This hotel is very clean and the staff is extremely friendly. It is located in a nice area of town and it is a very short drive away from Iowa State University. We have stayed here many times and will continue to stay here in our future trips to Ames.

The Hilton Garden Inn in Ames is as you would expect most Garden Inn's. It was clean, and the staff was very courteous. The room was neat and clean with comfortable bedding. The bartender at the lobby bar was friendly and helpful with advice on places to eat in town.

I have stayed at this HGI numerous times. Great location and great value. Sometimes on way down to Des Moines (from Mpls) it's nice to cool your heels a bit before the stop, but still close by. The rates here are great. The rooms are very nice. The work desk and chair are great. I had dinner here this time... More

Horribly cracked toilet in our room. Second morning, the hair dryer stopped working. Front desk staff was not very helpul but finally located another one. When I suggested if they didn't have another one handy, we could take one out of a room that had already checked out. Was told that was "against policy." Oh pulleeeez. Like they sanitize hair...

This was a clean/nice hotel. One of the best in the area. The rooms were comfortable with a thermastat on the wall to control the temperature. Newer hotel in Ames, close to Iowa State University, less than 5 minute drive.

Good Hotel, clean big rooms and an ok breakfast. Everything was fine, nothing to complain about. Was there for a Business Trip and specially the Wifire was great, really fast. Bed was good, only the really noisy aircon was disturbing.

I love the Hilton. My company lets us pick from a few hotels when we travel and my choice is always the Hilton. Staff here are friendly and knowledgable and they make every effort to ensure your stay is nice. The restaurant serves good food at breakfast and supper. I'm not sure about pricing because I get a meal card.... More

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
