You were inadvertently booked in a smoking room and I apologized to you for that and offered to send you to one of our other motels a few miles down the road, but you declined. You were NOT charged $25.00 extra as you well know, you were charged a $25.00 pet deposit of which $15.00 would be refunded if the... More

Wendy the manager of this little establishment has been VERY accomodating. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Missed a coffee pot though. Other than that the price is right for my extended stay while working here in Albert Lea MN.

Motel 65 was perfect for us: simple but orderly rooms, wifi of enough quality for video streaming, hot water... More
