Reviewed 21 January 2009

I stayed at this location during a winter storm. Nick the front desk clerk was very nice. If you have to talk to anyone up there talk to him, The other staff members were more concerned about doing the job, rather than making me as a guest happy. Everyone was still very cheerful.

The room itself was beautiful. I was told they had just completed a remodel of the entire hotel and you can tell. The room was a little pricey, but you get a lot with it. you get internet, free breakfast...and it is huge. Free cookies and hot coffee.

The area is great too. There are lots of restaraunts and plenty of places to get the things you need when stranded and it was so much fun swimming in thier super warm pool while it snowed out the windows all around us. I reccommend this place to anyone that needs a place traveling along I35

A standard but nicely appointed Country Inn and Suites hotel. We booked by telephone "on the road" late in the evening and arrived at almost 11pm. Friendly staff and a an excellent, if typical motel-style, room. Breakfast was sparse but adequate (if you ignore the hot food). Very adequate for a quick overnight stay.

Hotel has a non-standard and deceptive cancellation policy. They say you may cancel a reservation within 48 hours of the day of arrival. What they do not say is that they mean cancel by midnight of the morning of the day of arrival even though you can not check in until after 3PM.

The reality is that you really have to cancel 3 days before your arrival. This is not an industry standard policy nor is it evident on their web site. Further they do not send email confirmation of the reservation so the unwary traveler may be caught with unnecessary charges.

I was able to get a new key with no photo id or questions asked. The hotel staff gave out my room number instead of calling my room.

I just returned from a business trip and stayed at
the Country Inn. For the most part the hotel is fine,
but the room I stayed in was a bit too warm for my
tastes. Other then that I would recommend this place.
