An Inn in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
An Inn in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
“In fact, I highly recommend the inn, particularly if you find your HP running low. Just drop on INN! Ho ho!”
—Toadsworth, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
An Inn is a place where Mario and his Partners, for a small fee, can go to sleep so they heal their HP, FP, and, in the Paper Mario series, SP. The price varies by location; inns later in the game generally have higher prices. They appear in most of the Mario RPGs and games with similar elements.
In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, the inns at Marrymore and Nimbus Land offered extra services (usually a rare item or chance of getting one) in exchange for an additional fee.
Similarly, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and Super Paper Mario feature several inns which throw in an item as a bonus.
Paper Mario's Toad Houses served the same function, with the main difference being that they were free of charge, and in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the player could stay for free if Mario had an Inn Coupon in his possession.
- In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, if Mario sleeps in the Inns 50 times, a Cameraman Lakitu will appear, congratulate, and give him 200 coins.
