There are better hotels in Alexandria, don't stay here. I didn't reserve our room -- friends of ours did. I would never have reserved a room at a hotel that is so dated. Who has floral bed spreads anymore anyway?? I needed something from the front desk, so at 1 AM I called there. No one answered. So I went... More

In town on business and usually look for CIS hotels to stay in, this one is good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean but a little out dated. Bed was comfortable and provided a good restful sleep. Breakfast was great with many choices. Staff was great during check in and check out. TV remote would not work with... More

Decent hotel, a little pricey for what you get, but about the same for the region. Hotel was recently updated. Easy parking, large lot. Close to interstate but no dining within walking distance. Pool area very nice. Hot tub was not hot, but to be fair, it had recently been drained & cleaned and probably got hotter later.

Services were as good as expected. Good complimentary breakfast. We enjoyed the pool and whirlpool. The hotel was clean, though I was a little put off by the fact that the laundry room door was always open for the public to see. The room was so small that we couldn't walk around the second bed to get into it. The... More

I apologize for the curved shower curtains and the size of our beds, they are Carlson standards and we can not change that. We are in the process of ordering new boxsprings and mattresses. The fan in the bathroom, I will have my maintenance team look at. I am so sorry for any inconviencance this may have caused you during... More

This hotel is located just off of 94, so your outside of town a 15 minutes away from pretty much everything. Be careful when using Google maps to locate where this hotel is located it shows it on the other side of Alexandria outside of town. The hotel was clean. The staff was friendly. The decor was very dated. It... More

Travelling & stopped in Alexandria to spend the night. First few motels were full, and when Country Inn was contacted they had a few rooms and were very accommodating! Clean, friendly staff, nice pool & breakfast area.

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.
