The rooms were clean but a bit smaller then at most holiday inn's. We were very near ISU which was a plus while going to visit a student there. I wish their was more food options near by then the restaurant.

Staying at the Holiday Inn in Ames was a great experience. We were most happy with their over night worker Sherri Graham, we came back from a night of fun and she was very friendly and always had a smile even if we may have been annoying her. She talked to us and just made the whole experience good.

No conditioner in bathroom and none available at front desk. As a positive there is a "constant fan" option on the ac that allows you to block out other noise and... More
