We stopped here without a reservation while traveling past on the interstate. We received the senior discount, some discount drink coupons for the Green Mill next door, and enjoyed an excellent complimentary hot breakfast. All together these added up to make a reasonably priced stay. We were there just for the sleep and got it. The room was clean, bed... More

What a wonderful motel....beyond our expectations for sure. We were passing through and landed in this wonderful Country Inn. Super clean and quiet near a nice walking path, good food, homey feel and comfy bed!

My family has stayed at the Country Inn & Suites Albert Lea many times. We love the fact that the hotel is very clean, comfortable, and convenient. The complimentary breakfast is wonderful, and we enjoy the indoor pool and hot tub.

It was extremely disappointing to receive your review. This is sincerely not typical of our hotel or the distinguished service that we provide to our guests. I am very surprised to hear that there were team members that your co-workers met that seemed disrespectful. Most of the staff love what they do and it shows. I also apologize that your... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I sincerely apologize that you encountered some issues that led to just an okay stay with us. We had just had our carpets professionally cleaned the morning of your arrival so this might have played a role in the off smell in your room and for this I apologize. The... More

Picked this as it was convenient to the highway as we were on a 5-state 1500 mile trip. Adequate facilities. Clean, and staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. Signage to find the hotel from highway was weak so use gps or keep your eyes open. Breakfast was adequate

This hotel was close to 35S, not too hard to manage off of I-90. Very friendly staff and clean, comfortable rooms, comfortable bedding and pillows. We were driving through on our way to Michigan and there are not a lot of good options here. We had a great stay and there is a restaurant next door that was good as... More

The hotel was recently renovated and is very nice. The staff was very helpful and friendly. My only very minor beef is that the bed was not very comfortable. I would recommend the hotel to others and would stay again if in the area.

I checked in late & the night clerk Mike was very friendly & had me checked in quickly. The hotel is always clean & all the staff are great. Will be back as always on all my future trips. A great stay for your money!

We travel with a large lab, and we have stayed in a number of Red Roof Inns because of that. The rooms there are much too small, the service is marginal, and cleanliness is adequate at best. I have stayed at Country Inn and Suites hotels on various other trips, but I didn't think that they accept dogs. When we... More
