“Quiet hotel, even right across the lobby!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We got in late and were tired so I was a bit worried when we got the room right off the lobby. No worries were needed. The hotel was pretty darn quiet - good soundproofing.

Breakfast was decent as always. This one had cinnamon waffle mix which was extremely good. The breakfast lady made my son put on shoes which made him mad, but I kind of like. The pillows they offer now are perfect as is the comforter and towels. This one had the norms like fridge and coffee pot plus free wifi.

Bonus - a/c fan unit would stay on which I love when I am in a hotel instead of a unit that kicks on and off.

One think I don't like about Comfort Inns in general, the safe fee. Just ask to have it removed upon checking in. Overall, we would definitely go to this one again.

Service upon checkin was okay. The gal was on the phone taking a reservation which seemed to be causing her a bit of a hassle. While I totally understand that, it would have been nice had she just acknowledged me when I walked in.

The hotel was very nice and clean, service was wonderful especially the breakfast buffet with Dorene! She was on top of it, keeping everything clean and well stocked. Dorene also whipped us up some blue berry waffles that were delicious!
Also pet friendly! :)

My wife and I were traveling from Illinois to the Black Hills. We booked the Comfort Inn in Albert Lea because of TripAdvisor. Our room was great, bright, clean, double queen beds, microwave, refrigerator, Internet and breakfast all at a very reasonable price. Staff was very professional. 6 days later we headed back home and called ahead toConfort Inn at Albert Lea to make another reservation because of the wonderful experience we had on our way out.

Our room was very adequate for the one night that we stayed. We were told they had undergone renovations within the previous year. We were so awed by the "breakfast lady", Dorene. She interacted with all the guests, young and old alike, and made our morning happy. If we go that way again we will definitely stay there!

Hotel is in a good location right off I-35 with a restaurant next door. Nice pool and spa area, rooms are good size and the beds were great. Breakfast was okay not great, but for free it will do. Front desk staff was super friendly and helped us with all that we ask. Overall a good experience.

Comfort Inn from USA and Premier Inn appeal to the same market. They are both clean, comfortable and priced fairly cheaply. There is nothing grand but everything you need is there, and this particular Hotel is no different. We had a large, comfortable bed in a spacious room that was decorated in a particularly dark and dingy colour, but which was perfectly adequate for our needs. The hotel had a small swimming pool and a jacuzzi, which we used once and as is the norm with this chain, there is a free breakfast. Scrambled egg and bacon, with as many waffles and as much toast as you can eat. Cereal is available, as well as juice and coffee. We only ate here on one of our three days because we fancied a proper sit down breakfast with food served to your table, but this is more than satisfactory, especially when it is included in the price. We will continue to use this chain in future in America and would happily return to this particular hotel.

The front desk staff was helpful, the room was clean and large and the king size bed was very soft. Fridge and microwave in the room. Has a pool and a small hot tub. The best part was the hot breakfast. Cereal, fruit, juices, bacon, biscuits and gravy and waffles. Dorene, the chef was very friendly and helpful. She made my husband and I both waffles even though it was very near the close of the breakfast. She was very chatty with us during our breakfast which was nice.
