Larry takes care of ou in the mornings with the breakfast they serve. He is always there to greet you with a smile and warm greeting. I have been staying there for almost 3 months straight and he is just great!

Room was clean, at a good price and staff was very helpful. Called ahead and had my room ready when I arrived. Staff was quick and polite. Room was cool and ready to be used for catching up on paperwork before dinner.

The front desk help was great! They were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was great also and our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel was quiet and the beds and linens were comfortable and conducive to a good night's sleep!

Passing through on my way to a Wedding. Convenient to Interstate and very clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and the stay was great! This was easily the best Hotel in town, and the nicest stay I had along my three day journey. If I ever come back to AMES...I am definitely stopping back in again.

We checked in with John and he made sure that all the bases were covered - internet access info., pool area info., breakfast info., and a great recommendation for dinner (Olde Main Brewing Company). Then John handed me a business card from Trip Advisor - very cool. As a result, his card was my reminder to write a review after... More

Front desk staff most helpful. Recommended a great place to eat. When I discovered I had forgotten my shaving kit I was delivered necessary things in a matter of minutes after calling front desk. Nightly rate was better than others in Ames

Over several years I've been very pleased with this hotel, beginning when I was reserving a block of rooms for a large event, and more recently when trying to find several rooms for a smaller event on a difficult weekend (football weekend). The general manager worked closely with me to help me to find the accommodations I needed for my... More
