Reviewed June 5, 2012

Nice quiet hotel, friendly staff, convenient location to highway. This is my first stay in a Country Inn and Suites. Room was nice size and clean. Free breakfast was nice even had hot food unlike most hotels that offer only cereal or breads. I would stay here again and would bring my family if we come back. Mall of America and airport are only 20 min drive from hotel.

I stayed here just overnight because I was in Minnesota to catch a Twins game. I was very impressed at how clean and large the room was. I got a room with only a king sized bed, but the room was really big and had a sitting area with what I can only assume is a sleeper sofa.

The hotel is a little out of the way from the twin cities, but if you're not from around there, just following the GPS or map will keep the half hour drive from being boring and feeling like it takes forever.

I can't say enough good things about the staff of the hotel. They were friendly and courteous, and very helpful. My only problem was that they ran my credit card through for the room instead of just incidentals, but the night auditor caught that and refunded the charge immediately before I checked out at 8:30 that morning! If I am ever back that way again, I will definitely stay here!

We have stayed at many Country Inn and Suites. We know what to expect and have found them to be similar and nice. This country inn has taken number one spot. The staff were fantastic, friendly , helpful. The room was nice, large and comfortable. These are all things we have come to expect from a countryinn and Suites. A couple things made this one stand out. The first and foremost was the Swimming Pool!! This is the warmest pool I have ever been in! So awesome! The work out room was spacious and it had a good variety of equipment. This is going to be our number one hotel for visits in the Minneapolis-St.Paul area!

Room Tip: We got a third floor room. I think they are quieter for the pitter patter of little feet!

We were so pleased with the location, friendly and helpful staff, and amenities - pool, breakfast, location near all our needs, etc. The room was clean, met our needs for light, comfort, and what you may not have thought was important, but provided, made your stay comfortable. Our Minnesota friends were impressed and will recommend to family and friends future visits. We will be back next year for gathering of friends and family.

Room Tip: Room 3rd floor north side were excellent. Mattress was too soft for me, however, I had a pleasant sl...

Great location if you are staying in the Cottage Grove area.

Room was clean, but carpets look like they could be deep cleaned. The couch was supposed to be a pull out, but didn't.

The woman at the front desk is not friendly and can be rather abrasisve with answering questions.

Great breakfast selection.

Room Tip: Find out what side of the hotel you are on and use one of the side entrances.

We stayed at the Country Inn & Suites recently in one of the whirlpool suites. The bed was a good size and not terrible for comfort, an average hotel bed. The whirlpool was OK but was just a glorified tub more than anything else. The room had a lot of space but a lot of it was empty...overall the room itself was just eh, not bad. For the money it was a tad overpriced and a little dated. Service was good though, we had an issue with a package deal we ordered through the hotel and they remedied the situation right away.

The breakfast was decent, the waffles were good as always but the fruit selection was terribly lacking. We had breakfast around 8:50 (ended at 10:30) and a majority of the good stuff was picked over. They still had a variety of items though so we got along just fine. Don't want to sound picky but for the price and what the hotel COULD be it was a little disappointing. The stay went just fine with no issues but they could do just a couple more things to really make it a great experience for future guests.

If you are looking for a quiet,comfortable hotel that is sparkling clean, serves a wonderful breakfast (free!), and has an awesome staff...this is it. This is the second time in two years that we have stayed in this hotel and we usually do not write reviews. However, we were so impressed with the service at this hotel that we were compelled to share. The pool was great for our kids...although the cookies at the front desk may have ranked a close second. You will actually be able to sleep here!!! The rooms are quiet and the bedding is soooo comfy. Thanks and keep up the great work!!!!
