The staff at this hotel are outstanding. The front desk clerks were very helpful. The breakfast food was good. The hotel is located right near the interstate. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable.

Our family just spent a weekend at the hotel. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by the modern decor and colors in the lobby. The check in process was quick and we got a nice room on the second floor. Our room was equally as nice and modern as the lobby. In fact, my kids said the colors were... More

It is close to the campus (not in the campus) but away enough to be quiet. The staff were very friendly and rooms are clean. The breakfast has enough food and choice but basic things. For a short stay it is OK.

This is a nice clean hotel with an awsome free hot breakfast. We stayed there for three nights and had a different hot breakfast each morning. Rooms were clean and the hallway traffic at night was pretty quiet... It was college "move in" weekend and this place was amazing!

Stayed a Friday & Saturday night in a King Suite. It was a little tight in the room when the sofa sleeper was opened for the 3rd in our group. We asked the housekeeper to put sheets on it but she forgot so we had to ask for them later. The Inn is being renovated & is looking good. Breakfast... More

This was our first night on the road of a week long vacation. We had just done the train ride in Boone and wanted to check in and the kids were ready for a dip in the pool. We are a family traveling with two children, ages 7 and 4. Check-in went smoothy, I can't complain of the price since... More

In Ames for the weekend for a basketball tournament. I had not stayed at a Fairfield before but was quite impressed with this one. It appears extremely new. There isn't a lot of places immediately nearby, but close enough. You could tell the newness by the softness of the carpet, especially in the hall ways. The rooms were very nice... More

I was a bit apprehensive about booking this location coming from Wichita, KS. We checked in the night of the bad storms and it was a bit sketchy for awhile. We never lost power but could tell we were in the midst of a upper midwest thunderstorm. Being from Florida we are used to storms but not on this level.... More
