Recent guest reviews

Our hotel room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. Very good selection of food. The pool and whirlpool were great. We really enjoyed our stay.

Nice place good breakfast, it needs a fitness center, over all good place to stay.

The Country Inn and Suites in Forest Lake had a great continental breakfast buffet! That made up for the fact that the hotel is a bit outdated and needs some cosmetic touch-ups.

I was disappointed by this hotel due to several things: -the elevator was out of order for a busy summer weekend. -smokers were below my room window and smoke smell came in through the air conditioner unit. -My door handle was not properly opening the door and I had to hit the door with my hip each time I opened it. -my room keys kept being reset somehow and I had to have them re swiped to work. -there was a noisy party hanging in the hallway near my door at 8:30pm with music coming from their room every time their door was opened. Nothing was done about it altho many folks were disrupted by it. -breakfast was not available when I was leaving in the morning.

Friendly staff, clean rooms and good breakfast but hard to get to hotel off the local road.

Was happy with the hotel, Wasn't very happy with the room, because I had booked a non smoking room an I did not get a non smoking

Country Inns are typically good places at a reasonable price. That's what this one was. Pleasant people at the desk. Always a plus. The only issue was that the interchange bridge was out right at the motel's exit, so it was difficult to get to. Not the motels' fault.

Location was very convenient (right next door) to my trip purpose as well as proximity to one of the finest well known restaurants in the area. Hotel was very quiet and staff were very courteous & helpful.

My family lives about three block from this hotel location so will be staying thefe quite often. Very nice and clean hotel and very quiet. I will be going back on Feb. 14 and have the same room booked. The desk clerk that checked me in and out was very, very nice. Great hotel!!

This was a Buisness trip,,& visit sick Navy buddy. Map quest took off route 35+miles . STAY ON 35 Exit 131. Hotel is clean, (LOVE the towels) friendly,5 star rating for the AM meal, Suprised to find yogurt, Great stay . will do again!!
