“Quick Overnight Stay with No Problems”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

After leaving our previous destination a day early; I found this hotel at 7PM and checkin 2 hours later. The hotel is located on the west edge of town and was easy to find, It's close to the mall and the highway. Check-in was quick and easy with no problems. There was plenty of parking in a lighted parking lot as well. The pool area was "out of order" when we arrived, which for us wasn't a problem we weren't going swimming, but the front desk did not mention this when we checked in. The hotel is fairly new and the room looked brand new still; and clean. It had a nice big desk and dresser. The beds were comfortable and everyone had a good nights rest. They have continental breakfast as well with hot eggs, sausage, and french toast. They also had make your own waffles and the muffins, toast and cereal bar as well. It was a very good selection. No problems with this hotel and would stay again.

I was out in the Minot area overnight on business. I found the Country Inn and Suites to be very reasonably priced. It was a very enjoyable stay. I found the room to be much larger than I expected. Very clean and quiet. I slept great. It's not quite as convenient a location if you're interested in going to the mall and you definitely have to drive rather than walk to get to restaurants or any shopping. For a business trip it's a great choice with excellent access off of Hwy 2/52.

Was woken up by the fire alarms in the morning from the supposed continental breakfast prep. Got up to go eat the free continental breakfast to find bothering but cereal, toast, and make your own waffles. No eggs were restocked at all even hard boiled where you can usually scavage at 1 of those, and the lady in charge of the breakfast had no intentions of restocking. Poor service for an unexpected wake up call and the price I paid for a nights stay.

Our guests safely is our number one concern but we also want to make sure that they have enjoyed their stay as well. We want to thank you for your feedback and want you to know we have provided it the hotel management so the areas where we have failed can be inproved upon.

We stayed two nights over the weekend. Being a new hotel, it waswvery clean and homey. Check - in was easy and the front desk was very friendly. Our room was on the third floor had two double beds that were comfortable. Room and hotel were very quiet. Room was extremely clean with a fridge, microwave, desk and chair. TV was high def. Bathroom was spacious, althought we ran out of hot water the first morning. The other thing wrong in the bathroom was no hook to hang clothes or towels.

Breakfast was excellent with hot food. I had sausage and scrambled eggs and american potatoes with a full condiment bar. Five choices of cereal, oatmeal, waffles, juices, severval types of breads and four juice types. The only thing missing was bananas, Staff was friendly but not too obtrusive and plenty of seating.

We did not use the pool and there were only three machines in the small exercise room.

Checkout went well without incedent. We are glad we stayed

Room was very clean. Hotel has a warm homey feel. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was ok. We were late so most of the hot food was gone. It was very close to the mall and across from the where the new Kohls is going to be.

The lobby is very inviting. Friendly service at check in. Suite rooms are very nice, but the walls are thin. Breakfast was not very good. The fruit salad looked to be at least a week old.
This is a great location for shopping. Just down the street from the Dakota mall. Very easy to get to and get to other places around Minot.

The hotel still smells new, very clean. staff with the exception of two people were very friendly. Did not like the feeling at breakfast by a staff member that we were annoying being there. He did not smile, which in turn we felt he was unfriendly. same situation w/ a female who was overseeing house keeping as we did laundry walking back & forth she would just glare/ no smile. Those two individuals I sadly will remember as being the worst part of my experience & enough for me to thing twice when selecting a hotel. The room was clean & new, my kids did like that. They also liked the ammentities but not the look they got when taking a cookie that was there for guests. People need to remember to smile & not glare because your staff can make or break the success to your business.
