At Christmas time, my family stayed at this Holiday Inn Express after a white-knuckle drive over ice-covered Interstate 90 from Wisconsin. We were extremely pleased with accommodations, staying in a nicely-appointed two queen bedroom. Rooms, hallways, and public areas were very clean, and employees seemed to take great pride in their maintenance. Complimentary breakfast was the usual HIE fare, but...

We travel with our 4 grandkids a lot and always try to stay at a Holiday Inn Express. They have the perfect size room for us and we all are comfortable. This hotel is very new, clean and well cared for. The breakfast was delicious and for 6 of us it is worth staying here. The pool is small and...

Pulled in here on an icy afternoon and this HIE did not disappoint! From the moment we arrived with cookies at the desk to the coffee out the door the next morning, this is a great place to stay! Room was great, beds comfy, and bathroom clean, we just hunkered down for the night. Breakfast was standard fare, but just...

We were very pleased with our one-night stay here. Facility was clean and well maintained, and breakfast was good, although I was disappointed that they were out of their signature cinnamon rolls very early and I was unable to have any. Check-in staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel is basically at the end of the road, but with a...

Employees have always been friendly and know how to smile, but some money needs to be spent on bedding and towels. I can't stand it when bedding is so worn you can see thru it or when towels are soiled/stained; had both my last stay here. Crisp sheets should be the norm not the exception, seems like IHG doesn't know...

This place is what you want in an overnight stay at a Holiday Inn Express - no surprises. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and we enjoyed a nice quiet night. The Breakfast was the usual fare, and the food was hot. I would have no qualms about stay there again when we pass through town. And I...

This is a newer Holiday Inn, very nice, clean, nice furnishings, efficient check in, comfortable beds and pillows, spacious bathroom....those are the important elements of a nice hotel. There was also a nice pool but we did not use it. Now for the negatives (which may sound petty but when staying at a "nicer" hotel, you expect some basics). The...

Think it is the newest hotel in Albert Lea. Room was quiet, clean and about the right size. One slow elevator to serve 3 floors. Located next to a cornfield which was fine with me. There is a fast food place across the road. Seems like there were always warm cookies at the front desk. Breakfast was way above average...

Loved how spacious the room and bathroom was. Every person we came across was nice. Bed was awesome, and breakfast was great even had one of the ladies come up and offer more coffee. Great location easy access to I35 and I90.

We passed thru the area and needed a stay for the night. No regrets here! It is a nice, quiet hotel. It appears to be newer. The rooms are plenty big and comfortable and the breakfast couldn't be better! Yes, we would come back.
