Its hard to pick a hotel online but this one is THE ONE!! We found no negatives and actually were happy to know we will always have a favorite to return. Son was on college visit to ISU and staff was so helpful for that and everything we needed. He made his decision and will be back for 4 years!!... More

I am a Club Carlson member and appreciate being able to earn points for stays and then being able to use those points for discounted rooms. Country Inns have never disappointed me. They are cleanly,serve a good breakfast and have very personable staff.
