We visited the hotel again during a visit to see family. The hotel consistently provides wonderful service and clean neat rooms. While the rooms were excellent, there was a cleaning service in to scrub the carpets again! I can see why this place continues to be a favorite. The breakfast staff is outstanding. She makes sure everything is set and... More

Helpful and personable employees; very clean room and toilet; linens, sheets and towels smell really fresh and are all new. Carpets are well maintained; highly recommended for both business and leisure trips. Internet service is excellent. The mini gym and pool is a great plus.

We were able to have room for 3 people as we were in the suite. Relatives stopped by and visited. We only had a maximum of 2 people visiting at a time. We had a living room besides a bedroom with 2 queen beds, We always stay here ,

Very good. The entry off the highway was very convenient. Easy Access to the Lobby. Fresh coffee and cookies ready when check in. Room warmed up very nicely. I had a good nights sleep! Breakfast was fresh and satisfying. Pool was closed for cleaning but that was okay with me. Bed was comfortable.

We loved the layout of the kids room with bunk beds in a separate room with a separate TV. Kids also loved the complimentary cookies in the lobby! The complimentary breakfast provided a good value. Also, there is a Green Mill right next to the hotel that we were able to walk to instead of driving. Unfortunately we found our... More

We had stayed at this hotel 4 years ago when visiting my husband's home town. This time, his Mum's memorial service (next door) brought us back. The hotel is well located on a main street just a few minutes' drive from downtown Albert Lea and right beside a good all-round restaurant The Green Mill. The hotel is clean and comfortable... More

The entire staff was pleasant and helpful. The breakfasts were outstanding with a wide variety of foods. The location was conveniently located and had easy access to Hwy 65. I stayed 6 nights and was very comfortable. Everything was very clean except the carpet was dusty behind the heaviest furniture. I have allergies and the staff was very helpful by... More

I was there on business meeting and the Hotel was my ideal location for my stay. The staff right from check-in, and at the breakfast Lounge went above and beyond to ensure my stay was memorable. I definitely would stay in the hotel again.

Nice place! We have stayed her several times while traveling and it is always clean, quiet and priced right. We will probably stay here again. We did not take advantage of the free breakfast this time but we have in the past and it was very good.

I really am a fan of Country Inn & Suites, but have been disappointed lately in our stays (surprisingly the disappointing stays are in the home state - Minnesota). Booked our stay with Club Carlson shortly before our stop. When checking in, I requested an upgrade to a suite as I was sick and was not sleeping well, my husband... More
