On the frontage road, along US 10 heading to Detroit Lakes, is this hotel. It lacks the exterior charm and substance of other hotels closer to town. From the picture I am guessing it got some updates this summer. I stayed here in June. I was busy and am just now getting to writing this review. As always with a... More

Check-in was accomplished quickly and efficiently. When I mentioned the welcoming cookies, I was told it was time to make fresh ones. Fresh cookies and hot coffee always ready. The room was clean and inviting. As previous reviewers mentioned the TV was not a brand new LCD TV, but I don't use the TV much and the picture it had... More

I expected more from a Country Inn. They... More

We should've checked the reviews before we stayed here. Most of them are very true. I've stayed at many Country Inn and Suites and the Carlson company should be embarrassed by the standards of this one. Our sheets were stained, the floor was dirty and worn, the bedskirt was ripped, the wallpaper was coming off, the drapes had holes through... More

I have spent over 30 years traveling on the road for business. I must say, this is one of the worse hotels I have stayed in for sometime. I cannot believe Country Inn & Suites would tolerate someone being so disrespectful to their name and reputation. A lot of this can be taken care of with a little paint. Wallpaper... More
