I've stayed there a total of 3 nights now. My daughter has been visiting ISU as a potential college for the fall and now that she is set to go there, we will definately be back, The rooms are clean, staff is friendly and I love the breakfast! It was very easy to book a room online as well.

The staff was very friendly and went the extra mile to help us with directions, dinners and even got us a new refrigerator when ours stopped working. They offered to keep our food and beverages in their refrigerator... More

We stayed at the County Inn & Suites in Ames, Iowa for two nights. The hotel is very well kept and the staff was friendly. I made my reservation on line with no problems. Comfy bed with extra pillows! Will stay again on our next visit.

It was hit and miss at this property. We were greeted at an entry door that requires a lot of strength as it has not been adjusted properly. Basically, the left and right doors often bind / rub together requiring you to essentially open both doors at the same time. I'm surprised management or the maintenance staff hasn't figured this...

This is the hotel that we choose whenever we are in the Ames area! It is a fairly new chain. It is family friendly, clean, and has great cookies and coffee at all hours of the day! The breakfast which is included in the price of the hotel room is one of the best!
