Was on my way to Northern Minnesota after leaving Tulsa and needed a simple, no frills, low cost place. I love old pull up to the door motels. It's just easier to get stuff to the room and stuff you "forgot" out of the car. I found this place to be just fine. Wasn't the best but lord it certainly... More

The room was clean, great price and the owners were great. Flat screen tv, fridge and great internet access. I would stay again at this hotel. From the outside it is an older hotel but the inside is wonderful.

Older style motel located off the Interstate, south of downtown Owatonna. Near Cabellas and an Outlet Mall, this inexpensive motel includes a small breakfast in the cost of your room. Only thing I wished for was a hair dryer. Room did contain a microwave and mini-fridge.

I woke up in the morning of July 26th to find bed bugs in both of the beds and my grandson had been bitten. I notified the manager and he asked where we stayed before his motel. I said HOME. He stripped the beds and gave me a small refund. The air conditioner was loud.

I had to pay a little bit more for my stay this time but it was worth it. I had clean room and smelled fresh. My bed was like sleeping on a cloud and they remodeled the room I was in. Micro and Fridge Flat Screen TV with HD and new vanity top on the sink and do not forget... More

The innkeepers are very friendly people. The motel is easy to find, it's very easy to park, and close to a Hy-Vee grocery/gas station and restaurants. The price was great. They like dogs, and had a small fee for my Akita, which was no problem. The room was comfortable and had fridge, microwave, good TV, and wi-fi. I'd stay here... More

Very clean and newly painted room that I was in. Everything worked, had a nice wall mounted 32 inch LCD television. Plenty of room inside with new furniture . The outside doesn't look like much, as it is an older hotel. But is in good shape on the inside, I think it was a very good value for your money

I helped a family in need and got them a room at this hotel. The owner was very accommodating and friendly. Room was clean even if it was outdated. Free breakfast in the morning. If you need a place to crash and dont want to spend around $100.00 a night. This is the place to stay.
