The room was clean and the hotel is located close to Walmart. The only drawback for the hotel is there is no lift.

Great stay!

This was one of the cleanest motels we have stayed in. The new renovations are lovely! The staff was very accommodating and friendly! We did find it odd that there was no elevator available, but were told that with only a two story building, that was not required. This seems to limit accessibility for "seniors" who might find steps a challenge. All in all, however, we were very impressed and would find another of these chains in the future! :)

Not what we thought.

When we got there, we found that the pool was closed and that the work-out room was also. Front desk people were extremely unhelpful. The room itself was not bad. We felt we should have known going in of the parts of the motel not in operation.

Comfortable business trip

The staff was friendly and very helpful and I will stay here again. The location was perfect for my business trip and I enjoyed being in a quieter area instead of fighting traffic.

business trip

I have stayed at many Country Inns during my business travels. I have always been pleased with the location, service and rooms. This is no exception. The staff was both friendly and helpful. I will be staying here more often in the future.

Terrible

No elevator and no attempt to help even though our situation obviously indicated we needed help . Breakfast was about the worst we have ever encountered. The air conditioner did not work. It took three times to finally get our keys to work properly. This motel is shabby. We travel a lot and this was the worst motel we have experienced. Country Inn should be ashamed.
