We stayed one night to visit friends in the area, and those the staff were very nice, it was clear they did not have a record of our reservation. They found a room for us, but we were put in a suite right over the bar where a very bad band played until 2 a.m.! We certainly will travel the... More

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. The beds had duvets so... More

I am with XSarge and muskrat2 - I don't know where Myrna stayed, but the Otter Supper Club and Lodge is not it. We had a family reunion July 28-29 in Henning. We stayed at the Otter 26 - 30th. We stayed in the room with the center balcony - we came back one night after our family reunion in... More

Even after remodeling the place, I would stay clear unless you have no other options. They need to hire a skilled maintenance person and qualified house staff. The rooms have A.C. but the entrance/lobby does not. They have live bands that play until 1:30 AM on Friday and Saturday. You can hear the music in your room as well. Then... More

A friend told me it's an excellant supper club with a so-so hotel. That about sums it up. When we first arrived we really were not impressed with the lobby area--dirty worn carpet and very hot. 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
