I've stayed at this hotel before and have always been happy with it. The rooms are clean, bed is comfortable, and the pillows awesome. Breakfast is included with the stay and is buffet-style, it's not an awesome offering of food, but is certainly very acceptable.

I was on my way to St Paul, MN on business and due to an almost complete sell-out of hotels in the city, I decided to stop in Owatonna. The hotel is right next door to the huge Cabella's store so you can't miss it. Check in was a breeze. The room was in good condition and everything worked as... More

“This is a Country Inn & Suites. There really aren't any bad rooms that we've ever had. The next night we stayed at one in Chanhassen, MN and one of our room walls was the back of the elevator. Never heard a thing.”
