I stayed with my fiancée and 4 friends. 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. Looking forward to go try the waterslide but was told it was closed due to "not enough lifeguards on duty". We've... More

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.

Our family spent two nights here recently....2nd stay at this hotel as we also stayed here just about 1 year ago. And this stay was improved. Upon check in, was acknowledged as a Plat member and offered 500 ihg pts, bar drink, or trail mix + water. Nice job desk staff. Not offered an upgrade as the hotel seemed booked... More

I don't know where to start. The bathroom in our room appeared to be unclean with random stains on the walls of who knows what. The bathtub wouldn't fill up because the bathtub stopped didn't work properly which made it hard for me to give my two children a bath after swimming. The pool was fun for the kids but... More

It started with our prepaid reservation...that went well. The young woman who checked us in was not very friendly. When we inquired about a roll away, as we had 1 additional child added to our swim/room package, we were told it would be another $20.00. Even with our members perk card? Yes. Okay , skip it. Well we should have... More

I stayed here with my two children for my younger son's birthday. We had a blast and honestly my only complaint would be with the life guard staff in the water park. The life guard staff appeared young, high school students perhaps, and they all hung out around the concession stand. My kids got the whistle blown at them for... More

I was at a function at the Holiday Inn in Owatonna this past weekend and the behavior of one of the employees was down right nasty. Friday afternoon and evening she patrolled the conference room over and over to make sure nobody brought in soda or drinks of any kind. Couldn't even have bottled water, let alone a snack! She...

I took my kids (6 and 10) here for an overnight getaway to enjoy some pool time. We arrived 5 hours early so that we could use the waterpark all day, and they let us check into our room at that time (almost unheard of at other hotels). The room was clean with comfortable beds.
