We were traveling and needed a place to stay. We just wanted a place to sleep and found this place. When e checked in-late- they were accommodating. Very pleasant even though it was late. It is an older motel but the bathroom was updated, the room was clean and comfortable. So glad we stayed here. Don't stay expecting breakfast or...

My daughter and I were traveling through Iowa and since our route took us through Oskaloosa, I booked and prepaid online. The evening I was to arrive I got a call on my cell phone from the owner, Vicky, who kindly asked me if I was planning on a late arrival. I told her we were just a few minutes...

What a nice place! The female owner was the only person we dealt with and she was very friendly and helpful. The ice machine was empty one day and she said she would go to the convenience store next door and get some for us. (We didn't take her up on the offer because we needed a little walk after...

We loved our stay! The staff was extremely friendly and went out if thier way to say hello whenever we were outside. We made a last minute decision to do the Knoxville races for the weekend and this motel had a cancellation. Our room was spotless and the bathroom was mostly updated and perfectly clean. At first it smelled like...

Wife and daughter forgot their conditioner and was going to use the hotel's but there was two shampoos and no conditioner. Friend's shower was literally a 1 yard by 1 yard standing shower that had a dangerous drain you wanted...

This place is very old but well maintained. Everything was very clean. Not too many places to stay in this town. This place looks kind of dumpy from the street but its ok. I would stay here again if I had to. My shower was recently re-tiled and was nice except there was no place to put shampoo or soap....

I stayed at the Budget Inn in Oskaloosa last night because it was rated #1 by TripAdvisor among the 5 motels in that little town. I found out that I could trust TripAdvisor "reviewers" in that it was just what they claimed it to be - an older motel but very clean. If we were given the choice between older...
