Very clean rooms and a very friendly staff insure I will be returning to this hotel next time in Albert Lea. The price is right too! It is also very close to dinner options with one restaurant sharing a parking lot.

I stayed here every week from the end of March to the end of June. The staff is fantastic and the manager, Heather, really goes out of her way to make you feel at home. Was able to leave baggage there over the weekend - a big plus. It comes with a breakfast - for a day or two ok,... More

We were traveling with another couple and reserved rooms ahead of time. My wife was sore from sitting in the car so we upgraded to a jacuzzi room. Very nice with plenty of hot water. Room was spacious and clean, comfortable bed. Free wi fi is nice also. The breakfast was a pleasant surprise, hot French toast, bacon, cereal, yogurt,... More

I have stayed at this property weekly since February and couldn't be happier. The rooms are already spacious and the suites are even better (have full sized fridge, stove and microwave) with two rooms, two TV's etc.. They have a good gym, pool and hot tub and a good breakfast. Pricing is good but the best part is the staff.... More

Awesome hotel! Stayed one night, they upgraded our room after letting us check in early, the front desk staff were super friendly and courteous. Room was spacious, beds comfortable, lots of tv channels, and perfect water pressure in the shower. Free bacon in the morning was a huge plus! Would definitely return.

I found this hotel basic but nice and not too far from the freeway. I stayed here for business and it was quiet, friendly, clean, and centrally located. The only drawback to this area (Albert Lea) was that after I arrived around 10:30pm from the airport, there was nothing open for dinner other than Domino's Pizza. I would stay here... More

We stayed here for the Christmas holiday and enjoyed our stay. They had breakfast until 10:30am instead of the 9:30am usual time on Christmas morning and that was very much appreciated. Everything is very clean and comfortable. Breakfast includes the waffle maker and a nice selection of yogurt parfait and oatmeal along with the traditional breakfast items. The children wanted...

My husband and I, along with my parents, recently stayed here for one night. Upon arriving, the lobby was very loud as a children's hockey team was also staying at the hotel and was running around on the upper level above the lobby.

Thank you for your review. I apologize for the noisy lobby upon arrival and also the lingering smoke smell in your room. Although we are a non-smoking property there are at times those that do not like to adhere to our rules and for this I apologize. I do hope that the next time you’re in the area you will... More
