I was skeptical when I choose this hotel for our business stay, but there are not that many choices. Upon my arrival I was greet by a very friendly lady.

“This is a Country Inn & Suites. There really aren't any bad rooms that we've ever had. The next night we stayed at one in Chanhassen, MN and one of our room walls was the back of the elevator. Never heard a thing.”
