I am in the process of moving to Ames and Tabatha has been extremely helpful with tips of places to see and where to eat. Tabatha is very friendly and welcoming when you arrive to the hotel. She is a valuable asset to the Hampton Inn.

I was traveling through IA heading north on I-35 when the rain and wind made it just to dangerous to continue while on a motorcycle trip. I picked this place because of the Hampton quality and they had the biggest cover for guest check in.. The guy at the front desk welcomed me there, even though I walked in literally... More

We stayed at Hampton Inn because it is close to my sons home and the hospital where my daughter-in law was to give birth to her son. Hampton Inn is really a nice place to stay. It is really close to were my wife and I need to be at.

This is a nice hotel with rates lower than the Des Moines area hotels (30 miles away). Great people, nice facility. Only one restaurant in walking distance, but town is only 3-4 minutes away by car. Pool area very nice, breakfast better than usual for this chain.

Two potential ISU students and their Moms traveled to Ames last week and stayed at the Hampton Inn. The rooms were clean, the people working at the front desk were friendly and very helpful and Miss Lisa, who was in charge of breakfast, was a ray of sunshine in our day. We'd definitely stay here again on a visit to... More

We stayed here over a weekend, and the hotel was full of school aged girls in town for a competition. While the pool was small and crowded, the noise in the hallways was minimal. Our room was next to the elevator; luckily we could not hear it except the suitcases moving on the tile floor. The vending machines were just... More

We have tried different hotels during our past visits- usually Hampton Inn is a good bet. This one was okay- looking and smelling kind of old- our room wasn't the suite we thought it was- we had thought it was two rooms , not a couch with a bed in a bigger room- but it worked. Bed was comfortable- not... More
