The Holiday Inn in Owtonna is a greatplac for kid with an indoor water park. Conveniently located. Outlet mall located nearby. The Mayo is about 45 minutes away and Minneapolis/St.Paul is about 1 hr. away.

My room was ok, pretty standard. My problem was at the pool. A guest there was shaving the dead skin off of her feet with a pedicure razor and throwing it on the pool deck.

I stayed with my fiancée and 4 friends.

Stayed at hotel for a week and we repeatedly had to ask for the room to be cleaned and even when asked, it wasn't always done. The restaurant at the hotel is less than average with food that doesn't taste good and cheap salads.

Our family spent two nights here recently....2nd stay at this hotel as we also stayed here just about 1 year ago. And this stay was improved.

I don't know where to start. The bathroom in our room appeared to be unclean with random stains on the walls of who knows what. The bathtub wouldn't fill up because the bathtub stopped didn't work properly which made it hard for me to give my two children a bath after swimming. The pool was fun for the kids but...

It started with our prepaid reservation...that went well. The young woman who checked us in was not very friendly.

I stayed here with my two children for my younger son's birthday. We had a blast and honestly my only complaint would be with the life guard staff in the water park.
