Country Inn and Suites is where you get that Country Hospitality. It's that friendly front porch feeling that invites you to come inside, and the warm and cozy fireplace that makes you feel not-so-far from home.It's the come-when-you're hungry breakfast bar, and the extra little efforts that make the difference between us- and all of the others. It's the consistency you can count on,always at just the right price. Hospitality is what brings back-and why our guests say they will stay again.and again. 2019 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner.

Pros: Conveniently located off of I-90. Hotel was super quiet when we were there but I'm assuming because they are currently remodeling the entire hotel. It was great already but when remodel is finished it'll be excellent. Very clean despite construction.

Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, multilingual staff, and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
3,4 Mediocre
Cons: The staff could have been a lot better. After having to wait 30 minutes because their system was down they gave poor customer service. I had a couple of friends meet me because we were all attending a festival and I was taking long because of the wait. The staff tried to add more people to my reservation for an extra cost before even asking me if they were staying the night. I find it to be very poor customer service after having to wait patiently for so long and then right after try to get more money out of me.

1,0 Poor
Cons: I have stayed in this particular hotel many times, it has normally been a great experience. This stay was terrible. a very loud all night party down the hall. pot smoke from the party so strong it caused a headache and nausea and make our clothes reek. Told the front desk person, she couldn't have cared less, told me I was wrong and that they were smoking outside. IF she had actually checked the situation like she said she would she could not have helped but to smell the extremely strong smell and see the foggy air in the hallway. These are supposed to be non-smoking rooms. Will not stay there again. All the front desk lady had to do was apologize instead of telling me I was the one with the problem.

Pros: When we arrived there is not a covered portico for inclement weather! The front desk gal was pleasant but said oh by the way the elevator is broken and you have to carry your luggage upstairs and when we asked for a first floor room we were told there wasn’t one! There was only 3 cars in the parking lot so that couldn’t be the truth. Our room had stained carpet! Curtains were damaged and the sofa was not broken and not usable! I have pictures. The bathroom and kitchen were clean. The bed mattress was average but old. We had to stay due to a family death and it was the closest one to family but we will not be returning.

The room was nice and clean however the room to the side of ours was noisy the whole night. The noise was audible even from the hallway but nothing was done to deal with the noise. It was impossible to sleep. For all of the inconveniences, it felt like a waste of money. Breakfast in the morning- nonexistent.
