Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Dallas-Love Field (Medical Center)
Ranked #121 of 206 Hotels in Dallas
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Clean updated rooms with friendly staff and wonderful grounds. Excellent breakfast. The rooms are all non-smoking but there are lovely patios and balconies and common sitting areas with smoker poles. I know there are others out there who still enjoy a smoke (or two) and this hotel was perfect.

My family had the pleasure of recently spending two nights at the Country Inn & Suites. The stay was brilliant! The hotel cannot be faulted in any way. No doubt remains with my family that we have found our new weekend getaway spot, and, indeed, we will be returning to this lovely hotel for another stay soon.

The grounds are well maintained. Guest parking is secured and gated, and a valid room key is needed to access the parking area. There is only one way in to the parking and one way out, so guests have to drive around the entire back of the property to exit. The building entrances are also secured and require a valid room key to unlock, so my family felt very safe at this property.

The exterior of the hotel is gorgeous, with beautiful landscaping at every turn. The location is just off Interstate 35E at Northwest Highway in Dallas, so the property is easily accessible. There are a great many other hotels in the immediate area, and there are restaurants galore within walking distance or a short drive.

If you have stayed at a Country Inn & Suites before, then you are familiar with the standard vibe of this variation of the Carlson properties: homey lobby with fireplace, bookshelves with the Read-and-Return books, a staircase to the second floor, and coffee and cookies for guests. With that in mind, you will be pleasantly surprised with the complete change of style at this Country Inn & Suites. This particular property was formerly a Courtyard by Marriott, and the Carlson group have done a masterful job at keeping the trendy feel of the former building occupant. The lobby is, frankly, breathtaking. Dark wood, recessed lighting, bright splashes of accent color, and lots of seating on many different levels of the lobby. It certainly doesn't feel like a Country Inn, and I love the departure from the ordinary.

Upon checking in, my family was upgraded to a two room suite. Essentially, the suite consisted of a sleeping room with a king size bed and an adjoining sitting room with a fold out couch.. Both rooms had separate bathrooms. Room 212 was the sitting room and Room 214 (considered to be part of Suite 212) had an accessible bathroom. Each room had its own air conditioner controlled by a digital wall thermostat, and each room had a balcony. The rooms have undergone the recent upgrade and refreshing supported by Country Inns & Suites, and the upgrades truly were the stars of the rooms. The bed linens were pristine. My wife and I are both fans of a duvet nestled between two flat sheets, and that is exactly what the bedding was. Neither room could be faulted in any way.

WiFi is available throughout the property. The speed of the Internet was reduced somewhat due to the multiple connections made to it by all of the hotel guests each evening, but during the day it was fast.

Complimentary breakfast is another of the hallmarks of Country Inns & Suites, and this property had a terrific spread for guests. Each morning that we were there, hot scrambled eggs and sausage patties were on the buffet. One morning, the buffet had diced hash browns, and the next morning, we saw biscuits and gravy. There is a variety of cold cereals, hot oatmeal, yogurt, waffles, toast, bagels, danishes, and a variety of fresh chilled fruit. The coffee bar was kept stocked throughout our stay, and both hot chocolate and a variety of teas were also available alongside the coffee.

The shining gem of this property has to be the courtyard area. With loads of relaxed and comfortable seating around, a fire pit, and an outdoor pool, guests can unwind in an area that is not accessible by or even visible to people who are not staying at the property. Therefore, there is a sense of privacy and seclusion that comes when enjoying this area. Guest room balconies do overlook the pool area, though, so it is not completely secluded. The indoor jacuzzi, located near the pool, is, unfortunately, permanently closed.

My family wants to recognize three star employees who we encountered during our stay. First off, Amit Patel made our stay truly enjoyable. He ensured that our room was comfortable and acceptable. We passed him a couple of times in the hallway, and we were warmly greeted each time. Mr. Patel is exactly what we would expect from a manager of a Carlson property. Next, both Ebony and Francesca are stellar employees at guest reception. Ebony immediately recognized my family as Club Carlson members (something that rarely if ever happens with us anymore), and both she and Francesca were constantly inquiring if there was anything that they could do to make our stay more comfortable. The housekeeping and maintenance staff that we saw were smiling and greeted us in a friendly manner. There was one small glitch with the accessible toilet in that the toilet seat was loose. Maintenance was on the spot within minutes and had it fixed in moments. This is not a problem in any way, and we were pleased that it was addressed so quickly.

All in all, our expectations were certainly exceeded during this stay, and we are looking forward with great anticipation to the next time that we will be staying with our new friends at the Country Inn & Suites.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early June. What stood out right away was the excellent customer service at the front desk. We were upgraded to a king suite which had a nice view of the courtyard/pool. Having two full bathrooms in a hotel room was definitely a first time for both of us! The beds were pretty comfy, and the continental breakfast was outstanding. There are several horseshoe booths in the lobby where families can eat and watch tv! The hotel has obviously had some renovations done, which makes this hotel an even better value. While the hotel is in a pretty good location (>5 minutes from DART station, >2 minutes from several food options), there is a lot of construction going on near the hotel. It's not a major inconvenience however. This hotel is a GREAT VALUE!

I have stayed at many hotels travelling for business and my enjoyment of my stay is determined by the front desk staff. In this case the staff went out of their way to make sure my stay was comfortable. 2 staff members in particular, Shree and Francesca did an outstanding job making us fell welcome. This hotel used to be a Marriott Courtyard and has just recently become the Country Inn and Suites. The rooms a comfortable and provide the amenities for business or personnel travel.

Room Tip: If you can book a courtyard room with a view of the pool during the summer months.

Room Tip: this is not a high class place but they sure make u feel as it is.

We stayed here for 3 nights, we had a huge room with 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms ( 1 was accommodated for wheelchairs ) . The bed was king size and very comfortable . The room was very clean. We had a nice patio, with a view of swimming pool and outdoor area. ( only comment is no towels in pool area). There is also a nice fitness area.
The breakfast is good with a nice variety.
Very friendly team at front desk, who helps you with everything you need. There is also good wifi signal throughout the hotel with an area for printing boarding passes if necessary.
Good acces to downtown, 10 min by car.

Stayed in a king bedroom. Bed was extremely comfortable. Outdoor area was relaxing and peaceful. Great breakfast and great service. We had an issue the first night with the Ac unit but it was properly taken care of and we were in a new room quickly. The location was perfect for dining and night life. Would highly recommend and we will be staying again during future visits.
