Came here for Heartbreak Hotel, had a wonderful time. The staff was hard working, polite and helpful, our room was large and clean, and the food in the restaurant was delicious. I would definitely come back if another event is held here.

These reviews don't lie. I am honestly surprised this place is allowed to stay in business. Honestly don't think they change the sheets or bedding either or washed them for that matter. Found dirty socks under a chair. There were ceiling particles all over in the hallway. The pool's ceiling had mold and water damage every where. Hotel staff talked...

I recently attended an indoor festival at this hotel and hope it becomes a regular thing. This hotel is so huge I almost couldn't find my room (not in a lack of signs way but in a this hotel is huge way)...the event room is plenty big, the courtyard is easy to get to from anywhere and has a fire...

I was very impressed with the kindness and the efficiency of the staff and the fact that they cared enough to make sure that I got what I needed while I was there made me a fan. If your room does not have what you need all you have to do is ask. They are some of the sweetest people...

Hotel was nice and staff was helpful and friendly. Close to eating places. Had a nice breakfast. We will stay here again. Close to the casinos. Also it is close to some real nice lakes. We only stayed one night but it was nice

We were suppose to stay in this hotel for 2 nights. We ended up staying only 1 night due to allergies. This hotel smells of mold and smoke. The hotel was very dirty. The pool was a mucky green color. We would not let our kids swim in it. After a nights "rest" in this hotel we were so congested...

We just returned home after spending a weekend in Alberta Lea MN. Don't let the photos fool you on their website. This place is very old, smelly, rooms are jam packed with way too much furniture that is old, bathroom is so small you can't shut the door and be sitting on the toilet. Cold continental breakfast was a joke,...

The stay wasn't too bad. They certainly didn't go out of their way. The breakfast was laughable. Very little and mostly old stuff they got cheap. The worst was the last day. The water went off to the motel. The lady at the gas station told us that it happens from time to time because they don't pay the water...

Be aware!!!! Not at all a place to stay! Found a roach in our room and one in the bar. Had a nice time in the bar, but the waitresses had to go smoke so often they forgot to wait on tables that came in.

This place is a total dump, we drove across country, staying at several hotels. This is the worst place ever ! Rooms stunk ! Seriously, they really stunk ! We refused the first room we were given, then got what they told us was an upgrade. The upgraded room was nearly as bad but it was raining heavy outside so...
