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

Had fresh made waffles with blue berries and strawberries available top them with. They let you use the microwave & toaster after hours to heat up dinners, etc. They gave me a late check out to take a nap... 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

Thank you for your comments. We are so glad that you had a good experience at check-in. We are working on figuring out why your room was not cleaned up to standards before you checked into it. While the check-out clerk was partially right, we have not completed the renovation. We will be getting new carpet in all of the... 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.

The hotel was clean and well kept. Our room was spotless. We were next to a train station and trains passed as late as 11pm. It didn't bother us but it might for someone who likes quiet. The pool area was great, lots of families there. Would stay again.

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed the pool! We work hard to keep it in top-condition for our guests. Ottumwa is transitioning to quiet zone so the trains won't keep the downtown up all night anymore. We are thrilled this is taking place. Please do come back anytime! More

Room was dirty and had hair all over my bed, when I asked the staff about it I was told there's nothing they can do. After returning back from work my room was flooded from the toilet backing up somehow while I was gone. Which makes me wonder if your staff is using the facilities in my room. After I... More

After briefly checking into a different hotel in Ottumwa, but then promptly leaving due to cleanliness issues, the AmericInn was a welcome site! Room was updated and clean and they had a good, hot breakfast in the morning. And even though there are train tracks nearby and you can hear them blow their horns throughout the whole night, the clean... More
