“So so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Nothing special about this Country Inn and Suites. I would rate is as "average". The rates were fair in comparison to surrounding areas. The breakfast, I would rate a little higher than average. It is located right off of I-29. The attached restaraunt is EXTREMELY overpriced and the food quality was poor at best. That is a downside to this location, you have to get back on the freeway in order to get something to eat.

The first very positive experience was talking with the receptionist at the hotel. We were very tired after a long day of driving and called the hotel about 7 pm. The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful. She told us she had 2 rooms left so my husband said we were about 10 minutes away and please reserve the room for us. When we walked into the lobby, the lady had the paperwork and a room key ready! She was just great. Our room was large and clean. The next morning the breakfast was delicious. I would definitely recommend this also because of the location. It is just north of Sioux City, IA and very easy to get to from the interstate.

Stayed here one night; room was everything advertised. Room was clean, spacious and the mattresses were comfortable. Did not try the breakfast, so can't comment as to it's quality. The hotel was easy to find just off the interstate, but did not hear any road noise. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling in the area.

We recently stayed here again after not being here for about a year. We were pleasantly surprised and pleased that the rooms had new carpeting, remodeling, new bedspreads, curtains, bathroom-everything! Cant wait to be there again! they welcomed us back by name as well!

Everything I was expecting and more. Quiet, convenient location. Convenience store adjacent. Pool and spa were clean and well maintained. Courteous staff, good breakfast, everything I have come to expect from CI&S!

Stayed in the hotel for one night. Check in was very fast, but we got the wrong type of room. One call and one minute later, we were standing in the right room!
Room was clean and nice. LCD TV was nice, but no 'real' HDTV, only analog. This could have some improvement.
Breakfast was not as expected. CI&S usually has real plates and cutlery but over here its all plastic. Also the 'hot' items are microwaved ones, the 'kitchen' exists of microwaves and fridges. Not the scrambled eggs you really want to eat. Fresh fruit was the deep-frozen kind, uneatable.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I reserved this hotel for a Saturday Sunday night stay in late July. Through Country Inn's website I got a promotional rate of $71 a night for a room with 2 queen beds. When we got to our room I noticed it did not have a microwave and refrigerator as advertised on their website. I asked the front desk clerk about this and was told not all the rooms have them as they are refurbishing some of the rooms. She said she would check and found the was a room with a king bed available that had the micro and refrigerator. Since we had brought cold food for a reunion we were attending we opted for the room with king bed so we had use of the refrigerator.
The room appeared to be clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel has a complimentary breakfast that offered waffles, eggs, sausage, breakfast potatoes, biscuits and gravy, cereal, fruit, yogurt, bread, bagels, rolls, juices and coffee. There were also chocolate chip cookies at the front desk throughout the day as well as coffee any time of the day.
There is a small swimming pool and whirlpool - the whirlpool was the right temperature and had quite a few jets making it a nice relaxing place after driving.
There is a restaurant attached to the hotel and a gas station/convenience store next door. If you want other restaurants you would have to travel to another exit. The only other businesses
around the hotel were clinics and offices and residential homes.
Overall this is a nice hotel with good service.
