The MarJo Motel is an iconic “Retro” motel located on the west-bank of the East Two River in Tower, MN. Built in the 1950’s the “MarJo” is a landmark reminder of the wayside motor-hotels that populated small-town rural America when road trips “up-north’ became popular six decades ago. The MarJo may be basic, but provides tidy, clean, comfortable rooms at an affordable price. Located just a short stroll from restaurants, bars and shopping, it is a perfect overnight rest stop, or a home away from home for weekly stays.
