This is a newer Hilton Garden Inn property, located just off of Rt. 30 in Ames. As with most Garden Inns, the rooms are very comparable to a Hampton/Holiday Inn Express/Fairfield, but the "front end" is where all the differences are. Features include a small bar, a restaurant, and a very large lobby - great places for informal business meetings.... More

Hotel looks beautiful. Is expensive. Breakfast isn't included. I had to wait over 10 minutes in the morning to get coffee, and then when he handed my cup to me, it spilled, on my hand (ouch). There were other issues, that I sure wouldn't expect from a Hotel that looked like this.

Stayed in Ames for a kids swim meet. The hotel was very nice and the cost reasonable. Amenities were good. Staff was accommodating. Location was nice for our event. Restaurant choices nearby are limited but Ames is easy to get around so there are plenty of choices within ten minutes.

I stayed one night for business. I checked in very late, but the evening staff were very attentive and friendly. The room was clean and modern, typical of the Hilton Garden Inn chain. It is likely the nicest hotel in this small college town. It's only about a 7 min drive to campus. I checked out before the breakfast service.... More

I travel a fair amount for business purposes and have found a great place to stay in Ames, near my destination. Staff is always friendly and responsive to any needs and the food is amazing - always! Great access from highways. I strongly recommend you try this Hilton Garden Inn, Ames IA if you need to stay in the area.

Nice hotel - the rooms are kind of small, and even though they might say they can cater for five, when we got there they couldn't have a roll away bed because it was a fire hazard. They provided blankets and pillows for a kind of bed on the floor and that was ok, we weren't there for long. It... More

Unfortunately none of our rooms cater to five people, even with a roll-away bed, so we will be looking into and correcting this information. I do apologize for the confusion.

This is not saying much since most of the other hotels in Ames are lower quality. The HGI is your typical Garden Inn. Good quiet rooms, decent breakfast (not free), and good work areas. This one is one the West side of Ames. Not too much around. A decent Bar/restaurant, West Town Pub, is within walking distance as is a... More

HG Ames is a solid hotel but not great. Good to note that considering the other options - it's not too bad. Very much more of a motel feeling than hotel but clean. Staff was courteous. Not much else for options in the area.
