“New Holiday Inn Express in Albert Lea, Minnesota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

This is a fairly new Holiday Inn Express that opened in September, 2012 at Albert Lea, Minnesota.

Interior Decor: Upgraded decor and furniture from the usual Holiday Inn Express chains I would have expected. Elegant and contemporary design, color and tone. Bed lamp was out of order but a hotel staff quickly offered a replacement bulb.

Exterior appearance: New Holiday Inn Express style - east side of Exit 11 off Interstate 35 in Albert Lea, Minnesota, just at the edge of the commercialized area. Small sized hotel.

Outside view from the room: Hotel front parking lot and Minnesota state highway 46. Rural and undistinguished.

Room size: Generously big. Plenty of room to stretch and be comfortable.

Price value: Very good.

Service: For Platinum member of Priority Blub, complimentary soft drink and snack (microwavable popcorn). Friendly staffs.

Bed: Firm. Nice light scent.

Room: A bit noisy heater. Otherwise, very quiet.

Room Tip: Try King Suite room for extra space.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We stayed here on a road trip in Sept one week after it opened. It is a typical new HIX, very bright open lobby and breakfast area with all the modern trims like large screen tv and waterfall. The front desk lady was friendly and welcoming and helped us sort out a problem or two. The bed was comfortable and the room nice. Access to the hotel is close to the I90 but a little work was necessary to figure out from the side road, a roadside hotel sign pointing the way in would help. Because it is new there was still a lot of white construction dust around both in the hallways(the lamps were coated in it) and in the bathroom on the door and walls and floor but hopefully that has been resolved by now. Growing pains, thats all, otherwise a good place to stay, we would again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevator.
