Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Minneapolis West
Ranked #1 of 8 Hotels in Plymouth
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Stayed here during my cousins wedding. Was really worried as the hotel was booked solid. Turned out great as there were two pools n hot tubs to avoid overcrowding of all the kids... in the morning the continental breakfast was stacked high and was constantly replenished. I was impressed, Keep up the good work. Only downfall, our request of away from kids was that we could hear airplanes all night.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am happy to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. I agree that having the second pool area is a huge benefit especially when the hotel starts to fill up. This truly sets us apart from the other hotels in the area during those high occupancy times. Thank you also for the kind words about our hot buffet breakfast. I look forward to welcoming you back again when you are in the area.

Thanks,
Drew Lynch

I stayed here for 5 nights and could not praise it more.Staff are so friendly and helpful,rooms are spotlessly clean and breakfast was great with lots of choice although opted for waffles everyday,they were so good.It felt more like a small family run hotel than part of a chain.Thank you for making me so welcome !

My stay was wonderful. I got there at midnight and there was a lovely fire burning in the lobby which was welcoming and comforting on a cold night. I had a long, late drive to get there so it really made me feel good. I travel many days for business by myself throughout the year so I appreciate great service and friendly people.

The front desk man was very friendly and helpful and there were awesome white chocolate macadamia cookies too!
My room was spacious and clean and comfy and a nice bag of treats of water , chips, and a fruit snacks greeted me when I walked in.
I had a great nights sleep, which helped because I had to be up and out the door by 7:30 am....The breakfast and coffee were great too!

It is a great hotel on the west side of the Minneapolis area and very close to downtown as well.

Room Tip: My room was actually two rooms with an awesome living room area and a comfy bedroom too

I stayed in the hotel for over a month. For the first two weeks I stayed in the standard room which is larger than the typical room size. The hotel provides free shuttle service to nearby malls which was very helpful in winters esp. when it was snowing. The breakfast was decent. The hotel has been there for long, so it has started showing its age, but they are in process of renovation. For the last two weeks I was upgraded to a different category of room which had separate living room. The rooms are spacious. The indoor swimming pool is great for an evening plunge.
Overall a great stay!! Loved it

My daughter and I stayed here for a night with friends. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had dinner at the restaurant, it was very good and affordable. When we got home, my daughter realized she forgot her Ipod touch in the room. I called the hotel, they found it and sent it to us.

This one's a little long in the tooth. Staff is friendly, hotel (at least on the 3rd floor) is quiet, & the rate we got was good.

However, this place has been around a -long- time & I definitely showing it's age.

Also, bed was too soft for me . . . But my back appreciates a firm bed - hard to find in most lower-end hotels like this one. It's my impression that the Carlson chain has the same soft beds in all its hotels.

We stayed here because it's the most convenient hotel to the home of the relative we're visiting & the rate for a suite for a week over the Christmas holiday 2013 was good.

The lighting in this suite is pretty helpless. Almost not enough light to sit & knit in the sitting room -- the only window is in the bedroom part of the suite. Low counter in the bathroom. Tub with shower . . . Does anyone really take a bath in a hotel bathroom anymore? Tiny fridge & tiny microwave & tiny sink & coffee maker in the 'sorta' kitchenette area.

Will prolly stay here again if visiting this relative, but mostly because the location is what it needs to be for us & there are no glaring reasons not to.

Room Tip: You can ask for a room on the quiet side -- away from the freeway, but we never heard freeway noise...

We stopped on our way to visit family on Christmas. Everything was clean, comfortable and we even got a call from the front desk making sure everything was okay. It had two pools - one being handicapped accessible which I thought was cool. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!
