As someone who stays at Hilton group properties wherever possible this is without doubt the worst Hilton I have ever stayed in. They totally ignored my Hilton profile, the room was very shabby, lights where not working, rather disturbing large stains on the carpet and pictures falling apart. At breakfast we were ignored as the few employees were undergoing training.... More

I stayed at this hotel while recently visiting Iowa State U. While I was originally afraid it may have been too far from the campus, my options were limited, as the closer hotels were already booked. Overall, the hotel was well kept and the staff were all very friendly. Parking was free, and there were plenty of open spots. Though,... More

Very nice stay and conveniently located. It was close to both the university and restaurants, however only a few in walking distance. I was working in Jefferson, IA, and this was a great location to stay without being too far away. I only had one small problem (no shampoo when I was ready to take a shower...it was two conditioners... More

Decent hotel for the Ames area but lacked updated amenities, room had an overall dirty feel to it, small TV. However, the lobby area and pool area is very nice. Great staff at front desk, easy checkin.

The Décor of the hotel was nice and the building and rooms were clean. The beds were sleep number types, but were very uncomfortable. I would choose a hotel with a continental free breakfast next time. You have to pay for the breakfast offered here and it was pricey. We were constantly requesting additional towels, toilet paper, Kleenex, etc. which... More

Held our daughter's wedding reception here. Beautiful! Helpful staff with smiles. Our guests enjoyed a wonderful herb rubbed pork loin and fresh asparagus dinner. Our daughter had the wedding of her dreams.

This is a very comfortable and accommodating hotel with very nice rooms and a pleasant lobby and breakfast area. I come to visit often my daughter in college here and this is far and above the best property in Ames

Stayed here numerous times for kids sports events in Ames. Would highly recommend it. Probably one of the nicest hotels in Ames, book early as prices seem to rise on popular weekends. Clean, quiet, new. Good breakfast, although not free.

Loved the personally cooked breakfast. Staff were friendly and attentive - I was hosted and felt welcome. Room was comfortable as was the junior suite we booked for other family members. The function rooms worked well for a dinner of about 50 friends and for a family breakfast. Highly recommend
