So the only nice part of this hotel is the outside is pretty, The rooms are musty smelling (in the winter of all things), our room with the sleeper was from 1970 and it was very visibly saggy and had very large holes in the fabric along with stains that I don't even want to know.

On the frontage road, along US 10 heading to Detroit Lakes, is this hotel. It lacks the exterior charm and substance of other hotels closer to town. From the picture I am guessing it got some updates this summer. I stayed here in June. I was busy and am just now getting to writing this review. As always with a...

I expected more from a Country Inn. They...

We should've checked the reviews before we stayed here. Most of them are very true. I've stayed at many Country Inn and Suites and the Carlson company should be embarrassed by the standards of this one. Our sheets were stained, the floor was dirty and worn, the bedskirt was ripped, the wallpaper was coming off, the drapes had holes through...
