We enjoyed our stay. All the hotel, restaurant, and water park staff were very friendly and courteous. The slides were perfect for our 6 year old who loved every minute. We felt like the hotel was very nice at one time, but more maintenance could be kept up on. The elevator on one side of the hotel was not operational....

Hello fellow travelers, stayed here twice and both times was happy with service and accommodations. They have a restaurant / bar directly on Hotel. Plus other eateries across the street. Plenty of parker for cars or BIG rigs. Also has water park for family fun.

We stayed one evening on a trip from ND to IA. My children loved the 2 waterslides. They had single or double tubes and it was a really fun time for kids aged 4 and 8. There is also a splash pad area and a traditional pool with basketball hoops in it.

On a recent business trip I stayed at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites. It is on my companies' preferred hotel list. Clean, quiet comfortable rooms. The front desk clerks were friendly and helpful. I know they have a pool but did not have time to swim

Took the family up for an overnight on a Thursday. Checked in at 4, room was clean and up to date. The water park area was nice, clean and staffed. Spa jets were not working. Fitness center is what you would expect. Overall a nice place to stay with a friendly staff.

Took daughter, son-in-law and two grandkids (6, 9) to the county fair and stayed at the Holiday Inn. The suite was spacious (not much of a view, but that's not what we were there for. The water park was just great for the kids. We were too tired to leave the hotel to eat and fortunately they had a very...

This is a nice hotel with typical rooms and a nice small water park. Deepest water in the park is only 4ft I believe, so great for families. Two water slides, one single person slide and one tube slide with up to two people. My husband and one year old went down the tube slide multiple times. I was somewhat...

We travel every year to WI for Christmas. This year the weather was predicted to be bad so we left on a Thursday at 8:45 pm and drove as far as we could stay awake for. This brought us to Owatonna. We took our chances with the Holiday Inn. Check in was easy with a friendly staff person at 11:30...

Came here with a large group and my bill was 20 more than the standard price. Kindly asked the manager to correct the bill and they refused. Kids didn't swim much because it was too cold. They didn't have the double bed rooms when we arrived so we had to take a single bed room with pull out couch bed....

The hotel is located right off the interstate, the staff has been very nice and accommodating. I'm here for 2 weeks on business and I'm enjoying the restaurant attached to the hotel.
