This is as good a hotel as you could expect to find in a city this size. The facilities are clean and the rooms are comfortable. However, it is not always quiet. On a Saturday night stay, we were awakened by loud drunks several times in the wee hours. Hopefully, other nights of the week are more blissful.

This is our 2nd stay at this hotel & we always enjoy it. From the nice pool/hot tub area, beautiful rooms, wonderful white water collection for soaps and lotion in the bathroom, nice staff, great continental breakfast (which is always a huge benefit!) & clean rooms. I think we went to sleep around 11pm on that Saturday night, there was...

Good room, nice and clean with a Good shower. We felt the price was very fair. The staff and the hotel and the breakfast room were very friendly and helpful. The coffee and the waffle was good but we felt like the eggs and ham were dry and not the best ever. The oatmeal was nice and hot but felt...

Excellent place to stay! The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and they have a great complimentary breakfast. Staff is friendly as well. Convenient location right off the highway and rooms are quiet.

We have stayed at this inn three times during the busy Steel County Fair weekend. They do a great job with friendly staff, clean rooms and a great free breakfast. I would recommend the hotel to couples and families.

This was the second year that we stayed at the Country Inn & Suites, Owatonna, MN. We have been very pleased. I slept better than at home. As someone else has said: the staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the breakfasts; they had different hot breakfasts each day we were there. There are many restaurants within walking distance and...

We arrived about 10 pm, were given a room upgrade with welcome gift as Club Carlson members, found a book from the lending library, easily hooked up to wifi in the room and awakened to a warm breakfast of oatmeal which was good but runny.

Very nice, clean and well positioned little hotel. Not much for breakfast, but for a business guy - OK. We took family there, so ended up eating breakfast elsewhere, but we are picky. Friendly staff, nice facilities (pool, gym, etc). Would certainly stay there again.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The hot breakfast was a nice touch although the quality was just a bit less than comparable places. The decor was somewhat dated, but the room was very comfortable. Wi-fi was free and we were able to connect without any problems, but it was rather slow.
