This is obviously a high volume, hard-use location . . . college towns often are! The owner made a bad decision choosing white painted woodwork, and the management compounds the problem by inadequate maintenance. Thus, the door to our room and others were uninvitingly grubby with fingerprints and scuffs of many colors. It made us wonder what else hadn't been cared for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ames mom great experience overall
we've traveled to ames iowa 5 times, and we have 5 more trips to make. our daughter is a student at the state college out in ames. We've stayed at 5 different hotels and this was the very best experience thus far. We plan on making this hotel our "go to one" It's location is perfect for getting us to the school and for getting us back home.
It's clean and comfortable and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

There were tiles in the bathroom that needed replacing, since they were cracked and broken. The beds and pillows were comfortable, the staff was polite and attentive. For the price, this hotel was a good place to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A regular family Fare stay for the Fair
Standard stay. We had a bit of a bump at check-in but staff made it right. Cost was higher due to the state fair going; however, the was the normal for all hotels in the area. It was a standard stay as you would expect it to be.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AngelaMc Greatly enjoyed our stay
We really enjoyed our stay at this location. It was centrally located right off of the interstate and it was easy to get around town. The internet quit working for about a day and a half but other than that our stay was enjoyable, safe and clean and I would definitely stay there again if we are in that area.

I was traveling to Ames on business and stayed at this hotel on a Friday night. I've stayed here before so it was an easy choice for me. I really like the property--it's close to the highway, there are lots of restaurant choices within 2 miles, the property is clean, the people are nice. I was not disappointed in my experience this time. Great place. Highly recommended.
