I highly recommend staying at the Ames Hilton Garden Inn. The staff is very friendly and professional and made sure our stay was great! The food was good, beds were very comfortable and it was quiet. Plus, being a part of the Hilton Honors system they make sure you feel valued and taken care of. This hotel has some of... More

I stay here often and never have had a bad experience until this last time. I was given room 104 with the whirlpool tub. After a long drive I was looking forward to a nice hot soak and relaxation. Well..... The jets barely worked so that was short lived. My bed comfort adjustment didn't work so I sank in the... More

This hotel staff and quality of the rooms keeps us coming back for every visit or meeting. The food is excellent. The rooms are clean. The staff is welcoming and positive. I come in often to see my son at ISU. I stay here every time I come to Ames because it feels like my home away from home.

Had a group mother-daughter trip to Ames to visit Iowa State and thought this hotel was perfect choice. Close to the campus and very nice, clean and friendly. All the staff we dealt with were very friendly. I will definitely stay here again if my daughter ends up going to ISU.

A very nice hotel; new & spotlessly clean. The staff is young and maybe still getting trained. We'd reserved a king suite with a rollaway and paid extra $15 in reservation for breakfast. Front desk staff was confused about how handle breakfast coupons & rollaway. But we got it worked out. No coffee in the lobby first afternoon, but it... More

For the price, I don't think this property is better than most of other quality hotels in Ames. The location is not better, the food not better, the room appointments not better. If you have a limited budget or would rather spend your money on other expenses like food, local events and entertainment, then stay somewhere else. If money is... More

The hotel is another example of a great hotel in the Hilton family of hotels. The staff when over and above in welcoming and helpfulness to assure our desires were satisfied. This service is generally rare in many mid-range hotels. Our experience was outstanding. Kudos to the all the staff and local management. The quality of facilities is also very... More

The hotel was clean. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was 10.99 per person so you may want to plan ahead Eating out may cheaper and tastier. There was a little problem with the toilet upon our arrival but it was promptly taken care of :) Overall, the Hilton is a good place to stay in Ames.

The staff at the AMES, IA Garden Inn was the most accommodating, welcoming and warm staff I have witnessed and worked with while traveling. Although I have been traveling for business for over 18 years, I must admit this was the one of the top three properties I have ever stayed at for a period of three plus days! This... More

This was a pretty nice newer hotel. It was very clean, rooms were quiet & people were friendly. They were filming some pre-caucus stuff in lobby for CNN when I was there. The hotel is close to the university & is about 10 to 15 minute drive to some good restaurants.
