3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
Always like doing historic hotels. The outside is very historic. Inside…… meh. Maybe the only original thing is the lobby floor and the very tired elevator. Rooms were nice but redone in the 80’s perhaps. Called down in the morning by pressing zero, no directory on the phone, woman at the other end of the line seemed confused by the request for a “over the phone check out” still like it for the great lounge/bar and cool outside look. Would recommend

4/5 Good

Old but nice
The room smelled a little musty and there was a lot of noise from the street. However, it was a cool old building, right down town, and the staff was very friendly.

Loved the stay
We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Ottumwa! It was clean, charming and quaint. Staff was very friendly. It was so nice to be in the downtown area within walking distance of places to see. Along with the hotel having it's own bar and restaurant. Best price in town with everything right there. We will definitely be back!
