“Great hotel for a family”
Reviewed 4 August 2011

We were traveling from MN to Orlando FL, and wasn't sure how far we would get - so did not have reservations. We called on the road, phone was answered quickly and we were able to inquire at to the amenities. We were looking for some specific things, like high speed internet, indoor pool and hot breakfast. Country had it all! Located conveniently off the interstate and state highway we found it immediately. Checked in without any problems, great pull up and unload area with carts available! Cookies for the kids at the desk and friendly smiles from the staff. We were pleased to see a fridge and microwave in the room. Clean beds and spacious room allowed for our family of 5 to feel comfortable. We also utilized the pool and hot tub that night. What a wonderful way to relax from a day on the road. The hotel was quiet (in fact we were the only ones in the pool) and hallways were quiet. The next morning we had a wonderful, restaurant quality hot breakfast of waffles, eggs, and sausage gravy. Hot and cold cereal, fruit, and yogurt were available along with MANY other breakfast items you would expect. Upon check out my children noticed granola bars - set up as part of the "breakfast to go" and were encouraged by the staff to take one for the road. Very generous and kind! We will look for other Country Inn's in our future travels!

Staff can really make or break a hotel visit. From the moment we walked in, we were family. Loved it! Front desk staff person was wonderful, funny, and very helpful. We had the opportunity to stay overnight on July 4th and see the fireworks in town. Staff person went above and beyond.

Also, probably the best Country Inn & Suites breakfast we have encountered. Would stay there again in a moment.

Upon arrival, the front desk clerk, Barbara Wood, was extremely rude. It seemed to be inconvenient to her if you asked any questions. As I was waiting to be checked in, I noticed she was the same way over the phone with people calling and and even made comments about the calls in my presence. Once we got past her, the room was fine and the lady who works in the breakfast area was extremely friendly and helpful. Barbara should take customer service tips from her!

The desk clerk made no attempt to call the CLUB CARLSON to sort out the problem. We were offered a handicapped room which had no vanity in bath and beds were low to floor.
Perfect for people with handicaps but not for us.
We declined this room and went back down to desk when another lady entered the conversation rudely stating that no other rooms were available. At that time a cancellation came in and we were very lucky.
No more Lake City, FL. Country Inn and Suites for us.

We stayed at this Inn last Monday night.
The staff was outstanding. The young lady at the reception desk was most helpful, great attitude and welcomed us warmly.
The room was a delight and the rest of the facility was A+.
If even in Lake City stay there.
Also the cookies are wonderful.
Breakfast is also wonderful.

Stayed here overnight on our trip to Ft Myers, FL. Heavy rain made us pull off in Lake City but glad we did. Great staff, Mary, checked us in and honored the FL Welcome Center coupon rate of $75. Excellent value, great breakfast, nice indoor heated pool for the kids and comfy room. Will definitely stay here again if back in Lake City, FL again.

Room Tip: Use FL hotel coupon book at FL Welcome Center .
