After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today’s Groupon offers respite from the chaos: for $109, you get accommodations for two at Hotel Pattee in Perry, valid Sunday–Thursday (up to a $220 value). This package includes the following:

  • A one-night stay in a standard queen, king, or two-queen room (a $150 value)
  • A $50 credit toward dinner for two at David’s Milwaukee Diner
  • One hour of bowling for two, including shoe rental, at the Arthur “Oley” Olson bowling alley (a $20 value)
  • A 40% discount at the Copper Door Aveda Spa
  • A 20% discount on Hotel Pattee merchandise
  • Complimentary access to the fitness center<p>

Hotel Pattee’s genial staff welcomes visitors to 40 themed guest rooms that each celebrate small-town America, cultural diversity, and the colorful history of the Midwest. A handcrafted window valence frames the sunshine that flows into the Swedish room to warm two queen-size beds and a collection of Gustavian furniture. Here, up to four guests can surf the Internet from a well-lit desk or practice synchronized swimming routines in a luxurious spa tub. Otherwise, Slavic shawls and Russian paintings line the Russian room, occupied by a hand-painted custom-built king bed. Every room comes equipped with oversized towels, a range of pillow choices, and fluffy robes to make for a memorable and relaxing getaway. After resting up in cozy digs, guests can collect spares at a subterranean bowling alley that recalls the historic hotel’s original wooden lanes or strike culinary gold at David’s Milwaukee Diner, whose made-to-order dinner menu teems with flatbread pizza ($11.95), steak entrees ($20.95–24.95), and savory pastas ($11.95–$17.95).

Today’s deal includes a 20% discount on Hotel Pattee merchandise and 40% off at the on-site spa, which pampers bodies with Aveda facials, aromatherapy massages, and mani-pedis that lend human paws more glamor than diamond-studded tube socks. Or visit the in-house fitness center to lift weights, pedal bikes, and bask in a sauna, or stroll to local attractions such as the Ben Franklin Variety Store and a 1930s movie palace.
