Reviewed 8 September 2012

We stayed here for one night over Labor Day Weekend and had a wonderful stay. Since we had stayed here before, they upgraded our rooms to suites,which was wonderful. Both of our suites were very clean, well equipped, and comfortable. The front desk staff, housekeepers, and breakfast staff were all exceptionally friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat.

I had the opportunity of staying here as a last minute alternative. I saw their ad in a rest area hotel disount magazine and it was a great choice. Their pool and spa is open till midnight which means even if you are driving and arriving late you can still enjoy that hot tub. They do have a limited number of smoking rooms which means that smokers and nonsmokers are accomidated. Breakfast is free and has juice bagels, sausage egg patties and roasted potatoes. Overall a great value. I would reccommend it.

We live locally and had to stay away from our home for a night and choose the Country inn & Suites. We’re so glad we picked this hotel. Check in was quick and clerk on duty (Klaudia) was glad to welcome us with a warm smile. The room was clean, beds were comfortable & everything was working properly. At this hotel I was even able to get a load of laundry done and swim in the indoor pool even with it raining. What a plus!! Last but not least breakfast was a nice hot breakfast that was included in the room rate, and the breakfast ladies were so welcoming and eager to help with anything we needed! If we ever have to stay locally again this will definitely be the one I stay at!!!

As anyone who has been to Lake City before knows, there's not too much out there. Everytime my wife and I have been it has been to go tubing down the Ichetucknee. Having previously stayed at another chain hotel, we decided to give the Country Inn and Suites a chance. As noted above, it was an excellent all-around experience. We arrived shortly after midnight and were greeted promptly and shown to our room. The room was tidy, the pillows comfy and the water pressure more than adequate. We slept great and woke up to an impressive spread for breakfast. I expected the usual bagels and cream cheese, and wasn't shocked to see a waffle maker, but I was happily surprised to see biscuits and gravy on the menu. Snagging an Otis Spunkmeyer muffin was the cherry on top. Checkout was a breeze. Thanks to everyone who made our spontaneous summer trip such an enjoyable experience.

We had such a great experience at this hotel. The hotel was very clean, the staff members were incredibly friendly, helpful and responsive and the breakfasts were fantastic. The room was also fairly large and had a refrigerator and microwave. We had friends at a large hotel chain across the highway from the Country Inn and they had small rooms, no refrigerator/microwave and they had to pay for breakfast!

In the world of $100 a night interstate hotels, it's hard to beat this one. We used to stay at Fairfield Inn on our way down to Orlando. However, the last time we traveled south, all the rooms were booked at Fairfield and just about everywhere else, too. We were able to get a suite for the price of a regular room and we took what we could get. Since we've been traveling to Orlando for years, we knew right where this property was. To be honest, it looks a little dated from the outside. However, we were all impressed with our room. To find out how consistent they would be, we stayed there again on our last trip down to Florida. We found the experience to be just as great. The rooms are VERY clean and comfortable. The beds were comfy but not so soft that they gave me back trouble. The soaps and shampoos were Pantene products. Also, this hotel has a better free breakfast than Fairfield Inn. Also everybody was very polite and friendly. They certainly are on the ball at Country Inn in Lake City. They've won our repeat business.

Room Tip: 101 is close to the outer door to parking lot. It's convenient and on 1st floor. Very quiet area...
