The check-in clerk read comment about the noisiness of room 115, So she moved me to a different room so I wouldn't experience that problem. The entire staff was friendly and the room was great. I missed breakfast but the desk clerk said I could take some yogurt and cereal. It snowed while I was there and the parking lot...

We stayed at this location due to the fact that my wife is allergic to my sister's cats. The room was clean and the property was appropriate for the rate. The breakfast is what we expected for this range of hotel.

I was visiting family for the holidays who live in the area. There were too many people, so my niece and I decided we would be more comfortable in a hotel. There were limited choices in the area. The positive: the breakfast was decent and the woman setting it up in the morning was very friendly. The noise from the...

My husband and I were moving across the state and decided to stop off in Albert Lea for the night. The bed was soooo comfy, the temp in the room was perfect and so was the bath and bathroom. The street outside was a little noisy. Breakfast was awesome for a continental breakfast. Eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, toast,...

Because of some bad weather forecast for this area, we spent the night at the Best Western Plus in Albert Lea last night. It turned into a nice surprise. I'd checked the hotel out on the web before calling. The person who answered quoted me a price and I told her there was a lower price on the web. She...

We checked into this hotel on a night when it was clearly not fully booked. There were many vacant rooms, and yet the hotel put us in a room directly over the front entrance to the hotel. When we opened our window, we looked at a wall of shingles from the roof of the entryway directly below us. When I...

We are very sorry about the experience you had at our hotel. This is not a normal stay at our property. We normally try to rent these rooms very last due to the construction of the property. We only have very few room types in the hotel. However, I strongly agree about changing into a new room type right away...
