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. The wifi was also pretty fast. My son hooked up his Playstation and did not have any problems with the wifi system. We were on the... More

We "settled" for staying here as my first choices for hotels in the area were all at least $50.00 more and we were staying 4 nights. What a pleasant surprise! Large, clean, quiet room. It's close to the highway but road noise wasn't a problem at all. We ended up having to leave one night earlier than planned and this... More

Room was clean, beds were comfortable. Breakfast was hot and had good variety. The internet was fast and easy to connect. Staff was nice and hotel is far enough from the highways so that road noise was not an issue

It is a clean and well kept hotel. Staff was great, very helpful. Breakfast was good and they had someone there at all times to refill anything that ran out. The fitness room only had one eliptical and one treadmill but it did have a yoga mat, and that was appreciated. Air conditioner was loud. I guess that could be... More

We only stayed one night, but I was impressed. My number one concern is cleanliness and this was perfect. Staff was very friendly and accomidating. Sterred us to the points of interest, such as the Reiman garden and local restaurants. Offers a breakfast that was ok. I really only cared about coffee but there was a variety offered. I would...

Found in an area with several other hotels and restaurants. Smaller than many Hamptons where we have stayed. Great staff, room was reasonably clean, but a bit musty. Overall, we would return if we travel this way again and we recommend it to others.

Need updating. For a Hampton, this is one of the older, worn out ones. The carpet is dirty. Chair and ottoman have dirt stain all over. Toilet seat had urine in the hinges...and that's because the cleaning people do not take time to clean it...no other reason. My white socks were almost black on the bottom after walking on the...

I stayed here when attending some meetings at Iowa State University. Although located on the East side of Ames (the University is on the West side), it is easy to get to the University from here. The hotel is located convenient to Interstate 35 as well as U.S. 30 (east-west highway) and U.S. 69 (north-south highway). It is near the... More
