We had a great stay at the Country Inn and Suites. We were only there for one night and had a single room. It was very comfortable, clean, and quiet and had everything we needed. My wife looked into an open suite and said it looked great as well. The included breakfast was very good and had a nice variety... More

Allow me to premise the rating I've given this hotel. The property is in the midst of remodeling and therefore it doesn't have the decor that I know it will have from other properties holding this name. I came in at 3am wanting nothing but a bed. The gentleman knowing I was tired quickly checked me in and showed me... More

Clean and quiet rooms, great bed, good breakfast, helpful staff. I will book it again when passing through Watertown, SD. The room was roomy, the bathroom was large. There were no bad surprises. Although the site said it was in the midst of remodeling, we heard no noise and saw little sign of major work being done. The price was... More

Stayed here one night while traveling through. In the past we've stayed at the HEI in Watertown, but being Memorial Day weekend we couldn't get a room there so tried the Country Inn. Will probably stay at Country Inn again next time. They're doing some renovating, so some of the painting and things had a bit of an unfinished look,... More

Renovating can certainly be a challenge but we are excited to get to the finish line with this project so that it can be enjoyed by both the guests and the staff. It is a process but will be well worth it in the end. Please come back and get that final look, we are sure you will enjoy. Take... More

We selected the Country Inn & Suites because of the good things we had heard plus there would be a hot breakfast for us before we started two long days of meetings over the weekend. However, breakfast doesn't start until 7:30 AM on weekends, and we needed to be at the facility by 7:00 AM. So, instead of being convenient... More

They are in the process of remodeling so the hotel was not full. Very quiet stay and we enjoyed the breakfast in the morning - a good variety. Very convenient right off of 29 and across the road from the Terry Redlin Museum. Would recommend.

Not clean, staff charged cards, yes cardS, should have only charged the card we were using, not the guarantee card, but went ahead and tied up both. Renovations were very inconvenient, but understandable. Breakfast was good. Staff pretty rough around the edges. Not friendly or polite, borderline hostile on check-in.
