I really liked our room. There were several comfortable chairs and a desk in our room. The bathroom is large! Also the shower has place to sit for people who need that. No bathtub but thats ok with me.Very clean spotless. Staff friendly!!

They did a nice job in remodeling the rooms, however there is no sound-proofing so you get to enjoy the blaring train horns at all hours, which the conductors like to lay-on for at least 30-60 seconds EVERY time they go by, which is about every half hour to hour ALL NIGHT LONG!

We are so sorry that you were bothered by the trains. There are some rooms that are quieter than others. Please feel free to ask for one on a different side. Also, on a bright note, the City of Ottumwa will soon have quiet zones and the trains will no longer blow their whistles. We have fought for a long...

The staff at this hotel are very helpful. I had made reservations for the wrong day and the lady that was working the front desk kept telling me not to worry that they would make it work..AND THEY DID.

Very easy and pleasant reservation and check in/check out procedure. Property clean and seems to be continually updated. Breakfast was great....biscuits and gravy. Centrally located, and right next door to Enterprise!! Will stay here whenever we visit Ottumwa!

I was pleasantly surprised at the inside of this hotel compared to the outside. It looked fine from the outside but the inside was quite a pleasant surprise. The rooms were very clean, well furnished. and everything worked the way it should.

We stayed here over Christmas, and while I still think this is the best overall value for a hotel in Ottumwa, I will say that the quality of stay has gone down over our last 3-4 times. The pool here is awesome, but it had some cleanliness issues, there were clearly some cleaning/filtration issues in the pool, and the general...

The hotel and the room were nice. Pool was booked for 8 hours on a Saturday afternoon so it was unavailable for guests to use. Spoke to 3 different staff members, including the manager, about the pool being booked and unavailable by 17+ older kids having a birthday party. All 3 staff members gave me a different story as to...

It was a freezing cold snowy night and we were on the sad mission of attending a visitation that night and a funeral of a beloved family member the next day. We checked into this hotel and were welcomed with a plate of warm cookies at the front desk and an equally warm greeting from the lady working there. Her...
