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.

Good clean room. Clean work spaces. Price was average. The pool had a closed sign on it for the two nights I stayed at the hotel. When I checked in, I was told not to dial a certain number to get [More] front desk help because it wasn't working. When I got to my room, the toilet seat was only 11 to 12 inches off the ground. While these items may seem picky, today's traveler has expectations of a totally hassle free stay. [Less]
