“Great Hotel with a great nights sleep”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

This was a wonderful little gem of a hotel with amazing front desk staff. I've stayed here once before but forgot how charming this little hotel was. The hotel is conveniently located just off of I-380 and less than a mile from the Eastern Iowa Airport. They also offer shuttle service to the airport and downtown shopping areas. I had booked just a regular room through a discount travel site, not really caring where I would stay while in Cedar Rapids. When I found that it was the Country Inn & Suites, I called as requested to pay the difference to be upgraded to a suite. The hotel was accommodating an went above and beyond what they could to fulfill my request. The rooms were clean, the sheets were white and the bed slept like a dream. The breakfast, which starts at 4:00 am so they can feel people catching early morning flights, was great. For the price, this was an amazing hotel that I had forgotten about. I'll definitely stay here again.

I arrived to stay for 2 nights. I also made a reservation for my daughter & her family for 1 night. We all enjoyed the location as it was only 5-10 minutes to Kirkwood Comm College Recreation Ctr where the Iowa stae gymnastics meet was being held. The staff was very helpful when we asked for directions & recommendaions for restaurants. Their directions were easy to follow. I was in a 2 room king suite which was perfect for me and great when the grandkids came in to visit. My daughter & family were in a 2-queen room that they loved especially because of the refrig and microwave. There was an A & W and a McDonalds right by the hotel but it was only a short drive to many other sit down restaurants. It was fairly close to Cedar Rapids downtown, Iowa City, & Coralville (Coral Ridge Mall). The service was great; everyone was very helpful & friendly.

I missed my flight and had to stay near with airport and was pleasantly surprised as I usually stay at Marriott chains. Very friendly and gave me a distressed traveler rate with an upgrade in my accommodations. For the price, it was a very good experience and I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This hotel is near the airport, the south east area of Cedar Rapids, so if you're there and want limited drive time this may not be your best option. That being said, the rooms are very spacious, extremely clean and updated decor. Staff was fantastic and very accommodating! The breakfast has many hot/cold items to select from. The wireless internet was iffy, but I was also in an end of the hall room.
All in all, I will choose clean over location any day and will always make this hotel my 1st choice when in the CR area!

Stayed here in November 2013. Check in was smooth. Room was very clean. Lots of conveniences, good sized coffee maker, refridge and microwave. Quiet nights rest in a comfortable bed. I was dropped off, so I didnt have a car til the morning. I ordered pizza from Caseys, which was next door. When I walked over there, I learned that I had actually ordered it from the Caseys at the truck stop, a short drive away; the Caseys next door had a Burger King inside, but no pizza shop. I didn't feel save walking to the highway offramp because of traffic, so I was a bit stuck. I remembered the hotel had a shuttle, so I went back and asked. It was no problem; drove me over and waited while I secured my dinner. I can see that the shuttle would be great for those that are flying in or out, too.

The only reason this review was not five stars is that this is a value hotel and not meant to compete with a higher end, 5 star hotel. The table and the dresser was a bit tired, but everything else--the stuff that counts--was great.

I will book again when I am in the area.

Country Inn & Suites is a breath of fresh air to what one might expect in a heavily traveled airport adjacent to the airport. We stayed here the night prior to the Kirkwood College TGIF experience for high school students.

This hotel was clean, well maintained, with fast & friendly service, a good assortment for breakfast and strong coffee. I get really picky about beds, sheets, blankets and pillows and was comforted to find sparkling white sheets, fluffy fresh pillows instead of tired, flat or lumpy:) A puffy duvet comforter enveloped in sheets was just right. A huge TV and unexpected microwave and fridge completed the room. Everything was clean including carpet- no stains or fuzzy dust near the baseboards.

This will be my choice for travel in/out of airport and adjacent to Kirkwood. Country Inn & Suites fulfills beautifully!

I was on my way from Mn to Missouri and they recommended me this Hotel for been a step away from the 27S and an easy to jump in and out.
I recommend it 100%, didnt have a reservation and the ladies at the door welcome me and made me feel like at Home!! The romos are very nice , comfortable bed, nice tv, fast internet and very well served breakfast. ( careful...from 4am to 9am so dont over sleep)
The hotel its all clean, no smoking signs and good parking lot. It has a shuttle if u are coming from the airport that you can arrange for them to pick and drop u off.
Nice nice nice!!! and has a pool!!
