Staff was top notch and very friendly. Priced very reasonable for what this hotel has to offer. On site restaurant and lounge is also great.

We stayed here over a weekend. The hotel and room were super clean. We tried to check in early but we couldn't check in until 4 due to other events at the hotel which was a bummer because my son needed to get ready to play hockey in Faribault and we needed to change clothes. The water park was ok....seemed... More

Great clean place with comfortable bed! Air worked great. Low shower pressure. Wrist bands for water park were included and kids ate free for supper and breakfast. Kid pool was very nice and warm for the little ones and the slides were great.

The Holiday Inn in Owtonna is a greatplac for kid with an indoor water park. Conveniently located. Outlet mall located nearby. The Mayo is about 45 minutes away and Minneapolis/St.Paul is about 1 hr. away.

My room was ok, pretty standard. My problem was at the pool. A guest there was shaving the dead skin off of her feet with a pedicure razor and throwing it on the pool deck. When I brought this to the attention of the pool staff and later the management nothing was done. I was told by management that there... More

The family suite was awesome, the restaurant was nice, server at the restaurant was amazing (breanne i think was the name?), arcade was fun, but the water park could've been better.

Stayed at hotel for a week and we repeatedly had to ask for the room to be cleaned and even when asked, it wasn't always done. The restaurant at the hotel is less than average with food that doesn't taste good and cheap salads.
