My family of 4 stayed here overnight and wished that we could have stayed longer. The rooms are spacious with plenty of hanging space for clothing. My son slept on the fold out couch and even with the couch out it was easy to move around. There were two TV's, one in the sleeping area and one in the living... More

This is our family's favorite hotel! The 2 bedroom suite is spacious--like an apartment. We slept in a separate room from our kids. The living room has a sleeper sofa, and each room had a TV. The kitchen is more than sufficient, complete with dishes and extras. There is a Kmart and Aldi nearby for shopping. The breakfast has hot... More

Thanks for the great review! You described our two-bedroom suite even better than I could! We're glad you enjoyed the added privacy of having your own bedroom, yet could gather in the living room area to enjoy a favorite TV show. We look forward to seeing you again if your travels bring you back to Ames, IA! More

Great place to stay, very clean and nicely laid out. Staff is the best you find anywhere. Great location, close to university, and easy access to shopping areas and downtown. We have stayed here many times.

This is where I stayed for work. the internet was fast, room very clean. I was able to cook and the mattresses are comfortable, in fact it was new. The staff was friendly and helpful as well. The only negative is the elevator is slow and it could use a little tlc. It is an older hotel and is dated.

We wound up here because we waited too long to book our hotel, and we have some special criteria. It was a bit pricey for the area, but not terrible. It was advertised as having four rooms, and it did, but they were each very small. It would work fine for long term stays, complete with refrigerator, oven, microwave and... More

Terrible experience in just about every aspect. They have handicapped rooms on the third floor, which makes no sense - thankfully they haven't had a fire or anything yet. One of the windows had a black out curtain, but didn't wrap all the way around and it was so positioned that the sun came beating in through the side directly... More

We had never stayed at this chain previously and we were very pleasantly surprised! It was very clean and had a nice environment and they are pet friendly. We did not have any complaints, very satisfied.

I recently stayed at the GrandStay and loved my time there. The management is beyond terrific, and the staff is efficient and helpful. I felt very much at home there. And due to unfortunate circumstances, I didn't check in till a very late 3:00 a.m. Nonetheless, I was greeted by a kind and helpful front desk clerk. The bed was... More

I had reserved a two bedroom suite online, but when we arrived they had us in a one bedroom suite and didn't have any two bedroom ones left. So I asked for the one bedroom rate and the lady said "oh that is the one bedroom rate". I didn't buy that so I was prepared to talk to the manager... More
