Recent guest reviews

Polite staff. Allowed us to check in early. Provided directions when asked. Would definitely stay here again.

Room was well equipped, large, clean. It is a bit far out in Coralville if you are visiting IC, but that is the way the city has developed.

I like Country Inn because of its consistency. You know you'll get a clean place to stay with pleasant staff. No exception here.

The place was very nice and clean. Very comfortable. Did not use the pool but it looked very nice and clean. Did not partake of the breakfast but good that it is offered. Overall a good stay.

Nothing amazing about the hotel--location is convenient and rooms were fine. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast had plenty of selections. Didn't have any noisy neighbors at night.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Free breakfast was below par, most silverware dirty and spotted. General cleanliness lacked. Felt like every thing was done as cheap and bare minimum as possible.

Nice hotel. Friendly staff. Clean, comfortable room. Great price.

Was there for a swim meet so it was important to have room access to rest before evening finals. Staff let us check out very late on our last day to accommodate. Cookies and hit chocolate were a hit. Easy access to mall and restaurants.

Rooms were nice and clean, but in breakfast area there were a lot of gnats or fruit flies around the food, also the scrambled eggs were not good, did not taste like eggs at all! My hairdryer did not work, so had to sleep with wet hair :( Also the televisions went out, it was a nice night, no bad weather to blame, didn't come back on until next day. The pool was way too warm and the hot tub, which was the reason I booked this hotel, was so hot that I couldn't even sit in it,. Not a lot of "big" complaints but put all of them together and it was just a big disappointment. Wouldn't go back.

Not a bad hotel. The breakfast was pretty good and fairly big selection of food. Room was not bad. The bed slept ok but were not enough pillows. The bathroom needed attention, the sink was clogged up, the water pressure was low in the shower and chaulk was cracked in the tub.

My perception of Hotel stays are influenced by the staff more than any other factor. The staff was under considerable pressure due to a remodel in progress, but they were exemplary! Many small things went wrong in unplanned and unexpected ways, but the staff handled all of them with aplomb and worked hard to make our stay enjoyable. Except for remodel related issues, the facility met my three-star expectations. It was quiet, clean, and was well cared-for otherwise. We were traveling on business, so we didn't take advantage of the facility. There were lots of events and shopping in a two mile radius, and hundreds more within a ten mile radius. This would be a good place to stay for sporting events, especially if you had family with you! If you're extremely picky, wait a few weeks for the remodel to finish. If you're like most people and are looking for a quiet, clean, comfortable place to stay, this is a great choice..

Generally very happy with Country Inn but this one needs some TLC. The room was clean, but bathroom sink drained VERY slowly. There were only two bathtowels-both very thin. Only one nightstand lamp worked-bulb burnt out in second one. Most of the drapery hooks were broken so drapes were clumped together in few remaining hooks making them difficult to close. Pool area clean and well kept but whirlpool a little cold.

Since I live in Illinois, the reason for the stay was due to a scheduled surgery at IU Hospital very early the next morning. The location was perfect to go out to dinner and relax and still get to the hospital in a short period of time in the morning. The desk help was very welcoming and the room was clean and comfortable.

Staff was courteous. Had trouble with pop machines on 2nd and first floors. Coins were jammed on 2nd floor, I did receive money back from staff. $ bills wasn't excepted on first floor machine had to get change from staff. The tv sits to low on the dresser to see from bed comfortably. Room and pool area was clean. The hot tub and pool temperatures were very comfortable. The hotel was quite which was very nice. The sink was slow in draining though. FREE Wi-FI! and it worked very easy. Breakfast selections was good. Easy access to get to from I80. Right next to shopping and dining.

Beds uncomfortable bedside light did not work bathroom sink and tub had very slow drains the tv was very small and very low and was difficult to watch while laying on the bed. We do not intend to use this location again. We have had better value for $50 per night.

Perfect amenities for an interview business trip. Easy in / easy out.

Great experience at this hotel. We have now stayed at 3 Country Inns and find them very comfortable. The rooms are nice size and clean. The staff were warm and friendly informing us of everything available. Restaurants close by with good selection. Of course the hotel offers a complimentary breakfast. Cozy home feel.

We stayed here to avoid driving so we could shop a little and have a good meal in the area before heading home--about 100 miles away. The hotel was great! Good quality rooms in a nice building. The people at the front desk were nice, but not overly friendly and talkative, but they took care of our needs. Breakfast was good, but needed eggs to round it off. Thanks for a great night out!

Nice property. Culver's close by as is a mall. Hot tub was too hot, couldn't use it. Service could be improved with better towels and having the room vac each day. Pool was heated and clean, enjoyed the swim. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff.

The staff was friendly, the room was a bit drab but very clean. I didn't use the pool area but it looked clean as well. This hotel is right next to a beautiful shopping mall and only minutes from the University.
