We had a group of people, with a block of rooms. No one had a good experience. One had bugs, one had food/garbage on the floor, beds not regular sizes. most are a version of full size. The overall experience was a very unhospitable. The internet was free, but sketchy. Other members of the party said they saw the pool... More

We called while traveling at midnight and the desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The room had been recently remodeled so the hotel looked nicer inside than the outside appearance. Very good breakfast and again, the staff was very professional and friendly.

This year was our worst stay at ABVI. It started off with the desk clerk being rude. The first set of room keys did not work. The room/bedding smelled musty,The bathroom shower curtain was covered in MOLD. I don't usually write reviews, but this place was bad enough that I did.

I felt that although the staff was friendly, we did not receive satisfaction in the areas of cleanliness, safety, and availability of all services. The motel is old, , and the carpeting in the lobby and halls were dirty, the pool had a scum on the walls above the water line, and the carpet in our room was dirty and... More

I stayed at this hotel on my recent trip to the county fair. The staff was very friendly at the front desk, but the rooms themselves left a lot to be desired. At first glance they look clean. But upon further inspection there was hair that wasn't mine in the bathtub, and toenail clippings between the beds. Pretty gross really.... More

Not a lot of choices in Albert Lea but we could have done better. Issues: extremely worn carpets, slow draining shower, no ice machines that worked, security doors not secure and the hot breakfast? Only if you poured coffee on your cereal or burnt your toast. The only fruit was grapefruit, which statin users cannot have. Positives? The bartender was... More

Other than a friendly desk clerk, don't waste your money. Dirty hallways, hair in bathroom, old soap in shower from previous guest, dirty bathroom mirror, television didn't work, and nothing good about the breakfast. The bed was comfortable but a little wary of bedding due to overall conditions.

We spent an entire day packing up our home and getting out of town. We left many hours after we thought we would and therefore could not make our first day destination of Des Moines. So, we made it to Albert Lea from the Twin Cities and this was the only hotel available. We should have stayed in Owatonna. I... More

Not a great experience. After our initial check in was finally okayed, we were told the ice machine was broken so if we had that need we should contact the restaurant. Should we want to swim we should pick up our towels from the front desk. We went to park outside our room entrance and were asked by a worker... More

After a lengthy internet search for a motel with availability on the 4th of July, I chose Americas Best Value Inn in Albert Lea, MN. They had a room and the price was right. When we arrived for check-in, the first thing I noticed was how drab the outside of the building was and that the parking area and landscaping... More
