In January 2013 the Spring Valley Inn & Suites began operating under new ownership. The new owners are Munish and Raj Kaushal. Munish and his wife Raj have two boys, Aryan, age 4, and Arav, age 3.

Munish stated they like the Spring Valley area and the people in the community are “very nice” which has made them feel welcomed since they moved to town. The couple did some minor improvements on the hotel after purchasing it including painting in certain areas.

The Spring Valley Inn & Suites has 38 rooms for guests and Munish says they have “a lot of extra rollaway beds” so they can accommodate their guests as needed. In addition to standard rooms Jacuzzi Suites are available with a king bed, sofa/hide-a-bed, microwave and mini-fridge. According to the website for Spring Valley Inn & Suites, www.springvalleyinnsuites.com, other amenities include free enhanced breakfast, Cable TV, guest laundry room, and free wireless internet access, among others. Additionally, according to the website, the business has two computers and a copy machine available for use.

The lobby area of the Spring Valley Inn & Suites is very large and relaxing with comfortable furniture and a fireplace. There is also a meeting room available for up to 25 people. Munish stated he is happy to have many fine businesses close to the hotel for his guests including the “A & W Drive-In right across the street” which is convenient for persons staying at the hotel.

When asked why he and his wife wanted to purchase the Spring Valley Inn & Suites, Munish stated “expansion” as the reason. This is the second hotel the couple has purchased. The Kaushals own an Econo Lodge in Ortonville, Minn. as well.

Munish said he and Raj like the town of Spring Valley and like the fact that Rochester is so close. The City of Spring Valley and the Spring Valley Inn & Suites can be a quiet alternative to those who are in the area doctoring at the Mayo Clinic since Spring Valley is only 27 miles from Rochester.

According to Munish “business has been slow the last four months” but hopes they will have more guests in the months to come. Mr. Kaushal said that he and Raj have a lot of plans for the hotel in the future if business picks up.

In addition to Munish and Raj, who live and work at the hotel, Spring Valley Inn & Suites employs four part-time housekeepers. Munish spoke very highly of their employees saying they are “hard-working” people adding “it’s nice to see young people working and doing their jobs so well.”
