“Top rating is well deserved”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

My wife and I stayed at Country Inn based on Trip Advisor reviews, and found them to be accurate. The inn is located just outside Walker and offers easy highway access, loads of parking and friendly, efficient check-in. The overall facility is very quiet and meticulously clean, with great beds and all the normal amenities. No, it isn't 5-star but it offers exceptional value. We are returning on family business in October and would happily stay there again.
The "lake view" rooms are just that, a view of Leech Lake some distance away, as the inn is not on the water. While breakfast offered a quite limited selection, it is uncrowded and the server Mary is a credit to any establishment. Those looking for a full breakfast should perhaps plan on a short drive to Walker just a few minutes away or inquire if it varies depending on the day of the week, as I didn't see many of the items mentioned in other reviews. One caveat: the Lucky Moose restaurant is next door, and our dinner there was not an experience we will repeat.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lake side are away from the highway and may be quieter, though we were not aware of any...

Rooms are clean and updated from the "old country inn stenciled look" to tans and moss greens- very comfortable & welcoming. Breakfast "Mary" how pleasant! She has a servers heart ❤ kept things hot and clean and ready to meet a need at any time. Great employee! I LOVED that there was fresh 1/2&1/2 in the frig! Please keep that! Awesome variety of super flavorful teas and delicious fresh waffles that u make yourself. Definitely my 1st choice in Walker location was perfect too. FYI We booked at arrival and the cost was the same as on line agents such as
hotels . com which was very nice to get a good rate face to face another 5*'s

Stayed here after biking on the Heartland trail. The facility is neat as a pin, well maintained both inside and out. The staff is very friendly and helpful, allowing for early check-in, on one occasion, and switching our room to one that was ready on another occasion. The hotel is very quiet, rooms very comfortable which made for a good night's sleep. The free breakfast had a lot of items to choose from, including waffles, biscuits & gravy, fruit, cereal, toast, muffins, bagels. The attendant was especially helpful, friendly and cheerful. My family loves staying here when biking on the trail...this is our third stay in 2 years!

Room Tip: Rooms on the lake side are quieter since they don't have the road noise from highway 371.

Thank you so much for choosing us for your bicycle trip once again. We look forward to having you again and again. As I am sure you know, the trails in the area are improving with the connections to other trails in the area.

Thank you for making the comment on our clean and well maintained hotel as well as our breakfast attendant Mary. She is truly an asset to our little inn and everyone seems to enjoy her service.

No complaints whatsoever. The entire hotel was very clean including the lobby, hallways, breakfast area, as well as our room. Friendly staff. The breakfasts - in my and my husband's opinions - were great, and Mary really hustled to keep everything full as well as clean. There were scrambled eggs and seasoned potatoes one day, biscuits with sausage gravy another, french toast and sausage patties another day - this besides the usual fruits, cereals, breads, English muffins, bagels, muffins, yogurt, cream cheese, and waffles! Yes, there may be some carbohydrates there, but what do you expect? It's not a restaurant! This was much more than we've EVER seen in a hotel for a COMPLIMENTARY breakfast. They were tasty and more than enough of everything! It was a quiet location. No, there is no access to the lake or much of a view of it, but if that's what you're looking for you might want to go somewhere else. It was a beautiful location with trees around most of it and within a short driving distance to most anything in the city. There were also cookies and coffee available in the lobby at all times. Also another pleasant surprise was that our water for showers was always hot AND soft, and it didn't seem to matter what time of the day we showered. We'll definitely go back if we ever are in that area of the state again!

Room Tip: When we called for reservations we were told there were no rooms available, but actually found this...

This is a nice quite, clean hotel. The front desk team was very friendly and helpful.

Its pretty close to the casino and very close to the city of Walker. About a 1/2 - 1 mile for each destination.

The price is generally pretty good, however I stayed there when Moondance was going on so the prices were a bit higher.

Nothing but great things to say about the hotel. Would definitely stay here again. I'm just glad there were no train tracks near by. About the only critical comment was the breakfast could be a little bit more but that isn't a make or brak deal on the hotel.

If you like carbs, then you will like this breakfast. Nothing but carbs. Not even hard boiled eggs. Well there were bananas, but they were gone right away. The yogurt was hidden in a tiny refrigerator under the counter - but that was gone right away too.

There was no access to the lake. The view of the lake was blocked by huge trees.

The pool was nice - but the jets on the jacuzzi were broke.

No elevator

People were smoking in their rooms in the non-smoking section and the staff did nothing about it

No fitness center
