Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Cedar Rapids Airport, IA

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel is in process of remodeling. Our room would have been very nice, except for the rug. It definitely needs replacing. But it is the last of the remodel process. Breakfast was good. A good selection of items. Breakfast area was clean. The elevator failed just moments before we were going to check out. They did have a repairman on his way. We would stay here again.

Front desk/Check in and check out (different staff person) was great. Friendly and fast. Some remodeling going on but that did not cause any inconvenience. Room was not completely clean (trash in can) and bathroom not clean. Tub was old and stained. Bed comfortable. TV and HVAC fine.

I was pleasantly surprised that the hotel had everything I asked for. It seemed moderately up-to-date and well maintained.

liked the fact they served EARLY breakfast being so close to the airport!! that was awesome!

We were greeted by the front desk check-in person, who was absolutely wonderful. She helped us check in quickly. What a smile! When we checked out a couple days later, she was back on duty and again, that smile greeted us and wished us well. Rooms were comfortable, nice lobby, hot breakfast served 4:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Who keeps breakfast available that long?! Definitely recommend this to friends or anyone.

Room was clean. Only complaint were the cigarette butts outside. The benches outside the hotel, by the entrance, had several cigarette butts on the ground in front of them. i guess that's where staff/guests sit to smoke their cigarettes. Not very appealing to the eye.

Comfortable and clean. Would stay here again.

Very convenient, couldn't get better location for the airport. SHuttle ran smoothly and staff was very pleasant.

Close to the airport. Awesome hotel. Nothing to complain about.

This site is going under a renovation. We didn't know it at the time we booked as the reviews didn't mention anything yet so it must have started just afterwards. The changes they are making are very nice. The breakfast area has very limited seating! The a/c unit in our room took all evening and all night to get the room to the temp we wanted but then it was ok the rest of the stay. There was a minor plumbing issue next door that also affected our room but they took care of it right away. The big complaint is trying to understand WHY they would shut down the only elevator the day before the Labor Day weekend, one of the busiest weekends of the summer, a sold out weekend for the hotel, for the entire weekend for maintenance for the reno when no work was being done on it! Would we stay here again? Yes. It looks like the renovations will be very nice when they are done, the location was great for us and the staff was very nice and accomodating.

I was there just for one night--convenient to airport and shuttle is provided. The carpet was not clean; and there was something wrong with the bathroom sink-faucet would not give cold water.

The carpet was dirty; unusual smell in bathroom.

The breakfast was great. Hotel staff very accomodating

it was just okay.

The location is close to the airport but noise was not an issue. It is also a close enough to the Amana Colonies for easy access. This was a much nicer option than some of the hotel chains located around the Amanas. Breakfast options were basic but offered hot eggs and waffles. Staff was very friendly and helpful. No in room microwave or fridge. For the price I would think this would be a given.

This hotel didn't strike me as good or bad. The airline didn't deliver my luggage and when I requested a toothbrush at the front, they were out. Mini fridge also proved to be a $10 a day charge which I thought was a bit much. The lobby was nice and cozy and the business center proved adequate for my needs. I'd say it was a bit over priced however. VERY close to the airport and downtown Cedar Rapids is a short drive.
