*The recent Tulip Time in Pella got us to town and we discovered so much more while we were there. It was our first time seeing this town and we had an unforgettable time. Our stay at the Country Inn & Suites-Pella was complimentary and the views expressed in this blog post are of our own. Now, let’s get back to Gallivanting!
The season is here, and Pella does it so beautifully. It’s spring, the tulips were in bloom, and the massive rush of tourists and travelers were in full force. It was the first slamming weekend of the year that we observed and we dove right into it. Our place of lodging was Country Inn & Suites and we had a suite that was fully equipped for a taste of Pella right in our room.
Let’s start taking more time to enjoy our hotel rooms! Especially when you have one that has the nice and clean feeling that this suite has in Pella. Country Inn & Suites is a hotel chain I’ve stayed at A LOT of times. On business, out of the blue, and now on gallivants. We had a long and eventful day just livin’ the best tulip-inspired life in Downtown Pella so that meant we could use a little down time and kick our feet up. And that we did!
There’s plenty of great restaurants to experience in Pella and we sure did a good job of hitting some of them up. But sometimes getting the local take out hits the spot. We asked the Pella locals where they liked to order their favorite Chinese food and it was Oriental Express getting suggested over and over. I smashed some chicken Lo Mein noodles while laying in my comfy bed watching baseball! Take me out to the the ballgame….some other day. I’m enjoying the friendly confines of my suite in Pella, Iowa right now!
Country Inn & Suites-Pella has the lobby to meet up in, the exercise room to get ripped in, and a watery getaway that we know all you families are going to jump in. It’s and indoor pool, silly! Last one in has to order more noodles! I was the last one in. I wanted more noodles….
There’s more than one way to enjoy this suite. Sleep-in, surf the streaming channels, kick back and enjoy some local wines from the area in those nice couches. All great ideas. Or you can order more take out! Stay put and get a taste of Pella’s pizza scene and binge some movies or shows on their flat screen!
Our stay here was short and sweet, but it did the trick. Sparkling room, clean sheets, a bed I had no trouble sleeping in, and a staff that was putting in a lot of busy hours. It was a huge weekend in Pella and anyone that had a bed free was booked. We were very grateful to be staying here on this big time tulip time season. You know what else was great? Casey’s and Dairy Queen right across the street. Ice cream, breakfast pizza, pool, comfy room, and all within yards of each other. Yea, I think you have this figured out. Load up that grocery-getter and drive to Pella and pronto!
