I stayed here one night on a business trip and it was not my first time there. I always choose this hotel because I've never been disappointed with the staff, the rooms, the pool and the hot tub. The breakfast room is also very good. Check-in was fast and easy and the room smelled fresh and clean. The location is... More

After staying at this hotel, I have learned to pay a little more for a hotel that has at least a 4 star review. First thing we noticed right off the bat was that the hotel staff was not friendly or welcoming at all, just did what they needed to in order to check us in and out. No smiles... More

Although my stay was OK this hotel is very dated. The rooms still have old brass rail headboards and a archaic tube TV with no sleep timer..I had no pen or paper in the room and had to keep getting my room cards reprogrammed each day..The outside grounds need some clean up and repairs, the fence around the garbage is...

We stay at Country Inn &Suites as our first choice. This one is very nice. Only issue was that we had the two room suite. There is no ventilation between the rooms so we had to have the heat up too much to heat the second room and keep the door open. Other than gnat it was very nice

we got a two room suite (Room 200). The non bedroom consisted of a pull-out sofa which was absolutely impossible to sit on because it sloped to the middle so bad. Also had cigarette burn in a no-smoking room. There was also a small table and two chairs. Basically, a waste of the room (and waste of money). The place... More

Overall a satisfactory stay. The breakfast was good! Staff was friendly and helpful, but the WiFi only worked for me in the lobby and down the hallway. As soon as I closed the door to the room, the signal was gone.

Stayed here during a work trip to Detroit Lakes area. The hotel is easy to find, and a great supper club, the Fireside is about 1/2 mile from the hotel. Rooms are simple and clean. Mini fridge and microwave in my room. My room faced the front of the hotel, and there is a train track nearby, but seriously, I... More

We always stay here when we're in the area visiting family, because they accept small dogs. This year we noticed that the place is in need of cleaning and some upgrading. The wallpaper in the bathroom was coming down in spots, the carpet was dirty, there were weeds all over the landscaping rocks, the plumbing was slow! We had to... More

This hotel was the 1st night of an 8 night roadtrip in MN/SD/ND. It was very reasonably priced and had a great free breakfast that was fully stocked. The room had a mini-fridge and was a pretty good size. The staff was very polite and the hotel is a short walk to the lake. It is located a block from... More

I stay here every time I come to town which is about 15 times a year and I have never had a single complaint. The staff is awesome, the location is convenient. The staff always gives you a good price right at the desk.
