My daughter and I were traveling through Iowa and since our route took us through Oskaloosa, I booked and prepaid online. The evening I was to arrive I got a call on my cell phone from the owner, Vicky, who kindly asked me if I was planning on a late arrival. I told her we were just a few minutes... More

What a nice place! The female owner was the only person we dealt with and she was very friendly and helpful. The ice machine was empty one day and she said she would go to the convenience store next door and get some for us. (We didn't take her up on the offer because we needed a little walk after... More

We loved our stay! The staff was extremely friendly and went out if thier way to say hello whenever we were outside. We made a last minute decision to do the Knoxville races for the weekend and this motel had a cancellation. Our room was spotless and the bathroom was mostly updated and perfectly clean. At first it smelled like... More

Happy to report that I stayed at the Budget Inn again this year and had the same wonderful friendly experience I had before. Vickie and all her helpers keep the Inn spotless and are so accommodating. Feels like a home away from home. Beds are so comfortable -- never feel rushed out of room -Wendy and all the house keeping... More

Everyone saying "Great Ratings", "Well Maintained", "Wonderful Place". We had a room and friends had a room. Beds were ok. Wife and daughter forgot their conditioner and was going to use the hotel's but there was two shampoos and no conditioner. Friend's shower was literally a 1 yard by 1 yard standing shower that had a dangerous drain you wanted... More

This place is very old but well maintained. Everything was very clean. Not too many places to stay in this town. This place looks kind of dumpy from the street but its ok. I would stay here again if I had to. My shower was recently re-tiled and was nice except there was no place to put shampoo or soap.... More

I stayed at the Budget Inn in Oskaloosa last night because it was rated #1 by TripAdvisor among the 5 motels in that little town. I found out that I could trust TripAdvisor "reviewers" in that it was just what they claimed it to be - an older motel but very clean. If we were given the choice between older... More

We spent one night here while traveling. The woman at the desk was friendly and helpful, providing local information and making sure we had a room that would work well with children. The motel is old, however it appears they have tried to update it. The rooms are clean and a good size, however the bathroom was very small. There... More
