We have stayed at Hotel Manning several times. Spent our honeymoon there in a romantic room furnished with the finest antiques and had a wonderful Sunday Brunch. We sat on the second story porch and played chess, and watched the lazy Des Moines River flow by. No TV, NO phone, No WIFI. Just peace and quiet. This time, during Chicago... More

The Villages of Van Buren was a perfect place for a relaxing weekend! We stayed in a couple of rooms at Hotel Manning. The old hotel is beautiful and full of antiques. We had a room with two beds that overlooked the river, and a single room with a double bed (there were three of us meeting for a girls'... More

As soon as you open the Hotel manning house doors you are transformed into the early 1900's.first thing that you notice is a very old hotel cash register,intricate wood designed stair case, the old glass windows,heavy doors,very high ceilings and all the decor that comes with the period. There are places to sit on the very long porch to watch... More

It was like stepping back in time. The rooms were filled with antiques, and it was like staying in a museum. Our room had a bathroom but not all rooms had them. The shared bathrooms were very nice, I checked them out. The lock on our door broke and we were upgraded to a corner room. It had a bay... More

The owners of the Hotel Manning have done an amazing job preserving the 1800s riverboat era character of the Hotel Manning, located in Van Buren county seat Keosauqua. The building is like a museum, with beautiful antique furnishings and art, and not much aside from the bathrooms to place you in modern times. Listed on the National Register of Historic... More

The property has character, charm and a great location on the banks of the Des Moines river. The two rooms that face the river are higher priced than the other but well worth it. That said, the property is not restored to the modern level of detail sometimes found in historic properties. It is likely much as it really was... More

There is the main historic hotel that has been restored to a period appearance. The bedrooms are all upstairs & are decorated with beautiful old style beds/furniture and fabrics. I am not sure that all have private baths. No elevator so you have to be able to climb that big staircase. Not frilly/fancy/upscale but felt very original to the 1800s.... More
