2nd time we stayed at this hotel for ISU events. Nice modern and newer. Love the free cookies. Only negative is we couldn't get he heating/cooling vent from blowing air all night long. Nice bartender went out of his way to make us a special drink. We would stay at this hotel again.

In many cases,The staff seemed very willing to go the extra mile, made the experience quite pleasant. We enjoyed ourselves.Location is handy to the highway and not far from anything in town you'd want to participate in,ISU, groceries, attractions.

Overall not a bad experience. I was a little surprised to not find wireless internet, so it was a good thing I had the cable with me. Room was clean and neat. Making coffee with a Keurig was a plus. The décor of the motel was nice enough. I was a little surprised that there wasn't a complementary breakfast provided,... More

This was my first trip to Ames for a business trip. I was told this was the newest hotel in Ames. The hotel design is very updated and pleasant on the inside. The lobby and area for eating was very clean. The people at the front desk were extremely helpful with restaurant choices, they even have a nice map of... More

I travel 250 days a year and practically live in Hilton flagged properties and am usually pretty forgiving, but this one takes the cake. I was upgraded to a suite - a very large room with a separate bedroom, but the "very large room" is just a vacant space with no additional furnishings or amenities than you'd find in a... More

Thank you for taking time to comment on your stay with us. I apologize for the condition that you found your room in and the inconvenience it caused you. This was an error on our part as the previous guest left one day early and she departed after our normal checkout. Her room was cleaned before we knew that she... More

The room and amenities were great. The hotel staff were wonderful - flexible, patient, and very nice! I booked the room under my name, and my sister arrived before me and was able to check in with no problems (I'd made a note of this possibility when I booked online). Later, we asked about adding the breakfast to our one-night... More

Looking for a hotel to stay for the next few years and we found it! Stayed here two nights for a college visit and everything was perfect. Beautiful room Clean room Immaculate workout facility Outstanding staff Superb breakfast Beautiful hotel with a really good pizza place next door! I'd give it ten stars if I could!

My room was very clean, stocked with quality products and very quiet considering being on HWY 30. The staff was polite, very helpful and attentive to everyones needs. I was close to the ISU campus, but not too close that I was bothered with distractions. I would recommend staying at this Hilton to all.

Very nice looking hotel. Room quality is good and clean. My major complaints are the bed not being comfortable, noise transfer between rooms, and noise of the wall furnace in the room. Access to the hotel is good right off Highway 30 in West Ames.

Nice clean, quiet hotel. The two room suites are nice, with two bathrooms and a jacuzzi tub. This hotel is on the west side of Ames, close to our college daughters' apartments. It's easy to get to in a quiet location and has plenty of parking.
