We booked through Hotwire which rated this property as a 3 star. Although in 1998 it very well might have been, it certainly isn't now. Outdated, dirty and obviously lacking the TLC and investment to keep it current. Not at the standard of any of the previous Country Inn and Suites we've stayed at. Not sure where the other reviewers... More

My wife and I arrived here late on a Friday night, without a reservation. The attentive and congenial front desk person, Joel, couldn't find us a single king. But he quickly put us in a ground floor, easily accessible non-smoking double queen. The facility, in general, and our room, in particular, were very nice -- clean and well-kept. Our room... More

Everything here was outstanding breakfast pool beds cleanliness. Would have gave it 5 stars but always room for improvement. I never give 5 stars out. I would highly recommend staying again. The staff was super friendly all were eager to help us out and the night staff with our late night check in were very nice.

Pretty outdated hotel. Room decoration and furniture needs replacing. Chair had a gross liquid stain. TV was at least 15 years old. It didnt feel quite as comfy as some other chains. I was dissapointed. The front desk mgr was very nice. And no thermostat on the wall? Come on!

It was our 25th. Hot tub is room was nice. The king bed was new- very comfortable. Hotel did a great job keeping the rambunctious little people at the other end so; wall way traffic was kept to a min.

We stayed here during Hockey Day Minnesota! Nice large rooms and even the continental breakfast was excellent with eggs, sausage, breakfast potatoes, etc... Really impressed and definitely plan to stay again but next time it will be a girls trip to do some shopping at the outlets.

The breakfast was great. Not just rolls and waffles. They offered scrambled eggs, sausage and biscuts and gravy. We also really appreciated the large, clean pool and hot tub area. It was minus 10 degrees outside and the hot tub was a welcome oasis.

Enjoyed our stay here. Room was clean, midnight pool hours for adults were great, and breakfast was comprehensive (eggs, sausage, cereal, breads, etc.). I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Elk River.
