ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS HOTEL!!! The staff was very courteous and helpful. Room was excellent, quiet and very comfortable. It was great to relax by the pool and spa. Great stay. Will be coming back to Iowa every year and this will be the only hotel I will stay at. Our home away from home.

- Suite had insufficient lights to illuminate the entire bedroom area. - Toilet in room clogged every other flush, with using the slightest amount of toilet tissue... I had to borrow a plunger from the front desk on more than one occasion to get it unclogged and useable again. - The fireplace in the room was not functional, which isn't... More

we needed to stay close to my daughters to help with a home improvement project This worked out well was comfortable and close even got a better rate thru AmericInn than online booking sites. My dog gave it a good rating also.

our visit to Ames was for a Vet School reunion and we had a very good time and we were very comforted to know that our hotel room was excellent and there would be no problems. We appreciated the breakfast with all the warm food that we were able to start our day off right. Thank you Americinn !

Had a room with 2 queens. The room was clean. Staff was very nice. Complimentary breakfast every morning that is average but good to have. Indoor pool and jacuzzi. I was here for 6 nights and for a motel it was fine.

The only real problem for me was the hard mattress, poor internet strength, and the low water pressure for the shower. Other than that, I think the service was good, and the staff were friendly. Next time though, I think I will try out another hotel.

2nd time here. After moving child #1 into college this was our stop for #2. Very close to Iowa State University. Like someone else said, not much to look at from outside but inside is very nice. Room has fridge and microwave. Breakfast (free) and was decent. First day had mini omelets and sausage but no pastry. 2nd day no... More

Overall hotel is nice, typical AmericInn. Hotel appears to be in a newer section of Ames with numerous other hotels but limited services such as restaurants, gas stations, etc. This particular one we chose because they are Pet Friendly and location to the interstate. Unfortunately they have rooms set aside for people traveling with pets. The room was not up... More

Though we found out the pool was broken when we checked in they had an immediate solution that worked out. We were able to go next door to use pool at a sister hotel. The gal taking care of breakfast was extremely attentive to her job, I was impressed. Nothing glamorous but nothing bad about this hotel.

The website stated that it had been completely renovated and the picture showed an updated outside. We definitely did not get either of those things....the outside was very old looking and the parking lot was poorly lit. Our first room had ants so we requested a new room and it was fine. The carpets looked old and felt dirty. Our... More
