Usually stay here while visiting the CNH Manufacturing plant in Benson MN. The stay is always comfortable, and priced right. Hotel can be a bit noisy on one side, but quiet on the other. One end can smell smoky as it is above the smoking area of the attached restaurant and bar. The breakfast is quite substantial, and is adequate... More

Our business tried to work with this hotel to book an extended stay. The manager not only referred to our boss as "cheap" for asking for the corporate rate but ended up hanging up on us after we expressed concern about a previous visit we had made. They do not staff their front desk and when we had an issue... More

We have stayed here quite a bit due to family living in the area. Normally it is a good place to stay, but our last visit was less than friendly. The day-staff is decent. However, the night manager (new to the job?) was not welcoming or friendly. Several issues occurred that were red flags: We had to go get her... More

A HUGE thank you to Kay at the front desk for going above and beyond to accommodate me when I was stranded in thick fog and freezing temperatures. If not for her dedication to great customer service, I don't know where I would have stayed warm that night.

After reading previous reviews, we selected the Benson Country Inn for a one night stay, as we had business the next day in town. The hotel staff was great, even offering cookies when we checked in. Our room was clean and spacious and close to where we needed to be. A big surprise was McKinney's Bar/restaurant attached to the hotel.... More

If you have to go a little out of your way to stay here instead of other hotels within about an hour radius, DO IT! This hotel is by far the best I've stayed in within that area. I've been In The area for work for the last month and must say the nice front desk staff and awesome bar/grill... More

This is the nicest hotel in the area. Always very clean and always updating the look of the hotel. Staff are always very friendly and helpful. The staff goes out of their way to help with any business needs.

We had a lovely stay at The Country Inn in Benson, MN! Clean environment, friendly staff, excellent service, nice continental breakfast and attached bar with friendly management and staff. If you're looking for a quiet place to relax this is the hotel for you! The hot tub was nice and hot ( not lukewarm like most hot tubs), and the... More

This is the best motel in town and I've stayed her 5+ times with no major issues. The rooms are spotless and the west half of the motel sets on a residential street while the front end is set back far enough off US 12 to not be a major issue. If you're a light sleeper request the west side.... More
