The Ames Americinn is a standard member of the Americinn chain, they meet the expectations I have of that chain. The main entrance has a nice "prairie house" decor, breakfast area and balcony above to the second floor. The staff are limited as is the trend in budget hotels, though they were generally kind and helpful.
Our room was a small suite. The entry room had a sleeper sofa, table with chairs, coffee table (that;s where the linens hide!) a TV and a refreshment center with fridge and micro. French doors separate this room from the main sleeping area. The vanity is outside the bath/toilet room. Our king sized bed was acceptable, though not especially great. Cable TV was standard, and wifi was provided free.
The pool is in a great sized room off the side of the building, as with most Americinn's. The room was COLD... yes it is January, but just a touch of heat would have been nice. The water was warm, so we still had a good time with the kids.
Breakfast is continental with a waffle machine. The coffee stinks, plan on a stop on your way out.
This hotel was a stopover point for us on a longer trip, but I am told that it is a prime location for Iowa State U folks.
