Pool and hot tub were very nice and relaxing after a busy conference day. We were pleasantly surprised with our nice King Suite room. There were 2 TVs in the room. Great shower head for a nice shower. Very nice hot breakfast options along with cold cereal, yogurt, and some nice organic topping choices. Overall a very pleasant stay for... More

Don't waste your money on the Gateway (loud and unattractive) - this BW is smaller, clean, and the staff is wonderful. The staff is genuinely friendly and quietly attentive to details. There is a lovely living room area to read and drink coffee.

Well received with excelent service. Made to feel right at home. Extremely accomodating. Breakfast was plentiful and hit the spot. Would definately look at returning next year. My group had no problems that I am aware of. We used the lobby for our buisness meeting and it was perfect.

I will start with walking into the hotel you are greeted with a friendly helpful staff. The room was is a large comfortable room. The king size bed was great! I can't find one thing dirty in this room even the corners are clean. I like the sitting chair in the room and the refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. One... More

Every year we have an excellent time and the hotel is always fantastic. The front desk staff is always courteous and willing to help us with anything we need and... More

We stay at this motel when we visit Ames for Cyclone sports. Always friendly, open to late checkout, flawless rooms and very conveniently located to campus events and city dinning. We've used the pool and exercise room and business center. They have a great complimentary breakfast - eggs, sausage and waffles if your hungry or cereal, fruit and bagels for... More
