Stayed 2 nights with elderly Mom & husband to attend family events near the campus. It's about three miles to Tech campus from this hotel area off I-27 OR from the other hotel "strip" on the loop. Coming in from Hwy 84 (Sweetwater/Post), this is a far quieter option and every bit as convenient (TX-84 becomes Ave Q...right after you cross I-27, turn right and approach hotel from rear side without ever getting in the interstate!)

First time at a Country Inn, and this is a very nice property! Some reviews call it "older", but I'd guess 5 yrs? Front desk guy (Roshan) was so jovial and welcoming!...teased right back with my husband who enjoys kidding around, and gave him "extra" fresh-daily cookies. Guests also get a nice little bag with bottled water, and Carlson Club members get several snack packages!

We had a 2-Q one-room suite, and it was very large for 3 people! I'm guessing main area is 12' x 24', plus bath & kitchen 'alcove.' Nice TV, great Wifi, firm & comfy beds, big bathroom (wish toilets were taller), and the kitchen had a full-size fridge, double sink, & microwave. No dishes and no stove, but plenty of coffee & hot tea options. A/C is a bit noisy, but can cool like nobody's business.

Breakfast was great...I'd say better-than-expected, even for a "full-fare buffet." 100% OJ & Apple, plus a peach juice cocktail, 3 coffee stations, cereals, fruit, pastries, waffles, plus TWO steam pans with very good eggs!...one day, biscuits/sausage/gravy/2-kinds scrambled eggs, the other day included 2-kinds omelets. Two friendly, smiling attendants are constantly replenishing.

Pool looked awesome (we did not try), and there's a gazebo in a grassy courtyard for relaxing.

You'll get peace & quiet in lieu of no walkable eatery...but try Orlando's on Ave Q & 24th. I would definitely stay here again...away from the traffic & noise of the loop. The staff makes a real difference here, as well!

When I checked in the hotel was clean, quiet, and inviting! Check In was quick, although I had to find where the elevators were, pool, breakfast room etc....In the morning I came to the desk and both of the girls were awesome!!! One was named Sandy and I forgot the other one's name but she was great too!!!! There were a couple of issues with the room maintenance wise, but the excellent housekeeping staff made up for that!! Check out was painless and Sandy was there again with Melissa this time and the GM THEY WERE ALL WONDERFUL!!!!! I will stay again if the opportunity comes up for me to go again!!!! I will recommend this hotel to my friends!

What a wonderful visit. I'm an early bird and LaNise, the night attendant made my morning a delight. She worked so hard to make me comfortable all while tending to her morning duties, setting up breakfast, passing out receipts for guests leaving etc. She gave me fresh coffee as soon as it was ready and told me some about Lubbock. She was a delight!! The hotel was clean and the room was great.

This Country Inn is especially convenient if you're heading southbound on I-27 and continuing on to US84 towards Sweetwater and I-20. Not so much if you're heading north, though. Very helpful desk staff and the room is what you'd expect. Indoor pool, but kids running around with wet feet in the elevator area made it a little sloppy. Standard breakfast fare. The location is not really close to much in the way of dining, so we had to make our way back towards the university area for dinner. One personal issue: I'm a sports fan and had two events on a Saturday night that I wanted to check on, but neither channel (TNT or ESPNU) was available on the hotel cable system. Made do, in part, with watching online with the laptop. It is set back a ways from the interstate, so noise from the highway is not an issue.

this is an older building but in good shape with large rooms and pool area. the breakfast area is large, well stocked with a very good selection of hot and cold items. the staff is very helpful and courteous. located just off I-27, it is still a quiet stay near business loop 289. I would stay there again when in the area.

Room Tip: rooms on the west side are quieter. since this is on a one way service road, read about exits and...

When you first drive in you don’t get the best impression of what you will get inside. But! Once you step inside your room you have a change of mind. I’ve stayed in a lot of different hotel before that have been more expensive and “nicer” but this one is up there with one of my favorites. The beds feel hard to the hand but when night time comes they turn into clouds! The nights I spent here where real pleasant and very comfortable. Also the employees were very friendly, specially the gentleman at the front desk. He was genuinely interested to why we were in Lubbock. I will for sure be staying in this hotel again!
