In the heart of historic downtown this historic hotel could use some modernization but it's completely comfortable. Small bathroom but everything worked. Fridge, microwave and coffee pot - even a ceiling fan that I enjoyed. There are two places to eat in the building and breakfast is included with the room from one of them.

This is a historic hotel in the downtown area. We found our room to be large, clean and comfortable. The room was very quite considering being downtown. The cooked to order breakfast (served during covid) was very good.

This was my second stay and visit to Hotel Ottumwa. Both times on a cross country bicycle journey. Yes its a older building, with some older pieces to the puzzle, but I found it to be very comfortable and and a great place to stay. My big 3 needs are always quiet, clean, and comfortable. Hotel Ottumwa always meets them for me. My room was clean with everything working properly including a microwave and refrigerator. The front desk staff has always been polite, professional as well as engaging. I love the breakfast that is offered in the morning. So much better than the many "continental breakfast" served these days at other hotels! If I ever return to Ottumwa, Hotel Ottumwa will certainly be my first choice for accommodations!
