April 13th to 14th 2018
My stay was comfortable. I only spent 1 night layover. PROS: Very helpdul staff. My passport accidentally fell unknowingly at the airport and I didn't realize until I was checking in at the hotel. The receptionist, Miguel Brostella, was very helpful. He called the airport and even arranged transport for me to go back to try to find it. Breakfast was good. Close to shopping and restaurants. CONS: The place needs some updating. One of the elevators was not working. Blankets can be updated. However there were some repair work being done on the premises

This is becoming habitual
Despite the fact that this is an average, in the 3.5 Star range hotel, I keep coming back. The exceptionally convienent location is hard to beat, it is nice enough, and priced reasonably. Just dont go in expecting 5 star service or nice scenic views from your room. These past two stays I opted for the "suite". Very glad that I did. It is spacious two room affair that works quite well. Ill continue to book the suite in the future. Having a separate room with a small dining table, refrigerator, coffee table, couch, bureau and second TV is nice. All in all this is a good place to hybernate for a day, or two, with a friend

Country Inn is A Ok. Nice 3.5 or 3.75 star
This is a decent 3.5 star hotel. Not great. Not bad. Nicely in the squishy center. There is a TGIF on site which is where the room service comes from. It is tasty. But don't be in a hurry. It takes awhile. There was not any view from our room, other than the cement of the building directly behind the hotel. Bed was comfortable, AC worked well. The water in the shower was warm, not hot. Parking is an issue if you have your own car, because of TGIF. If you are planning on getting room service from TGIF get a menu when you check in. Also, find out how to call in your order,. I suspect the procedure changes, as do many things in Panama. What you do is ask the security guard out front and he will move cones and let you park directly in front of the hotel. Overall, it is nice enough for the price, which is reasonable. Its closeness to El Norte is a big plus in avoiding some of the legendary traffic that you encounter driving about town. We enjoyed our stay.
