We stayed here on the way back from S. Dakota. I couldn't believe that the ratings on Trip Advisor were 4.5 out of 5! We were given a room on the 1st floor 2 doors from the pool. When we walked in our room, the musty smell about knocked us over. We couldn't get the door to shut all they... More

Not only in that room but in the entire hotel. Its so rare for us to have a complaint like yours. I greatly appreciate that you brought these... More

We stayed at the Comfort Inn in Albert Lea on our way home from South Dakota. I chose it because of the TripAdvisor reviews. The location is convenient off the freeway at a truck stop. The good: As I mentioned, this is a very convenient location off of I-90 at a truck stop. The hotel room was clean, we had... More

Hello! I am so sorry that you didn't find our facility satisfactory. Please know that our guests satisfaction comes first here at the Comfort Inn. I am so sorry that the front desk agent didn't impress. She does have a medical issue but normally people find her very sweet and competent. I will certainly speak to her about this specific... More

We were a bit surprised at the location of this hotel, basically located in a smaller truck stop area. Very clean hotel and was extremely quiet. There are not a lot of dining options here (unless you want fast food) but we walked next door to the truck stop to eat. Staff were very pleasant. It is a convenient place... More

My brother was on the road; asked me to call ahead for reservations. Based on TripAdvisor reviews; I chose this hotel. Report this morning: best hotel he has stayed at in a long time; very quiet; even the guests were nice; staff was very accommodating (required a room to overlook parking lot as he was towing a trailer); great water...

This was a very nice, very clean hotel - very comfortable beds - very nice linens - very quiet - got a very good night's sleep. Breakfast area was kept very well stocked and very clean by Dorene - and there were 50 of us on our bus tour - and it all went very smoothly - check-in, breakfast, check-out.... More

Friendly and helpful staff, pet-friendly, comfortable bed. Suited our needs, and there was a restaurant in the Trails Travel Center next door (the Skol Tavern - busy place) No bath mat, but I'm sure that was just an oversight that day. Not much else in the area to pick from if you're traveling with a dog / we'd recommend.

The room was very nice, the beds were very comfortable, had a good nights sleep. The rates were quite reasonable. They had a nice breakfast area, with a nice array of items to choose from. Kim was making sure that the breakfast items were kept refilled. She did a good job keeping the breakfast area clean.

We spent a recent night here. Easy to find from the highway. Gas, and food choices are adjacent for convenience. Front desk staffer was nice, and also fast. This is an Interstate hotel that is aging, but is obviously well managed and maintained. Furnishings are basic, but unlike many similar places, things like clean grout lines, touched up paint, doors... More

Comfortable beds, quiet hotel on a Sunday night when we arrived around midnight. Desk clerk named Dawn was highly competent and very helpful when we discovered our room's refrigerator had been left open and was hot to the touch. She had a new one installed and the hot one removed in a matter of minutes. Breakfast was adequate, but nothing... More
