I stayed here for a full week for business. I stayed in a room with a king bed. It was clean and more than enough room for one person. Really enjoyed having a desk with a really nice office chair. Made it very comfortable to complete work in my room. Breakfast wasn't amazing, but it was pretty good for a... More

Our room was not ready when we... More

The hotel exit is right off 35W. We were able to checkin early. The facilities and our room were clean and fresh. Two queen beds were very fluffy and comfortable. Free breakfast was very good! Staff was very helpful.

Top notch hotel in this price range. Super friendly staff, eager to help. Great breakfast with a hostess that will have you in stitches and make sure you have plenty of good things to eat. The fitness room is very small, but met my needs. The pool area was clean and well cared for.

We had a wonderful stay here in Ames. The front desk workers were very friendly and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The beds are a little small but it worked for us. The breakfast in the morning offered a variety of food which included fresh fruit!

I would recommend this property to anyone traveling in this area. The rooms were very clean and comfy. Very quite so much so it was if we were the only ones staying. The staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast lady was so very nice. She will be one person I will remember for a long time. I wish I would... More

This is not the first time we have stayed here. The front desk remembered our last visit. The room was ready on checkin. The room was clean and this time the heater was working.
