Tabatha was a great help the whole time we stayed at the hotel and shared places to eat and gave us ideas on what we could do in Ames while we were staying. She also made sure we had everything for out room and that we were all set for the weekend.

They had a line of people waiting to check in while the single clerk answered question after question for phone caller after caller. Why were those people more important than people waiting that were actual customers?

Had trouble finding a room. Tabitha the clerk that helped me, went above and beyond to make sure I had a room and anything else I needed. She also assisted me with reservations for my next two future stays. Couldn't have asked for better service.

Tabatha was exceptionally helpful with any questions asked and was very pleasant. Employees overall were very nice and pleasant. The breakfast selection was also very good and they provided a wide variety of food.

The hotel was nice but the we did not feel that the price (235.00) in any way was worth the one night away. The beds are pretty small for two people to sleep in. They probably should have had more than one person working at the front desk considering the hotel was booked.

Nice but older hotel. Very friendly staff. Clean rooms, nice breakfast with lots of choices. Have stayed there several times, a couple of times for over a week, and been very comfortable. Close to restaurants on Duff avenue, and close to Iowa State University.

I don't know where to start. I am critically ill, just knocked down from terminal. These guys and girls have been wonderful for eveything. Extra pillows to keep me propped up. , etc. Tabatha noticed me struggling at breakfast and offered assistance, but made me SMILE! She has been available to me every morning this week for help.

We drove up to Ames for a one day meeting, and wanted a place near our meeting site, as well as easy to find and dine from. The Hampton worked fine. Rooms were typical Hampton. Clean and comfy, but nothing over the top. Internet was slow it seemed. TV had many, many channels. If you needed or wanted to watch... More

Everything was good. I decided to stay at the Hampton based on the fact that I have had good experience at them in the past. I was not disappointed on this trip. Everyone was friendly, helpful and the service was great.

We usually stay here when in Ames, about twice a year. The Staff is always friendly as was Tabatha when we checked in. Have tried other Hotels in the area but think the Hampton Inn is the best. If we had any complaint at all, the room was a little small. Had two double bed. Will go with the King... More
