Featured Ames Hotels

Stay at one of our Holiday Inn® hotels in Ames to discover this friendly Midwest college town. Head to the Iowa State University campus to tour the college's renowned museums and sample Ames' best after-hours nightlife.

The Iowa State team colors of cardinal and gold brighten the historic campus of Iowa State University, just a short drive from our hotels in Ames. Catch a Cyclones football game at Jack Trice Stadium or head for the campus museums, the best in the city. At the Brunnier Art Museum, colorful glassware by Louis Comfort Tiffany and Dale Chihuly gleam alongside Iowa painter Grant Wood's rural Midwestern landscapes. Vintage quilts and 19th-century enameled dinnerware bring the frontier prairie to vivid life at the Farm House Museum. Visit the university's Reiman Gardens to see spectacular purple coneflowers and rare roses in bloom.

Enjoy a picnic lunch of locally grown Iowa produce. Browse for ripe strawberries, crisp apples, artisanal cheeses and fresh-baked bread at the Ames Downtown Farmers' Market, open year-round. Our Ames hotels are a short drive from downtown, where you'll find Ames' best cafes and restaurants. Pick up Dutch letter cookies and banket, a flaky almond pastry, for afternoon snacking at Ames' bakeries. At dinnertime, sample hickory-smoked barbecued ribs and pork sandwiches at local favorite Hickory Park. Generous helpings of Ohio-raised beef, pork and vegetables fill cafe menus elsewhere downtown. Before returning to our hotels in Ames, guests can visit Campustown for a late-night beer at sports bars crammed with students and fans watching Big-12 basketball rivalries.

Book a room in our Holiday Inn Ames hotels in spring, when the Reiman Gardens' 20,000 daffodils, tulips and hyacinths burst into bloom, or in autumn when high-spirited ISU football kicks off at Jack Trice Stadium. The city's friendly Midwestern hospitality is always in season.

A Great Spot for New Year's Eve

Quiet, Restful, Convenient
By ISUMomHudson
This hotel is just right for an overnight stay - close to the highway to get started in the morning; enough substantial hot and cold breakfast items to have what I would consider a full breakfast. [More] The room was clean and most importantly quiet. Nice TV, lots of channels. Comfortable bed. The window could be cracked for some fresh air, welcomed even in winter. I stay here when I drop my son off at school after home visits, then head back home in the morning. It's about 4 hours from our house and I don't want to drive down and back in one day. Great coffee - with good flavored creamers in the breakfast area - I took two cups for the road and was on my way! [Less]
