very friendly staff; clean room and reasonable price rate; I stayed with my husband for one night and my three girls. They didn't want to leave. Very private one floor area with its parking space... It is a great place to stay for a quick getaway or traveling by

First room had bed bugs. Which he tried to tell me were chiggers or I was allergic to Purex. I saw the bugs.

This has been our home away from home while on business in the area. Rooms are very comfortable and clean and the management has been very welcoming and friendly. Would strongly recommend a stay here if in the area. Rates are very reasonable. This is our 2nd stay in the past 2 months.

The Diplomat is a small roadside independent. I was very impressed. The staff is very friendly and professional. The room I stayed in was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The room was what I needed for a one night stay. Overall, I would recommend this motel. Keep in mind, this IS Oakland City, Indiana.There is nothing to do...

Using the shower floods the bathroom because the bottom is wooden. Sheets had blood stains and trash when we got here, shrugged & tossed blankets on top of it because we didn't want to deal with it. Now we're told we have to pay $50 to replace & GTFO. (No joke on this one: It looks like the last woman...

This a a pleasant place, friendly, and clean. Great Rates. Close to work. And they wash your laundry. I would stay here again. The house keepers do a great job, they all make you feel very welcome. And you can even have pets at this place.
