Nice property right off Hwy 65. Hot breakfast with eggs, pancakes and meat plus continental fare. The carpeting in my room was a bit worn but the room was clean. I loved the high gloss granite on the floor in the lobby and the hallways.

While on vacation I booked a room here because of a lg discount through an Internet site. Desk guy was very nice, lobby was clean and bright, as were the halls. The room was old, dated and musty/moldy smelling. The light in the bath was tempermental so we finally just left it on. There was a fine layer of dust... More

Price sounds great however, it is so nasty! I made my family leave. There is NO way this passed any sort of inspection. It is filthy!!! Stayed 20 minutes and that was 20 minutes too long. Yes that's right a hot dog bun under the bed, chips all over the ground, bathroom was so dirty as you can see by... More

Night stands covered in sticky residue, like soda (we hope) 4. Crappy wifi. Took forever to post this. 5. Made coffee in coffee maker, but NO CUPS. Had to... More

Great place to stay. Staff very friendly and helpful. Will stay here again and recommend this place for travelers on a budget. Room was clean, quiet with a comfortable bed. Nice flat screen TV. There was also a very nice indoor pool and hot tub.

I'm going to give Heritage 3 stars because the staff really mostly very accommodating. Thea at the front desk did thr best she could to accommodate us. The rooms are in rough shape, stained carpets, black mold on the inside of the shower curtain, dirty in-room coffee maker, poor cooling system. (We did get a fan from them). Not enough... More

I'm here now. It's nice and clean. Staff are friendly. I think it's a great stay for price. Definitely recommend if you need a place to stay and on a budget. Would rather it had a mini fridge or microwave in the room but you can't get everything for such a deal. They are making renovations to turn it into... More

Very nice swimming pool. Also has a hot tub. Face it. On a road trip all you are looking for is a comfortable bed and hot shower. This is not a destination vacation but great value for a stop along the way. The service was exceptionally friendly. Doors and fixtures are a bit dated. Bathrooms are clean.

The toilet ran every 3 minutes, the air is controlled by the front desk, was super hot. Our friends had ants, we had a... More

I am a youth baseball coach and the whole team and parents stayed at the Heritage Hotel in Albert Lea on the weekend of May 20-22. We got the rooms for $55. Considering the price, ratings and reviews we were not expecting much. We were all pleasantly surprised. First of all, the are renovating the whole hotel. The lobby and... More
