Let me start by saying I visited Iowa 100% bite free. We stayed for three nights for a wedding and at first glance, it looks like a run down motel. The gentleman at the front desk was nice and helpful enough but had to run over from across the street when we pulled up to help us. On the inside,... More

This was a nice room for the money. Only negative things--multiple cracked bathroom floor tiles around the toilet (harboring bacteria) and a stained bathtub. The mattress appeared brand new. Nice blackout drapes.

While driving through, I had an unplanned stop. I asked about the rate and was told $109. When I questioned why so high, I was told that there were no more rooms because of a college game. I later checked out the stories and could find nothing happening at both nearby Universities and the rate online was only around $70.

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here. The room was clean and spacious, and the decor felt up-to-date. It had a microwave, a fridge, and plenty of channels on the TV. The employees at the front desk were friendly, and we enjoyed the fact that we weren't spending nearly as much as we would if we were in Ames. Our... More

Very nice welcome from the night clerk. Room 116 with comfortable king bed was clean and the climate control was very good. Nice tub shower. Towels a bit thin but certainly serviceable. Free wifi with strong signal. Working flat screen TV with a few HD channels. Good little refrigerator (didn't use microwave). Bedside stands on both sides of the bed... More

This place is nice and clean. The rooms are a little dated, but they are clean and in good working order. We were on our way home from the Great River Road and were looking for a low-cost place to stay around Ames. This place was about $40 lower than the bargain hotels in Ames. The staff was just ok....
