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.

This is a great place. Good location, Clean, Exceptional service. The Breakfast exceeded all expectations. We drove all Day from Dallas and were tired. when we arrived a hockey team had just checked in. The host ensured that we received a room at a quiet part of the hotel. Even though 17 rooms were occupied by the Hockey team the... More

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. The receptionist made sure to put us on the opposite side of the team and my parents... More

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

Very nice hotel. Checked in late and staff was waiting. The room was good sized and clean. Parking was easy and very accessible to get to room. Breakfast was average. I would recommend to anyone who is traveling across I-90.

This must be a fairly new hotel, if not it's maintained very well. Nice room, clean and tidy. About an hour and a half south of Minneapolis so it was perfect for us on our way back home from a Twins game. Reserved the room in advance (non-refundable) so the room was around $100...can't beat that as far as my... More

We were on our way out West to start our vacation. After trying some of the hotels along the interstate and finding them full we were directed to this one. That was the best thing to happen.
