Reviewed 29 September 2012

We stayed the night on our way to visit family in Wellborn and will definitely be coming back. Beautiful room, very clean, comfy bed, great pool, fantastic breakfast & wonderful customer service. Our stay was so much fun. Upon check in there was a kitten outside that we made friends with, in the morning we couldn't find her. Hoping she is safe & possibly even being taken care of.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the highway, I was warned beforehand that the traffic can get loud.

I am a smoker and most rooms smell awful. Room smelled clean and was very clean. I have stayed at this hotel quite a few times. Had a problem once and they went way out of their way to make me happy. Hard to find that anymore and especialty since it was a small problem, but thanks for all their work! Every staff member I came in contact with were great!!! Please keep up the great work.

What a deal. Hotel coupons from the welcome center helped bring the cost down. Arriving late,we were impressed with the front of the hotel, looked new. First impression was great. I was not disappointed at all. Matter of fact, I enrolled in the club within the first hour of my stay. When you enter the lobby, the first thing I noticed was the smell, it was a new smell with a hint of freshly stained wood. Was shocked to find out it is not new. more than 10 years old. Mary, night shift manager was just wonderful, check in was a breeze . We had traveled 1400 miles from Michigan to Naples for a week stay at a condo that was just barely average. So we were on our way home and decided to stay here before the long way back. I am so delighted we did. I could go on and on about the room; King room, non smoking with frig, microwave and free wi-fi. Bed was so comfortable...we slept in til 830. We went swimming and used hot tub, wonderful. All was so clean and better than home. Hot breakfast with sausage, gravy, waffles, oatmeal and the other usual affair. Check out with Holly was perfect. Thank you, Mary and Holly for a wonderful end to our vacation.

Room Tip: I cant think of any room that would be a problem. Great Hotel!

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.
