Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Brooklyn Center

Reviewed March 17, 2014

We checked in late in the evening and had a very pleasant welcome. We were given a room off the highway, as we had requested. Teh room was one of the most quiet rooms we have had in many years. The breakfast lady did a great job keeping things cleaned and stocked. We will be back.

Clean, reasonably priced and staff is nice. Complimentary breakfast and small workout room. Good value for the money. Close to lots of restaurants. Had a conference at the Marriott down the road and it is only 10 minutes away

If you have business in the NorthWest corner of Minneapolis, this is a property worth considering. Its an older looking property but well maintained and most importantly, everything works as promised. The welcome cookie is a nice touch at the reception counter, internet connectivity worked well, breakfast was nothing fancy but adequate. The best part, in my opinion, was the bed - it was very comfortable and after a long overnight flight, it really helped me sleep well.

Overall, excellent value for the money.

We stayed here for 6 nights over labor day weekend while we helped our son move. It was a little further from Minneapolis than we normally stay, but they had a great rate and were dog friendly, so we decided to give Brooklyn center a try. it was a good decision because the traffic in and out of the city wasn't bad, and it was actually pretty quick getting from our son's apartment in Longfellow back to the hotel.

The weather was in the 90's most of the time, and our room's A/C worked quietly and well, which was a tall order with that kind of heat. We had a king suite which, along with the bedroom, had a dorm sized mini fridge and a microwave in the sitting room with sofa and comfy chair and work table.

It was all great, with one exception- - the shower spray was sooo into saving water that it was hard to rinse shampoo out of my chin length hair. (This problem I fixed myself with a rubber jar opener grippy thingy to twist off the shower head, then a paper clip to pull out the water saver - usually the closest little thing to the shower holes). It's a common problem in hotels, that I come prepared for. I just wish they would use a water-saving head that had some power behind it, instead of the cheapest ones they can buy. I have one friend that travels with a small shower head he just replaces in the hotel while he's there.

Breakfast was hot and varied every day, although eggs, biscuits, muffins, oatmeal, fresh cut up melons and fruit, yogurt and other things were standard every day. the breakfast attendant was happy and friendly, and didn't stop helping you (or remove the food) the second breakfast was supposed to be over.
and the best part of the stay.... Warm fresh baked cookies ALL day and most of the night, right there on the desk in a little serving container. The flavors varied from chocolate chip to peanut butter to macadamia nut to snickerdoodles - yummmm all the way.

The people at the desk couldn't have been nicer. they even jumped my car when my battery died!
Stay here! you will like it!

Stayed here for a soccer tournament, clean, friendly staff, who went the extra mile, went out shopping when breakfast items were low in hotel instead of saying they were out of the item! Fresh cookies and coffee 24/7 also on hand, would stay here again!

Was here on business and have had good success with Country Inns so gave this a shot. This is no exception. First the value was great and the personnel were helpful. The building is one of their older ones in appearance but they take care of it. Some renovations could be in order. Breakfast was adequate and extensive for a hotel breakfast. Highly recommend this hotel.

Carlson hotels does a wonderful job of appreciating members. As a Silver member I was greeted by name, welcomed with a goody bag and upgraded to a suite.

The spacious Suite has 2 separate rooms: A living room(with pullout couch) and a bedroom. 2 CRT TVs. A microwave and fridge. Hotel is not classy. Rather it is family oriented, safe, clean and quiet. Lots of nice perks: Free breakfast, nice pool and hot tub, lots of Free parking, Free cookies, fruit and coffee and always Free Wi-Fi.

The problematic night club mentioned in older reviews is closed. Also, this Country Inn is located is a safe part of town. Will be back.

Room Tip: Opt for the Suites, as the hallways tend to get noisy. Also, very poor noise insulation at this hote...
