Unfortunately, management has decided on over strict State Rate Policy. They require an ID that specifically states "State of Iowa". Despite being University of Iowa employees, which when I last looked made me and my team traveling with me state employees, and being on official University business contracted through the Iowa Department of Public Health, the hotel refused to honor...

We've stayed at the Red Coach Inn a couple of times when we've travelled to the Red Oak area to visit family. The Inn is very well run, clean and quiet. I guess that since we went back, that's a very good sign! :) And, they serve a reasonable breakfast that's included with your rate, so that's another convenience. I'd... More

Small town with limited options but this hotel was nice. Nothing too fancy but clean and very friendly. The bar attached to it has pretty decent food and great beer prices. I'll stay here again when in town.

I stayed her for business and this is a very nice hotel. The lobby was very clean and the staff very friendly. There is an attached restaurant and the food there was good. If you did not want to eat there, just down the road are other options. The room was spacious. There was a comfortable bed, a chair to... More

Thank you for your comments. We are looking at adding refrigerators to the rooms. A microwave is available 24 hours for use in our breakfast area and you are more than welcome to use it at any time. I am passing along your comment about the slow WI-FI. We hope that your travels will bring you back to the Red... More

We stayed here when visiting Red Oak since it was one of only 2 places to stay in town. But it was a good choice as it was clean, comfortable and the staff was helpful. Breakfast was simple, but fine.

We reserved a room at the Red Coach Inn, Red Oak, Iowa for one night following a football playoff game facing a long night drive back home. We are certainly glad we stayed. The Red Coach is beautiful, sparkling clean Inn staffed by courteous desk clerks. The King Bed room we had was huge. Soft but firm pillows, wonderful mattress,... More

Thank you for staying and your review. I will agree with you that the breakfast area does get a little cramped at times. Hope that you will make it back to southwest Iowa and will be able to stay longer. More

I would like to apologize for the confustion with you room. I am not making excuses but we were full to capacity that weekend and there were having several guests that had changed rooms several times so they could all be close together and we did make an error in that process. It should not have happened but it was... More
