“Comfortable Room”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Americinn is the nicest hotel i've been able to find in ottumwa. Its a good location downtown only drawback can be train noise, a room facing the street seems to quiet the noise some. Good restaurants within walking distance. Bubbas bbq was awesome. The hotel has exercise room, pool, hot tub a decent breakfast, and pretty comfortable beds and was clean and quiet which is important to me.

Room Tip: A room facing the street cuts back train noise

I have stayed here twice & will definitely stay here the next time I am in town too. The staff is friendly & super helpful. The rooms are clean as is the lobby & the rest of the hotel. I give it two thumbs up for sure!

While this was a very nice stay overall, the "computer" deleted our reservation hours before our arrival. A phone call fixed the problem, but thank my stars I checked my email before walking out the door. (This was an AmericInn issue, not an Ottumwa issue.

The room was clean and up to date. This place is NOT the Hyatt-Regency, but it exceed my expectations for downtown Ottumwa. The pool is rather nice and larger than I had anticipated. The spa was nice and really hot. (Which was great after a long day in the car...) The breakfast room is way too small, however the breakfast offered is quite nice: scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, bagels, biscuits and gravy along with fresh fruit and yogurt. There is a larger gathering room off the pool that would be nice for a family gathering. I wish the large family using the breakfast area as a personal bar would have been given this option instead of crowding the lobby and 9:00 at night.

Parking is easy and well lit. I found housekeeping pleasant and prompt when I asked for more blankets and towels. There IS train noise. However, it is not excessive and there is no where in Ottumwa to get away from trains.

Good Value, well keep up and clean. I will be back. They have a nice pool area but the breakfast area is a bit small. King size room good size. I had a problem with my flat screen TV and they brought up a new one and solved the problem.

This is a beautiful and clean place to stay. The manager and the whole staff were so nice and friendly and helped us to enjoy every minute of our visit. The pool and hot tub are beautiful also. Such hugh sunny windows that give you the lodge look spa feeling around the pool are so relaxing. and the place is so clean. the hot tub is hugh and works great. this hotel is ran the way you only dream of finding. thank you for the wonderful time we spent in your hotel.
