“Great experience in Coon Rapids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

I stayed there 7 years ago and it has improved over time. They make you feel like family on long term stays. I was there for almost three months. When I am back in the area I will choose this property.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

I stayed for 1 night in July and found hotel doesn't meet standards of other country inn and suites that I have stayed at all over the United States. I am a member of gold points program. I asked for a cot for my room and after 3 hours went back to front desk and the new desk clerk didn't know anything about it. The hotel is very old and needs major work on it. We couldn't use the air conditioner as it made a clunking noise when it was on. The tub tap wouldn't turn all the way off and dripped all night long. We were on the first floor and if you stay at this hotel get a higher floor as the noise from above will keep you up all night. When we checked out 2 other guests had complaints above taps and air conditioners. The only reason I stayed at this hotel was that it was a country inn and suites and was very upset with the condition of the hotel and would not recommend this hotel.

We didn't think the hotel was very clean and the price for the room was slightly high. The internet was a little slow and the breakfast wasn't worth eating, we went elsewhere. Staff was cordial and we found the room was a decent size.

We were in town for a wedding and we were pleased with our room for the price. The only thing we found a little concerning was it looked like the people that stayed before us had streamers and ceiling decorations up that didn't get all taken down. Made us wonder how thorough the room was cleaned. The front desk personnel where very helpful and pleasant. They put a smile on your face. The breakfast was very good and the gentleman taking care of it always made sure there was enough food available and the area clean. We had a shuttle available to the wedding/reception and they were prompt and very pleasant to talk to.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that isn't by the highway. If your air is running you can't hear it but when...

We just got back from a basketball tournament in Coon Rapids. Our team stayed at the Country Inn & Suites. The hotel is an older hotel, however it is very clean, rooms are spacious, and they had both a refrigerator and microwave. The staff was very accommodating, allowing us to visit in the lobby during the evening hours. The pool is smaller but we really were not there to use it. Breakfast was the normal hot breakfast with several choices. We would stay there again. Thank you!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

We stayed there for evening while attending an event in Anoka. Hotel was easy to find, right off the freeway (but we did not hear highway sounds), also close to restaurants and Olive Garden is right across the street.

Easy parking, smooth check in. Nice lobby. Our room was just fine too. The bedding was very comfy and the great thing is that we were able to get a rollway bed for free for the evening. Only complaint in the room is that the floor in the bathroom was freezing cold, not sure how to fix that but it really sucked going in and out. I stay at hotels all the time and never had that problem before. Maybe a rug.

The hot continental breakfast was really great. Waffle machine, eggs, sausage and biscuits (not so good), donuts, pastries, etc. Oatmeal, cereal, juice, milk. It was a huge spread.

Here was the bad part though: The swimming pool was ok and actually pretty warm. Like all hotels lately the towels are pathetically small. But the worst was the hot tub, first of all it is so tiny (holds 3 people according to their sign) and it was really gross. After the bubbles turned off you could see how nasty the water was. So bad that the tiles around it are so gunked up that people have actually scratched letters into the tile. This is obviously able to be cleaned, since you could scrape the gunk away with a finger nail. Also the windows on the second floor hallway looking into the pool area were very streaky. A good deep clean in this area is needed.

Besides that I would recommend this hotel, but not if you are looking to use the hot tub.

I have been staying in this hotel once a year for over 10 years at least. It is always has been a good experience! This last time, we were given a "goodie bag" upon arrival which was an added nice touch. The room was like a little apartment which was perfect. It was nice to sit in a comfortable chair to watch TV rather than being propped up uncomfortably on the bed. It was clean and well kept up. The continental breakfast had everything from fresh fruit and yogurt to eggs, hash browns, rolls, etc...something for everyone and very delicious. I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: I like a room away from the elevators...less noise.
