I had already made reservation at the Best Western at Albert Lea to break up a ten hour drive home instead of doing it in one day. I was glad I did as my 5 hour trip to Albert Lea turned into an 8 hour trip due to a snowstorm. The room was very clean, the bed comfortable and the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

We rented two rooms for 3 nights here during a blizzard. The maintenance man was busy keeping the snow cleaned up and salting the entryway. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Beds were comfy, the shower was good and hot, and the pool was really warm. The exercise facility had a nice treadmill. The breakfast was fantastic! Great mix...

My stay at the Best Western was very good. Great staff and room. Arrived late at night and the staff was helpful and had all check in paper work ready so I could get to my room quickly! Check out was quick and easy. Was easy to locate along the interstate.

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.
