“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

We stopped after driving from northern Wisconsin. The outside just looked inviting. It was very clean and the staff very friendly. The room was comfortable and the bed cozy. My husband liked the cookies offered in the lobby. They had a very nice breakfast. Too bad we didn't bring our bathing suits. Pool looked very nice. Glad we stopped. Will definitely stay at Country Inn & Suites again in our travels. The price was better than we expected.

We stayed here for just one night after a day shopping. ( Two adults) We wanted something with a pool and hot tub. We used the hot tub...was fantastic..nothing over and beyond what a normal hotel offers but was relaxing and exactly what was expected. The pool area was clean and had towels. The pool and hot tub are right next to each other. The room itself was clean and the bed was comfortable..I have back problems and didn't wake up any worse than at home. I did notice the room we had (right next to the pool and exercise room) which I loved..did seem to have some noise from others flushing toilets and showers. We did get ice and used the mini fridge..no problems but the little freezer is just that!! As far as the hotel staff the front desk workers were fantastic..we did ask to see a room before we stayed and were shown one.. There were other people coming in at the same time and they were gonna make them wait while they took us to a room..but we were in no hurry and let the others check in..after a few hrs we asked where we could get delivery..the front desk clerk was very honest and gave his opinions thankfully told us the one place was sketchy on health practices.. check out was quick and easy and they were also friendly. Im not sure how breakfast was..I would definitely stay here again and for price would recommend it..mircotel is right next door but didn't check it out.

We stopped here for one night. There was a terrible snow storm blowing off the lake, and I had 'reward points. From the minute I arrived I knew I had made the right decision. The hotel smelled clean and fresh. The lobby was bright and welcoming, and the young man who checked us in was pleasant and helpful. A nice difference from most CInns, was the elevator! The stairs were easliy accessible, the pool was warm and a good size.
We had a 'suite' so the King bed had a door to close it off from the sitting area. The bathroom was large and clean. There were 2 flatscreen TVs. The bed was comfy, the towels were soft and the temperature was easily controlled. We had a fridge and microwave as well. We ordered pizza from Papa Johns and it arrived quickly. The fridge helped with the leftovers, and the sitting area meant the bedroom did not smell like pizza all night.
The breakfast was adequate. It was basic hotel fare, nothing special.
We will definitely stay again if we pass through.

Stayed one night while shopping & sightseeing in the area.
The hotel is very conveniently located, right off the freeway and near many other businesses, including restaurants, convenience/fuel, and grocery (Meijer) store.
We had a king room (121) right next to the bathrooms that were adjacent to the pool & hot tub. There was some noise from other guests in the hallway, shutting doors, and a the sound of rushing water when someone in an upstairs room flushed their toilet. Not the most romantic sound, or one you necessarily want if you eating a snack!
The room (including bathroom) was clean and adequate, and the king bed was very comfortable. We did not use the pool/hot tub, or try the breakfast. (As a diabetic, I find most hotel breakfasts are off-limits, due to the massive carbohydrate & sugar content of the food offered. I would like to see lo-carb yogurt, cereal that is not sugar coated, eggs, meat, etc.)
I would likely stay here again.

We recently stayed here and were very satisfied. There was a small mix up with the room. We had reserved a room with a King size bed and a pull out couch. There was no couch in the room for our son. They quickly changed the room for us to one with 2 beds, which was ok with us. Our room was nicely apointed and clean except for a couple of cobwebs in the ceiling corners. I'm sure I have some on my ceilings too. The bathroom was ample with a very good shower and spotlessly clean. The room had a nice size refrigerator with a small freezer section - great for refreezing our ice packs. There was also a microwave. The property was well maintained and clean. The pool was a bit chilly, but we enjoyed the hot tub. Breakfast was good. A little different than other country inn and suites we have been too, but we had ample to eat with plenty of choices including hot foods. The front desk clerk, I'm sorry I don't remember her name, was very friendly and professional and helpful. The cookies at the front desk were very good too. We would definately stay here again and recommend it to others.

What a clean and comfortable hotel. They worked with myself and co-workers on arranging to have breakfast earlier than posted hours to help us. The wireless was wonderful, no problems.

The bed was very comfortable and allowed me to have a great night's rest.

Room Tip: Stay away from #211 and #311 if you do not like a smaller room - they are behind the elevator. Not...

First words walking in to the hotel lobby,"Wow, this is so pretty." First words when walking in to inspect our room, "It smells good in here!" Now that says something when a hotel room not only doesn't have a weird smell, but smells good. The entire hotel was very clean & service was great. By not having reservations and asking prices for that night on the spot, we got a great deal for the night. The pool area was a little out dated but clean. Breakfast was yummy but the entire breakfast lounge was full. However, it didn't take too long for the attendant to notice and she opened up another room for hotel quests to eat in. Overall an A+
