“LOVE LOVE LOVE this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We stayed over the weekend to attend the Miramar Air show which unfortunately was cancelled . ( This location would have been perfect for this.it is right off the 805 ) We found this to be a GREAT hotel. Customer service was excellent, rooms were clean with great updated décor , beds were comfortable, pool was a good size and heated to a comfortable temp, Jacuzzi was nice and hot, breakfast was good (scrambled eggs, seasoned potatoes, sausage, breads, homemade waffles, juice, coffee, tea, oatmeal, fresh fruit), there were homemade cookies put out @ 5 p.m. for free (my kids liked this) coffee and tea always out for free, a beautiful fire going all the time with comfy couches and a lending library. (which even had books for the little ones). I think this hotel must be about 5-20 min away from almost every activity you could do in San Diego. We ate at the Chili's in the parking lot which was good and convenient. Sunday we drove to La Jolla Cove and I would totally recommend making a day of this. There were a lot of seals right there on the beach and in the water swimming with the tourists. VERY COOL. Only recommendation I had for the staff was to put a fire pit out by the pool, now that would be perfect!

Room Tip: We were on the second floor over the pool which I liked.

I spent two days, recently, at this property for a business trip. From the moment I checked in until the moment I started my car and departed I was treated very, very well. I was welcomed by the staff and every need I had was met with a smile and satisfaction. Shawn Phillips and his team made sure that I felt at home, which I did. I was able to work from my room, partake of a nice (free) breakfast, and they even left a "gift bag" in front of my door when I forgot to remove my "Do Not Disturb" sign. The bag contained towels, toiletries, coffee, and extra cups to make sure that I was not inconvenienced. I've stayed at the Ritz Carlton and they never thought to extend that special touch to me as their guests. Kudos to CI&S! I will definitely be returning to my new "Home away from home."

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor are quiet and off the beaten path. Great for working.

We took our daughter to college and stayed in this hotel. What a wonderful surprise! Room is good size and clean. Staff is very helpful. We had a bit time and guest service agent Nadia guided us to the San Diego Cove beach to see seals. We had such a good time staying in this hotel.

I cannot complain, the service was great, the room clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good as well, breads, fresh pancakes, fruit, yoghurt, cereal... There was also plenty of parking outside. I give it 5 Stars!

We stayed here and found we were within driving distance of both Old Town and The Wild Animal Park. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. There is only 1 restaurant you can walk to, but if you drive down Mira Mesa Blvd towards the I-15 frewway there are a lot more places to eat at.
The room was nice and it's great to have a living room area.
I would defintely stay there again or at this chain in other cities.
The breakfast was great, so many choices and variety!

Country Inn & Suites is conveniently located for business travelers to Northern San Diego and Mira Mesa. Rooms are comfortable and quiet, allowing for a peaceful night of slumber. Front desk service at check-in was fast and friendly, and the staff was helpful in handling requests for information and service. A Chili's restaurant is conveniently located just across the parking lot, though there's not much else in the way of dining options nearby. Breakfast in the lobby is adequate, with a typical assortment of hot and cold options. While it may not stand out from the crowd, the Country Inn & Suites is a fine choice for those looking for a place to stay in this area.

This is first time I am actually writing a review and I think this hotel deserves it. To find a hotel which caters to all your needs and at the right price is a tough task. The location of the hotel is very good, near to work places, downtown and all attractions (drive able without pain). The breakfast though limited selection was hot and tasty.The breakfast area was big enough. The lobby was nice, and they always had cookies and lemon infused water . The rooms were spacious and clean and bathroom was very clean. The front desk representatives were really very nice and helped us in anything we needed. So overall it was an excellent stay better than what I expected at the price. I would definitely come back!!!
