“Very nice”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We love to stay at the Country Inn and Suites no matter where we go. This was our first time staying at the Country Inn in Decorah. The free breakfast the next morning was very good. Our room was large, cozy and comfortable. Check-in was very smooth. Loved it!

We stopped at this place as a result of a e-mail offer from the chain. Place is nice & well maintain. Desk staff were nice and friendly. Suggested a number of places to eat and were very pleased with place we went (Mabe's Pizza). Breakfast in the morning was amazing as many times places cut back on the offerings on the weekends. Two drawback are there isn't a light by the chair in the corner of the room so I needed to go to the lobby to read the paper & the bed pillows are "sofa" sized. Took the pillows from the self which help some. We will come back to this place.

Room Tip: bring along your own pillow as pillows are super small - stay on the west end of the building as the...

I have stayed here when doing business with Luther College; more frequently my wife and I stay here when in the area for the Oneota Film Festival, Vesterheim, or other Decorah attractions. This time we stayed for two nights and had two rooms for a family reunion.

I find this CI&S to be hospitable; their receptionists have always been friendly and helpful. They never fail to have cookies waiting (unlike many other CI&S I have stayed at where cookies are promised but seldom available).

The pool area was very clean and nicely kept.

Room Tip: no elevator for 2nd floor

Went to Decorah, Ia to see our granddaughter who is a student at Luther College. She participated in the annual Christmas music performance (which is excellent).
We stayed at the Country Inn and was very impressed. It was wonderfully clean and well maintained. The room was large and well furnished. The desk staff was wonderful. Qualilty free WI-FI was a big plus. Continental breakfast was included.

We went to a Scandinavian Museum in the downtown area. We benefited from the annual weekend demonstrations, clothing, and music, etc. It was great.

" We have always been greated by polite and helpful staff that were very accomodating to our needs". Rooms are spacious and clean, updated mechanicals, and the staff is quick to help answer those questions about where to eat and what to do. The facility is well equipped with a nice pool area complete with a jetted hot tub, wireless internet, adequate machines for ice, snacks and soda. The breakfast that is included in the room rate is among the best we have seen. Eggs, sausage, home fries, waffles and the list goes on, don't forget the chocolate chip cookies at the desk, yummy. Our family reunions use this facility to house all the out of town families, usually 4 to 6 rooms is required, we are always well pleased with the service. Great service and a great value, this motel is always our choice!

Room Tip: We like the lower level rooms away from the entry and desk, seems more quiet and way less trafic.

I was in Decorah, IA for work and chose to stay at the Country Inn and would stay there again, but I did have a few issues when stayed there. The positives: the room was clean, modern, service was good and breakfast was good with many choices. The negatives: them room heater was very loud and woke me up two times when it kicked on over night, the breakfast was under stocked and the hotel was under staffed in morning to maintain the items on the breakfast buffet.
I can give them a pass on the breakfast as it looked like there was a lot of guests that were leaving the just before I got to breakfast. They were unprepared to replace many of the items they were serving. I was ok with what was served but some other guests were a littled peeved by having to wait a few minutes for each item to be brought out separtely.

I travel frequently and find myself in Decorah. The Country Inn & Suites is more like a second home to me. Anytime I need something out of the ordinary silverware for use in the room, documents faxed, printing, supplies for special presentations and meetings, the staff has always been so accomdating and helpful. I had asked a catalog be sent to foreign national here in the states for a brief period of time, so he and his family could choose different locations to stay at Carlson hotels, the staff at Decorah sent a catalog right out. I often find my self with lots of work to do in hotel stays but find it easier when in Decorah.

Room Tip: Always be courteous and thankful for the room you get.
