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

My wife and I were attending a workshop at Iowa State University. We stayed there for a night. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. The breakfast was also very good. Will stay there again if I was in Ames.

If you are looking for cleanliness and comfort at a reasonable price - this place is perfect. If you require a great breakfast, you might want to look elsewhere. The room was wonderfully clean! I was very comfortable but my teenager woke up with a backache from her bed. Bathroom was spotless. Temperature control was perfect. If you are looking... More

Got a room for one night. Booked a suite for under 150 and was pleasantly surprised. The motel is modest, but loved the quietness of the room. The suite is above the desk area, so very little noise. Couldn't hear anything from the pool area at all. The bathroom doesn't have a fan and the breakfast wasn't too fancy, but... More

Great value at reasonable rates. Rooms very comfortable with internet Wi-Fi. Pool and spa well maintained with adult swim time. Breakfast was very good, love the waffles and extras. Good location and adequate parking available also.

I always make it a point when I am in Ames for a conference to book my hotel room at the AmericInn Hotel. The service is always friendly, efficient and prompt to please. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The only thing I did notice was there was no desk or chairs so I could work on business related... More

As I walked in the room the window in the room was wide open and it was freezing. The whole room, especially the bathroom reeked of smoke. There was a pubic hair in the shower. The first bed as you entered the room squeaked with every move my kids made. super loud and annoying. I slept on the bed closest... More

I stay at this location 2 or 3 times a year and I've always left satisfied. The staff is friendly, helpful and willing to work within my needs and my schedule. Whatever I am looking for, they go out of their way to provide and/or help me find. THAT in and of itself is a winner for me - that... More
