This is a very poor review but there have been a couple of nice and funny things happen too. Lets start with some good. We arrived early just before noon as my wife had work here in Ames. We could not get our room yet as it was not clean. This is fine I expected coming in this early that... More

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

The hotel staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. The room was spotless. The multiple charging stations were great. We've stayed in several Hilton hotels that weren't this well equipped and clean. Excellent job on the staff's part.

I am partial to Hampton Inns as I feel you can pretty much depend on them to meet basic expectations of being clean and comfortable.The hotel in Ames was no exception. Our room was clean, the air conditioning did a good job of keeping us cool with 90 plus outside, the hallways were quiet even though there were a number... More

For the price of the room........we expected more! Very small and dated!! Yes, I know they are building a new one but current patrons are being gouged! Two hours away you can stay at a very nice Hampton at a considerable lower rate and have more amenities! That being said...my mother always told me " If you can't say something... More

This is a small hotel with bathrooms in need of renovations. It's surprising that hotels are still using double beds, especially Hampton Inn. It was a place to sleep at a value for our overnight stay. Staff were incredibly nice as we've grown to expect with Hampton.

Thank you for your warm review about our Hampton! You are correct, Hampton is in the process of phasing out all double bedded guest rooms - and we can't wait to show you our new Hampton Inn and Suites Forever Young building set to open in 2016 that will feature all suite type guest rooms including queen and king beds!...

I stay at many Hampton Inn's. This one was very expensive, and as a woman, it was not always a very safe feeling. Door locks are not strong, breakfast area very small and no real business center (just a computer in the hallway).
