Check into our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Ames, Iowa, to enjoy warm Midwestern hospitality. You'll soon be exploring the diverse museums at Iowa State University and cheering for the home team with the students in Campustown sports bars.

Relax and enjoy the vibrant college-town atmosphere that surrounds our Ames hotels. Wander the Iowa State University campus, lingering at Reiman Gardens or popping into the college's superb museums. Rural Midwestern farm history comes to life in paintings by Iowan Grant Wood at the Brunnier Art Museum and at the 1860 Farm House Museum. The first structure on what would one day become Ames' ISU campus, the Farm House displays multicolored quilts alongside period furniture and kitchenware. On game days, cardinal-and-gold-clad Cyclones fans gather for ISU football tailgate parties around Jack Trice Stadium.

Visit the Ames Downtown Farmers' Market year-round for a quick snack or picnic fixings. Stock up on locally raised strawberries and pears as well as artisanal cheeses and bread. Our hotels in Ames are near downtown restaurants, where moderately priced menus often include weekly specials. Dine on generous plates of locally raised, char-grilled beefsteaks and pork chops, or fill up on hickory-smoked barbecued ribs and pulled-pork sandwiches at local mainstay Hickory Park. Inexpensive sports bars are the rule in Campustown, near the university and our Ames hotels. ISU students gather here to watch Big-12 basketball on big-screen TVs over hearty burgers and icy beer.

Stay at our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Ames in any season. In spring, 20,000 tulips and daffodils brighten the grounds of Reiman Gardens; in summer, purple coneflowers take their place, followed in autumn by brilliant crimson burning bushes.

Shocked
By Bid Dude
Unfotunatley it seems every time we get a room at HIE , there is construction. The entry way to the lobby had tools and buckets behind the 1st set of sliding doors. We had to step over them to avoid [More] tripping. And workers in the lobby restroom, I had to wait to get the key to our room. Then in the AM on our way out , the juice machine was broken , eggs cold and muffins dry. Sorry to complain , but when you spend that kind of money , for a nights stay you expect some value. And I am a disabled Vet. [Less]
Large clean room
By SAN1
We had a king suite and the room was large and very clean. The bed was comfortable and I like that they had firm pillows and soft pillows. The air conditioner kept the room at a very comfortable [More] temperature and was not very noisy. The breakfast was good with different choices. They kept it well stocked and kept the area very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This motel is right off of I-80 and very easy to get to. [Less]

Definitely a family friendly and school group friendly hotel. [Less]
