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.

The evening desk person made me feel so welcome that I came back for more nights. The room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was super and 2 restaurants across the parking lot were good. When being on the road too much, the staff makes such a difference. Super nice!!

My sister and I stayed here to celebrate her 50th birthday. We were able to check in early which was nice. The first room we were given was a king whirlpool so we went back to the desk and switched to what we had originally requested - two queens. The room was spacious. We noticed upon arrival that the fridge... More

We apologize you were not satisfied with the condition of the hotel during your stay. The whirlpool was resurfaced and while you are correct the jets are disconnected until it sets and can be drilled. The spa is still being filtered and the chemicals are checked every 6 hours. I am very embarrassed about your concerns about my staff, breakfast... More

I was recently in town for a funeral; the majority of our family from out of town stayed at this hotel. The staff was very helpful and even sent a plant to the funeral. After the funeral much of the family came back to the hotel - there were 20-30 of us, and they allowed us to hang out in... More
