    First of all, I'm going to say that I only stayed here for a night, so I didn't get to experience it fully, but I wouldn't want to stay for a long time. To start off with the good things, the wifi was fast and the rooms were very spacious. The breakfast was also very good, even though it was... More

    I had high hopes for the Hotel Ottumwa. It is a historic hotel that had been renovated. I have had some great experiences staying in this type of hotel, however, the Hotel Ottumwa was a disappointment. My disappointment started when I walked up to the check-in desk. There were three women behind the desk, and finally, one woman, almost begrudgingly,... More

    The hotel was built in 1917, so yes it has that old historic feeling, and the outlets aren't in the most convenient location. But the room was enormous, and the whirlpool was actually as advertised....a huge (easily 2 people with room to spare) tub in the room with a giant flatscreen that swivels so you can relax in bubbles and...

    We stayed here on a recent trip with friends. I love older local hotels like this with lots of character. This one isn't as grand as some restored hotels, but there are glimpses of its former glory. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and the beds comfortable. The friends we were traveling with did say their... More

    Lots of character! I am originally from Ottumwa and my family still lives there, so I have eaten at the hotel's cafe many times and attended several class reunions in the banquet rooms, but had never stayed in the hotel itself. Our room was very large with extremely comfortable beds and nice linens. Really enjoyed the included breakfast in the... More

    I collect old, classic hotels and The Hotel Ottumwa is one of my favorites. The minute you walk in the door, you know you are in the presence of history. Beautiful dark woodwork, and floor to ceiling mirrors grace the lobby. Where else would you find a hotel bar called the "Tom Tom Club"? The rooms have been recently updated... More

    We stayed here one night for a local wedding. The hotel building is over 100 years old, but they have done a nice job with the rooms. The beds were some of the best I've ever slept on in a hotel, and the breakfast that comes with the price of the room was incredible. There is an attached diner, and... More

    This hotel is awful!!! Our room was cleaning by the house keeper while we were out and we get back to the hotel. I noticed my things were out of place. So I check the spot where I hid some money. It was in my back jean pocket and the pocket was buttoned. The jeans were under a bunch of... More

    We reserved several rooms at the Hotel Ottumwa to celebrate the TGIS party held at the Ottumwa Coliseum in April. The Hotel is an older historic building in downtown Ottumwa and it is near the Coliseum. We had requested that all rooms be placed together and in spite of this request one of our group was put on a lower... More

    We stayed at the hotel for a class reunion. We loved our suite, with HOTTUB, and very comfortable bed..food was good at the restaurant. The room was clean and everyone was very friendly. We will stay here again.
