleasant and kind, the rooms, dining room, and grounds were clean, and the breakfast was delicious. There are fresh cookies and hot coffee or hot chocolate all day long, and we enjoyed that, too. When my son, who is in the Army at Ft. Benning got there, they thanked him for his sacrifice and spent time talking with him. I'm staying there again in early May and can't wait to catch up with everyone. Thank you!!
