Spent the night in this hotel because our usual hotel was booked with state high school athletic events. The room was very comfortable and included a fridge and microwave. Very spacious bathroom. The breakfast consisted of bagel and pastry type items. The beds were very high. I am short and had a hard time getting in and out of them.... More

Was at the Fairfield Inn in early December 2014 while in the area for business. My room was clean and very large. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room furnishings updated and very functional, the bathroom huge and well appointed. Check in was efficient, quick and easy...can't ask for anything more. Breakfast was fine with lots of healthy selections in... More

Easy to find, right off of I-35. Set back from the road in a commercial area. Plenty of parking. Got a nice welcome when I came in. Commercial area, lots of restaurants nearby. The room was fine with the exception of some sloppy housekeeping....there was a room key left on top of the TV, and most interestingly a small "airplane... More

I've stayed at Fairfields mostly for the last 15 years. Recently I've gone away from them and gone to Hampton Inns because I didn't think maintenance and management of Fairfield Inns were up to par. The Ankeny Fairfield might bring me back as a customer. Well maintained and great service/management. Bravo! I feel like I got a good value on... More

Breakfast waffle mix so thick and cumbersome..product was too dry and cardboardy to eat. Brochure tells of Jimmy Dean sausage sandwiches to be available..did not see any. Heater in room noisy and kept me awake with its cycling. Beds way to high in the air for a short legged person. I am sure that the beds are made taller for... More

My sons and I stayed at this hotel in room 220 on Friday, November 7th for one night. The staff was very friendly and the room was very clean and quiet, and the bed was comfortable too. There was also a nice selection for the complementary breakfast, and it also had a very good Mexican restaurant within walking distance (just... More

I stayed here while attending an ISU football game in Ames. Only 25 minute drive to and from stadium Room and hotel were very clean. TV was flat screen. Free wi-fi. Breakfast was OK, not as nice as other free breakfasts at Holiday Inn or Best Western. Very new hotel. Would stay again.

I am a Marriott Platimum Premier member and stay at over 100 hotel rooms a year. It is nice when one makes you feel at home when you are on the road. I have stayed at this hotel off and on for over 7 years and it requires me to drive 20 minutes but it is worth it. Jim the... More

Originally scheduled for 11 Nights, but checked out after 3 nights. The reasons were; wasn't recognized by status check in by Jamie and poor customer service, HARD Beds, outdated furniture, window air units do not keep temperature well (at least in my room), missed wake up call, and the biggest of all 1980s Internet speed. I will stop there. Since... More

We stayed 7-28-14 thru 8-1-14. The hotel is easy to find, its right off the highway. Hotel personnel sere great, very friendly, and helpful. The rooms were made up and clean every day. The breakfast was excellent, a wide variety of foods, juices and coffee. I really can't say anything but good things. The city of Ankeny is clean and... More
