3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is your typical Hampton Inn. It's been updated, which really helps the aesthetics. The staff is very nice and the rooms are clean. Bathroom is an odd layout, but it helps a small bathroom feel larger. Cons - breakfast area is part of the small lobby, so it's a little cramped and awkward. Mattresses are a little hard... More

Very clean and it looks like recently updated. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed at the hotel while on our way to Minnesota from Missouri. The access from the highway is very convenient.

Very nice, extremely quiet location with nicely updated rooms. Staff is helpful and friendly. Easy on and off the freeway and close to Des Moines but MUCH easier to get to and quieter (the Des Moines Hampton Inn is near the airport and has NO places close to eat).

Nice place to stay in AMES when in town on business. Located on the west end of the action but close enough to get to everything. Hotel offers everything a traveling person would need. Hampton Inns are a nice place to stay.

I was in town for a week for a dance competition and the people and service were above and beyond what I expected. The hotel was clean, the people were helpful and friendly and our breakfast host during the week was a gem! I would definitely stay here again if in the area!!!

We made a college visit this past week and stayed at this location based on reviews and affordability. Knowing we really just need a place to sleep as we were busy all day, it was a great price. The surprise was the service was top notch from the moment we checked in. They had pie and ice cream that evening... More
