The hotel staff are very friendly. The room was clean and quiet. The breakfast staff was friendly also and food was good. As a business person, I appreciate that breakfast is available by 6am. Check in and Check out process was smooth. I would recommend this hotel.

Nice hotel at an affordable price. The hotel is clean, beds are comfortable and the staff is very nice. The pool and hot tub were clean. We had a suite and were very happy with it. It had 2 queen beds and separate living room with pull out couch, microwave and refrigerator.

Large clean room with excellent sheets and towels. Lots of surface space and outlets for us business travelers. Fridge and microwave also. Nice breakfast choices. Parking was a little tight but ok. Restaurant in parking lot looked good but I went downtown. Will stay again for sure!

Decent pricing for a clean hotel. Never had any issues here. Rooms were good with working appliances. Too bad the spa wasn't working or the stay would've been better. Breakfast was served everyday freshly made. Would recommend.

Decided to splurge a little on our last night of a 10 day driving trip and get a Suite at the Country Inn. Nice to enjoy a living room setting and watch a movie and enjoy the provided popcorn. Room was clean and comfortable. I get up earlier than my wife and she was able to sleep in with the...
