Stayed here recently. It's ok, nothing great. In fact, there are no high end hotels in temple. Bfast was free and edible, but that's about it. Bunch of 2.5-3 star hotels right next to each other. Not one really stuck out as being great

We stayed at the Country Inn & Suites for several consecutive nights. We were very pleased with every element of the hotel: rooms were comfortable, clean, well laid out, nicely furnished; very good breakfast, extremely pleasant staff. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Temple.

I got this hotel through Hotwire at a superb rate and was extremely impressed at the great deal I got. Hotel was extremely clean though they had some remodeling. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again!

Booked this hotel through Priceline and ended up with a nasty smelling smoking room. Everything smelled like cigarettes even the shower curtain. Phone did not work so I used my cell phone to call the desk. A very nice clerk apologized for all the problems we had in our room. Ok so the phone did not work. The wifi only worked if we walked out into the hallway. It was the first cold night of the fall. We turned on the heater and it filled the room with a horrible smell and set off the smoke alarm. So no phone, no heater, no wifi, and we slept in an ashtray. Called Priceline. Sorry but we can't promise a smoke free room. I made sure they were aware I was no longer a customer. I bet that shook up the whole corporation and Captain Kirk. Lesson learned. Never book with Priceline and never stay at a Country Inn and Suites.

My experience at this Country Inn & Suites was wonderful. The staff was friendly and very welcoming.
The room I stayed in was wonderful. Every thing seemed clean and the decor looked nice. I had an easy sleep because the bed was soft.
This hotel also has an indoor pool and a hot tub, which was a major plus for my two sons.
The breakfast was above average compared to most hotels that I have stayed in.
I will be staying here again if I ever return back to Temple, Tx.

I traveled to Temple for an appointment with the VA Regional Hospital. The hotel's location offered an easy, stress free route to the main gate of the hospital. Additionally, the location provided many eating establishments within walking distance.
As with many national chain hotels, I found room very well kept and most importantly...a quite environment!
As a member of the US Armed Forces, the hotel allowed me to stay at the government perdiem rate.
The only disappointment I had, the hotel's complimentary wifi signal was very weak with my room not far from the main lobby.
