I have stayed here many times over the last 5 years as a pilot car. In May I stayed and the new manager would not give us a room we wanted. She was rude. I called the owner and he looked into it. He called me recently and said there was new management. I stayed last week and was given... More

My wife didn't wish to pay for a Regular motel so we ended up in this place. It has to rang has one of the direst places I've been since Nam. Paint chipping, mold or stains on the wall heater. Soup and shampoo from China, carpet coming up. It's the kind of place that you lock the door and then... More

We were weary travelers on a budget. At 2 am on the road hotels are hard to come by. We were ecstatic when there was a room open in Albert Lea, with a king bed to boot! Boy were we sorry. The room didn't seem so bad at night. We hopped into bed and soon were in dreamland. Oh how... More

The sheets were clean and the mattress was comfortable but that is the only positive I can think of. The periferary of the room was dirty, the carpet wrinkled and stained and ...burn hole? The room smelled badly of stale smoke despite being assured it was a no smoking room. Cigarette burns in the comforter, only one washcloth, no ice... More

When we booked the room on the website it was supposed to be a room with 2 queen beds. When we got there, the room was tiny With only 1 bed. The remote for the TV didn't work. There was dirt and hair along all the heat vents and baseboards. Plus when checking in they had the wrong credit card... More

I booked a hotwire.com hot deal for a 3 star hotel and got this dump. I paid $93 for two night non refundable. I was immediately regretting my purchase. We got to the hotel and the last checking us in was wearing a dirty tank top short shorts and no shoes. The lobby smelled and was outdated. We got our... More

We got stranded in an unusual snow storm. I am in a wheelchair and our car was buried in the parking lot in a couple feet of snow. The female manager (Heather) worked with my wife and another man for 20-25 minutes shoveling our car out before we could continue our travels. Well beyond the duties of the hotel Mgr.... More

Stayed at this location because we were sick and the price was in our range. Thought it was cute till we got into the room. The floor wasn't vacuumed, the furniture was all broken (had to eat dinner on the bed), most of the fixtures were damaged, and everything was dusty. Little did I know the worst was to come.... More
