Stayed here two nights for a family funeral in Ames. Our family booked six rooms. I stay at a lot of Hamptons, and this one is like most... Clean, updated, smallish but comfortable rooms. The only thing I can think to complain about is the slow elevator. Staff was super friendly, especially Lisa, the breakfast hostess. As we met for... More

This hotel did a very good job of accommodating several members of our family on short.notice. We were called to Ames for the untimely passing of a family member. The rooms were in close proximity so we could visit easier. The rooms were clean and well appointed. Especially pleasing was the free hot breakfast. It was made even more pleasing... More

I can always count on Hampton's - quiet room, clean room, with a good breakfast. Staff is always helpful with recommendations for area restaurants and shops, if needed. When I travel, I always use my GPS to find the next Hampton on the road.

Overall very clean facility and friendly staff. Check in was quick. Had issue with noise that took two complaints before desk staff handled the situation. Good location and large breakfast was served with omelets, biscuits and gravy, waffles, fresh fruit, yogurt and cereal.

I stayed here for a full week for business. I stayed in a room with a king bed. It was clean and more than enough room for one person. Really enjoyed having a desk with a really nice office chair. Made it very comfortable to complete work in my room. Breakfast wasn't amazing, but it was pretty good for a... More

The hotel exit is right off 35W. We were able to checkin early. The facilities and our room were clean and fresh. Two queen beds were very fluffy and comfortable. Free breakfast was very good! Staff was very helpful.

Top notch hotel in this price range. Super friendly staff, eager to help. Great breakfast with a hostess that will have you in stitches and make sure you have plenty of good things to eat. The fitness room is very small, but met my needs. The pool area was clean and well cared for.
