We stayed here on our way to Minneapolis. It is really close the I-35 so you don't have to detour much. The place is new and very clean. The little pool was fun for my 3 yr old and there were a few toys on the pool. The breakfast is great for what is it. There are many options. The... More

I stayed here twice this spring when in town to visit family. Friendly staff checked me in quickly and efficiently. Room good. Wifi good. Complimentary hot breakfast in the morning was good. Location good.

Fairfield inn and suites is quite close from I 35 & also 5 minutes drive to Iowa State University. Hotel seems new. Rooms are fairly basic but comfortable with mini-fridge & microwave. Beds were bit high but comfortable. Breakfast was decent & staff was attentive - right from front desk & also during breakfast.

I stayed here for two nights for a business trip. This is a fairly new hotel well outside the downtown / ISU areas in Ames, just off the interstate. The room was new, clean and relatively well appointed, with a fairly large bathroom by Fairfield standards. Staff were friendly and helpful, though I skipped the morning food offerings while I...

This property must be no more than five years old or so, but it's already been updated to like-new condition! Located just off I-35 and Hwy 30, it is a tad isolated from Ames' downtown and other shopping, but this district of town is where many of the hotel brands are now locating, so it's all developing nicely in this...

This is a very clean and welcoming hotel. For a mid level hotel I can not complain. The room was bigger than most and it was clean, even the bathroom. Which is where most of the nasty dirt normally is in hotels. The price was perfect around 100 a night. Only complaint is there isn't much to eat close by... More

Some of the things helpful for me (and maybe to you?) : - cleanliness: better than average - water pressure: good! Nice shower head, plenty of elbow room - breakfast: great, if you're not gluten-free. For me, there were omelets one day, scrambled eggs the next, with cheese and salsa. Ommelets were pre-made and kept in a warming dish. Also,... More

This is a very clean and comfortable hotel. The staff was, for the most part, friendly and accommodating. Everything one would expect from a Marriott - it is really too bad they chose to use such shoddy construction. You can hear EVERYTHING that goes on outside your room. I had only one neighbor, but I could hear every long, emotional... More

Haven't stayed at a Fairfield in a while, but we were in town on a college visit and chose here. It was a great choice, and if the kid chooses here, this will be our stay of choice! The room was as expected and very clean and in good condition. The beds were also comfortable and room location was great... More

We arrived late and left early the next morning, so we didn't do much other than sleep and eat breakfast. Breakfast was OK; I've definitely had better. As far as Fairfield Inns go, this one is probably about average. I paid $109 for the night, which seems a little pricey considering the age, cleanliness, and decor, but the Hampton Inn... More
