Positive Reviews


Convenient location

Guests have found the location of this hotel convenient and easily accessible by car. The hotel offers a good base for visiting students at Iowa State University and there are few attractions or points of interest in the area that are further away from the property than a ten to 20-minute drive.


Friendly and helpful staff

The standard of service offered by the staff at this hotel appears to be good. Although some of the reviews relate to when the hotel was a Hampton Inn (changed in May 2106), feedback since the changeover has remained impressive in this area.


Budget-friendly choice

Previous guests have found this Ames hotel to be a budget-friendly choice. Room rates are reasonable and guests have noted that the various freebies such as breakfast and Internet access can add up to significant savings throughout the course of a stay here.

Negative Reviews


Mixed feedback about rooms

Guests tend to find the room amenities better than usual. However, guests do describe the rooms as small and dated and also highlight some areas where maintenance could be improved. Mold and damp have been noticed in the rooms and guests often found the beds uncomfortable.


Housekeeping could be improved

Previous guests have been disappointed with the standard of cleanliness at this hotel. The bathrooms in the rooms, especially, are a regular source of disappointment. Guests have reported hairs (of the curly variety) and stained towels.


Some internal noise concerns

Guests have found this hotel fairly noisy. The rooms seem poorly soundproofed and this problem is worsened by the hotel’s apparent lack of enforcement of pool times and quiet hours.
