This was my second stay at the Hotel Ottumwa, the first was a number of years back and it was also good. The location in the center of town was ideal for me and the pricing was not too bad. This is an older hotel so keep that in mind. I also visited the in house restaurant for breakfast and... More

I travel for business and had an assignment in Ottumwa, IA. I stayed in the extended stay apartment at the Hotel Ottumwa. The accommodations were great! The rooms were big for an extended stay. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. I could easily adjust the heating to my liking. The kitchen was stocked for 4 place settings, cookware... More

Stayed here for a week during a business trip. Very friendly staff, the rooms are clean and serviceable but dated. It's the only hotel in town with a restaurant, bar, and snack shop on site. Very convenient to everything in Ottumwa. I rented a room for a month for my employees after my stay so that says something.

Stayed here for a night. Price was great and you get your money's worth. Can be a little problematic for taller folks like myself. Hung off the bed and the shower head was low, but for the price I am more than willing to deal with that. A sit down breakfast the next morning include is great, but you do... More

I stayed there, not really sure of what to expect. The building was located in a good area, close to the local church, and near the other locations relevant to my family trip. The room was clean. The bathroom was especially clean. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was good.

It's your basic food service restaurant, American grill with salads and soups. I travel through Ottumwa twice a year and this was my first visit. Was there at 7:30 pm, salad bar was closing down, order a grill chesse with ham and a salad. The food was fine but not amazing, the wait staff was friendly and service was very... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. The hotel is nestled in the downtown area with a bar and resturant inside. It's older so the history was very cool. Nice updated rooms, comfortable beds, quiet, and made for a great, relaxing weekend! Highly suggest staying here. Plenty to see and do in the area as well.

It is your typical old hotel that has been rescued from the wreckers ball - only to be ruined by thoughtless remodeling. Most of the hotels original charm has been destroyed by renovations which are highly inconsistent with its original design. Mostly what this place has going for it, is location and price. With the exception of the manager, I... More

The room was a good price for a whirlpool tub. The bed was very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again with no hesitation. It is within walking distance of the downtown area.
