“One of our favorite hotels.”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

As usual Country Inn & Suites has satisfied our expectations. This location was an older hotel but very well maintained and the staff was great. We were relying on the GPS to find it and it had sent us to the billboard out of town, so use Google maps prior to arriving in Grand Rapids. Since this experience we have done this to familiarize ourselves with the area, landmarks, etc. Room was very clean and inviting, forgot to try homemade cookies, wonderful breakfast though. Would recommend this Hotel to any one.

Room Tip: No issues with our room's location.

Checking in at 10:30PM, front desk staff was cheerful and welcoming. Very clean, comfortable bed, quiet. Convenient. Carpet in the hallway is worn, but hotel has plans for updating and replacing already. Great breakfast-eggs, bacon, pastry, and cold cereal! Highly recommended, good value for my money. Grocery store across the street. Restaurant--the Sawmill next door was highly recommended by the staff I trained. Fast food within a 1/2 mile.

Room Tip: no elevators. Choose first floor or plan to carry luggage to second floor.

My son and I stayed her while attending a wedding. The property is well kept. The rooms are well appointed and clean. The breakfast is quite basic. The homemade cookies are a plus. The staff members are excellent and personable. The room rates seemed quite high for the area; friends who stayed at comparable properties paid less.

The rooms in this hotel are spacious and everything is very clean and neat. They have lots of nice touches like tea and coffee always available along with cookies and magazines and papers in the lobby. The location makes for an easy walk to some stores, like Target and Cub foods. We would certainly stay here again.

We spent one fabulous night at the Country Inn. They had everything. Pool, jacuzzi and warm cookies available all day and night. Our room was spacious with two double beds,big flat screen tv, fridge and microwave. The shower had an adjustable head making it a good shower. Breakfast in the morning had eggs, bacon, potatoes, waffles, sweet roll, bagels, toast and three kinds of juice. I would go back whenever I am in this town again. Great staff and very helpful.

The hotel was very clean, the staff very helpful. We had a great stay in
Minnesota. We would probably stay there again. The kids loved the pool and hot tub. The continental breakfast was good. The ladies were awesome with great personalities.

Room Tip: We had a double room. Better with 4 people. Plenty of space.

Checked in late but staff very friendly. Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast excellent...waffles, hot potatoes, sausage, fruit, hot oatmeal etc. Nicely presented. Great value. Would stay here again and will try other Country Inn and Suites.
