We were in town for a wedding and this was one of the hotels suggested. We were first offered a room on the second floor after being told there was nothing available on the first floor. When we entered the room it smelled extremely musty and was hot. We figured if we turned on the air it would help but... More

The hotel was clean, comfortable, and convenient for both campuses but nothing special. It's just across the river from the center of town and only a five minute walk to some great food and coffee shops. I hope this helps!!

Stopped to visit a couple of colleges in the area. As advertised: clean, conveniently located near downtown Northfield and Carleton and St. Olaf colleges. Minneapolis is a half-hour away, Northfield has its own Midwestern charm. Would stay there again.

We booked this room on-line and the suites were listed as 1 bedroom suites. When we checked in, the process was quick and Samantha did a good job. She had us on 2nd floor and said they were sold out for the night or she would have moved us. Our room was one large open room, no separate bedroom. The... More

Thank you for reaching out and writing your review. We are sorry you were not satisfied with your accommodations. We do have rooms that have a door seperating the rooms so not sure why this wasn't a room you were given if that's what was reserved. I will also speak with my front desk staff about the concern with the... More

Close to either campus and downtown this is it unless you want to stay at the funky Archer House--not for us this trip because Grandma was along. It really is an ordinary place with pretty worn fixtures and creaky (in our room anyway) AC. The bathroom shape and door make it very awkward to close the door while inside. And... More

We broke up a trip to Minneapolis, with a stop at Country Inn in Northfield Minnesota. It is conveniently located just about 4 miles off of interstate 35. The pool was a great place for our grandkids to burn off a little energy before getting on the road again, and the hot tub was nice for the grown-ups. The room... More

Upon arrival I was greeted by Samantha who was at the front desk. She was awesome and check in was fast and efficient. My room was nice but I found the previous occupants door key on the bed. The remote control for the TV was broken and did not work. Also the walls in the room had several large Nick's... More
