We stopped here on a road trip. The property was clean, check-in was fast. We got a one bedroom suite to have more space for our family. I would recommend this room for anyone traveling with children as it gives you room to stretch out after being in the car all day. The continental breakfast was good. We didn't get... More

I stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago when I was in Alert Lea for a train show. As always I was very pleased with this chain. Have stayed in many of their rooms and have never been disappointed. Very clean, friendly staff, nice whirlpool, and always fresh cookies on checking counter. Will stay any chance I get.

Stayed here while passing thru to South Dakota. Nice clean rooms. Comfortable beds. Loved the in room popcorn! Nicest place in Albert Lea to get a room for the night. Friendly staff. Do yourself a favor and order pizza delivery from Jakes pizza. You can thank me later. :-)

Hotel has been remodeled recently and was well done. Staff was friendly and helpful when we had questions. Rooms were extremely clean and comfortable. There was a dog show in town so we saw quite a few dogs in the dog friendly area of the motel. Still it was very quiete

This is one of the nicest Country Inn & Suites I've ever stayed in. Bed comfortable, ample pillows, flat screen tv, larger than normal hotel fridge, microwave. Everything was clean and stocked. A/C was on when we arrived and wasn't loud. Stayed on 3rd floor and was very quiet even by the elevator. Had guest washer & dryer area, bell... More

Very satisfied with the hotel overall. Rooms were clean and well maintained with bright bathroom lighting. Beds were comfortable with good quality pillows. Breakfast was tasty. Pool seemed to have a potent chemical smell to it so kids didn't enjoy using the pool. Laundry facilities available. Green Mill restaurant across parking lot with delicious food.

It has clean rooms, price is good, and there is food nearby. Almost as good as it gets for the value travelers. The staff was excellent the night of our stay which can easily be the differentiator at this level hotel. I would definitely stay here again.
