I have few complaints about my stay at Hampton. The building is spotless and the staff helpful. The breakfast was truly outstanding with many rotating items, hot and cold, meat and fruit. The breakfast was definitely the shining star of this experience. The fitness center was miniscule, but they have an agreement with a local gym that allows you to... More

I do not mean that insultingly - you know you are choosing a Hampton, a mid-tier Hilton chain. It is quite good for the price, but does not have all marble or 50,000 count sheets. My bed was comfortable, the air conditioner worked quite well to keep me cool (as I prefer), and the front desk staff was smiling on... More

The title says it all. The Ames location is nice and the staff is usually pretty friendly and helpful. The internet is terrible however. Even simple web-browsing/ e-mails can take a long time, and if you have to download a PDF or something similar you could be waiting for a while. The fitness center is also quite deplorable. If they... More

We stayed at the Hampton Inn Ames during a basketball tournament weekend. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Kids enjoyed the pool area. Only negative was the small breakfast area--thee was never any room to sit and no one seemed to be in a hurry to leave so others could sit down.

Way to costly for what it was. Room very small. Would suggest drop prices about 30%. Other hotels in area much cheaper. Location easy access to 35 freeway but not lot of choices of places to eat within easy drive.

Hotel staff was excellent, but hotel is in need of updating. Room had a slight musty smell. Overall I might stay if there are no other option in the area. Breakfast was fine with many hot and cold options.

This is the loudest hotel I have every stayed at. The front desk staff was so unhelpful and rude. Quiet hours and pool close time were not enforced. The soundproofing needs major work- the door to the hall was like paper, and the people above us sounded like elephants. The only thing that was good was the breakfast food and... More

Tabitha, Precilla, and Brennan are awesome! Case and point: on a longer-than-expected business trip, my co-worker got a bit homesick. When I told Tabitha and Precilla, they made a "care package" for him and delivered it to his room. He was very surprised, and it definitely made a big difference! Brennan also made sure we had cold milk to go... More
