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

This is a good place when visiting students at the University. The property is completely non-smoking, which is really nice. Location is good. It's a little expensive, but all hotels in Ames seem to be expensive.

Enjoyed our stay at the hotel because of the friendly staff - especially Lisa at breakfast. We had a second story 2 double bedroom. It was move in weekend at Iowa State and the hotel was busy, but we still had good service. The hot coffee and cookies with milk was a fantastic touch when we got there that evening,... More

We had to fit 5 into the room because it was the State Fair on the weekend we were coming to the area. It was difficult to find a room but it was worth it. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The room was fresh and clean.

The hotel staff was helpful and polite. The room smelled a bit of old cigarette smoke but it is now no-smoking. Other than that is is a quiet and convenient place to stay with lots of parking. There is a gas station, truck stop and Subway within walking distance and a Thiesens store, other than that you need a vehicle.

The front desk staff were absolutely lovely. Very helpful and welcoming. The lobby was newer and very nice. The hallways and the room had a faintly bad smell. The room was clean and linens were nice. The big downside was the cooling unit in the room which was incredibly loud...it would intermittently kick off so we could sleep for a... More

I love Hampden and was a bit disappointed. I had been on a road trip for days, so I was fairly exhausted and was just looking for a place to stay close to the interstate. The bed was extremely comfortable and I love the duvet. There is a nice TV in the room, and I love that there were charging... More

The check in was professional, efficient, and very friendly. They gave us a 'quiet' room as a lot of kids were there. The king sized bed was excellent. One of the best night's sleep I've had in a long time. The shower was very nice but the drain was very slow. Hopefully, that will be fixed soon. The location is... More

I stay at a lot of hotels of this level when I travel (frequently) so I consider myself a good judge of what's "standard" at this level. This was substandard. On entering the lobby, everything looks great: the lobby has been very recently renovated. When I checked in, I waited, and waited...and waited while the clerk had a long phone... More
