“The name says it all...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

I had to stay the night in Owatonna on business and this place had the best price of those I checked ($55 total). The manager on duty / owner was very helpful and was nice enough to let me park my pickup and long trailer in his front parking lot. The place is not fancy. It IS located next to an Adult Superstore. There is some highway noise from I-35, but it wasn't anything that kept me awake. My room was clean and comfortable. The sheets on my bed were clean and I slept very well. There was a decent selection of cable channels and the wifi signal was strong and reliable all evening. It was nice having the fridge and microwave in the room. I left before the 7 a.m. start to breakfast so I can't comment on it. This is not a high end motel, but it's a very good place if you are looking for a clean, comfortable room at a reasonable price. I would stay here again without hesitation if I get back to the area. And as for the liquor store attached to the lobby...there have been many nights when I really wished that the motel I was checking into HAD a liquor store attached to it. It came in handy during my visit.

Why this hotel is categorized as a bed and breakfast, I'll never know. I mistakenly took one rave review and rolled the dice, to my dismay. The photo interested me as it looks like a quaint little beach house of a hotel, but if one were to expand that shot, they'd find the Adult Boutique right next door. If a hotel with a 100% legitimate liquor store in the lobby is what you're looking for, this is the place! If you'd like to place bets on where the dust is thicker, the hair dryer on the wall or the air conditioner vent, stop on by.
Thanks to Firefox, I am able to continue my review without rewriting it. My laptop plug refused to stay in the well-worn wall outlet and the battery had died overnight without my knowledge.
Yes, they have beds. Yes, they have something that could be called breakfast. Think Motel 6 with a refrigerator and microwave, tho. The shower barely allows one to turn around.
Free wi-fi. Clean sheets. And I'd choose "below average" as opposed to "poor" because they are giving a good effort. If you can't sleep over freeway noise, however, widen your search a bit.

To STAY!! I am a long-haul Truck Driver,and if I have to park m truck at the terminal 15 miles away,I always come here.
Nice,quiet,comfortable rooms,fridge,microwave,free wifi,and at a price that cannot be beat.
Perkins is right next door,Wal-Mart,a couple blocks,and also a couple of fast food restaurants close by..
The Staff is always very helpful,and I am glad I found this place.
