“Excellent Value”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

Good 3 star hotel - excellent staff, hot breakfast included and is well done, good variety of food. Bed was SO comfortable. Rooms are large, microwave and small refrigerator and coffe machine, bathroom large, nice amenities, flat screen TV, quiet. Nice for a longer stay. Free Internet. Can't go wrong. Woody's restaurant is next door, good if you don't want to wonder too far from the hotel. Would not hesitate to come back.

Room Tip: three level hotel - choose the level that you feel best at.

This is my first time staying at a Country Inn & Suites and I'm glad I did because they've opened up my eyes and shown me that less is more. Upon arriving late to the hotel after a long flight, I was welcomed by the sweet smell of fresh baked cookies. I'm not going to lie, I did take 2 to munch on as I checked in! The front desk manager was very cheerful and attentive, a nice surprise since it was almost midnight. He was very helpful and knowledgable about the property, which I appreciate.

The room is what you would expect. Twin beds, flat screen TVs, desk and chair. Both the room and bathroom were spacious and clean and I felt overall that the property was well maintained. To my surprise, the pillows were super comfortable and I enjoyed the shower and shower pressure.

Check-out was such an easy process and the bonus breakfast buffet is a nice touch. All of the employees were super friendly with warm smiles and greetings. All I have to say is that this place is pretty awesome. What I loved about this hotel, is not the property itself but the experience...I truly felt at home here and I think that's what Country Inn & Suites is all about.

Stayed here for a week on business and like the in room amenities. On the down side, the desk and chair are not really suited to working. The room was dark, even with all the lights on - and did smell a bit musty. Good choices at breakfast. Overall positive experience at this basic motel. I would avoid the restaurant next door unless you have no choice.

This was our first time we stayed at a Country Inn & Suites and it was a positive experience. The desk clerks and manager were very friendly and helpful. The amenities were great. We arrived at 1:30 a.m. after a late flight and were pleasantly surprised that the breakfast area was open. We were able to put enough food together for a meal. The rooms are nice with a real door between the bedroom and living room area. There is also a nice little kitchenette with a frig, microwave and sink. The bathroom had a long enough counter so that toiletries could actually be unpacked. The only drawback was the room was a little outdated but a Residence Inn would have been at least $75 more a night so that was a trade off we were willing to make. We stayed a total of 9 nights and even received a nice email from the manager Sharon when we returned home. We will definitely stay there again in the future!
I wish I could say the same about the Country Inn & Suites in Clive, IA. Please read our review and beware of Clive!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the third room so the traffic noise is subdued! It also helped that we ran the fa...

Up until our final few moments of our stay everything was fine. On our way down to the lobby to checkout we got stuck in the elevator, a very warm elevator I may add. We were only stuck for about 20 minutes but it seemed to be alot longer.

After things were fixed with the elevator and we got to the lobby the staff that helped get the elevator working again just walked away, did not ask us how we were doing or apologize for the mishap. Trust me I was not looking to get compensated for getting stuck in the elevator, but a simple " Sorry" or a staff member just asking us how we were doing was all I was looking for.

While checking out nothing was mentioned to us about getting stuck in the elevator by the staff member checking us out.At that point I just dropped the issue and left.

Up until getting stuck in the elevator everything about our stay was average, the rooms are average, the breakfast was average, nothing really jumped out at us about this place. I could not find the business center, I don't think they have one, they do have two computers in the lobby but you have to stand to use them.

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. I appreciate your feedback as it helps us know areas that need improvement. I can not apologize enough for having been stuck in our elevator. These situations are rare and when they happen can be very stressful. I will speak to those involved and convey your feelings how they reacted or didn't react. As you had enjoyed your stay up until that point, to have this be your last impression, I am truly sorry.

Thank you again, and many apologies,

Country Inn and Suites in Plymouth is a great choice if you have friends or business in the area. It's about 8 miles from downtown Minneapolis, so if you're wanting to do any site-seeing, I suggest you stay elsewhere.

The staff of this property that I encountered were all really friendly and made you feel welcome. The rooms were clean and spacious and my room had a microwave and mini-fridge.

Pros:
- Great Staff
- Spacious Rooms
- Quiet Location
- In room microwave and refrigerator
- Two Pools
- Nice restaurant next door with outdoor patio

Negatives:
- Far away from the action
- I've had a better shower experience with other brands; cheap shower head

If I had to come back to Plymouth, I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: I stayed on the third floor in room 332. It was a nice room.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel and for complimenting my great staff. They truly enjoy knowing that they made a good impression.
I will look into your shower head as I have not encountered this with our current model.
Our location is central for many areas in the Twin Cities, Lakes and Shopping. I'm sorry that we were a little distant for you visit, but hope that you visit us again someday in the future.

I was in the cities for a 6 day stay. I chose this hotel for the price and location which included a King room, mocrowave, fridge, and breakfast. I really enjoy Country Inn and Suites. I asked for a quiet room and was on the third floor with a lovely view of a nature area and enjoyed birds that sang and sang. The staff were very helpful. There is is a bar/restaurant attached that was very good as well. Location is right off of Carlson Parkway so you are close to everything. Perfect for me.
