We were in town for a funeral. After a 15 hour drive, we arrived at 5 a.m. Other hotels in the area were going to charge us full price to check in at 5 am, so basically we would have had to pay for 2 full days. Country Inn allowed us to book for that night, then simply charge us... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times. It's okay, but could be much better. Things were just average or a little below. I was in room 128. There were large cracks in the basin in the bathroom. It really made the whole room seem shabby. The air conditioner was either on or off. When on, it ran constantly and... More

We stayed two nights in a small suite here, using points to cut the cost down to about $85 a night including lugs. The reservationist at the 800-number never emailed a confirmation, despite two calls from me. The hotel is near I-29 and restaurants, and is attractive inside and out. The clerk checking us in apparently was still learning and... More

We were in town for just 1 night for a wedding. Check in gal was friendly. Room was nice, with a mini fridge. There was an odd smell in the room. Did not try the breakfast because we checked out very early.

Exactly what you would expect. We stayed here last second and staff was friendly and accommodating. Room was clean. Walls a little thin with beds and towels consistent with a 2-3 star hotel. That's not a knock on the property. It's just what they are and they don't pretend to be more. Which is fine.

The hotel staff was great. The happy hour had good food and the drinks were cold. The only ptoblem was the hot tub jets not working and the exhaust fan in the bathroom was loud. THE Breakfast food was ok.

This is either a new or recently renovated hotel situated just off the exit from the highway, SD. In fact, it is in the first sizable town for well over one hundred miles south of Fargo ND. To the weary traveler it offers a clean, comfortable room and courteous desk staff. Paul, the attendant at the breakfast bar makes the... More

My husband stayed at the Watertown, SD Country Inn for one night on July 21. Our troubles started when I tried to book online and read a notice indicating that one must call the hotel directly to confirm that a pet room was available before booking online. My husband called the hotel, who could not verify whether or not a... More
