An Inn is a recurring element of the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest II. The player's party is able to rest the night at an inn, which will fully restore every party member's HP and MP and removes any negative status effects. Almost all inns charge a fee in gold coins for this service, which increases as the player progresses through the storyline.
