We have stayed at this hotel on two separate occasions while researching and then purchasing a condo in the area. Nice touch at the check-in counter with having free cookies for those checking in. :-) Rooms were very clean and quiet. Staff was friendly, didn't act like we were an inconvenience as we have experienced at other hotels. Breakfast was good, staff even had to go options out in lobby, like fresh fruit and packaged muffins. Location is convenient to a few fast food places, restaurants, gas stations and that ever famous Wally World! :-p Would stay again if needed a hotel in the area.

Came into town for a family vacation. When I walked into the hotel it was just a homey feeling. The front desk people were very friendly and were willing to help with any of our needs. The breakfast was great in the morning. So many options for our family. We met the managers and they we very friendly as well and very helpful. Would love to come back to this hotel and stay on our next vacation!!!

We decided to catch a Rays game last minute so finding a hotel close to the game was going to be near impossible we thought. We were very happy with our choice to stay here as the proximity to the field was convenient and the hotel was extremely nice and clean. The staff was great and the breakfast hit the spot in the morning. The king sized bed was also very comfortable and we both slept well.

I stayed here last week on business. First time In a country inn and was impressed. As nice as the Hampton Inns I usually choose. Comfortable and good sized room with a nice desk and chair, couch and a decent TV. Nice hot breakfast with lots of choices. Staff were very friendly and gave me some great choices for dining (BJs up the street is a great brew house/restaurant). Very pleasant stay, I'd go back.

Dear Executive Chef,

Thank you so much for writing such a praising review of our hotel. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we really appreciate your kind commentary.

Its seems that many people are unfamiliar with the Country Inn and Suites brand, but we all like to think we are as nice as any Hampton or Fairfield Inn. Thank you so much for taking notice.

I am also a big fans of BJ's, and we are thankful for having such a nice establishment so close by.

Thanks again for choosing our hotel!

Best Regards,

Patrick

I stayed here for two nights recently to take my son to a Ray's game, and just to get away. The hotel was close to a mall and a theater, restaurants (and a starbuck's!). The room was big and the hotel was very clean. It looks like it must be pretty new. They had a great hot breakfast and my son loved the pool and the, as he put it "awesome wifi" for his gaming thing. The people there were all very friendly, and made me and my son feel right at home. I recommend it!

We liked this hotel , it was right where we wanted to be. Breakfast is very good here . The beds are very comfortable. Make sure you look in the book for how the TV channels work. We couldn't figure that out until we saw the in room info book. The only problem I had with this hotel were very minor and would not stop me from returning to this hotel . So yes I would recommend this hotel.

Rooms are quite big and nice enough - great value! Nice swimming pool but small fitness room.
Service is great and helpful! But choose your breakfast time wisely as it can get very busy and you can find no place to sit.
The best thing about breakfast is the waffle making machine!
Would recommend for a short stay.
