We incurred extra charges at check in that we were not told about when we reserved the room. The room was small and cramped. And when we asked for a slightly later check out time the staff was rude and unhelpful. They said they couldn't because of the holiday weekend when there were only 4 cars in the parking lot. I would recommend staying away from this hotel. Not a good value for the price.

Horrible manager, he was so rude to us. Booked onlne with tingo and paid $86.66 for two people,he made fun of us for paying so when we could of had it for $64. Paid $15 dollars extra a night for extra person. Higher than anyone else. Beds hard, dirty hallway, only got 2 sets of towels. He complained about us using too many towels, water and eating the complimentary breakfast. We did not eat breakfast not much there. Don;t recommend any one to stay at this hotel. Worst experince I have ever had. Ice machine didn;t even work.

Room Tip: I would choose none!

The beds were terribly uncomfortable! The pricing seemed inflated, but it is the only hotel in town. It seemed clean, but is need of a facelift including new beds and bedding!

My associate and I were visiting in Berlin Wisconsin and decided to stay at the Countryside Lodge. A small very clean hotel.

No it doesn't have the flat screens and a suite but for approximately $80, it is a very good value with continental breakfast. It has a nice work-out area, weight machine, treadmill, bike, stair climber better than some of the Hampton's, Doubletree, Choice hotels etc.at which i stayed.

The sink is in the room itself with toliet and bathtub/shower combo in separate small room.

It has FREE wireless which I find with some name brand hotels in cities is only Free if you are a Silver or above member otherwise at least $9/day.

The hotel is conveniently located to many small stores and restaurant/bars. Supermarket is on the west of the hotel and family style restaurant south hotel. Downtown with other eating options is about a 5-1o minute walk. Note: we were there Monday night so some of these places were not open. We asked the owner where maybe a good place to eat and get a drink and he suggested downtown versus the closer places.

Room Tip: I am not picky so any room if clean is good for me. I was on second floor and did not see an elevat...

We stayed the night at the Countryside Lodge Magnuson Hotel on Sept.25th 2010. The place was clean and the people where very nice, and easy to deal with. The hotel is quiet and the breakfast was good. The only thing I would say is a down fall for me was the bed was very hard. I do not consider this a bd thing just something I am not use to. Check -in and check-out went smooth and we as a group were very happy with our stay. The price was very reasonable also. I would stay again if I were going through Berlin again. Lots of easy to get to places near hotel, food, gas, Dollar General, and a food store, within walking distance of hotel. A nice place to stop and stay awhile. Countryside Lodge Magnuson Hotel get a thumbs up from rating form this group of 6. Thanks and maybe we will stay again next year at this same time.
