We called only a few hours ahead & were able to get a room. No regrets! It was spacious, clean, quiet, beautiful. The girl at the front desk was super helpful w/ our TV & suggestions for places to eat. Breakfast in the lovely dining room was perfect, well-attended. I would stay here again & again!

My son and I were visiting Iowa State so we where just in town for one evening. We checked in, ordered a pizza from a local establishment, and settled in for a cozy evening of TV watching and book reading. The rooms and whole house were beautiful and clean and just a treat to be in. Breakfast was ample and... More

This place is historically beautiful, the rooms are clean and unique and the staff are very friendly and helpful. My husband and I stayed here when we had a two day event to attend in Boone and we could not have picked a better spot - close to great dining choices, easy drive to Boone, and a lovely neighborhood to...

Best B&B experience I've ever had. Truly a gem! Wonderful period style furniture to match the 1920's architecture with the modern amenities that we've all come to expect. Within a few blocks of ISU campus, but in a quiet residential neighborhood.

On a quiet street a little off the main campus but within walking distance, my daughter and I had a wonderful experience at this bed and breakfast. We lacked for nothing in our king loft room. Comfortable bed and accommodations. We met nice people and had breakfast waiting for us in our shared dining room. Very cozy and warm.

From the moment we walked in we were hooked! The place smelled wonderful, just like walking into someone's home. The rooms are so nice and homey. Bed was super comfortable. Liked being close to campus but not on a busy street. Breakfast was made to order and delicious. Will stay again and tell anyone looking for a place to stay... More

Loved staying here! Everything was wonderful. Clean room, fabulous breakfast and so close to campus! Our room room was cute and had all the needed amenities, tv, cable, wifi and spa tub. Snacks were out to munch on during the day or later in the evening. I will be staying here in the future!,

My mom and I stayed at the Iowa House while we attended my college orientation. It is a short walking distance from the campus which was perfect. We stayed in a room with two twin beds which were very comfortable. The bathroom was very nice and surprisingly big! Downstairs in the living room area, there was snacks, coffee, hot chocolate....

The Iowa House location is great. Very near Campus Town and walking distance to almost everything Iowa State offers. The Football field and gymnasium would be a mile or two away, but the walk is pleasant and friendly(weather permitting). Breakfast is awesome. Note that the Iowa House is an old house which has been converted to a bed and breakfast,... More
