Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Grand Forks
Ranked #11 of 28 Hotels in Grand Forks
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. We arrived a bit early for the 3pm check in but we were given out room right away.
Overall the room was spacious and very clean. The carpet had some minor stains. There was a desk and free internet access. The TVs in the sofa area and bedroom were large flat screens. Our suite had a microwave and small refrigerator as well as supplies to make morning tea or coffee. The bathroom was spotless and well supplied with towels although the washcloths were quite thin and well used.
The king bed was comfortable. We like our room quite cool at night and appreciated the fact that we could open a window. We used the extra blanket in the closet as we did not want to use the comforter on the bed. It was a dark colour and we could not tell if it was clean or stained.
The complimentary breakfast was good with both hot and cold items.
The hotel lobby offered coffee, cookies and fruit during the day.
The hotel is close to shopping and had an adequate amount of parking available.

Stayed in a two room suite with two queen beds in the bedroom and a pullout couch and chair in the living room. The room had two tv's so we didn't have to all watch the same show, which we all appreciated! The fridge and microwave were handy - we used them alot. Found it to be noisier than usual this trip. Often heard people coming and going. Chalked it up to noisy people since we don't usually have that problem. The breakfast area had a great selection of food and beverages, and the staff was helpful, but not overly friendly. Tables were kept clean, and the food was well stocked. Coffe, cookies and fruit are available in the lobby, and there is a selection of books that can be borrowed and returned to another location if you don't finish it during your stay. The hotel is close to shopping, and restaurants.

Had a 2 nite stay Aug.20&21, 2012 with our daughter & baby but found this place to be VERY noisey. Could here people walking in halls at all hours and that included from floor above. Could hear conversations of people in next room and also people above. Did not get much sleep first nite and because we were leaving in another day, did not ask to change room, with crib and everything. Room was fine with all amenities, staff was friendly & breakfast met our needs. Unfortunetly we will not stay at this country Inn again.

I've always tried to stay at the Country Inn and Suites, no mater where I've traveled in the U.S.
My stay in Grand Forks was great, with a clean and comfortable room. Location is an important thing to me, and the location is great. Close to shopping, food, and the main highway to make my trip convenient. The only thing that would make this location better would to have a lounge or restaurant right next door,

Nice hotel conveniently located near major stores. However, upon entering our room, the washroom was not clean at all and the bed had a hair on the sheets. Called front desk and they had housekeeping come clean right away and change bedding. Breakfast area is huge but the food was not kept full. Had to constantly ask staff for things or let them know stuff was out. Also, one day they were serving french toast and they were hard pieces of bread. Pool area was nice and big but the smell of chlorine was super strong!

Six weeks at this hotel and no complaints yet.
There is a number of very friendly Managers that work the front desk. They have always gone far out of theyre way to make me feel comfortable and welcom.
The rooms are abundantly spacious clean and quite.
The breakfast offered daily is a 7 on a scale of one to 10 and features a variety suitable for most tastes.
The pool area has a nice little area for children and there is more than one hut tube to choose from.
The location of the hotel is within 1/2 mile of many major retailers ranging from Lowes to Macy's.
15 minutes to the airport with NO shuttle service.
If its a quality, reliable hotel in Grand Forks N.D. that you are looking for, this one is for you.
Enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: The standard suite has more than ample space for the business traveler.

I stopped in here very late one night after driving from Minot because my room was given away (thanks a lot Days Inn). When I arrived the front desk had my key ready to go, I didnt have to stand around waiting and filling in paperwork. That is very nice. When you're arriving at 1:00 AM that last thing you want to do is fill in paperwork.
The room was fairly large, clean and comfy. I didn't stay long, but what I saw was good. Breakfast was average, but fine.
