We were greeted at the door and was checked in quickly and efficiently. The room was beautiful and clean. WI-FI was easy to access and worked well for business dealings. I received prompt email receipt for checkout. We will definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for the first time when our son graduated from ISU. It is a newer hotel which is comfortable and very clean. We did not eat at this hotel but it sure looked and smelled good. This is on the west end of Ames so is not convenient to most restaurants in Ames but... More

Very Good overall. The only problem that I had was that I could not watch the NBCSN in my room. I had to go to the lobby or the bar to veiw this station. I wish they could of had that station available upon request to be activatied in my room.

This hotel is my first choice for a stay in Ames. The rooms are nice, clean, and updated. The bathrooms are spacious - you don't have to close the door to get in the shower. The beds are very comfy and the Internet is decent. Streaming requires a little patience though. The staff at breakfast were very attentive and the... More

We've been to Ames several time in the past few years; never really getting excited about our next hotel stay. This time however we found our new #1 hotel here. Very clean and well run. Nice fitness center. Whirlpool was out of service, but to be expected on a Monday morning. Not near restaurant row, but Ames is easy to... More

This hotel & it's staff have been consistently top-notch throughout the 5 years we have stayed there. It is clean, quiet, convenient to ISU, has plentiful parking & offers an excellent breakfast for a reasonable price. The staff (from housekeeping to front desk to management) do everything possible to accommodate their guests.

This hotel is very special as are its people. The hotel staff is very friendly and knowledgeable including the restaurant staff. Been staying here for the last five years during our visits to Ames Iowa and the Iowa State University. Rooms are clean and spacious, priced fairly, parking is very good, location is close to all local activities...University, shopping, restaurants.

The facility is reliably good. Clean, well-maintained, easy to access from the highway. It's right off HWY 30, on the West edge of Ames. It really is away from town, but it's a safe selection, up to the usual Hilton standards.

The Hilton Garden is conveniently located near Iowa State University Campus and Hwy 30. There are not a lot of restaurants nearby, but then Ames, IA is pretty small and easy to navigate so in that way, close to everything. I recommend staying at the Hilton Garden Inn.

We had a great time here. We showed up early and got right into our room which was great. Our room was clean, beds comfy, pool and exercise room was wonderful. It was great being right by them on the first floor. We asked about Pizza places and the front desk gave us a list of the closest delivery places... More
