“Great hotel”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

We stayed here while visiting family. Good location, comfortable and clean rooms. The breakfast in the morning was good. They had oatmeal, egg and sausage patties, toast/bagles, fresh fruit, variety of cereals. The room was spacious and comfortable. Good value for the hotel. Would stay here again.

There was an error in the reservation we made through Expedia, and the hotel was sold out. While I was on the phone with Expedia, Rocky Patel, the manager found us a room nearby, and secured us a great rate. He even invited us back for their full breakfast. Although we didn't get to stay here, I have to commend Mr. Patel for his excellent service.

Excellent rooms! They were very clean and had super comfortable beds. The shower was awesome. Breakfast room was very crowded in the morning, but we did arrive fairly late. This was a great place!

This is a typical Country Inn & Suite hotel, well run, friendly staff, nice breakfast. The hotel is close to Hwy 70, but I did not notice any traffic noise problem. It is located about 10 minutes away from Mizzou campus. Would definitely consider staying here again if in town.

We have stayed in at least eight different motels in Columbia. CIS is one of the top three. We really enjoy the clean room and comfort of their beds.

Room Tip: Look at the cleanliness of the bathroom before you open your suitcase.

I've stayed at several properties in Columbia in the past year. This is one of the first hotel's I check for availability. I like the location a little farther off the highway (i.e. quieter), the breakfast is more than ample and I think that the beds are actually comfortable! Not to mention, I've always been impressed with the cleanliness of the room. The price point is a little high but most hotels in the area are, especially when there's a Mizzou football game!

Room Tip: The "back" side of the hotel is super quiet.

Have stayed at the hotel numerous times and each time have been disappointed in the temperature of the hot tub - which the staff infomred me they could do nothing about and that it was company controlled. I would estimate that the temperature is aound 97 degrees or less. I own a hot tub myself and am familiar with what an acceptable water temperature should be for a 15 minute use. I normally have mine set to 100 degrees so that you can sit in the tub for slightly longer than 15 minutes without elevating your body temperature. The clerk at the desk confirmed that she too thought it was exceptionaly cold. You actually get chilled sitting in the tub after 2 minutes!! I imagine this is done to allow the numerous underage kids to use the hot tub for extended periods of time or to jump back and forth from the cold to the hot despite the warnings that it is for 16 year olds and over. Very disappointing to not have this amenity after a long day.
I definately would not call this a 'hot' tub, and instead call this a 'kids' warming tub after they get cold while swimming. I take a bath hotter than this, and would bet that 98% of the adult population showers with water hotter than this!
An on top of that, the air temperature in the pool area is set to 84 degrees which is stiffling hot if you aren't swimming...but they can't turn the water up? Strange company policy!

Also wondering why in 2012 we stil have tube TV's in the rooms. Really???

Room size and staff however, have always been accomodating. Company just needs to be honest in the amenity descriptions.

Room Tip: lots of kids sports teams use the facility and run the halls at night. Ask for end room, or to be p...
