    Very nice and the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were clean and the towels and sheets smelled clean and fresh. The breakfast was very good and had a big variety of items to choose. Very friendly staff.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    This hotel was remodeled since our last stay here. They did a wonderful job! Beds are very comfortable, carpeting has been replaced by wood floors in most areas which makes for a much cleaner environment. Breakfast is not fancy, but is very good and you won't be hungry afterwards. We travel quite a bit and have found this hotel to be a great value for our money. Reasonably priced. Nice amenities. EXCELLENT customer service!! We have stayed here before and will stay here again while visiting family in Alexandria. Good location near highway, stores and restaurants. They are the best!

    « Great place to rest your head »

    We only stayed one night for a job in Alexandria. First of all our check on was fast and courteous with delicious cookies for guest. Walking down the hall where it was clean and smelled like fresh Linnin in the dryer. Walked into the room and to my surprise the floors where a fo hardwood looking vinyl. More hotels should put that type of flooring down, makes me feel more comfortable that there isn't crud ground into carpet and I think it makes the rooms smell better. Beds were very comfortable to the point of not wanting to get out of them. Tv was easy to use with a guide. Refrigerator without freezer and microwave in the rooms. Shower was good, hot and actually had a good stream. All in all the rooms where great. Now as for breakfast it's hot and plentiful, and a great start to the day with pancakes, cereal, biscuits and sausage gravy, sausage patties and some scrambled eggs and much more. Good job Best Western and who ever owns and runs that hotel like it should be run

    « Updated Clean Hotel »

    Very comfortable bed, clean and updated room, close to restaurants, gas stations and the interstate. Room was small if I had planned on staying for an extended period, but I think most people would not be bothered by the size. Friendly staff. Decent breakfast.

    « Typical Best Western stay »

    This hotel is a typical Best Western. It is right off of the freeway and has plenty of parking. The lobby is small, and the elevator is not near the lobby (it is all the way down the hallway of first floor rooms). Hotel offers free Wi-Fi, and the service was good. Room comes with standard amenities (coffee maker, fridge, TV) and offers shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, lotion, and makeup remover. Everything worked as expected. Breakfast offerings include hot and cold food items (eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, pastries, etc.). To me, the eggs and sausages were a little dry but overall good breakfast selection. The price per night for this hotel felt a little expensive for the area, but I understand that there is a decent amount of competition for this freeway stop town.

    « Nice hotel »

    Been to Alexandria before. This is a nice place. Comfortable, easy location. Clean room, no hassle check in check out. Breakfast is standard fare. Ok nothing special but acceptable. Restaurants nearby are good. Easy access to the freeway.

    « nice surprises »

    You can't go wrong staying here. If you like a pool, this one is great with an oversized whirlpool. And there is a great outdoor sitting area next to the pool. The breakfast was fantastic with great variety. In addition to the normal waffle maker, there was a pancake maker...no pouring of batter here though....all automatic. And sugar free syrup that we didn't have to ask for. The furnishings were nice, great mattress, plenty of towels, nice shower, frig in the room. My only suggestions are to replace the pillows with softer ones. Our room was extremely clean, which we really appreciated. Also a very good price....

    The hotel was clean, staff was very helpful, the price was extremely reasonable and a great location. I would recommend this hotel if you are visiting Alexandria area. There are great restaurants near by and shopping.

    « Decent Updated Rooms »

    This hotel is right off the freeway, but the closest exit and bridge is all under construction, so it may be a bit tricky getting to its otherwise convenient location. The hotel is located right next to a shopping area that has a Walmart, Culver's, as well as other fast-food, and convenient gas stations. The hotel itself has updated rooms, but the lobby is in need of an update which is suppose to happen starting this August. Guests may be a bit concerned with how their rooms will be when they see the bucket in the lobby catching the above air conditioner's condensation, but I can assure you my room was nice. My room was very clean and had a comfortable king bed. My bed was comfortable and I slept well, but my pillows, while soft, were a little bit lumpy.The sink in the room is separate from the toilet and shower. I also had a refrigerator which worked nicely. The hotel provides a breakfast and has a pool, but I didn't have the time to try either of them out. The attendant at the desk is tasked with other things, so they may not be at the desk when you arrive. They have instructions there to use the phone to page the attendant. While I didn't have much delay having to page the attendant, it was a little inconvenient to have to go through the motions to page someone; especially when exhausted from traveling all day.

    « Average hotel for price »

    Clean hotel and rooms were clean but kinda crowded, no internet connections would work with the hotels password - small crowded breakfast area, average pool and hot tub - close to a variety of restaurants and lots of shopping though, hotel is pretty much in the center and you can walk to stores and about 8 restaurants.

    « Exceptional Property »

    Best Western did excellent job in converting a distressed property into the Best Western brand. What was a formerly a cut rate, run down and worn motel has now been upgraded to a significant Best Western branded hotel with exceptional service and quality staff.

    I have never had such an awful experience at a hotel! First of all, we laid down to sleep, and the comforter was dirty with a smear of something. (?). I can deal with that, just had it replaced. The sink was 95% clogged, so it took minutes to drain. The shower/tub had hair in it from the previous guests. The room smelled so musty that I actually thought about running to Walmart to grab some Lysol! Finally, the day after check in, I found old, dried, moldy dog poop under the desk. This I cannot deal with. We checked out early and didn't sleep a wink! Yuk, yuk, yuk!

    « Typical Hotel »

    Nothing wrong with this hotel, nothing spectacular either. The rooms are of average size. The furniture is large making the ease of movement in the room uncomfortable. We did not try the breakfast, so I'm not able to comment on it.

    « Great room, modern! »

    Loved having no carpet, floor was modern, bed linens were very lovely, plenty of towels. Great tv with a clean remote ready to use. Thanks for having a tv channel listing in the room as well! I still like having a desk and a chair in the room, so thank you BW!

    « Maybe not the best »

    This Best Western has been upgraded but like many motels upgrades help but if the bones of the building are weak? The bath/toilet room was so small that a 300 pounder wouldn't fit. A little noisy from neighbours. The buffet was the standard BW fare. We are on a Road Trip and this was our 5th Best Western breakfast...it becomes tedious. Other than that quibble this is an average three star.

    « waiting for bonus credit gift card »

    Great value I should receive my $50.00 gift card soon. Then on the road again... The only issue was a slight odour in the room but could live with it other than that a great stay and good value... Again waiting for my gift card.

    Check-in very efficient. Room clean and very comfortable. Impressed with the laminate floors. Felt very clean. Great amenities in room. Bed very comfortable. (I wish I had checked the brand of the mattress!) Breakfast ample and good. Staff very helpful at directions, etc.

    We were in town for two nights for the Mn High School State Trap Championship. Even though the hotel was full, we found it to be very quiet. The room was clean and there was adequate space for all of our gear. Beds were comfortable. My only complaint was the lack of space in the breakfast area. We will stay here again.

    « Very good for passing through »

    We stayed here en route to Minneapolis. Easy location off the Interstate. Well landscaped and kept property. Next door is a Walmart if you need travel supplies/snacks. Room was clean and average. Breakfast was well stocked and staff was friendly. We didn't swim but the pool area looked spacious and featured a nice outdoor patio area.

    « Great start »

    This is a very clean, friendly place to stay. Close to Walmart, restaurants and other attractions. We were in town for a Love & Respect conference. There was hardly anybody there, that we could see, when we checked in. But that night after the conference, there was a long line of people looking for a room. Certainly glad we made our reservation. The pool area and hot tub were great. The whole place was neat and clean. The staff very friendly. Even with all the people, it was quiet. The only negative was the size of the parking lot. It didn't seem like there was even one spot for each room. But otherwise, wonderful.

    « Lost reservation, Last minute save »

    Even though they couldn't find my reservation. I had the printed out confirmation and they gave me a room. The rest of the stay was good. The lot was full when we got in Sat. night, but there was still parking along the edge. We never lacked for anything and encountered no issues while staying there.

    « Great place to stay »

    I love staying here. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The beds are better than what I have at home so I always sleep great, no lumps or bumps! It is always clean there too, you can tell staff do all they can to make your stay comfortable. The pool/hot tub area is great too. Both are roomy enough to hold multiple people with out being crowded. The fitness center is a nice addition too! The breakfast provided in the morning always has a good variety as well, everything from waffles to cereal, to bagels and rolls, and different yogurts and granola's. Their coffee is really good too. We love staying there when we visit family in and around Alexandria, and don't really even consider any of the other places in town anymore.

    « My Stay In Alexandria »

    The new wooden floors in this motel are great. Also love the new closet door. Excellent choice of items at breakfast bar. If you love waffles they have whip cream, strawberries, and chocolate chips to smother it with. Also love the breakfast sausage and biscuits in gravy. I stay here every week for business and would recommend this motel to everyone that I know. The Best Western Rewards program is one of the best I have belonged too.

    « Great Place to Stay! »

    Bare floors in rooms was different, used to carpeting but didn't really matter to us. Close to lots of stores and eating places. Pool was warm and whirlpool was great. Would definately stay here again if in the area!

    « Birthday Party Pool Fun. »

    We booked a couple rooms last weekend for a neighbor's son's birthday gathering. The hotel staff were wonderful to deal with. They offered the breakfast room for the group to have the birthday cake and gift celebration (at no extra charge) then after our children all went swimming as we hung out at the pool. The desk clerk (Heather) was incredibly helpful by asking several times if there was anything we needed to make our stay more enjoyable. No question this was first rate service! The rooms were nice and clean as well as comfortable. We will enjoy another visit here soon.

    « Good Value »

    Nice clean and comfortable. Just what the doctor ordered after an 9 hour drive on the Interstate. The hotel is located within a shopping centre and only a few yards off the Interstate. All conviniences are only a few yards away. (Stores, Gas-station, Restaurants.)

    « Bathroom needs major improvements. »

    Overall this is a nice, clean hotel with one of the best breakfast buffets. The bathroom is very tiny. The shower head was positioned so high up that the water almost hit the other side of the shower. Unfortunately, there is no way to adjust the shower head up or down, so one is stuck having a very unpleasant shower experience. The beds are comfortable and room is clean. I would have rated higher if not for the strange shower and size of the bathroom.

    « Good stay »

    This Best Western in Alexandria was a convenient stay with easy access to and from the freeway. The room was clean and comfortable, and the price was reasonable. It's location near eating establishments was also convenient. The breakfast was on par with other Best Westerns - very acceptable.

    « Family visit »

    We needed extra beds for visiting family members so picked this hotel. The rooms were consistent with what you would expect. Liked having a fridge and microwave in the room. I had two minor complaints, one was that I couldn't find a comfortable pillow for myself out of the four on the bed. The other complaint was that the continental breakfast on Sunday was poorly supervised, with food running low and out without being replenished in a timely manner.

    Stayed here overnight with my little family. Everything was quite clean and everyone was friendly. Pool room was a little dark, but still nice for our little kids to burn some energy before bed. Good breakfast with a few hot options.

    The breakfast buffet had good selection and fresh. Room was clean and comfortable. Only about a block from Interstate 94, but didn't hear any truck traffic. Interior decor looked fresh and new. Tile floor in the bathroom needed some maintenance.

    This was a great hotel to stay at. It was really nice. Staff very helpful and pleasant. The motel was very nice and clean. They welcome pets too. It was easy to find. It was quiet. Everything seemed pretty new. The breakfast was good too.

    « Convenient Location »

    We were in this hotel for two nights for a family reunion. It was pretty typical of most motels in this chain. The breakfast room was minuscule with the rudest attendant on duty. She may have a very hard life but really shouldn't take it out on the guest. We moved a chair to our tiny table to squeeze in a 5th person, and she made gestures and grimacing faces until we'd returned it to its original spot. Luckily neither the food nor the ambiance of the room encouraged us to stay a second longer than necessary. Our room was comfortable enough, but we had to turn off the AC to avoid the "sleeping in the jetway" effect. Everything in the bathroom worked, and there was plenty of hot water with good water pressure, so it could have been a lot worse.

    « Ok place to rest our head »

    We were just traveling thru and needed a place to stay for the night. I was happy they had a fitness room but it didn't open until 8am so that didn't help me when I was hoping to be back on the road at this time. The room was ok. Beds were comfortable. The room was dirty but it didn't feel clean either. Hard to explain. The bathroom was really small. The sink and mirror was in the room right as you walk in the door and the toilet and tub are behind a door across from the sink. The tub drained really slow and it was like showering in the dark as the light was not very bright at all. The continental breakfast sounded really good. My husband had the biscuits and gravy and he wasn't very impressed. My daughter was really impressed with their cinnamon rolls and I thought their coffee was delicious. Overall... it was an ok place to rest our heads for the night.

    « Some good stuff, some work to do. »

    This stay at the BW Alexandria more up than down. The evening front desk staff was courteous. Check-in was quick. The pool was nice and warm. Its depth is suitable for swimming, but is limited for small children. The hot tub looked dark and unappealing. Our room had very soft beds - if you like that. Definitely on the plus side, the shower head in the bathtub was up nice and high - high enough that someone tall doesn't need to bend down to get their hair wet!! Otherwise, the room left some room for improvement - clearly the vacuum cleaner had not gone further than the bed skirt (i.e., fries and animal cracker pieces under the bed). And the closet door needed maintenance, as it kept coming off its track. Outdoors there is a nice concrete picnic table where we enjoyed our breakfast. All in all, this turns out to be a mixed review. The sub-part stuff can be quite easily addressed.
