“Good hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2005

This hotel was a very nice hotel to stay with the family (husband and two under 5). We chose this place because we have been impressed with other Country Inn and Suites. The hotel was really busy the weekend we were there- I think Special Olympics golf was held nearby and also Day Out with Thomas the Tank Engine, but it did not hurt the service at all. Desk clerks were very nice and helpful. We also chose this hotel because it had a pool and spa. Did a lot of swimming and loved the pool area. Towels were always available, and the spa was HUGE- the biggest I've ever seen. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was nice. A lot of choices, which was great for the kids. There was plenty of seating also. We would stay here again if ever in the area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2005

We had no problems or complaints during our mid-May 2005 stay, nor did family members staying across the hall. We stayed in a first-floor suite and it was quite roomy. Room was clean and, as far as our use, in order. Cookies and coffee were always available in the lobby for those who need or want them. Breakfast buffet included hot items, though some seemed a bit wilted from sitting for a long time. Afternoon happy hour, held in the same room as breakfast buffet (sort of a weird conversion in which alcohol is plopped on countertops), is available. Note: drinks (including soft drinks) were not complimentary, but not unreasonable. We did not use the pool or rec areas.

Typically satisfactory Country Inn experience. We'd stay again if in town and it had available n/s rooms.

My husband and I stayed at the Country Inn and Suites from April 1-3, 2005 because we were attending a wedding in Ames. In general I have been impressed with most Country Inn and Suites, and this one is no exception. The rooms are good sized, the bathroom is good sized (the bath tub seemed smaller than normal though) and the free continental breakfast is better than the average continental breakfast! You can expect scrambled eggs, hashbrown potatoes, biscuits and gravy, waffles, doughnuts, yogart, etc.

The hotel itself was kept up very well - it was clean and well maintained. Although I did not use the pool or whirlpool, it seemed clean and decent. Plus, there were always free cookies to eat right by the front desk with free coffee.

I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for something decent and clean in the Ames area.
