My 8-year-old daughter and I stayed at the Holiday Inn and Suites in Owatonna Thursday, July 10 while on a Laura Ingalls Wilder homesite tour. I was so glad I found this place! The room was fine. It was large, was clean, and had microwave and fridge. The beds were very comfortable. I'm picky about pillows, and I liked this...

We brought 3 grandkids, one mom and ourselves and stayed in a family suite. Our only issue there was one bathroom for 6 people! Since 7 waterpark passes are included so it is a pretty good value. The waterpark is fairly small, but that helped us keep track of the kids. They had no trouble keeping busy and having fun...

We stayed at this Holiday Inn while my son was participating in a local baseball tournament, and I found it to be a nice, quiet hotel. We chose it for the water park, and it was obviously a good choice for a group of 12-13 year old boys. I only peeked into the water park, but it had a slide...
