We stayed here during our visit (from Minneapolis) to the IA State Fair which was about 40 minutes away. This is a newer property and it was spotless! The beds were very comfortable with 2 firm and 2 soft pillows on each bed. The bathroom was also extremely clean. Breakfast was the usual Comfort Inn fare, but with a few... More

We were in Story City for a meeting. Chose Comfort Inn for convenience. The front desk staff person was terrific at check-in. She had obviously noted my room requests (3rd floor--which is nonsmoking--and at the far end of the hotel). We had a good sized room with windows that open! The furnishings were in great condition. The bed was comfortable.... More

This is a great find, located about 15 minutes north of Ames. The staff are exceedingly friendly and the place is nice. Unfortunately, the DQ and the McDonalds here at the same exit are a joke and I wouldn't consider eating or snacking there.

Picked the location by mistake but it was one of the best, inexpensive hotel/motels we've stayed at. Clean, with great amenities and helpful staff. Only slight problem was the WiFi was, at times, intermittent.

This property is squeaky clean, has very friendly staff people and the manager, Roy Watson, bends over backward to help and please his guests. He is a "real" person and will do what it takes to make sure each guest has a pleasant stay. The breakfast is excellent...several hot items along with all the other expected cold offerings. The rooms... More

We stayed here for a family reunion. A great location just off I-35. Very easy to get to. Large private room with a nice King bed. Always appreciate having a refrigerator in our room. Nice pool and exercise room. Great hot breakfast. Will definitely stay here again!

This hotel was a stopover for a family trip. I booked this hotel because of the positive feedback on Tripadvisor. The hotel is conveniently located right off of the interstate and near gas stations and restaurants. The rooms were spacious and modern. The wi-fi was fast and reliable. The entire hotel was well maintained and very clean. The breakfast was... More

Expected average and got more. We had king bed and when we arrived in our room it was spacious with fridge, microwave, flat screen, desk, couch , and large bathroom. This might be largest room we've ever had traveling . The town closes down at night except for the all night gas station so be prepared . Tiny hot tub... More

Great little hotel with a convenient location, clean comfortable rooms and excellent staff. I can't say enough good things about the staff. We were a large party (several rooms) and everyone was very patient, kind, and accommodating even with multiple requests. The only problem was the strong cigarette smoke smell in the hallway. We were told they were in the... More
