Heading to Iowa State, this hotel is right around the corner and in great shape. The desk person was very friendly and checked us in quickly. I had a nice room with a separate bedroom and sitting area, get one if you can, it's nice. It was a late check in with an early start so I didn't get a... More

This was not my preferred hotel in Ames due to the price, but I was very pleased with my three-night stay. The staff were friendly, professional, and quick. The lobby was comfortable and my king bed room was clean, smelled wonderful, and had plenty of room. It's located off the highway, which can be noisy at times but it's not... More

The hotel staff was absolutely incredible, so was the food in the hotel restaurant. I ate breakfast there on multiple occasions where I had a very short time before having to leave for my meeting. The staff was extremely fast and efficient and attended to my every need. The reception staff was also extremely helpful and friendly and very accommodating.... More

This is a newer Hilton Garden Inn property, located just off of Rt. 30 in Ames. As with most Garden Inns, the rooms are very comparable to a Hampton/Holiday Inn Express/Fairfield, but the "front end" is where all the differences are. Features include a small bar, a restaurant, and a very large lobby - great places for informal business meetings.... More

Hotel looks beautiful. Is expensive. Breakfast isn't included. I had to wait over 10 minutes in the morning to get coffee, and then when he handed my cup to me, it spilled, on my hand (ouch). There were other issues, that I sure wouldn't expect from a Hotel that looked like this.

Stayed in Ames for a kids swim meet. The hotel was very nice and the cost reasonable. Amenities were good. Staff was accommodating. Location was nice for our event. Restaurant choices nearby are limited but Ames is easy to get around so there are plenty of choices within ten minutes.

I stayed one night for business. I checked in very late, but the evening staff were very attentive and friendly. The room was clean and modern, typical of the Hilton Garden Inn chain. It is likely the nicest hotel in this small college town. It's only about a 7 min drive to campus. I checked out before the breakfast service.... More

I travel a fair amount for business purposes and have found a great place to stay in Ames, near my destination. Staff is always friendly and responsive to any needs and the food is amazing - always! Great access from highways. I strongly recommend you try this Hilton Garden Inn, Ames IA if you need to stay in the area.

Nice hotel - the rooms are kind of small, and even though they might say they can cater for five, when we got there they couldn't have a roll away bed because it was a fire hazard. They provided blankets and pillows for a kind of bed on the floor and that was ok, we weren't there for long. It... More
