This hotel was a good stay. The decor was a bit older looking but was very clean and the people were very nice. The pool was great. The breakfast was well stocked and exactly what I expected. VERY good value for the dollar.

The stay is short but nice. I enjoy the environment and the cozy room which is suitable for a family trip to field. if you want to stay quietly, you better choose Country Inn which allows you have a country like and enjoy the fresh air in the countrysite.

I have stayed here before and came back again because I have been very satisfied. The breakfasts are more than the standard Continental serving eggs, fresh fruit and great coffee choices. The pool was a great temperature to get in to and for swimming laps, although the laps were short! I am comfortable here. The employees are very nice and... More

The woman who checked us in was dirty - greasy hair, dirty nails and in a wrinkled shirt way too big for her. Very unprofessional. Additionally, the breakfast room trash was overflowing and smelled bad. There was no staff around - including at the front desk - to report this to, so we left and went somewhere else for breakfast.... More

My husband and I came to Alexandria to bike on the Central Lakes Trail, so we weren't looking for a fancy room just a clean place to shower and sleep. The place is clean and the staff was great, but the facility really needs a makeover. Locks on the entries were broken. Whirlpool was cold. The computer in the lobby... More

I apologize for the condition of our bathrooms. I realize that they do need work and we are under renovation, with this said, we will be repainting the bathrooms as occupancy allows. We are also adding new lighting all through the building, I do have this in the process. We will also be giving the hallways a face lift too.... More

We stayed at this location while in town for a wedding. Very brief stay and I was a little worried about prior reviews. Our room was very nice and was one just recently renovated. There were a few issues with paint touch up needed but nothing that is a huge default. Bed was super comfy and room was very clean.... More

The Country Inn and Suites is just tired feeling. There are water stains on the ceilings in the halls and bathrooms, the towel bars are barely hanging on and the bedspreads are old school floral nylon. While the breakfast was good, the staff was busily unloading boxes and being inattentive to the guests. The front desk help was outside smoking... More

We will always patronize Carlson's Country Inn & Suites after the last few experiences. The first time to this location. This property must have just been renovated; everything spotless and like new. the breakfast -- continental included scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, fruit, coffee and juice.
