Exactly what you need to rest and keep driving the day after. We were looking for a place where spend the night after visiting Mount Rushmore and on our way to Chicago, well thanks to the reviews from other fellow drivers we picked up this place, and it was what we needed a clean and spacious room, a nice bad, basic breakfast, friendly staff. I really liked the cleaning control remote!

My husband and I stayed in a 2-room suite. Im glad there was 2 bathrooms because one bathroom had a terrible smell. We just shut the door and didn't use it. The room was otherwise clean. Beds were comfortable. Pool was warm.

The breakfast was not too great. Eggs were crunchy, they had been on the buffet warmer too long, French toast sticks were hard, Sausage and Gravy was good. Staff was very nice at front desk, and restaurant staff were good.

We went bowling, it was RIGHT next door to the hotel, that was fun. Reasonable price for the bowling.

We stopped in here at 1am and were pleasantly surprised to get a decent deal, friendly and prompt service, and discover updates in our room like high efficiency toilets, and a keurig in the room. We slept comfortably, the shower was decent. We didn't use our breakfast voucher, but the on site restaurant buffet breakfast is a nice touch. Would stay here again!

My wife and I came to Albert Lea for a birthday party and booked into this hotel based upon published reviews. When we arrived we were greeted by the Desk Clerk named Skye who was very friendly and helpful.

Upon entering the jacuzzi room we booked we were pleasantly surprised and the cleanliness (did our usual bedbug check and finding nothing settled in).

While at the party we were startled to see our son show up unannounced. Knowing he needed a place to stay I ran back to the hotel where I again spoke to Skye about what our options were. He very quickly arranged for a rollaway to be delioverered to our room so that when we returned from the party later that evening it was already in place.

The friendliness extends to their attached bar where that evening we had a pleasant conversation with the bartender who even ran over to the front desk to see if there were any drink coupons avavilable for guests.

Everyone was helpful, friendly and the room was comfortable and clean. What more could you ask for.

Room Tip: The jacuzzi room was worth the small extra cost.

We walked into the lobby and were greeted by the very friendly front desk which is a very good start. They were also very helpful. Yes the hotel is old but the rooms were clean as were the lobby and halls and the pool area. The food was good at the lounge and priced right. I will stay at this hotel anytime i'm in the area. Thanks and hope to be staying here sometime in December 2013.

that's what you'll be asking yourself if you do not stay at this hotel. everyone goes out of their way to show you the utmost respect, and care. any trouble that arose they took care of it fast. evryone i met would have a huge smile on their faces and ask you how your day was going. if i wanted to talk to them and just tell them how my day was going, they would liten and sympathise with me. the front desk girls, and guys made me feel welcomed and loved. thanks Julie, Laura, and Nick for going above the call of duty.
the waitresses at the hotel restraunt were just as friendly and accomadating. enjoyed meeting and talking to both Kate, and Roni. who were not only beautiful girls, but beautiful souls, with a smile that would light up the world.
the rooms are not overly huge but very satisfying. i brought along my bigggggggggg cat(21lbs, 10 and a half" neck 13 years old) and he loved it as much as i did. after a few hours he claimed the room as his just like he does at home. in short you are out of your mind if you don't stay here.

We stayed here as we were passing through Albert Lea on the interstate. The room was a standard motel room and the breakfast was decent. Nothing amazing about the room, but nothing bad either. We stopped in late and left early the next morning. The only complaint we had was my kids ordered juice for breakfast and it very weak. Tasted watered down.
