I stay at a lot of Country Inn's and have stayed at this one a few times. It just seems like this one just can't keep up with upgrading. I don't need it to be a 4 star hotel, but I should feel comfortable in it. Even some of the rooms that are upgraded have carpet that isn't and has... More

Great place if you want to be close to all the fun this area has to offer or stay to do business with 1 of the Multi-National companies based or having operations near the hotel. There is also grat food shopping and historcal sights near

Booked this hotel using points the day before, as we were travelling cross from Wisconsin to North Dakota. Very convenient, seconds off the interstate. We were only there less than 12 hours but got to enjoy the pool / hot tub before going to bed, and breakfast the next day.

I do not recommend this hotel unless it is completely remodeled. Many things falling apart, walls peeling and disgusting. Carpet had stains in hallway and rooms. Breakfast not the best with limited selection. Children of employees running around.

Property has not been updated. Rooms are small, furnishings are outdated. Wouldn't stay here again as many other hotels nearby. Adjacent parking lot is dirt! Very dusty! This property needs to be leveled and rebuilt!

There was food left in the fridge, The TV didn't work.. We didn't know how clean our room was after we saw the fridge and our room stunk from it so we asked for extra blankets so we could sleep on top of the beds.

Location is right off Alexandria exit. Initially room seemed clean until I lifted bedspread to reveal socks on floor and a box spring with stains on the side; a lone Dorito hid under the desk. The window opened but the screen was bowed out so there were a few bugs in the room. Bathroom sink drained very slowly and toilet... More

This was a disappointing stay - room poorly maintained, room keys didn't always work, and forget the complementary breakfast - unless you like powdered eggs cooked in foil, sausage that is saturated with grease. If you have a cold, bring you own tissues - these are harsh enough to scale fish. But then this was Minnesota, so maybe the harsh... More

This is always my first choice when staying in the area because the service and cleanliness is wonderful. The complimentary breakfast is awesome as well as the free wifi. If you sign up to be a rewards member you get all kinds of deals too.
