Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by roadman14 No Sign - Water Stinks
As a business traveler my stays are a IHG when I can. This Albert Lea property was very disappointing.
1) 3 attempts to find the proper road leading to hotel. No signage. Very dark surroundings, feeling like entering the Bates Hotel!
2) The water sinks! Could not wash my face without having a sulfur residue smell. Could not even think of taking a shower in that!. Get a reverse osmosis filter system to take it OUT!
I will not stay at this property again. That's too bad since I travel through there regularly.

Beds are comfortable, the help is friendly. I find price, although in line with similar hotels, is a little expensive.
The breakfast is fairly good, much better than cheaper hotels.
This particular Holiday Inn Express has a smell of sulfur in the water from the sink, I would be sure to have some bottled water to drink.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by vince1273 Make sure you verify your reservation ahead of time.
I will keep this short.. having been the only member of our party that verified our reservation we were lucky enough to get a double room. Two other families were left with king rooms, rollaways, floors, no towels and sheets. It made a family event very stressful. Not to mention broken whirlpool, broken breakfast options (pancakes) and as always when traveling in MN, make sure you ask how many youth hockey teams are staying. I would definitely would have considered another option even if it cost more. Definitely not worth the money. Couldn't leave fast enough.
