“unexpected surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2010

I have never stayed in a comfort inn but if this hotel is any indication I will change and make a point to stay in Comfort Inn.

I had booked a reservation on an online site but when I got there at 12 AM they could not find it because the site had not completed my reservation and it was still processing!!
The lady at the front desk actually told me the rate would be $30 less then what I was quoted by the online service and naturally I accepted her offer. That was second thing I decided that I should check with the hotel before making my reservation through online.

Room was comfortable, clean and met the standard that I usually expect from hotels that normally cost 40% to 50% more, off course, without naming names here.

I was very happy with the service and considering the price it was beyond the expectations.

My friends and I had a scrapbooking weekend at the hotel. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and neat. The hot tub and pool were so wonderful!

This room was large, clean and had elevator access. It was close to the expressway and truck stop but noise did not seem to be a problem.
There was a convenience store next door that had fast food choices available along with some groceries.
The only complaint I can come up with is the lack of refrigerator and microwave. The room was huge, there was plenty of room for them.
Free wi-fi - that worked :)

We have stayed at the Comfort Inn in Albert Lea, Minnesota a number of times & have never been disappointed. The rooms have been nice and clean, the beds and pillows are comfortable, and we find that we can sleep well because it is quiet. They have a good continental breakfast with a lot of selections: cereal, milk, juice, toast, waffles, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, fresh fruit, bagels, and coffee. I can't imagine that anyone wouldn't find enough to eat for breakfast there. We will return to the Comfort Inn at Albert Lea, Minnesota because we think it's a great place to stay.

Have stayed here several times over the past 4 years. Very clean and next door to a 24 hr Travel Center, which can a positive or negative. If you are on the east side of the motel, you will be overlooking the parking lot of the Truck Stop and the noise from the idling engines can be annoying. Th e bathroom doors won't stay open on their own, having a self-closer attached to them. Very awkward and annoying. Have never seen this type of set-up before on any motel/hotel I've stayed in from North Dakota to Texas. The staff claims the bathroom vent is automatic, but it does a poor job of keeping the humidity level down when the shower is used. The other entrances to the building have doors which can electronically lock after-hours, only allowing authorized guests entry to the property. They are NEVER activated, even during the wee hours of the morning. The management is inviting a security/safety liability lawsuit! We stay here because it is convenient and clean, and appropriately priced. Despite its flaws, I still recommend it.
