I work in an organization where frequent travelling is required. And it was during one of our official tours with our clients when I got to visit Indore, also known as ‘Mini Mumbai’. We came across multiple options when we were looking for hotels in Indore and finally decided to stay at Hotel Country Inn & Suites By Carlson. The hotel is centrally located in the city which makes it very convenient to explore the downtown Indore.
There are multiple hotels near the airport but this one is really worth checking out. It takes just 20 minutes to reach the hotel from the airport and is also surrounded by multiple malls and restaurants. The hotel is also very near to the railway station
This was my first stay at Country Inn & Suites, Indore. The main lobby of the hotel is simple but spacious. Hospitality and cleanliness is unquestionable.
Country Inn Accommodation
Hotel Country Inn & Suites have a wide variety of rooms to select from- Superior, Deluxe and Executive. I stayed in the Superior room. The room was spacious and comfortable with all ultra modern decor. It was a well-furnished room with 2 twin beds. The mattress and linens are so comfortable that makes you feel relaxed when you lay down after returning back from a long and tiring day. You can enjoy the evening in your room by watching your favourite soaps on cable TV and keep yourself abreast with the latest news by reading the free morning newspaper.
The hotel is not that fancy but still has all the basic necessities. There is also a workstation where you can sit and plan out for your next day schedule.
The room is well equipped with all the basic necessities- free wifi, a mini refrigerator, electric kettle along with coffee and tea facilities, iron with an iron board and a minibar.
The attached bathroom is separated by a glass and it is also equipped with all facilities including the hair dryer. For me, facilities are secondary. The first thing that I seek in a bathroom is hygiene and cleanliness. And for this, I give Country inn & Suites- 10/10.
In the evening, after relaxing for a while and sipping a hot coffee, I thought of checking out the whole property. The staff introduced me to the entire premises:
CIS Meeting rooms and banquet hall.
If you are planning to host a bash for your friend or a business conference, the hotel has many options for meeting rooms and banquets to choose from.
There are in total 5 meeting rooms and banquets: Boardroom, Ebony, Ivory, Onyx and they have recently launched their rooftop Nebula banquet hall. Nebula, being my favourite. It has a capacity of approx 600 persons. It’s a very elegant and beautiful banquet hall and the small lights flashing from the roof makes it even more striking.
Multi Cuisine Restaurant & Bar
Country Inn has an on-site global restaurant called Mosaic, with a peppy ambience and amiable staff. The chefs prepare varied palatable cuisines. Every evening at 7 pm, they have a nice buffet dinner where everybody will definitely find something to suit their taste buds.
Mornings at Country Inn & Suites are really pleasant with their complementary & hot buffet breakfast. As they have a lot of foreigner guests at the hotel, they have a wide variety of the morning meal to choose from- Indian, Chinese, Mexican and what not.
They also have on-site bistro- Big Shot. It’s a cool place to spend some time with friends, have a semi-formal business meeting or just loosen up yourself over a liquor. Their expert blender can prepare a variety of cocktails as per your preference.
Last but not the least, Country Inn & Suites offers 24 hours in-room dining. This is one of the best options for people like me, who get midnight hunger pangs. Although, options are limited but still it’s good enough to please your starving soul.

Country Inn Fitness Centre
For people who are constantly travelling, finding a gym nearby is quite challenging. But getting access to gym inside the hotel is like a boon for fitness enthusiasts. In Country Inn & Suites, it’s not that fancy state-of-the-art fitness centre. Although the gym is pretty small but still doing a cardio or working on a treadmill desk is not a bad idea to start your day off.
In a nutshell, Hotel Country Inn & Suites is a great budget hotel in Indore with all the comforts of home. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning to visit Indore.
