We stayed here on our way to Wisconsin. Newly renovated rooms helped make this a good overnight option in Albert Lea, Minnesota. Applebee's within walking distance made this even more enjoyable. The breakfast buffet had all of the typical hot and cold items. Pleasant front desk staff made us feel comfortable about our stay. Ask for a room away from... More

I would not stay here again. Confirmed room type does not mean anything to this motel. They suggested I go to another motel to try to find the type of room that THEY had confirmed to me. I feel that we should have been given the type of room that was confirmed by them. I would not have booked here... More

We did look into the history when this reservation was made. Unfortunately, this was an error when the reservation was made. We do stress to clients to look thoroughly through the detailed description before booking their room. If you have any questions or concerns, I would be happy to help you address any. More

We stayed here for only one night during a family emergency. The hotel room that we were in was newly carpeted and very nice. There were 2 queen beds. We were given fresh cookies by the desk clerk as we checked in. We had to be up very early 4 a.m. because of surgery at the hospital so we asked... More

Stopped here on the way through town. Seemed like new carpet and mattresses in the room. Very clean facility, nice friendly front desk staff too. Didn't partake of the breakfast but it appeared to be standard "business hotel" fare with eggs, waffles, fruit, etc. Would stay here again.

Nice rooms. However, A bit over priced as most hotels in Albert Lea area. We stayed only one night there. Nice breakfast area. I was glad to see hot tea as an option with the coffee. Comfortable beds, hot shower. Clean pool. Order a pizza from Jakes!

Overall hotel is OK. However, DUE TO NO FAULT OF OUR OWN, WE WERE LOCKED OUT OF OUR ROOM FOR SEVERAL HOURS. We were on a time schedule. My son and I went to the pool while my husband went to pack car. Door lock malfunctioned and even staff couldn't get in. Nor maintenance. Had no cell phone to call... More

I made reservations well in advance for a weekend that was very busy with sporting events. On the day I was to check in I called to let them know I wouldn't be checking in until 9:00 p.m. They didn't have a reservation for me. When I said I had a confirmation number I was told my room was cancelled... More

This was an easy place to find, just off the interstate, conveniently located. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable and very close to many restaurants for your choice. Included breakfast was delicious. If in the area, this is a great place to stay and very reasonable rates.
