We realized after we checked in that this hotel was not pet friendly like their chain. We notified the front desk immediately to be honest. They not only charged us for the room and a $150 cleaning fee penalty for keeping a dog but kicked us out and called the police! We had our 2 small children and thought letting... More

Very nice clean property! The front desk was super helpful. Excellent breakfast choices in the morning. The room was very clean (no dust behind the nightstand), the bed was comfy. Looks like a nice pool but I didn't use. There is no on site fitness room but the front desk offered a local fitness facility to work out with using... More

The pool, breakfast and large rooms are all a plus. The blowers for the heat are fairly quiet. Best of all, the hotel is located on a lovely bike/walking trail that goes into town by foot in about 30 minutes, making this a great choice for walkers/runners/ bikers. The steakhouse accross the street is good, too. One of the better... More

Worst internet speed I have found in a hotel in a very long time. Best speen 1.22Mbps downloand and .22 Mbps upload. Took 15 minutes to send a small Excel file. Netflix took forever to start and then timed out. Big TV but poor picture quality. Service is non-existent - just give you the key and offered no other information... More

Todd, we are so sorry that you did not have a good experience with our internet. We have purchased the highest bandwidth available from our local provider in an effort to provide our guests with the fastest speed. I did review our static reports for that evening and due to the fact that the hotel was fully occupied, you may... More

2 nights in mid August. Indoor pool and hot tub were a highlight of the facility as well as the many offerings at their morning breakfasts. I couldn’t stay away from the free coffee and chocolate chip cookies at the front desk. They are starting to undergo a remodel in late 2013 which will take out the local ornamentation that... More

Hotel is very clean, staff are very friendly. Nice pool and hot tub. Cable for TV was flaky and had to fool around with it to get it to work. Could hear people walking above us. When the next door neighbor and the one above took a shower (at 5:00 am) the water pipes whistled and it was very loud.... More

My son's family and 2 grandsons and I all stayed recently at the Country Inn in Decorah. What a clean, comfortable choice! We enjoyed the pool as well as the generous breakfast, and found having a small refrigerator and microwave to be very convenient as well. Very convenient to the new trail around town, also. What most impressed me was... More

Friendly hotel staff. Complimentary cookies at check in (and they allowed us an early check in). Good selection of breakfast items (biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, muffins, toast, cereal, fresh fruit, and more. We had some loud people next door and the front desk attendant came down immediately and took care of it. I would stay here again.

This hotel is a great place to rest your feet after you've spent an afternoon and/or evening watching the famous Decorah Eagles and walking along the fabulous trail system they have here. The town is very clean with a vibrant downtown. The Sunday breakfast was tasty. We had scrambled eggs, biscuit w/sausage gravy. There is toast, bagels, fresh fruit and... More

We love to stay at the Country Inn and Suites no matter where we go. This was our first time staying at the Country Inn in Decorah. The free breakfast the next morning was very good. Our room was large, cozy and comfortable. Check-in was very smooth. Loved it!
