“A Comfortable Place to Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2008

I do alot of traveling around small towns of the midwest. This was a very nice place to stay. The help was friendly and accomodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Sabetha is a small welcoming town that I would definately be happy to return to.

We too were concerned about this motel based upon the earlier reviews here but in the end we felt like those folks must have had an unusual experience or an axe to grind.

We were met by a friendly and cheerful staff that welcomed us with small town charm (this is not a chicago marriott). Our room was clean and fresh as were the linens.

I don't think this place is very old at all and seemed pretty fresh throughout.

The breakfast was good...the coffee was great!

We stayed at the Country inn last weekend. We had no problems at all with the staff or accomodations.

I think the price is a bit high for what you are getting

Compared to the other motel in town, Country Inn is MUCH better.

I wish they had coffee pots in the rooms.

However I will stay here again when in that area.

We were in town for a wedding and found the country inn to be an average hotel.. Check in time is listed as 2pm. Our room was ready at 4pm. The breakfast was good and the motel seemed to be clean.

When I saw the reviews, I was really worried about about staying in Sebetha, KS, but had no choice, so booked at the Sabetha Country Inn. We had a very positive experience in staying there. The lady that I booked a room with over the phone was very friendly and accomadating. The room, bathroom, bedding and towels were all very clean and so was the lobby, halls and dinning area. The walls looked nicely painted etc. and we didn't have any broken items in the room. The price of $66.37 (tax included) per night was average I thought. They had a continental breakfast that was sufficient. We got two keys for the room, and the staff was very friendly and we were from Missouri, not Kansas. We would definitely stay there again if we are in that area again and if they have the same owners as now. After staying there, I just don't understand the previous two negative reviews. The downside of staying in Sabetha is a lack of places to eat other than a few fast food places.

I want to save you from having an experience like we had when we stayed at the Sabetha Country Inn. Aside from the dirty, musty rooms, leaky toilet, hanging ceiling peice, high prices and rude staff, we were not given a key to our room. They said someone had "walked off with the key." The hotel hasn't updated in 30 years so the keys are real keys, not key cards. This made us feel extremely uneasy all weekend, knowing that some random person had a key to our room when we didn't. There was no effort made the entire weekend to have a key made or move us to a different room after we had asked a few different front desk attendants. Staff laughed at us each time we wanted to get into our room and had to ask management or housekeeping to unlock our room for us. Following our stay we filled out a comment card (provided in each room) asking that management call us back to discuss the matter. After calling repeatedly I was told that management had crumped the card and thrown it away. Almost a month after our stay, and repeatedly calling to speak with someone, I still have never had anyone discuss this matter with me. This is simply unacceptable not to mention ridiculous. So please, avoid staying at the Sabetha Country Inn.

The Country Inn does not seem open to travelers outside of their state. They "take care of their own" first-this was shared many times. Some of the staff were pleasant, others were consistently rude.

The rooms are dirty and smelly. Many items broken. It was a great pleasure to check out. The options for staying in Sabetha, KS are slim.

  • Liked — It was centrally located for a family event.
  • Disliked — The attitude of staff overall.
  • Tips/Secrets — Check out other places in Sabetha first!
