We had driven lots of hours and needed a place to stop. Saw this and took it. The room itself was pretty clean. The tub and bathroom floor needed to be scrubbed. We have stayed in a couple worse places than this one. The price was cheep and we were tired. The couple who run the motel are very nice....

Very clean rooms with all the amenities you would need. Comfortable bed, refrigerator, microwave. Super helpful owner and staff. Very friendly! Great price and very quiet motel. Smaller motel, which made it very cozy. We will definitely stay there again when we pass through Minnesota!

Typical of small town old-fashioned drive in motel. Not too clean, but not too bad. Updates have been done: newer faux marble vanity top, one-piece tub-shower enclosure (no mold or mildew), newer roof. I found the 3-ft by 3-ft wooden side table convenient. The TV was wall-mounted, so the full 6-ft length of the low dresser top was available so...

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.

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...
