Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Cedar Rapids North

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for a soccer tournament and enjoyed ourselves. Few little issues like some stains on a pillow and blanket, but the staff was amazing at fixing any issues we had. Enjoyed being able to watch a game or two in the lobby/dining room after our games as well. Mattress could use an upgrade, but other than that, we slept pretty well.

The pool was not good. Water was ice cold & hot tub didn't work. Paint was peeling & floating in the water in both the hot tub & pool. That is the only bad review that I have. Breakfast was good.

Phone didn't work in the room, TV in living room didn't work in the room. Front desk clerk had to answer phone in the middle of checking us in due to a call from someone from "prison". Hmmm.... That all said... the breakfast in the am was fabulous. The young lady in charge of that did a great job. But.... exactly 10:30 she shut it down and all of the staff came down to eat the left-overs. Nice perk to the job I guess. The room was big and appreciated the pet policy...but once again.. our dog is a therapy support dog for our son with autism and the nice lady at the front desk talking to someone from prison... said they still had to charge us. Granted only $25 so didn't argue....but I guess she wasn't familiar with therapy support dogs or the hotel policy is messed up. The room was very large....so even though all the above...I probably would stay again.

Could hear everything going on in the hallways, and in the rooms next door.

Was pleasantly surprised when the staff stated the pool and hot tub were open 24/7. I usually check in so late I am unable to use those amenities. Staff was very fast and friendly. I will most defiantly be checking back in on my next visit to Cedar Rapids.

Very good facility, Bkfst was excellent, was pleased with 1st trip to Cedar Rapids. Met our needs well!!

This hotel has a great location for getting around Cedar Raids and down to Iowa City.

Overall the hotel was good except the pool wasn't heated and the whirlpool was lukewarm.

good place, good parking, great location, cedar rapids is okay

I attended a fund-raiser orchestrated by my daughter to benefit the Brad Groothius family, who recently lost their Mother. It was an awesome day (Sat.) and everyone, both at the event as well as the hotel, was very kind and accommodating!

Our suite was spacious, arranged well and the bed was comfortable. I wished we would have had enough energy to enjoy the pool at the end of a busy expo day. Maybe the next time. We also found the breakfast selection great. We felt spoiled all the way around

Awesome experience, we will definitely be back. Staff was very friendly and welcoming.

My son and I stayed while on a college your and found a few issues: 1. They put us in a handicap-equipped room which was problematic due to my son's height of 6-3 and everything at wheelchair height. 2. No maid service was provided. 3. The breakfast was less-than desired with food that was not fresh and no ability to take food back to the room; no plastic utensils, etc. 4. My son slept on a sofa bed which was not comfortable.

We have been looking to stay here for years. The website said it would not hold 6 people. We left two of our children behind with relatives to stay here. This room would hold all 6 of us and then some. Wish we would have known years (over 13) ago

Planned this stay for a meet in the middle girls night for friends around eastern Iowa....we loved the suite found the seating comfortable plenty of space for food fun and laughter. The beds were super comfortable. The group of us commented on how quiet the location was even tho it is close to I 380. Disappointed in the breakfast in the am we were down before 8 AM and there were no plates or utensils or items to pick from as the one person working in the breakfast nook seemed a bit overwhelmed....once it was ready the breakfast was yummy....we plan to stay again in 6 months or so for next girls nite out... oh Yeah its a pet friendly hotel too....didn't need that service but was fun to see others pets....

Location was a plus. Check-in was good. Rooms were spacious. Breakfast was a plus and worker kept things stocked. Price was right and check-out was quick. We enjoyed the convience of having a kitchen area in the room.

It was ok. Nothing really good or bad about it. Bit expensive for what you get.

This hotel has consistently offered good value for the cost of the room. Rooms are comfortable and clean. The availability of breakfast and the manager's reception at the end of the day makes if very convenient to get something to eat when you don't have a lot of time for meals. The location is very convenient, just off the highway. It's a very good and economical choice!

We were in town for a graduation. When we arrived we needed suggestions for dinner. The gentleman behind the counter was able to point out an area with lots of great restaurant. Loved that the pool was still open when we got back from dinner. Breakfast was very busy Saturday morning with a baseball tournament in town, the staff was able to keep smiling and try to keep the breakfast stocked. All staff that we interacted with were friendly and accommodating. Would defiantly stay again if in town. Would recommend to families. Big rooms and pool doesn't close early like at most hotels.

This hotel was recently renovated and they have done a good job. My room was clean and comfortable. The staff is very polite and helpful. The room rate was very reasonable. They are doing a good job!
