Recent guest reviews

We were just looking for a decent hotel near to where family lived. We were pleasantly surprised to find such a nice hotel in the neighborhood. The ever present tea, water and cookies made my significant other happy. The morning breakfast always satisfied us with great choices. And the room was quiet. Perfect.

This hotel was great. Only reason I wouldn't give it 100 percent is the bathrooms in the pool area were pretty nasty.

Very nice hotel, great breakfast, clean rooms. Pool needed the filter changed, there were some chunks floating in the filter that had come loose.

Great staff and pool/water slide area the kids really enjoyed it.

Great hotel with a waterslide my kids loved! Room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was good, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. My only problem with the hotel was its location - its not very easy to get to. But even that is overcome by a good GPS system. All in all a great hotel that my family enjoyed.

Great experience. Good breakfast offered. The only drawback was the load door banging during the night.

As they say, "just the facts, m'am. Just the facts." Well, here is my version. Having a toddler we look for cleanliness, comfort, location, fridge, microwave and free breakfast when traveling to visit family. We also look for a pool and they had a very nice set-up with pool, hot tub and toddler pool with fountain. They also had a water slide (with specific hours that it is open). The rooms are very spacious and super-clean. The view was meh, but that was to be expected. The location was safe. The rooms were also soundproof -thank god with an active toddler.

Need the room for after a Wild game with the family the room was comfortable and the breakfast was ok. Kinda far from the Excel center.

Great price, friendly service, and location is decent. I had a great time.

Very nice room with fridge and microwave. Nice breakfast and dining area. The room we had had a very noisy fan on the heater. Staff was very nice.

The Country Inns are great places to stay. I have been to several and they are all clean, spacious and in a convenient location. This particular hotel was great as well. The only complaints I have are that there are not many channels on the TV schedule to view and the smell of the chlorine from the pool was a little strong on the second floor. The rooms have microwaves and fridges so that comes in handy. Pool has a water slide for the kids.

Room was in great condition and staff was very friendly when I arrive/left. There were only two minor drawbacks: the WiFi internet signal was rather weak and there is a trucking company across the street that was noisy in the morning.

Super staff! They offer shuttle service to local businesses which is handy when you don't want to walk to work in the rain.

kids loved hotel pool because it had a slide, an added bonus. Hotel had good breakfasts and an awesome business center
