We stayed here with a coupon because we like to be adventurous. I have been by here a few times before so I knew it wouldn't be anything great, but I was pleasantly surprised by the room as it had been remodeled fairly recently and it was clean which were two things I didn't expect.

We had to go into the supper club to register, but the staff was very helpful and it went smoothly. Once in the room,... More

The Otter Lodge (a small 15-20 room hotel) is in a great location right off HWY 78 in Ottertail, MN. I have been in the Lake Ottertail region several times and even eaten at The Otter but never knew it had hotel rooms! The rooms are basic, but comfortable (and some were being updated). The best part about The Otter... More
