Offering elegance, history, and genuine hospitality, The Continental Hotel is southern Iowa’s premier boutique hotel. A hidden gem on the historic Centerville Square, our 18-room hotel dates to 1866. We have hosted a number of famous historical figures including Booker T. Washington and Carrie Nation. Today, the hotel is operated as a social enterprise by the Morgan E. Cline Foundation. Any profits go towards supporting the foundation’s mission to foster a thriving Appanoose County, Iowa.

The space
Each of our rooms is uniquely decorated and we offer a number of different room types perfect for solo travelers or groups. Please note that this apartment is not in the main body of the hotel. It has a separate entrance with its own parking garage.

Guest access
The Continental has a restaurant, Lucile's Steaks and Spirits, on the main level that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can order craft beer, wine, or cocktails at our lobby bar. Both our front porch and secluded back patio are great places to gather with friends for a drink. Our historic barbershop museum features photos of the building through the years as well as items found in the hotel during renovations.
