I stayed here with a friend in the beginning of October with our kids, as soon as I checked in I thought the man at reception was unfriendly and seemed very annoyed that I reserved a room for a week and told me not to reserve the room again as it was full. we did get a phone call from... More

My room was located in the front, right by the very busy road. Staff and owners were extremely rude and very unprofessional! I stayed for a week and they didn't clean my room but brought me a vacuum and cleaning spray and even a toilet brush so that I could clean the room myself. I had an emergency phone call... More

This is truly a motel from the 1960's. I'm guessing not much has changed. The furniture, bed, colors and fixtures all take you back in time. The important thing is that everything was clean. Disappointment was although they advertise breakfast, at 7:15 this morning the breakfast room was still dark and locked. I did not see breakfast hours posted.

We stopped here passing through town. I had done some research of motels in the area. I hadn't made a reservation since I wasn't sure if we would make it that far in our travels. The website showed about $54 after taxes with a AAA discount. I pull in, the guy wants $59.99, plus $10 for extra person. No AAA... More

Reserved this for 3 nights during the Knoxville Latemodel Nationals in nearby Knoxville. Hosts were very nice. The room was decent. Everything was adequate for our needs. If you are looking for a place to sleep and shower, this will fit the bill nicely.

This is an older property. The room we had was small with big furniture that made it seem even smaller. The TV was newer as was the A/C unit. They need new bedding and mattresses. The room was clean as was the bath. We were just there for one short night and it was ok for us. If you were... More

First of all, we stayed in the back building because rooms at the front were supposed to be sold out. Did not see too many cars in the 3 days we were there. This was the dirtiest room we have ever been in. The bathroom floors had bugs, the shower leaked at both ends so the floor was always wet.... More

This is a great place to stay. The prices are very reasonable, the room was clean and neat, the continental breakfast was great. We had two dogs with us and did have a bit of an issue there.

At the desk they told me that races were on at Knoxville and it was hard to find rooms within 50 miles. I think they were right as the room was $79.99 at the higher end of my expectations here. The bathroom was small and had no tub, just a shower. Room interior was not the newest but at a... More

Nice place to stay. Management met us at midnight and allowed us to check in. Very quiet and clean. Location was great, price was right. We will be staying here the next time we come to Oskaloosa. Would recommend to anybody travelling in the Oskaloosa area.
