“good value”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We were a little hesitant about staying here because online reviews were mixed, but our experience was entirely positive. Rooms were clean and well maintained and location is good relative to Holland State Park.

My friend and I booked a room at this hotel for a girls’ getaway because it was close to the towns of Saugatuck and Douglas, Michigan, where we planned to visit, but cheaper than the hotels in those towns. Summer being the high season in Michigan, we still paid $183 including tax for a room with 2 queen beds for a Saturday night stay.

The hotel is conveniently located just off the highway across the river from downtown Holland. It is not very visible as it sits behind Neil’s Dutch Village, so we drove through the village shops to get to it when we first got there. We realized after that if we drove straight out from the hotel towards Branns Steakhouse that was the easiest access. The lobby is roomy with a nice sitting area and fireplace. The staff were very friendly, and we were very surprised that they allowed us to check in when we arrived in the morning at 9:30 a.m. so we could stash our bags in the room and head out for the day. They do not have an elevator at this hotel, so if you have special needs, you will want to request a room on the first floor.

We stayed in Room #238, just at the top of the stairs. It was very clean, and it was equipped with a coffee maker (coffee and tea bags provided), mini-fridge and microwave. The bathroom is small but adequate, and there is an additional small vanity and mirror just outside the bathroom, which was nice for two ladies trying to put on makeup and do hair in the mornings. Pantene hair products are provided.

Complimentary coffee and tea are offered throughout the day, and there were cookies upon arrival as well. There is a good size breakfast room to the right, (larger than many I have seen), with a good offering each day including a few hot items such as scrambled eggs, sausage links, potatoes (cubes…cooked through but lacking crispiness, fine w/salt and ketchup), waffles, cold cereal and oatmeal, fresh fruit (whole and fruit salad), and the standards such as yogurt, mini-muffins, standard donuts, bagels and toast, and coffee, tea and juices.

We had dinner at Brann’s Steakhouse and Sports Bar Saturday night in front of the hotel a few hundred yards. Good steak dinners and standard sports bar fare at a decent price (separate review), yeast rolls with cinnamon butter…yum.

I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking to stay in the Holland/Saugatuck/Douglas area for the cleanliness, convenience to area points of interest and good value.

Room Tip: No elevator here, so if you have special needs, request a ground floor room.

Our tv reception is fuzzy so you can barely see the picture. Normally not a problem unless you've been driving all day and just want to relax! Our air conditioner is leaking so it smells bad and the inn is full so we can't be moved. The rooms are nice enough though other than those 2 things. Grateful for the nightlight in the bathroom.

This hotel is a little off the beaten path, which appeals to me. The rooms are all recently redone. Check-in and out are easy, staff is very friendly. It was an ideal place for a mini-respite for someone who needs it, as I did.

Hotel is located in a relatively convenient spot. Pool and fitness center appeared clean, but I did not use either. The breakfast area was well stocked with decent selection. Room was well appointed, spacious, and clean. Good value!

The Country Inn sign can be seen from the expressway, but not the main access road. It is tucked away behind an out let mall. We drove almost two miles in a circle to find the hotel driveway. The Inn was clean and well maintained. They seemed to be understaffed and a little stressed. We were there on a Wednesday and every room seemed to be filled. The inn was overwhelmed at breakfast, the poor lady could not keep up it took us three attempts over a two hour period to get a waffle, we ate standing up.

The exterior of this hotel doesn't do it any justice. The room was very clean with modern amenities. The hotel is located next to an outlet mall with a theatre. However, the indoor pool and fitness room are a joke. The pool was small and dirty.

If you're not looking for a hotel with a nice pool, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
