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

Went to visit my son at Iowa State and wanted a cheaper alternative to our normal hotel (Holiday Inn Express on University). Although this is about 15 minutes from campus, it was quiet, clean, easy to find and affordable. The bed was comfortable, the temperature of the room was perfect and the wifi worked great. Will definitely consider staying here... More

The bed was short and hard. I'm only 5'10" and my feet hung over. The eggs and sausage were frozen microwaved and nasty. The rest of the breakfast was OK. The hot tub was luke warm, like you would want the pool to be. The pool was so cold we couldn't spend any time in it. All the staff was... More

We have stayed here numerous times starting when our son was going to Iowa State. We now visit him in Chicago, and use it as a midway stop. Rooms are clean, breakfast always delicious, coffee fresh, and all staff courteous and friendly.

My family got together for a post holiday weekend. We rented several room plus the party room adjacent to the pool. This was a perfect set up and we were so impressed by the friendly and helpful staff. The lobby is very warm and welcoming and cozy on a chilly winter night. We'll be coming back!

This is a very nice, clean establishment, with amenities that are top notch and the best kept secret is the affordable rates and exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. I come to Ames often and will make this my newest go-to place to stay. Hats off to the Ames AmericInn!

During a 3-night stay right after Christmas, we were impressed by the treatment we received from the desk staff. Their friendly and helpful approach made the stay all the more pleasant. This is definitely the motel we'll choose when we need one in Ames.

We stayed here to bring in the new year. The pool was was and clean. They have a pool table for ones that didn't want to swim. The rooms were clean and comfy beds. Staff was very friendly. The breakfast was the best we have had in a hotel. Thank you for the great experience!

We go to the Ames area quite often and always stay at the AmericInn. They always have a very nice breakfast and clean rooms. We have never had a bad experience. All of our families prefer to stay at this one, and the kids love the pool area.
