Recently ,my son had knee surgery in Ames Iowa. We stayed at the Grandstay in a room for handicapped individuals before and after his surgery. This place is wonderful. The staff is so helpful. The room was on the 3rd floor but there was an elevator. The room was huge with a complete kitchen and a shower which could be... More

Rooms are great with a kitchen, living room, bed room and bath. Quiet, clean and well maintained. The bed was too saggy for my taste and the pillows very stiff. Lack of a dresser in the bedroom was also inconvenient. Daily breakfasts were well stocked and offered a good variety of food. Staff was attentive and friendly.

We are local residents and were welcomed in after a house fire one evening when they made accomodations for 3 of us and our two dogs on one of the coldest nights this winter. The next day they moved us to a larger suite to fit our needs better. What started out as a 1 week stay turned into 3... More

We were glad we could help ease the stress of being displaced from your home. It was a pleasure to have you and your two well-behaved dogs stay with us! Please keep GrandStay in mind if you have visiting relatives or have any other need for hotel accommodations in the future! More

A great extended place to stay with comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Rates were reasonable and the morning breakfast was always good. The pool and hot tub were open till midnight and there was good restaurants nearby. I will definitely be staying there again when I am back in Ames.

We stayed over the Thanksgving holiday while visiting local relatives. Our suite accomodated 3 teenagers, two parents and a dog. For five people we could have used more space for suitcases, hangers, etc.The small kitchenette was helpful although poorly stocked (not enough dishes, pans, no paper towels, and a very small half-height bar refrigerator). The price was a bit high... More

This property is clean, is nicely furnished, and all rooms have a full kitchen. This last feature was important for my son and his family because he has a child with food allergies, and the family requires a full kitchen for food preparation. (*Note: The dishes are in the dish washer, not the cabinets.) Other good features: It's a quiet... More

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times and have always enjoyed my stay. We have a toddler and having the mini kitchen is a big plus. The rooms are always clean and the hotel is in great condition. The breakfast isn't anything special but it is "free" food that comes with fairly cheap rates for what you... More

Visiting Ames for a campus visit, I wanted a hotel that would provide a suite for my son and I. Grandstay Ames was clean, convenient to anything we had planned, and had a suite that was a good layout for us. The queen bed was comfortable, and the pull-out sofa was adequate for a teenager. Having a television in the... More
