Staff very efficient on check in procedure. Room was exactly as I had requested. Hotel was completely booked and not enough washcloths available when checking inbut housekeeping came to each room and informed us of the situation. I also had a cash deposit and Taita on front desk was prompt on inspecting room for a quick check out also. I... More

I was a little disappointed in the staff. It is very unprofessional when they complain in front of you about how overworked and understaffed they are. They could not supply enough towels for the pool and kept saying they are only authorized 36 towels for the weekend. The person at the desk would complain about me to some friend who... More

Rooms were nice, comfortable beds and clean. Very quite, did not hear really much of any hall noise. Breakfast was plentiful and the coffee was pretty good and we are picky coffee drinkers. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay here again when in Ottumwa.

The staff was friendly, the room was old but clean, the hot breakfast was much better than the normal continental breakfast. The price was great! It was centrally located so we could get on the highway, tour old homes on Court Street, or walk to old town downtown- It is really close to the Canteen Lunch Diner (open since WWII)... More

The staff was friendly, the hotel was clean (except for the candy wrappers we found on the window sill in our room), the pool was fun and clean. Their breakfast on Sunday was very good and promptly filled. We would stay there again.

It's winter in Iowa and you've got your hands full of luggage then you have to maneuver through two doors, which are not automatic, to get to the front desk. Not ideal. The rooms are stuffy, dark without adequate lighting for business travel. The TV doesn't work, toilet backs up, missing light bulbs, and your room view is the alley... More

Not only did this motel have scrambles eggs & sausages, but also biscuits & gravy along with fresh waffles & bagels. There was also a variety of yogurt, apples, milk, cereal, juice, hot coffee & tea. I like the eggs & sausage, but my husband also loves biscuits & gravy. It is rare to find all three.

We stay in Ottumwa 4-5 times a year, and this is a good sleep! Yes hard to find, but pretty accessible to every where. It seems like a rough area but not! Couldn't be safer with the police station less then ablock away. Nice waking area close to river. Breakfast is typical, not gourmet but waffles, eggs sausage, oatmeal,cereal. And... More

I had never been to Ottumwa Iowa ever before. A friend of mine convinced me to get out of my usual habit of national chains and go with this hotel in Ottumwa. Well, it was an interesting stay to say the least. Let's start off with the positives. The hotel had a great bed! Slept pretty well. The hotel is... More
