Very nice hotel and would definitely return. The location is good and the staff treat you well. Good breakfast and internet is easy to get on. Clean rooms that are comfortable and set up well. The shower has a good spray and the bathroom vanity is large enough for your needs. Good coffee too!

Great place to stay. Easy off and on. Clean and attentive staff. Be sure if you have time, drive into town and circle the lake, nice homes. Breakfast was good with do it yourself waffles. Good lighted parking, felt safe.

Stayed here on way to Glacier National Park and Yellowstone, very nice room, comfortable bed, breakfast was one of the best we've had, the only negative was there was a school Baseball tournament that weekend so the price was high but that's something that at times are unavoidable, I would stay there again most likely!

My family (4 kids and 2 adults) stopped here late one night (12:30 am). The hotel was clean, fit us all (one room, two beds) and was quite. The breakfast in the morning was decent, well stocked and the ladies working it kept the area clean. Great place to stop over on a long trip.

Although the call center told me there were no rooms available I was able to get a very nice room, at a reasonable rate. Breakfast was good and the staff was friendly and helpful. Facility was clean, with plenty of parking.

We stayed a night here en route to another destination. Room was reasonably clean, decent linens, comfortable bed. I did have to ask for a top sheet in order to cover the recliner--it seemed dirty. Breakfast was better than most, but typical. I liked having a kuerig brewer in the room. Received a convenient room assignment on main floor and... More

After visiting the July 4th celebrations downtown Albert Lea I decided to go out of town for accomodation. This hotel turned out to be a good alternative. The only thing not to my liking was the smell of food from the kitchen in the morning.

Dear John, I am very sorry for the paint smell and the weather the night of your stay. I know how disturbing it was for all of us that night. I can't stress how sorry I am for the power outages and for the paint on your clothes. Please know I did reduce your rate at check-out. I would gladly... More
