I was here for a short stay overnight and was having some troubles regarding my room. The younger lady, brunette said she was newer, was awesome! Unfortunately I didn't catch her name.

The hotel itself was very clean, modern and handy for shopping, sightseeing, etc. Desk clerks were friendly and helpful. The room I was in was on the ground level on the backside of the hotel and was very noisy, especially at night. The train station is one block away and the train traffic was nearly constant. My biggest complaint however... More

Great place to stay. Beds are comfortable, breakfast was good although it did take a long time for them to refill when items were out. Went to the TomTomTap for dinner and to watch the World Series. That is only 1 block from this hotel and was good also. Would recommend this hotel to others.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do apologize for the slow service at breakfast. The Tom-Tom Tap is certainly an excellent historic hotel lounge just right down the street. We definitely recommend everyone check it out. Please come back and stay with us again. More

When we return to Ottumwa to visit family and/or attend class reunions, we always enjoy staying at the AmericInn. They are close to the downtown area, offer affordable room rates, high speed internet, microwaves and refrigerators, a great pool and hot tub. The breakfast bar is good too.

Quiet evening, good people, comfortable room. A bit pricy. Not that Ottumwa Iowa is the most happening place in Iowa, but, the hotel folks did point us toward a good place for drinks and dinner within walking distance. I'd go there again without hesitation.
