“Great option in Grand Forks”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

I stayed here with two friends (in our 30's) for one night. They let us park our car for the week, while we vacationed in Las Vegas. Vehicle was safely there when we arrived back. Transport to and from the airport was perfect. Rooms were lovely. Clean and updated. Paid $121.50USD for the night. Free wifi in the room. Pool area is nice. Two hot tubs and a cute play sprinkler thing kids. Temperature of pool is perfect...lukewarm. Breakfast was awsome. Cereal, coffee, juice, waffles, you name it! Front entry area has a nice sitting area with a fireplace. Staff at the desk were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again, although there are cheaper options in the area.

My mother and I stayed here for a short shopping trip and it was a great stay! We had no complaints other than the beds were poorly made once the cleaners were finished with our room. It looked like they had just pulled the covers up and smoothed them out instead of fully making the bed. That would be the only complaint we had everything else was great! The breakfast was truly a deluxe continental and we were full when we left to shop! We would definitely stay here again!

We were so happy with our stay! Service did not get full stars because we did not have to ask or get anything. Clean spacious room & flatscreen tv. Beds really comfortable. We were here when not very busy so dont know on noise level. We will stay here every time we come through. This is the BEST country Inn I have stayed at. (We never use pools cant comment on that) Fabulous room for money!

We've stayed here before so knew what to expect. A little rough start to check in, as the room assigned to us was all ready occupied. Got everything straighten out moved on to different room. The room is big and separated bedroom from living area is always nice.
The pool area is kid friendly. The hot tubs were okay as one was not working properly, on the cool side, the other one was full of kids and really no room for adults. I did mention to the front desk about the hot tub on Friday but it was still the same condition on Saturday and full of kids.
The breakfast area is one of the best in Grand Forks with different items everyday. The coffee is good and tastes like coffee and free paper.
Great location, close to shopping.
But it is time to move to a different hotel with less kids.

Over the past 4 years we have repeatedly stayed at this hotel and found it to be of good value up until our last visit. During our recent stay we found that the hotel is beginning to show significant signs of decline with the hotel in need of a major upgrade. Our room had a strange odor in it and at times that smell could be found throughout the hallways.(smelled like body odor masked with Pinesol) The fan-furnace in our room was very loud and we had to turn it off at night. The carpet and bedspread appeared tired and in need of replacement. Some staff made me feel uncomfortable to leave my children unattended, with one tattoo covered male repeatedly offering my daughter items obviously found around the pool. (he reminded me of a guy I once saw on Cops). The shower is horrible with the water pressure so weak that rinsing off soap or shampoo is a challenge. Food stains could be on the lobby walls and it looked like the lobby had not been cleaned in several days. I will say that the breakfast is good and location ideal, but now that my children have outgrown the Polar bear water slide we will not be returning.

We stayed this past weekend. We stayed in a two room family suite with twin beds that my kids said were very comfortable. They loved not having to share a bed. More hotels should offer rooms with bunks or twins. Big plus. I very much appreciated their cancellation policy. I had until 6pm the day of arrival to cancel if I had to. This is great for ND winters and last minute changes in plans. Makes me feel safe booking here compared to the CanadInn which has a 48 hour prior to arrival cancellation policy. Lots can change in 48 hours. Next, the pool area was spacious and clean. It opens at 6am which is perfect for us. No waiting around til 8 or 9am. The mini game room off the pool area was cute and fun and the location was perfect. The game room was not near any guestrooms so no screaming or doors slamming all the time while you are trying to sleep. Smart planning on the hotels part in that regard. The breakfast was outstanding and the attendant was really on top of things. So many food choices, both hot and cold, fresh fruit pieces, yogurts, cereals, waffles, eggs and ham, make your own burritoes, etc. 10 out of 10 for the breakfast. So for a family, this hotel has a lot of hidden gems that make your stay worthwhile. Located near several restaurants and close to shopping of all kids. Just down the road from the Alerus event center too.
