This Quality Inn has recently been remodeled. The hotel is quiet, very clean and has an attached bar/restaurant. It's on the north side of Ames, but essentially all attractions are a short drive and easily accessible. The wireless worked well, flat screen tv with cable, mattresses were comfortable, bedding was recently updated, etc. The hotel staff were more than accommodating... More

We stayed here in October 2013 as a couple. The fellow at the front desk (Zak) was very rote in his comments, brief, and I wouldn't call him overly friendly. That's where the pleasant experience ends. Our room was on third floor, We entered the elevator, floor tiles crumbling and door making loud noises. Not a good first impression. Third... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in July 2013. I was on the second floor and the toilet in the room was broken and did not flush. I was moved to the first floor. During breakfast I found out the hard way that the Orange Juice was soured and the breakfast items were warm at best. The pool... More

We stayed here four nights last week. Easy place to find. They are renovating and the place is looking good. Breakfast is good in the am, and the area to east it in is nicely organized and the tables and chairs are in good shape. Our room faced the pool, and there was noise and a bit of light from... More

I found myself traveling through Ames, IA. Had some business in a nearby town very early in the morning before I flew out of DSM. Went to the hotel area off of highway 30 and Interstate 35. There was not a room to be found due to some local events. Finally drove through town and saw this place. Luckily they... More

We were INCREDIBLY disappointed in this hotel! The information doesn't tell you that the pool is only 3 ft deep in the deepest part. Plus, it was cold and smelled like pee! The courtyard around it was beautiful but the pool was a disaster!! We also tried to call the front desk to get more towels and blankets(only three towels... More

This is a very nice hotel however the pool is very cold. We were very excited about having a room so close to the pool so that was somewhat of a letdown. It would also be nice if this hotel had a spa however I don't think there is a spot for one. The rooms are nice I love to... More

Most of the rooms face out to the pool. Do not get one of these rooms! At 4:45 the staff starts clanging around to set up the continental breakfast and making as much noise as they possibly can. This area is adjacent to the pool. For over an hour until just before 6am the noise and their talking had to... More

I stayed at the Quality Inn in Ames IA in November 2012. They have just done a remodel of their facility. I enjoyed my stay. I had a clean comfortable room on the second floor that was quite even though it overlooked the pool. I did stay Monday through Thursday however so no overcrowded pool on the weekend. The breakfast... More
