“Short stay but comfortable!”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Drove off the highway very late and walked in looking for two rooms. John who was working the front desk accommodated us immediately and got us checked-in within a matter of 10 minutes. Rooms were very nice, comfortable and clean! Breakfast in the morning was good and the woman who maintained it worked very hard to make sure it was filled and clean. We would definitely stay there again.

We were three adults and two small children, so we took a suite ($100) consisting of two double beds in the main bedroom and a sofabed in the smaller sitting room next to the door (separated by the bathroom and an archway). Space in the main bedroom was rather cramped, but the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was clean, with modern fittings and a few toiletries (but no grab bar in the tub). The hotel has a nice indoor pool which we were too tired to try out. Breakfast the next morning was more than adequate, with a wide range of hot and cold food.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room at the back of the hotel, away from the noisy interstate facing the entran...

Perfect stay. Room was clean & comfortable. Staff was personable & efficient. Cookies in the evening were warm, breakfast was typical. Continental + eggs & sausage, waffles, etc.
Had pizza delivered at managers's suggestion. It was nice not to have to got out. We will stay here again if the need arises.

The good: The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The common areas such as the lobby, pool and breakfast room were very clean and in great condition. The beds were comfortable. We arrived around 10pm after travelling most of the day and were very tired. As we walked in our room, there were several issues that were in need of attention. The pull out sofa sleeper was very old and the fabric was worn through in a couple areas. We opened up the sofa bed for our boys to sleep and a couple of the springs were sticking uncomfortably high on the matress. Drywall joint tape was peeling away from the wall in several locations. Neither of the lights by the night stand worked, and it was not just a light bulb problem. There were holes in the curtains that allowed the early morning light to enter the room and wake us up well before we were ready. The furniture (desk, dresser, etc) were very beat up looking. The room was clean, but in desparate need of attention. We politely pointed these things out upon check out and was told our concers would be presented to the general manager. The condition of the room certainly did not justify the price we paid.

This was our fourth stay at this hotel. It's one of our family's favorite hotels. We stay in a double queen suite. Every time it's been clean, spacious and very comfortable. Plenty of towels and outlets for our family. The man at the front desk has greeted us each year with such a welcoming manner. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast at the hotel is incredible though.....with real plates and silverware! Many breakfast choices, including healthier options than most hotels provide. The kids' favorite part?? The hot cookies in the lobby.

Room Tip: We had reservations for our room and checked-in around 6:00. The hotel was already full. You may w...

This was a very enjoyable stay! I was here to visit friends & go to a concert at the Performance Center for my birthday! This was my first stay at a Country Inn, but it won't be my last. Clean rooms, nice size bathroom which is important to me & great service! Loved the continental breakfast as well!

Room Tip: Try to get a room not facing the highway it was a little loud with traffic.
