excellent. Our room was very spacious, even with 2 queen beds. I m guessing from the bathroom with it's walk in shower and available chair, that our room could have been converted over to a handicap accessible room. At any rate, I thought it was awesome.

I travel a lot on the "state rate" so I can't stay at just any hotel. I choose AmericInn because I know they have a nice breakfast, a nice pool, clean rooms and friendly service. I wish their bedding was a little thicker as I like to turn the air on cool and bundle up in the warm covers.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and found our rooms and the entire hotel clean and family friendly. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The beds where very comfortable. We found the location for our purpose to be perfect. I would highly recommend this hotel to both business and families. I plan to return to this hotel... More

I don't usually sleep well in a bed other than my own, but I slept well the night we stayed there. We happened to come as they were celebrating their renovation. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was satisfying.

Our stay at Americinn in Ames waw underwhelming. The staff were fine, but not enough to keep up with a full hotel with lots of youngsters there for swimming and basketball. Adults were partying into the night outside our room and made it difficult for us to sleep. Noises were heard from neighboring rooms. Pool was not clean and towels... More

My wife was pleased with the cleanliness of the room. There was no bad odor in the room. This motel compared well to others. The breakfast had a lot of touches not found in other places. There was a staff person tending to keeping the items stocked. They had a large supply of cartons of milk instead of a pitcher... More

The breakfast quality was extremely poor. The available wi-fi was not available unless you were in the lobby. The pool desperately needed to be cleaned, and the hottub was broken/cold for several of the days during the stay.

I have stayed in several hotels in Ames, but the AmericInn is my favorite. The property is quite new, and well maintained. The indoor pool is clean and easy to use. The staff is friendly and recognizes me because I stay there every 6 months. They take care of my concerns and confirm my reservations by e-mail. The hot breakfast... More
