Super 8 Owatonna

Reviewed August 6, 2013

This motel smelled like smoke everywhere, despite the fact that it was supposed to be non-smoking. Maybe they had a fire? Rooms are very small. This place looks very old and is in need of some deep cleaning. I would not stay here again- better rooms can be found for less.

The shower was weird- it turned very hot then very cold no matter what it was set on. Not a good shower.

Continental breakfast was OK- Eggos, toast, and cereal.

The porno store next door is a clue. There were people hanging around in the parking lot so we worried about our car, but the guys just stayed in the back of the lot and did not mess with our car.

Room Tip: Upstairs was quiet.

We stayed here last year when we visiting friends and found it to be a great place. Very clean. The owners are wonderful and they have been refurbishing the motel for the last couple of years and it really shows. The beds are great, showers fine, clean through out. We never smelled smoke.

Stayed 4 nights. Nice room, comfy beds, AC was fantastic. Nice continental breakfast offered every day, free paper too. Staff was friendly, front desk always pleasant. Room was quiet. Will definitely stay there again. We had a first floor room, very seldom heard anything from the hall or upstairs. No traffic noise at all. Only drawback was the entry foyer to room hallway smelled like an ashtray.

Just a few comments. The staff couldn't have been nicer. Our room was clean. It was marked as a no smoking room but smelled of smoking. The hallway and especially the side entrance area smelled like the inside of an ashtray. Not good Super 8. The shower was another problem. One minute scalding hot and the next ice cold. Sort of a torture chamber. This hotel need updating if it wishes to compete with newer facilities. Most showers have a temperature controlled valve. This would correct this serious problem.

We had a quick one night stay on our way to N. Minnesota. Had previously stayed at the Comfort Inn and were really happy with it but was all booked up so for the cheaper price decided to try the Super 8. Was a little concerned when we pulled up and the hotel was locaetd right next to an adult boutique shop. Hotel was completely full when we checked in but we had a reservation so it was no problem. Got a non smoking room on the second floor. Reasonably clean room but it was older and definitely smelled like smoke. Pretty much the entire hotel smelled smokey. Room was pretty quiet though overnight. Went to the breakfast the next morning, definitely one of the lower end breakfasts I've ever had. Out of most things when I went there and even what they originally offered was nothing special, some frozen eggo waffles were the highlight. Juice from the machine tasted awful. Checked out early the next morning and finished our trip. Would I stay there again? Probably if I was alone, traveling across country and just wanted a quick cheap place to stay one night. I'd also probably go to McDonalds for breakfast. Unfortunately I had my family with me (wife, 2 kids) and I would definitely not stay there again with them. It is cheap but as other reviews have said you get what you pay for. I will pay a little more next time.

Had a good one night stay at a reasonable price. The young lady running the desk was pleasant and professional.
