Yes, I would recommend staying here if you want clean hotel with efficient staff. Only thing I'd change is having larger bed pillows. Otherwise, not a negative thing I can think of for the hotel. Location also is convenient near the major highways.

The Country Inn & Suites in Ames is a great place to stay. The staff are friendly and accomodating and always greet you with a smile. The rooms are always clean and welcoming. It is near HWY 35 and 30 so easy access to most places, including great restaraunts!

We needed a place to stay while moving our son into his apartment near campus. The hotel was on the outside of town quite a ways from campus. The room was a suite, and had a comfortable king bed in one room, and sofa sleeper, chair, desk kitchenette and bathroom. There was a one cup coffee maker. The bedroom was... More

We just stayed here on 8/20/2014, we were moving our son into his apartment at Iowa State University. The hotel is nice and clean, the room was comfortable and was perfect for the amount of time we actually spent in it. We are staying here again for Family Weekend and are looking forward to a nice comfortable stay. The front... More

We were in town for a dance convention and booked a suite for 5 days. We had a large dining table and a kitchenette with a full-sized refrigerator so we didn't have to eat out all the time. Parents enjoyed the happy hour each evening and breakfast was good. Our group sat out on the front porch often. Nothing special... More

Staff was efficient and friendly. Got us into a room even though we arrived early. Room was clean and everything functioned. Breakfast was standard fair and person on duty made sure everything was kept available. Enjoyed our stay.

We came from out of state for the Iowa State Fair, and wanted to stay some where close to Des Moines, but something cheaper on the outskirts. I booked this hotel based on the reviews from TripAdvisor, and was very pleased that I did! The staff were so friendly, and the rooms/hallways/pool area/ breakfast area, let's just say the whole...

My family was traveling through the area due to moving my sister out of her college dorm room; one of the only hotels that will allow pets up to 50 lbs. Nice place to stay - room was quite large, has a in-room microwave & refrigerator. Beds were rather comfy - so many times hotels can be rather uncomfortable and... More

very friendly staff, got us a roll a way bed and extra towels, etc... brought them up to the room personally. Nice people, easy in / out from the highway. Kids loved the free cookies, adults enjoyed the free coffee around the clock.

We try to stay here each time we are visiting our kids at Iowa State University. Conveniently located off of Rt 35 and within minutes to Iowa State. Rooms are always clean, breakfast service is good, and the hotel has a work out room and pool. Wifi a plus. Would recommend if you are in the area.
