“Just what we needed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

My wife and I were traveling from Iowa to South Dakota for a funeral. Albert Lea was about halfway so we stopped at the Comfort Inn. We were first impressed by the friendly and efficient young woman who checked us in. Then we were impressed by the spacious, clean and comfortable room. We had a very relaxing evening reading in the comfortable chair, and we slept wonderfully. The morning breakfast was also very good. All in all we felt that we had had a little vacation on an otherwise not-so-fun trip. The motel is easy to get to from the Interstate, yet we didn't feel as if we were next to a busy highway. Great value.

The beds were excellent! You even got a choice between hard or soft pillows!!! We got a good night's sleep. You had a friendly breakfast staff and the food was good. The signs at the entrance of the hotel could have been better.

We checked in on Friday 7/26/13.Very nice clean hotel and rooms. Our bathroom door sticks room 203. Our room had a nice over-stuffed chair but you could not sit in this chair AND VIEW the TV. I wish the chair would have been in the floor lamp area so I could take advantage of that comfortable chair AND WATCH TV. After we checked in the KIDS(teen age boys) started to arrive. LOTS OF KIDS TWO baseball teams. Kids racing around and leaving 'BULLS-EYE' candy wrappers from the front desk everywhere. We left the hotel for dinner and returned for an evening swim. NO WAY!!!! Was that going to happen THE ENTIRE POOL AND ROOM was full of screaming boys and their couple of chaperons. The chaperons had tables of snacks and the entire pool, sauna and room was the TEAMS ONLY space. We as hotel guests could not use the pool for a relaxing dip so we went back to our room. The next morning hotels breakfast would like to have yogurt in vanilla or lemon NOT ONLY AVAILABLE flavor Raspberry with SEEDS YUCK....

Room Tip: When making a RSVP ask if they have scheduled teams staying.

What made our time at this hotel was the friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was great and Dorene was the best! The hotel was easily accessible from the highway. We found nothing to complain about and would happily stay there again.

Weather too cold, roads too slippery, too many cars in the ditch. Stopped at the Comfort Inn in Albert Lea MN. Had the most comfortable bed we'd slept in our entire trip. Breakfast attendant, Doreen, was a delight, very cheerful and helpful. Hotel is also located near a gas station and a restaurant.
