A nice hotel, but showing it's age. Cigarette burns on the bathroom counter, musty smell in the hallway. But the rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. Front desk was not manned sometimes. But they came quickly when you rang the bell. Quite a few cigarette butts by the back door parking lot and smoke smell carries easily to... More

If you are looking for a consistently modern, clean hotel with all the amenities and a good hot breakfast, Country Inn is the place to go.

Dirty rooms. Dirty hotel. Stains on curtains. Floors never vacuumed. Breakfast below average. Check in staff not friendly. Trash outside not picked up. Air control in room difficult. Guests were loud. Thought ceiling was going to cave in.

Stayed one night after a long ride in the heat. First thing we walked in our room and saw 2 pillows on the floor and a spray bottle by the bed. Asked front desk... apparently isn't common practice to put pillows on floor. She could not confirm if room had even been cleaned. Move to another room when I noticed... More

Thank you for reaching out and writing your review. We are sorry you were not satisfied with our hotel after your long travels. The conditions you experienced during your time with us are not ones we condone and I am disappointed they were present at all. The leaking by the breakfast area was actually a new development and has been... More
