We have stayed here many times over the last 5 years while our daughter attended ISU and will continue as our next daughter also attends ISU. Very conveniently located. A few hours after departure, the front desk called to report they found my expensive memory foam pillow. Thankfully we were still in the area and able to retrieve it. We... More

My son had a school event at Iowa State University and his school reserved the room for us, which was great. Staff was great and genuine on check-in and it's nice to have coffee and cookies available. Our room showed normal wear and tear on doors and certain parts of the wall, but it didn't take away from the comfort.... More

We love Hampton Inns in general, and this time it was no different. Friendly, helpful staff, clean room, nice breakfast, and good internet access. We left an ice pack in the room, and they called to tell us we left it. Something as small as an ice pack, and they called! Awesome :)

Checked into the Hampton Inn on Friday night for an overnight stay and attend graduation ceremony early on Saturday morning. Hotel was fine. Just an older Hampton Inn. Rooms were clean, but it could use a little remodeling. But there apparently is a new Hampton Inn and Suites being built down the street.

Needed to locate a Hilton property close to the University campus and other Hampton's were reasonable. This location should be replaced by a NEW Hampton around the corner, which will be a good thing. The room was comfortable but the building was just a little dated. Staff was helpful and all in all, the location was just okay.

I really enjoyed my stay at Ames, Iowa's Hampton Inn. The staff was amazing! Miss Lisa, the chef, warmed my day with her bright smile and warm hospitality.

Was a good stay. Rooms clean, spacious. would stay again. The continental breakfast was very good. Only negative remark is the hotel is not pet friendly. Was in Ames again this month, had to stay somewhere else because they don't accept pets.

Traveled to Ames for business. No hassle with government rate. Staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. Very nice breakfast. My colleague enjoyed the free coffee and cookies. Location was very convenient. Parking lot seemed safe and although the other guests appeared to be 90% male, 10% female, I felt very safe.

The room thermastat was apparently broken as the room became a spa with room temp at 82 degrees although the desired setting was at 68 degrees. This went well with the lumpy and hard bed. Couldn't wait to start my day and get out of that room
