We stayed here over Christmas and I was glad we did. Everyone was friendly, the hotel was clean, the pool was lovely and the breakfast was nice. It is a wonderful place to stay, easy to find and the staff is always so helpful.

The beds were comfortable, I slept like a baby when I didn't expect to sleep. The breakfast was great, Kim was very friendly at the breakfast set up.the room was very clean(although I didnt think so at first when I saw the shower curtains but then I realized it was part of the design)

I travel for work and spend around 100 nights a year in hotels. I started staying here about 3 years ago and make it a point to stay here if I can. Many times I have driven an hour or better out of the way to stay here. The rooms are clean, updated, quiet and well appointed. The staff have... More

Very nice in many ways. Convenient off and on I 35 in "tropical" (extreme southern) MN. More than one convenient place for gas/fuel very near. Neat, tidy room. Ours had mature pine trees just outside the window. We could seed birds hiding from the weather. The trees also sheltered us from the adjoining truck stop's parking lot. Spa area is... More

On our way home from a trip west we spent a night in Albert Lea. I made a reservation at the Comfort Inn and was happy to see that it had won an "excellence" award. The desk clerk was very friendly and efficient at check in. Upon arrival at our room it smelled like someone had just taken a shower,... More

I am so sorry that the sheets were wrinkled ! I will look into it to find out why. Normally they come out of the dryer pretty well as long as they are folded right away. The deodorizer smell is a spray that we use to add a fresh scent to each room after it is clean. Its a part... More

We have stayed here before and find this is by far the nicest place to stay in Albert Lea. It is modern, friendly and the breakfast is awesome. It is just off the freeway so it is easy to find. The bed was great. They had a choice of pillows, we just like ours a tad bit softer.

I stayed here a year ago and found the experience the same; clean, quiet, good restaurants very near by. The complaints about truck noise I see in other reviews don't make sense to me. I'll return next year.

Thanks for the kind review! I'm glad the traffic noise didn't bother you! It kind of depends on the person. If someone is really used to quiet country living it can be a bother. If the wind is just in the right direction its more noticeable . It seems not to bother 99% of our guests. Thanks so much! Karen... More

I am so sorry about our breakfast staff not taking appropriate measures! This is inexcusable and believe me they know better! I will certainly speak to her and discuss staying focused.

We loved the room. We got a king bed with a whirlpool. The whirlpool tub was clean and plenty big enough for two people. The refrigerator was plenty cold enough to get our soda cans pretty cold. The room was spacious and had a nice feel. The room was painted modern colors with an accent wall a different color. It... More

We recently stayed at this hotel and were very happy. We were concerned when we first arrived because the hotel is close to the highway and next to a truck stop, but this was not an issue. The room was very quiet, nicely decorated, clean, and we found the staff to be quite friendly. Kim was working the breakfast area... More
