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.
