Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Kenosha
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Kenosha
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 July 2014

If you've ever read my other reviews you know it's difficult to see 5 stars out of me, but this place would have gotten 10 if that was the system here.

The tl;dr--Everything's clean, well supplied, nice competent staff and awesome food for breakfast so just book your room already.

We booked our room here because it's quite close to the Bristol Renaissance Festival but we'll come back no matter what we're doing in Kenosha. The whole place was great--I actually have no complaints!

We were greeted by nice, professional desk staff and got a goodie bag with water and munchies and keys that worked perfectly. WiFi is free and works great--I didn't really notice any dead areas and the speed in our room was great. The bed was very comfortable and the correct size (you'd be surprised how many hotels tell you that you've booked Queen beds and you find beds smaller than full-size when you open the door). There were even extra pillows and blankets already in the room--didn't need them this trip but it points out the attention to detail this hotel's management brings to the job.

There's a complimentary breakfast and I wouldn't waste my money going elsewhere! Everything was fresh, correctly cooked, nice and hot and the selection was fantastic--including the make-your-own waffle station! My only wish was that I could have eaten more because everything was VERY GOOD (I don't know the cook's name but I saw her several times as she checked on supplies and replenished food)! There's a Cracker Barrel nearby, but even with my highly ridiculous dietary restrictions I had plenty to choose from.

Staff and amenities at this Country Inn and Suites made this purely for fun trip a lot more fun--we came in the night before the festival opened and having such a nice place to stay gave us a great start to a long, fun day. Don't bother looking elsewhere for a lower price--you get what you pay for and more here.

This is a typical Country Inn & Suites. Everything about it was average but, a decent place to stay when it's late at night. The room was clean but well used as did the rest of the property. Breakfast was good. The staff was professional. I would stay here again because of location and knowing what to expect.

I have stayed her in the past numerous times with my children (now adults) and grandchildren. My most recent stay was over the 4th July weekend with my fiancé so we could go to the Renaissance Fair. The place sits back off the highway so its easy to miss with all the construction going on so look for the Cracker Barrel sign. The front desk clerk Devin was very professional and informative. As a Club Carlson member we received a goodie bag with water & Cheetos which was nice. We asked for a room facing the front of the parking lot so I could keep an eye on my car and we ended up getting the room right in front of it! The pool & hot tub area looked recently remodeled and very nice, however we didn't use it. The room also a décor change from the last stay it was nice with black furnishings and seaside framed art. I thought this was a little odd as we were in Wisconsin, it was like mixing the Caribbean with the Country. The bed was super comfy but the pillows were short so you need about 6 for the queen bed but again no problem. The bed spread was green and the curtains the usual Country Inn & Suites gold and green plaid. The carpet was showing signs of buckling but was very clean. The bathroom was also very clean. Breakfast was included and was really nice. There was a waffle station, breads, donuts, yogurts, oatmeal & cold cereals. Fresh scrambled eggs, sausage and biscuits. Juices & coffee as well. This place is close to everything, Jelly Belly and nice grocery store and Marrs Cheese Castle is right down the street. Looking forward to next years stay.

Room Tip: They are all good!

The County Inn is outstanding. Folks behind the desk: very helpful & friendly. Housekeeping: thorough & professional. Frances in the Breakfast Room: always a friendly smile & greeting to start my day.

Room Tip: The far east or west rooms have less hallway noise.

Great customer service/front desk! Was travelling through WI and stopped here for a night, the front desk person was really friendly and asked floor preference. When I didn't have one, he suggested the first floor as it had been recently remodeled.

Breakfast was a very nice spread (always love the waffle maker!) with sausage and eggs as well as the traditional fare... was pleasantly surprised at this as we stayed on a Monday night and expected it to be more of a business/quick breakfast.

I stayed in this hotel 3 nights. The room was clean and spacious, the bathroom ok. Only things to complain about are the noise from the nearby interstate and the typical plastic waste you produce when you have breakfast. Frittatas, scrambled eggs, bagels... Enough variance was provided to have a good start in the day. Indoor Pool and Jacuzzi were alright as well.

Would stay again, no question. But next time I ask for a room to the opposite site of the interstate...
