The hotel Staff and manager were very pleasant and helpful. Always greeted guests. The continental breakfast was very nice and they replenished items. I would recommend this hotel and will stay there again.

Couldn't really say we were greeted upon check-in, the front desk agent never went over any amenities with us or told us about the hotel. When we walked into the room I literally busted out loud laughing -straight out of 1993. HUGE tube tv that was snowy when turned on, the bedspread was a 'lovely' floral pattern, the wallpaper, oh...

Individually owned franchise facility - you will be disappointed if you book EXPECTING the usual class and comfort of most Country Inn and Suites location. First time EVER staying in a Country Inn and Suites location that I felt I was staying at a generic style hotel -- in need of updating and renovations. Mildewy smelling room AC - no... More

This hotel is old and dirty and is falling apart. I don't think one repair or updating has been done since the place opened. Wallpaper was coming off everywhere, carpet was old, dirty and stained, and the furniture was old and stained and needed to be taken out and burned. I would I would definitely not recommend staying there.

Our extended family stayed in the Detroit Lakes Country Inn. Eighteen family members in 6 rooms. We all arrived at different times, and some of us needed specific rooms, although all the rooms were reserved under one name. Kami was at the front desk when the parents arrived, and helped us match up specific people with specific rooms. She was... More

We stayed here for 1 night while touring the Minnesota countryside. We had a king room on the first floor and had a good night sleep, and found the Country Inn to be quiet. The Breakfast buffet in the morning was the standard Country Inn variety which is always very good. The staff was pleasant; and we found it a... More

Stayed two nights in July, 2014 with Family. My impressions are as follows: Good:- - Pet friendly (a $ flat fee of $ 20 applies per stay) which is nice for people travelling with their four legged friends (or so) as we did. - Free hot breakfast and high speed internet - close to the waterfront and highway 10 Not...

I booked this hotel via Travelocity. I called the day before the reservation to see if we could check in early due to dressing for a funeral. I was told to call back the next morning. I did and when we arrived, not only did we get to check in early, we also got the funeral rate, 50% less than... More

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
