When we return to Ottumwa to visit family and/or attend class reunions, we always enjoy staying at the AmericInn. They are close to the downtown area, offer affordable room rates, high speed internet, microwaves and refrigerators, a great pool and hot tub. The breakfast bar is good too.

Indoor pool was nice. Hot tub was malfunctioning. My husband was informed by staff he needed to give button for... More

Quiet evening, good people, comfortable room. A bit pricy. Not that Ottumwa Iowa is the most happening place in Iowa, but, the hotel folks did point us toward a good place for drinks and dinner within walking distance. I'd go there again without hesitation.

Went to Ottawa for a quick turn around trip. Stayed at the AmericInn. Hotel staff was very helpful, added a fridge to our room. The room was clean and comfortable. It was located in town near restaurants and a small park. Didn't try the pool or spa. If you need a quick, no fuss, clean, safe place to stay that's... More

The best thing about this hotel was the young man who checked us in. He found a room for us on the top floor on the side away from the train tracks, and also took the ice blocks from our cooler and put them in the hotel's freezer overnight. The hotel is very worn out. The hallway was dim and... More

Entrance lobby area very clean and nice. Staff seemed friendly and helpful. Room was clean and nicely made up. Only issue was the cards not working well on the doors. Cost was slightly high but worth it. King size bed slept very well. I would stay there again.

This place was pretty rough. It was worn out, and dirty. The staff was unprofessional. It is to be expected, as Ottumwa is not a very nice or clean town. Housekeeping is not good. Fine stay for all intents and purposes however.
