“Very friendly/accomodating Staff - Excellent Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

We stay in many motels/hotels throughout the year. We were in Grand Rapids for a bike tour and stayed at the Country Inn. The room was clean. The bed and bedding were very comfortable. The air conditioner kept the room cool. Every person we came in contact with at this motel was accomodating and friendly. The morning breakfast was excellent. You have a variety of hot items to choose from. And, delicious caramel rolls. It is much better than the typical breakfast fare at many hotels. As others have stated, they do have actual plates/silverware instead of foam plates, etc. And, the employees kept the breakfast bar well stocked during the time we were in the breakfast area. Our froom faced the highway. However, we did not have an issue with noise. We would definitely stay in this hotel again. It is also a joy to stay in a hotel where the employees have a positive attitude.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The carpeting needed to be replaced. It was ruffled up and could be a hazard particularly for older guests. The cookies were a nice touch. The breakfast was standard fare but they used real dishes and glasses.

Room Tip: Rooms to the back have a good view. There is no elevator.

The lobby was very inviting with a homey feel to it. The check in was easy, they gave us the top floor like i asked. The room was clean and nice! I didn't need to use it but they had free laundry soap and dryer sheets in the laundry facility. The breakfast was good. I couldn't believe they use real dishes! i would stay here again! While you're in town if you have time its Judy Garland's home town. Look her up.

This hotel has seen better days. The carpet in the upstairs hallway is way beyond need of replacing. Besides being dirty and worn it is also pulled up from the padding in several spots along the hallway and is a trip hazard. The room was ok but the beds are very small and uncomfortable. The TV channel selection was very good. The free breakfast was also decent although suprisingly had no yogurt. Will stay elsewhere in the future.

Clean building and rooms. No stale smell like some motels. Friendly service with home made cookies, 24 hours in the front reception. The indoor pool was not freezing like most are and with a nice hot tub.
The breakfast was good and welcoming.

I stayed at the Country Inn and Suites in Grand Rapids Minnesota on a recent road trip. Despite being a busy Friday night, the front desk staff was very friendly and welcoming. My room was pristine and the beds were very comfortable. I was informed of all the amenities available to me.....including hot drinks and cookies in the lobby area. The price was very reasonable and included a hot breakfast. I will continue to use Country Inns in the future........ Great value for the price!
