I stayed here for business travel and was quite pleased. The front desk staff were very attentive and helpful. The room was clean, modern, and comfortable. The location was convenient to the university and the interstate. I would definitely stay here again.

Best hotel in the greater Ames area. The staff at this hotel is always exceptionally friendly and helpful. Nearby amenities/entertainment are a plus as well. Breakfast service is friendly and quick - always helpful when traveling on business. Eggs made to order, everything readily available.

This is a very nice hotel. The room was nice, the bathroom was very clean (hair drier provided) and the bed was comfortable. The cooked breakfast (I had poached eggs and French toast) was simply perfect.

Nice hotel. The woman who checked us in was very nice and helpful. She was able to recommend a local restaurant that we were very happy with. The hotel was very clean and modern. The facilities looked nice. Our room was clean and quiet. The location was good, right off the highway and there were several restaurants within a few... More

Quiet, out of the way location, but easy drive to University. Clean, attractive, light filled lobby with all the amenities. Restaurant, small bar, TVs, multiple seating areas. Rooms clean and well appointed. However, the beds are firm to the point of causing discomfort.

I got married in Ames and attempted a room block at this hotel. The person in charge of room blocks was hardly available and after multiple contact attempts & voice-mails they finally returned my call. The lady was rude and thus we made a room block elsewhere. Also noteworthy, the hotel offers no perks for a room block and will... More

The hotel was clean and beautiful furnished. I do not eat a large breakfast so a complimentary breakfast or a discount for the breakfast buffet would have been appreciated. The internet room was appreciated and the workout room was up to date. The pool and whirlpool were clean and spacious.

Hotel was OK, front desk was friendly. Very nice looking lobby at least on the surface. As you look around deeper though you notice cleanliness issues, dirty switches, smears of "stuff" on various things just no attention to detail....the worst part though was the bedding....it had stains on it, the edges where it touched the ground were actually dirty like...

These hotel rooms are need of an update. The lobby is very nice, but the rooms were not nice. The beds are extremely hard (and I tend to like a firm mattress). Their mattresses are not normal mattresses. They are supposedly 'adjustable' but would not really adjust. We all had a very poor night's sleep. Towels were dingy. Walls needed... More

I would have LOVED to give a glowing review, but sadly I can't. Upon arrival I was impressed with the decor and cleanliness... Thought-wow I'm gonna love this place! 2 hrs later, as I keep trying to fall asleep, all I can hear is huge bangs from above my room. It was obvious that there were kids jumping off beds... More
