“Nice Property on North Edge of Red Wing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Two families stayed at the Country Inn Suites on the north edge of Red Wing, MN. We made this our home post while visiting the area. The indoor pool and whirlpool were relaxing, and not too crowded on the weekend we stayed there. The queen beds were comfy with plenty of pillows. Flatscreen TV was nice, but we didn't get the Hallmark channel as indicated in the notebook. Breakfast was plentiful: cold and hot cereal, eggs, sausage, fruit, waffles, milk, coffee, tea, juices, breads (muffins, bagels, bread). As always, we enjoy watching confused travelers when the waffle iron repeatedly beeps (expecting to be turned over); always brings a chuckle or two! Had one washer and one dryer on first floor; you can purchase laundry soap at the front desk. Exercise room had a weightlifting bench, 2 treadmills, a stationary bike and stairstepper. My room (on first floor) was noisy, however, when my upstairs neighbor took a shower at 5:30am--the water pipe was in the wall between my bed and bathroom. Was also noisy when my upstairs neighbor stomped across their floor--I could help but count 10 steps from window are to the bathroom, and then back again. But that seems to be the norm for hotels these days. If you want quiet, you need to be on the top floor away from the elevators and ice machines. Asked for directions to a popular tourist stop (Red Wing Shoe Museum), and was told by the front desk that she hadn't lived in Red Wing very long, and had never heard of the Museum. So much for asking any other questions about the area. But overall, the property was clean and well maintained. Only other concern was the fact that the Smokin' Oak restaurant shares the parking lot with the hotel, so during the dinner hour, you may not be able to park in the lot when you come "home" for the evening.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, reserve a room on the top floor, away from the ice machine and elevator. Overhea...

Short trip from Minneapolis to Red Wing for weekend getaway. Location and personnel were great, dining next door was excellent. Problem was with the room. The thermostat did not function properly and would not turn off at high or low temperature range. Ended up getting up during the night when temp reached 82 (set for 74). Front desk person came to investigate but could not figure out issue either.

Situated on the edge of town not easy to find unless you come in from the north. Good reception, nice rooms, great pool indoor and outdoor. Good reception, car to door for 1st floor rooms with small patio. Restaurant next door fast food, if you want more try Applebys half a mile north.. Breakfast a dissapointment but Perkins next door good for breakfast. A very good stay.

This property was an affordable, clean, and quiet place to stay just on the edge of town. The rooms were more than adequate for the price and very clean, as it is a newer propert. We stayed for the convenience of having the Smokin Oaks restaurant located conveniently in the parking lot.

Nice quiet place to stay.....the staff are very friendly and helpful....the room we had was nice and clean and comfortable...it was very quiet.......was a little bit away from things but that didn't matter to us because we only needed a quiet place to put our heads down and that was exactly what we got.....

This is a newer, quite motel located on the outskirts of Red Wing. We found it to be quiet, restful and the staff were quite accommodating. If you are looking for a good nights sleep with no hassle this is the place for you. The only drawback is its located a bit far from downtown, but maybe thats why its so quiet. Would stay here again, for sure.

We were looking for a hotel that had a bar and restaurant, but couldn't find one with availability. This property has the "Smokin' Oak" restaurant in the adjoining parking lot, so it worked out perfectly for us!
The hotel was clean, well kept, and the service desk was friendly and helpful!
The complimentary breakfast had great things to offer including breakfast potatoes, scrambled eggs, make your own waffle, to mention just a few.
We received a government discount, so it was very affordable! We had the king suite for the same rate as the double queen room that we also booked. The room was very spacious!
This hotel was a bit further north than the rest, but it was quiter that way too!
The pool and spa were clean and inviting.
A great find!
