Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Columbia, MO

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Rooms and amenities are decent but for half the price you could get the same accommodations down the street. Nothing special about this place. I was thinking that it could be similar to Embassy Suites but its not. Book elsewhere to get more value for your money.

Absolute oasis after driving 15 hours! I wish we could have just stayed there!

We had a very pleasant stay while dropping student off at University of Missouri. The room was clean, quiet and well appointed. Staff was helpful and positive.

We loved the staff and pool. We where a little disappointed at the state of our room. The heater didn't work, and we where settled in by the time we realized it. Shower fixtures where loose, drywall was starting to come loose. Would be a great hotel If they'd put some time in maintaining it.

Eeesh. Where are the front desk clerks? They were hard to find. Weak or no coffee and juice at breakfast and kinda gross with no tongs for pastries. The whole hotel has a funky smell. The paper goods (toilet paper and tissues) were extremely rough. Sorry, just telling it like it is. P.S.,What's the deal with the stale cookies?

Room was very clean. Comfortable beds. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Good breakfast. The front desk had a list of restaurants, but many were downtown. I know downtown is not that far, but travelers might want to eat a little a little closer to thr Country Inn. A list of these closer restaurants might be helpful. Pleasant stay and will stay there again.

We stayed here after a long day on the road. We could not believe how clean our room was. It was spotless. Room was quiet, which allowed for a good nights sleep. The next morning we enjoyed one of the best breakfasts I have ever had at a hotel. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Great hotel located near downtown Columbia! The price was perfect and we had a nice room.

I stay here frequently. I travel to CoMo 4-5 times a year on business. I like this hotel because I can get a suite for less than a room in most other cities I travel to. This stay was unusual in that the bathroom had a leak, the housekeeper took all the soap and shampoo out of the bathroom (discover while in shower) and the smoke detector in the room next door that smelled like it was being painted was beeping keeping me awake. That said they addressed every issue and I will stay again. Still the best value in CoMo.

I stay here every time I come to Columbia for the True/False Film Festival. The hotel is clean, the staff are friendly and the breakfast is good. It's close to the downtown area so it works out well if you plan on going to the festival.

We went on long road trip from IN to CO and would highly recommend Country Inn & Suites 1 bedroom suite! Two Queen Beds, a lot of living space with TV in bedroom & living space. Very Clean & Great Breakfast. Excellent Value.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

I was pleasantly pleased with my 2 night stay. My room appeared to be recently updated and was very clean and comfortable. The hotel lobby and other areas were not lavish but very clean, updated and very functional . The breakfast bar was great with common breakfast food, but the waffles and omelettes were especially good. The front desk folks were very helpful. I would definitely stay here again while in town if necessary.

We enjoy staying here. The room is VERY clean, warm, the shower has good water pressure and is hot throughout the entire shower. The bed is very comfortable, the pillow selection is great, the linens are crisp, yet soft and fluffy. The internet is great and the breakfast is wonderful also, always has fresh fruit and eggs. Thanks for providing a place we can come to exhausted and leave refreshed.

Desk folks very nice; room large and well-furnished, pool area nice (water warm!); quiet (even on a football weekend); breakfast was VERY good (best eggs, ever); very good value (even though more than I usually like to pay).

I love this hotel they are great to me every time I come to town. The suit is quiet and comfortable. I love having a couch to relax on. The breakfast is okay. The place is clean a can be. I stay in Columbia on business and could and have stayed everywhere but this is the best!

My husband and I like to stay at this hotel when we visit Columbia a few times a year. We don't feel cramped in the room and the mini fridge is a great perk. Very clean and no problems with the staff.

Clean, large room, non smoking, normal breakfast, and very good value. Saved $40 compared to the usual Hampton Inn we usually stay in and it was very similar for far less money. Great stay for the money.

We usually stay here when we move in or visit our son at Mizzou. This is our fourth time staying here. Breakfast seems to be better than most complimentary breakfasts we have had. Overall works for us.

Great location, right off the highway, and yet our room looked out on some trees. Very serene. Enjoyed the pool, but it was a bit small. Lots of parking that could be accessed from the front and back. Room was very nice, clean and comfortable.
