Country Inn & Suites By Carlson Owatonna

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I had prepaid for our hotel stay and still had to pay another $50 deposit that I would not get back for 3-5 days after our stay. I was not at all happy about this!!! The hotel itself was clean and well kept and the amenities we used were great. Continental breakfast had a good assortment.

It was a quiet hotel & had a nice breakfast. The pool was small & 3 feet deep. The cleaning staff seems lazy. The room smelled of dust--you could see where staff dusts around lamps & tv. Dust was thick and visible on picture frames & dresser edges/baseboards. The vacuuming wasn't any better--the staff doesn't move furniture to vacuum under tables etc. nor did they vacuum the hallways during the 3 days we stayed.

I was in and out. Went for work and this was an excellent place to hang my hat.

No problems. All was good based on pricing and the location. Nice lobby with open fire, really nice during the winter.

They made us feel really nice. They helped us in anyway they could. Let us check in 4 hours early. Helped us with things we forgot as far as floaties for the pool, ect. Great Breakfast!!

The hotel was easy to find. It was quiet and very peaceful to get the rest needed for the next days journey. The breakfast provided enough variety for everyone to enjoy. The front desk even called shortly after checking in to assure the room was to our satisfaction and to welcome us. Nice touch.

clean and comfortable. Had a nice stay. the holel is easy to fine.

Room was clean, close to grandmas, free breakfast, would stay again. Kinda pricey for Owatonna but nice hotel!

We stopped on our way back to ND from Illinois. Rooms were great, staff was excellent, breakfast was delicious. Couldn't ask for more.

Nice, quiet comfortable room. The bed comforters were heavy and hot. The alternative is just a sheet.

I was in town for a RC event and wanted a nice place to stay. The A/C was a rockstar, I actually had to turn it down it worked so well.

Very relaxing & comfortable after a long days travel. We will definitely stay at another Country Inn & Suites!

Passing through on our way to a final destination. Good room, good service and pleasant people to deal with. It appears that the hotel has been completely refreshed from the time we stayed there in 2009.

Management slow, Room=bowling alley, hot tub=luke warm. breakfast=great. cookies-good. heat/ac system= airplane engine.

Nice place, good people! Remember it is a non_smoking facility...

we had a very relaxing time and a good nights sleep!

Review comment responded on Apr 4, 2017

Dear Guest, Thank you for reviewing the Country Inn & Suites Owatonna. I'm pleased you enjoyed our quiet location and complimentary breakfast. I'm very sorry that the cleanliness of our hotel was concerning to you. As you probably noticed we are currently under renovation. While we are working hard to keep it from interfering with our guests, the dust is harder to control. My team has put forth an extra effort to keep up with it, and I apologize that in this case, it seemed that we were falling behind. I will be sharing your comments with my staff to ensure that others don't feel the same way. I hope we will be able to host you again the next time you are in the area. Sincerely, Kelly B. General Manager
