Location perfect, room excellent (besides according to my husband the bathroom needs a poop fan) comfortable beds, okay(ish) breakfast not many options besides waffles, but the waffles had many toppings! Coffee sucked. My only major complaint-- There was a mother F*^% cricket all night long. Now my husband found it relaxing. I on the other hand have a hate/hate relationship...

Just an average hotel. Easy to check in and out. The staff seemed friendly and room was cleaned everyday. I was there for 4 nights, two of the nights the whole hallway smelled like cat pee, but luckily it was only the hallway. Breakfast was regular stuff but one morning they were out of eggs and there was no one...

My family I stayed here for 5 days durning a dance competition at Iowa State. The rooms were clean and the price was good. Only thing I did not care for was the way the doors did not latch when they closed, extra effort was needed to get them to latch. Each door says please close door tightly. The breakfast...

My main criteria for a hotel is that it be clean and comfortable. I've stayed at this hotel many times over the years. It's always clean. The beds, for my preference, could be a little firmer, but I'm probably a bit abnormal in that regard, as I like a very firm bed. The pillows are also a bit small for...

The room was satisfactory and a good value. Easy to get to Iowa State from this location if that's what you are in town for. The breakfast is decent, unless the hotel is very crowded, which it was on the first day of our stay, then many things run out. I usually have a lot of trouble sleeping in hotel...

We have stayed at AmericInns before and have been happy with them. This particular facility is "tired" and needs to be refurbished. Also, there is no elevator access to the second floor making it a challenge for mobility challenged guests to move back forth between floors. Food was fine, the breakfast area crowded at times.

I am so glad I read the other reviews before deciding on a late arrival in Ames Memorial Day. We were heartily welcomed along with our little Westie. The lobby is large, warm & inviting. The room was large, clean & had good mattresses. Nice pool & spa. All very positive - two thumbs up.

The hotel was nice & quite. We had the pool to ourselves from about 6-7:40. There was a group swimming early, and they left food/used towels everywhere. It would have been nice if the staff had checked the pool more frequently to clean up used towels. But it wasn't hindering our enjoyment of the hotel. We stayed over the lobby,...
