My girlfriends and I stayed there for a night to attend a bachelorette party at the Spicer Castle about an hour away and a bridal shower in town the next day. The hotel staff was polite and courteous. We had a king suite which was plenty big enough for all of us and then some. The carpet was sticky in... More

This was probably one of the nicest, friendliest little local hotels I have ever stayed at. From the initial bookings to my contact with Jessica when I had questions, everything about this hotel was awesome. The rooms were very nice, the staff were friendly and the breakfast was great! I need to give a shout out to Jessica though, she... More

A perfect stay at a great hotel. Was told the property was due for an upgrade in the next year or so- it will then be more than perfect! We felt so welcome and the entire staff really showed their hospitality skills. The room was clean, quiet and inviting. The pool was uncrowded and connected to an outdoor patio area... More

Average hotel with no elevator to the second floor. Breakfast included but below average no eggs on some days and take out coffee cups located at the front door and not in the breakfast area. Clean rooms and servicing of the room during the stay was acceptable.

Very nice and well-kept facility. Just walking in the front door you know this is a good place, with its spacious and comfy lobby. The staff was very friendly and helpful--both the night shift and morning shift. Everything about the room was a plus, from comfy beds to nice furniture, TV, and bathroom. The breakfast buffet was hands down, the... More

I stayed here for one night and was pleasantly surprised. The front desk staff were very friendly and welcoming. There were even cookies on the counter! The rooms were spacious and clean. The checkout is at noon which gives you plenty of time to enjoy the free breakfast! A great value for the money. Sometimes in hotels you get unexpected... More

As usual, this Country Inn by Carlson is a very nice property. We've stayed in many over the years. Nice lobby, friendly staff, clean, well-kept rooms. However, this time the mattress needs to be changed out for a new one. A very lumpy night's sleep on that old mattress. Stayed over a Friday night not noticing there was a train... More

Thank you for taking the time to response on Trip Advisor. Occasionally we get a complaint about the trains and unfortunately that is out of our control but we do have free ear plugs available. I would love to know which room you were in so I can look at the mattress and address the issue immediately. Again thank you... More

We had a 13 day rental for a wheelchair using friend. The front desk personnel were consistently pleasant and were most accomodating. The housekeeping people were on top of all matters and went out of their way on numerous occasions to make the stay a great experience. We had a number of special requests. I will remember my stay by... More

We stayed here for two nights in July. It was very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We loved the pool and hot tub. Country Inn is always a reliable place to stay in our experience.
