We had a great stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about the city and the attractions. The pool was nice and clean the water was warm and not over crowded. The room was also very clean and smells fresh. Our room was on the back side of the hotel which faced the highway and could get a bit noisy in the early morning if you are a light sleeper not so good. The free breakfast was great, the food runs on a three day rotation so you don't have the same food every day.

Room Tip: Pick a room at the front of the hotel.

We stayed in a King suite. The room was very spacious and featured a hide-a-bed sofa. 2 flat screen tv's, a desk, mini bar fridge with vault and 2 closets. The bathroom was average and we did have a running toilet but other than that we were very pleased. Room was on the pricier side, but being a suite-maybe that is normal-we do not often book them. The pool & fitness area was very nice however the hot tub was not overly hot as we like. The breakfast was very good with bacon, sausage gravy & biscuits, waffles, and the regular cereals, toast-ables and fruit. Fresh milk and coffees as well as a variety of juice. One of the larger breakfast spaces I have seen in some time. They also have a loaner library program. Our only complaint was that the hotel was rather difficult to find. This is a Minot issue as a good portion of their roads dog leg and pick up somewhere else entirely. Had we came from the west, it was visable from the # 2 Highway.

Very clean, very comfortable, very well kept. The check in clerk was not very responsive but when I needed to go find a convenient store in the middle of the night...the night clerk was exceptional. It is right across the street from Kohl's so my wife enjoyed that...and only 3 minutes away from the main shopping mall. We will stay here again!

Room Tip: Great location for shopping and get up in time for the included breakfast. It gets busy.

We stayed one night while passing through Minot at the end of July. The hotel appeared to be fairly new and therefore was in good condition. The rooms were typical of the newer Country Suites I've stayed in - relatively large and well appointed. Our room had two queen beds with a fridge, microwave and a larger then normal tv. The clock radio had a dock for your IPod that I didn't bother to figure out. The only negative thing I found with the room was that the bed was a little too firm for my liking and I normally don't mind a firm bed, but I found my back was little stiff in the morning.

The staff was very friendly and helpful in pointing out a place to eat nearby. Which there are several good options a short distance away. The breakfast room was large and spacious and never got crowded from 7:00 when I ate until 8:30 when my kids made it down. Breakfast was nothing special - waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal & fruit, but it was kept well stocked and tidy.

The WiFi was a relatively speedy 5.0 Mbps even at the heavy usage times (although I don't think the hotel was very full). Unfortunately in the morning the WiFi was down but one of the staff pointed it out as soon as she saw me trying to connect on my IPad and told me they had a call in to a technician to get it fixed. No big deal, I just had to read the news the old fashioned way with one of the complimentary USA Today they provided.

At $114 + tax with our AAA card I would rate it a good deal and recommend staying there.

No complaints. Room, hotel and breakfast were great. Hotel is located right off the freeway and is very easy to get to. Hotel is very clean and still smells new. We will stay again next time through Minot.

Enjoyed my stay in June. Rooms were very clean and spacious and it had everything I needed. Beds were very comfortable. Liked the convenient location to the mall and a short drive to other activities I had planned.

My family enjoyed our stay at Country Inn and Suites Minot in June. Whether we stay at chain hotels or otherwise we place an importance in friendly efficient staff and clean well kept hotels. This shows they care about the guests and the hotel. They definitely won in these areas. Accidents happen and our toilet was fixed in no time. When our keys got deactivated by a new staff training mistake they were quick to correct the problem. We slept a touch late and gave ourselves only 10 minutes for breakfast and yet we were offered more batter for fresh waffles. I have a gluten allergy and often have difficulty with complimentary breakfasts not being suitable. Here they had several offerings allowing me to walk away quite content. A very short drive to the mall and the rest of our party staying at the hotel located there made it a convenient and extremely affordable choice. I've stayed in the chain previously on business and have found consistency in these points as well. It was nice to unwind in the fitness center and pool. Of course, the children enjoyed the free wifi and complimentary cookies.
