The hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating. They made us feel truly welcomed. The hotel was in a great location for shopping. A person could walk to the stores if they wanted. There is a restaurant right next door, which is very convenient. Love the free cookies they have at the front desk!! Their breakfast bar had much more than a typical continental breakfast. They have eggs, sausage, yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, fruit, waffles, toast, english muffins....It was so nice to be able to eat breakfast at the hotel and not have to spend more money at a restaurant for breakfast. Hotel room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We'll definitely stay here again!

This hotel is very conveniently located to the Chelsea Premium Outlets mall. You can walk right next door to the newer section and cross a fairly busy road to get to the other section. The one-bedroom king suite we stayed in was a nice size and very clean. The only things we disliked were that the main room was very dark because the bedroom has the only windows and the light doesn't make it to the other area - lots of lights to switch on, it was just a bit claustrophobic. There were 2 tvs, one in the bedroom and one in the main room and a small fridge and microwave. The pullout couch was reasonably comfortable for sleeping. The main drawback to this hotel was it's "banging door syndrome". They really need to put some pneumatic hinges or something on the doors to keep them from crashing every time someone inconsiderate goes in and out of rooms - particularly at night. The breakfast was very good - the area just got quite congested at peak times (sausage patties, egg patties, pastries, English muffins, toast, bagels, 4 cold cereals, hot oatmeal pkgs., coffee, tea, hot chocolate, milk, 3 juices, yogurt) There are also 2 waffle makers (1 of which was out of order). The pool area is also very nice and quite clean. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. There are some good restaurants and a large grocery store in the town of Albertville (drive under the I-94 underpass to find the town.).

This hotel is located right next to the outlet mall. It also shares a parking lot with a bar & grill that has very good food. You can eat in or order food for pick-up. Ask for a menu at the front desk. We stayed one night in a Family Suite. The suite is a L-shaped room with a door in between bedrooms. In the first bed-room there is a king-size bed, tv, desk, 2 chairs (no table), small fridge, microwave and small coffee pot. The bathroom is also located in the first bedroom right as you come into the room. The 2nd room was smaller. About 10x10 with a queen size bed and a tv on top of a small dresser. The rooms are divided by a door covered by a curtain type thing. The light shines in from the main bedroom at night if they have their lights on. We used a blanket to cover the door and block out the light. We used the pool 3 times while there. The kids enjoyed the small wading pool w/fountain. Maximum depth in wading pool is 1 foot. The main pool was small. But very nice temp. Max depth is 5 feet .The hot tub was not working the day we checked in. Actually the bubbles turned on but the heat was not working. The next morning when we tried it the heat was working but no jets. Front desk was very helpful when we asked for extra blankets. Fresh cookies and coffee all day long. Nice continental breakfast with hot waffels. Check out is noon. I would stay here again.

I stayed with my wife and 3 young children as a stop to Wisconsin. The hotel made my family feel very welcome and took the time to answer any and all questions. My wife enjoyed the shopping at the outlet mall next door, and my kids enjoyed the warm pool area. We had a 2 room 2 queen suite that was clean and comfortable. While there was no restaurant on site, there was and excellent one that shared the same parking lot. The hotel is just NW of the twin cities off of I-94 and very easy to locate and access. We had a good quiet night's sleep and continued on our trip the next day. A real winner.

We stayed at this property this past weekend. It is literally within a few feet of the Albertville Outlet Mall. It was a very well kept property. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and modern. It has a pool, a hot tub and a separate little pool with a middle sprinkler for toddlers. That was a nice touch. Breakfast in the morning was hot and plentiful. I would stay at this property again in a heartbeat. I definitely got my money's worth.
