This was a very good hotel. It looks fairly new, the rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. We stayed in a room with a full size refrigerator and kitchen. The room was designed for more of an extended/long term stay customer. Upon arrival, they didn't have the room type we'd reserved available. With a little extra time, the...

Reviewed 2 April 2017 via mobile

We stayed here one night on our drive to the black hills. Arrived really late after a long day of driving and were greeted with a friendly smile, a great, clean and comfortable room. We did not try the fitness center or pool but in the morning we enjoyed the breakfast buffe which was pretty standard selection for higher end...

Very limited car parking for guests. Apparently there was a complimentary breakfast but we were not advised of this. On check out the car park was blocked and it was not possible to drive car to entrance to collect bags, we had to carry our bags through the rain to the far end of the car park. A lot of...

We liked the previous reviews that we read. Decided to try this place for an overnight stay while traveling through. Arrived around 7:30 pm on a Saturday night. No reservations. They had 2 rooms left. We took the one with kitchenette. It was super clean hotel and room. Mattress was comfy and so were the pillows. Everything was in good...

Country Inn has renovated and brought their hotel into the 21st Century. I've always enjoyed the amenities of Carlson Country Inn but now they have ports for electronics. The amenities include wi fi, a nice flat screen TV, refrigerators in suites, and a continental breakfast. The breakfast alone can save you money but if you're looking for a hearty breakfast,...

The hotel was clean and bright. The staff was small town nice. We felt like we were the only ones in the hotel to be catered to. The breakfast was good and fresh. Mid-week they have a happy hour from 5-7 with good home cooking and refreshments.

“The suites offer refrigerators and an extra pull out bed in the living area. More space = friendlier travelers.”

“The rooms toward the rear of the hotel are not facing roads or traffic and therefore quieter.”
