“Helpful staff, comfortable place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

The staff allowed us an early check-in, which was helpful because we were going to a wedding nearby. Comfortable and clean place with decent, filling breakfast. Easy highway access. A good place for a night's stop.

The Country Inn was clean, quiet and easily accessible from the highway. It was the perfect place for us to stay for one night while on a cross-country road trip. The front desk process was quick and they told us that we would receive a 10% discount at Jimmy's Char House by showing our room key. The restaurant exceeded our expectations, but keep in mind that we were not looking for ultra-fine dining. If in this area, I would definitely stay here again.

We used accumulated points to get a free evening at the Elgin Country Inn. From the staff to the room to the breakfast everything was very good. In addition, my wife and I split a better than average steak dinner at the nearby Jimmy's Char House.

Very comfortable bed and friendly staff. Rooms were kind of worn and the internet however free was slow. Very loud in hallways and the people walking all night above you. Literally nothing to do in this area. Good breakfast that was clean and tasty.

It's hard to find a place for a family of 7 that isn't ridiculously priced. Well we found one!! Big, CLEAN rooms and comfy beds. Didn't hear a lot of noise in the halls like at a lot of other hotels. Not much in the general area but that made for a quiet night. Great FREE breakfast, waffles, eggs, cereal, milk, juice and fruits.

Normal Country Inn. A little bit far from everywhere. The hotel itself is OK. Staff is really kind. There were two problems during our stay. First is the key card which didn't work properly. I exchanged three key cards and all had the same problem. I had to swipe card for 3 to 4 times to open the door. Second is the swimming pool. The smell is not good inside. I believe there were too much pool cleaning chemicals. Breakfast is good. A lot of choice. Overall, I think this hotel is OK but something need to be improved.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

The decor is original not modern but the size of the suite is extremely comfortable and it is very clean. The breakfast is included and you can enjoy hot oatmeal, waffles, sausages, cereal, pastries, etc. The exercise room is small but is equipped with the essentials. The staff was very serviceable. I was checking out at 3 am and the front desk person asked if they could make me coffee before I left. I was able to check in at 10am without a problem. Convenient to highway and many strip malls, chain restaurants. Great for the value.
