Days Inn - Ottumwa

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel was okay. A small repair to a light fixture should have been completed prior to our check-in.

I hesitated to book a room here based on other reviews but I was on a budget so I booked the room anyway . I had to arrive late for check in and called them to let them know and they were very kind and said of course they would hold the room and arrived at 11 pm and my room was still held. I got to my room and it was exactly as described and the most impressive thing to me was the room was immaculate, I mean the chrome on the faucets even shined. I really liked they had an alarm clock in the room too. I worried about noise since it was Mother's day weekend but it was very quiet there as the hotel is located at the North end of town away from any busy places. there was a breakfast available but I missed the cutoff time but checked it out and they had a make your own waffle station, fruits, coffee, all kinds of cereals too. I will stay here again based on how clean the hotel was and the staff was very nice too and a great price for what I got. The bed was not extra hard or to soft but I might not be a judge of that since I have a waterbed and am used to a softer bed. Highly recommend this if you don't expect a 5 star hotel for a cheap price. There is a nice small indoor pool on the first level but I did not visit it since I was short on time.

Stayed 3 nights and had to check in 3 hours early first night, which we where then charged for a full night, had no TV 2nd or 3rd night and each evening they had a different reason why. Room we booked came with a fridge and microwave but all we got was a fridge. Needless to say wouldn't stay at this location again.

there was a nasty,weird, smell coming from the front desk leading into hallways was on 2nd floor and that smelled like smoke, the bed smelled like armpits and not comfortable, just overal smelled throughout the building

Booked online....picture of pool was looked very large from the reality it was very tub was dirty and slimy...and our room smelled...after speaking to other guests, they had the same experience! Would NEVER book there again!!!!

Employees were speaking very broken English and were very difficult to understand. Not very accomodating to our questions about our stay there or the surrounding area. Rooms are small and marginally clean.

Choose Days Inn because ad said heated pool but was not heated. Plus refrigerator didn't get cold, needed it for babies bottle. Other wise was good.

Was great for the guys to get away! Pleanty of towles and good comfy beds.

the towels were stained, rough & thin - some had holes in them. stains on the comforter. not recommended.
