3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The bed was comfortable and the check-in was quick and friendly.

The hotel was pleasant and clean however there was only one staff for check in and check out which created extended wait time.

The room was so nice! It was very clean which is always a plus

Hotel very clean, very helpful staff. Did not use the pool. Very noisy neighbors from Hallway but no noise in the room!!! All and all a great stay. Only disappointment was breakfast on Monday. There was breaded chicken as one of the hot menu items. Who puts chicken on a breakfast buffet? Where's the eggs?

Convenient to the highway but a bit outdated. Grill next door was quite run down and I ended up having to drive pretty far out of the way to find another place that would have different food......

Easy to find location. Front desk help friendly and efficient. Loved the chocolate chip cookies! Room was great . No concerns. Breakfast was ok. Unfortunate they had a hot offering I couldn't eat. Everything else was fine. Will definitely return.

Country Inn & Suites never fails me. Whether we are in Minnesota or Washington. Clean rooms, friendly staff & always a treat as we walk out the door!

For the money we expected more pool was small, hot breakfast was alright, and the floors were thin as could hear our neighbor above us walking around, coughing, etc. Our room was comfortable but was disappointed when in the bathroom the previous occupants bar of soap left in the shower really didn't want to use someone else's soap. We also found the overall cleanliness to be desired as garbage cans outside were over flowing, fitness center had no towels or anything to wipe down equipment prior to using, and the pool area could have used some attention. The bright spot? The staff was very friendly. Would we stay again? Most likely not as the value was not there for what was charged.

This hotel is a very clean, comfortable, attractive place for us with a good free breakfast. It is especially well located since our family lives a five minute drive away.

This was a solid hotel. We were looking for a hotel that allowed dogs, had a pool and had 2 room suites priced well. This hotel fit the bill. The pool is on the small side, but perfectly reasonable for our 2 kids. The breakfast won't take your breath away, but it was above average, and they kept it stocked with a variety of quality items.

The front desk staff was great, I was welcomed in with a smile and confirmation that we will enjoy our stay. The room was just as they said it would be. Breakfast was hot and ready in the morning but it was good. I didn't like the fact that I was on the 3rd floor with 2 small children. But overall I would stay there again.

Our stay was comfortable and the staff was very good.

This hotel is TIRED - everything is worn, frayed, and dirty. It needs a complete remodel. It is located right on a busy freeway, and our room was noisy. A room away from the freeway would have been better. We booked this thinking that the Carlson Companies are based in the Twin Cities, and thought that this hotel might be well maintained; we couldn't have been more wrong. It is in every way SHABBY. Carlson needs to invest in this property.

My relatives all met up and stayed here having a fabulous time.

Everything went smoothly, friendly staff, excellent breakfast!

Overall I must say my experience at Country Inn and suites wasn't a bsd at all. Friendly staff, greeted with smiles and chocolate chip cookies. Would stay again.

Nice, comfortable room for a business trip. Great location, close to downtown Mpls and near a lot of restaurants.

Woke up to gang of blacks fighting outside room at 4 am and cops came. Great staff and hotel, but the ghetto rats in the area bring this hotel down big time.

My sister and I were in the Minneapolis area for 4 days while helping my son and his family settle in their new home. We did not spend much time at the motel but needed a place that was clean and comfortable at the end of each tiring day of work. This fit the bill. The beds were very comfortable; the room spacious; and we really appreciated the large amount of counter space in the bathroom. One suggestion for improvement (and this goes for most motels) is to have 2 baggage racks when there are 2 people staying in a room. Oh, and a surprising perk - they have a designated parking space for hybrid cars.

Went to the Twin CIties for spring break with the kids. The hotel is in an o.k. location, not the easiest to get to with-out a GPS, but from what I have seen, that goes for a lot of the twin cities area. Breakfast was still in a room, but the breakfeast area was slated to open the week after our visit. It was a great breakfast even in the room with fresh mixed fruit, sausage, pancakes along with some type of egg and potato each day. Cereal, different juices, and I am sure I am missing stuff. Stall was great. Rooms were clean. Loved the 24 hr coffee and cookies. Pool and hot tub are o.k. Clean and in good repair, just nothing to write home about. The sports bar next door is shut down. So the good news is there is no disturbances, the bad is there is no where in walking distance to eat and only one place in easy driving distance. If you are traveling through and looking for a good clean place to stay at a reasonable price, this is the place. It was an o.k. home base for seeing the city, but not much to do once you get back to the hotel. I would stay here again for the staff and amenities.
