We were on a college visit to Northfield with our son and decided to stay at the Country Inn in town. We're glad we did. At every step of the way, the staff was helpful and flexible to our needs. We needed a late check-out so my husband could do a work-related presentation from our room after the official check-out... More

The hotel was conveniently located to downtown Northfield, as well as St Olaf college where we were visiting my friend's daughter. We were thoroughly impressed by Ryan at the front desk. When we checked and asked about a treadmill, he stated that they had none, but we could go to the beautiful YMCA in town and the hotel would reimburse... More

I was in town on business. I stayed for 11 nights. Cidney at the front desk was great. She was very hospitable and had great recommendations for food and beer in the area. I booked this hotel based on proximity to my client. I was very disappointed that there is no fitness center. Nothing at all. However, the spa and... More

I got caught by weather after seeing the St. Olaf Christmas Concert (recommend it!). I booked this hotel very easily, and it was the smartest move I made. The hotel was clean and very comfortable, the employees were all very friendly and knowledgeable, and I very much enjoyed my stay, especially since I hadn't planned to stay there and didn't... More

Right next to the train tracks, and frequent trains through the night blow the whistle long and loud as they approach, pass, and travel on. Very hard to sleep, even with ear plugs. Room was clean, room service quite good, if I'd been awake enough to enjoy amenities.

Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us. We understand how important a quiet environment is and apologize about the train that runs behind the hotel. For any future stays request a room on the opposite side of the tracks and most people don't realize it's even there. We hope you will give us another chance if... More

We stayed one night here when visiting friends in Northfield. The location is really good, a very short 2-3 minute walk from downtown. The beds were exceptional, the most comfy hotel beds I have slept in for a long time. The room was clean and comfortable. I did not get a chance to sample breakfast. There is a freight train...

The Country Inn and Suites is a great place to stay when visiting Carlton College. It is only a few blocks' walk from the campus, in easy reach of shops and businesses. The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable, and the pool is open 6-12, which means that even if you're attending a conference with long sessions, you can take... More
