“I Like This Place!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We stayed here for two night after using the Elroy-Sparta bike trail and discovering many of the Amish communities around the area. We found a quiet hotel with a great breakfast and excellent customer service! They had a roll-away bed already in room as requested upon check-in.

Upon check-in we were called and asked if the room was comfortable for our needs. I haven't experienced that in many four and five star hotels I've stayed in. I recently heard they were looking to a renovation in the near future which will make this place even better!

The room was a little tight for the five of us in the family with the roll-away bed in it and there was a beer bottle under one of the beds upon initial check-in but otherwise it was clean. The customer service from the check-in to breakfasts to check-out was exceptional. When in Sparta, look for the Country Inn and Suites.

We just stayed at this hotel last week for two nights. We were a family of seven so we needed to book two rooms. We were able to book adjoining rooms; however, this hotel is just strange. We could not tell whether they added on or if it was built with all the corners and shut doors. Either way, this hotel is in much need of an upgrade. The rooms were small, looked well used and did not smell clean. They were not able to get the keys to work for our second room until the following day. While the hotel is in a perfect location if you are going on either the Elroy-Sparta bike trail or the 400-bike trail, I would not stay there again. With that said, the pool area was nice and my kids enjoyed spending time there. But like I said, for the price we had to pay to spend the night there? Its not worth it. Also, three large city buses came in the second night we were there and parked right in front of our windows. So although we only looked at the parking lot before, now all we saw was a bus. We asked to have them move the bus and the answer was "no".

Thank you for taking the time to give feedback from your recent stay with us. We apologize for the concerns you shared and want to let you know that we will be beginning a renovation of our property over the next few months. While we will not be able to make our guest rooms larger, we are excited to give the rooms and public areas a refreshed new look.

Unfortunately, because of our occupancy level the night that the buses were in the lot, there was no room for them to park in another area. We did try to help relocate them, but it just was not an option and we apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.

Perhaps the next time you are in our area to bike the local trails you can pay us a visit and see how we're moving along with our renovation. We hope to see you then in Sparta!

I stayed for two nights. The staff was very pleasant. That being said, the refrigerator froze everything I had in it. The hair dryer didn't work. The sidewalks hadn't been properly shoveled. I did wipe off some of the surfaces which were not clean. Otherwise, the room was fairly clean. It was very quiet. Again, the staff was very pleasant. I also appreciated having the newspapers.

Room Tip: It wasn't busy so any room would be ok.

We were snowmobiling and stopped for the night. Hotel right off the trail. Hotel was clean and inviting. Staff was super accommodating. Rooms were cozy, clean and beds were comfortable. They have a bar and a nice pool, hot tub. The breakfast was good. The hotel was very quiet and that is impressive considering it was full due to a hockey tournament so lots of kids around. If your staying in Sparta or the surrounding area I would strongly suggest this place you won'g be disappointed. Good place for kids too.

I stayed here for a couple nights while on business. Not a lot of choices in Sparta, WI but this place is probably in the top choices you have. I would say it is a solid mid-level type place to stay. If you want luxury you should keep driving, if you need a fairly priced, safe and clean hotel with great people and clean rooms stay here. It is right off I-90 so it is convenient to get around the area. Several places to eat close by and it is about a 30 min drive to the La Crosse airport. I stayed here in the dead of winter and the room was very comfortable, nice bed and real quiet, no issues with anything really. You have free internet, breakfast, they have an indoor pool and lounge. Nice little desk area in the room if you need to work and there was a flat screen TV, small fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room they also had free coffee in the lobby.

We stayed here in November because we were doing a half-marathon in a neighboring town. The room was nice. It was big, with comfortable beds, a fridge, and microwave. The bathroom was a little small, but the sink was outside, so that was fine. It was quiet and the staff was friendly. The breakfast was nice with lots of options. We didn't partake of much since we were racing in a couple of hours, but there was an waffle iron, cold cereals, muffins, fruit, toast, etc. The only drawback was the hot tub. We tried to soak out some sore muscles, but the water wasn't hot...not even as hot as a regular bath. The kids loved the pool though. I would stay here again.
