Have stayed here many times and always are amazed at how this hotel has everything a traveler needs. The breakfast is exceptional....thank you Kim. We travel often and every hotel has a "flaw" of some kind, not this one. Would highly recommend it.

We stayed at the Comfort Inn while recently visiting Albert Lea for a hockey tournament. Our room was very clean and the bedding and beds were extremely comfortable. A little wear was noticed in our room, but overall the hotel was well maintained. The party room was nice for our hockey team to meet in and the pool was fun...

The property is conveniently located just off the I35 heading north to Minneapolis-St Paul or south to Des Moines Iowa. It's about 5 minutes' drive to downtown Albert Lea and there are a number of eating places, both right beside the hotel as well as within a few minutes' drive. The hotel itself is a little old-fashioned but not worn;...

Thanks for the great review! This was so well written and thought out. I love reviews like yours. I appreciate the kind words and the constructive ideas. I think you are right about the fitness room.

Stayed at the Comfort Inn on our way home from Houston. The staff was very friendly and check-in and check-out went smoothly. The rooms are small including the bathroom but just for a place to sleep it works. The room could of been cleaner as there were crumbs around and behind the nightstand. The breakfast is your average hotel breakfast,...
