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

We stayed here in February while visiting Iowa State with our daughter. The hotel was very clean and modern. Breakfast was very good - lots of choices. The rooms were clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable - I slept well. The staff were outstanding - very friendly and welcoming and able to help out. The rooms and bathrooms... More

Great hotel that we stay at when visiting our ISU student. Have stayed here several times over the past 18 months. Rooms are clean and quiet. Decor is new as are the room appointments. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good though that area can be busy at certain times of the morning. The hotel is only a few... More

Stayed one night with family. Hotel is absolutely beautiful, super clean. Staff was out-of-their-way friendly. Wonderfully soft beds; big tub/shower with high, adjustable shower head. Breakfast was filled with options (hard boiled & scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, waffles, muffins, breads/bagles, fruits, cereals, yogurt, juices, etc). Yes, it was a bit pricier, but well worth it. Should the need arise again,... More
