“Excellent Place To Stay”

Everyone was friendly, we arrived 3 1/2 hours early and they checked to see if they had a room ready and we were checked in a room in a couple of minutes. Very clean room, great breakfast, nice people

We stayed here for the weekend while visiting our daughter at ISU. Very lovely, clean rooms. Comfortable beds. Very good breakfast with lots of choices. Our younger daughters enjoyed the pool and hit tub. We will definitely stay here again.

Thank you for the wonderful review of your stay at the AmericInn in Ames. We really enjoy having parents of ISU students stay with us, as several of our staff members are ISU alumni! It's great to connect with parents of the next generation of ISU students.

So glad you found the rooms to be clean and comfortable, the complimentary breakfast satisfying, and the amenities enjoyable!

Thanks! Hope to see you again soon!

In town for a basketball tournament. The room was clean and well lit. The hotel is on the small side. Halls are hard to walk two abreast, especially with luggage. Rooms are small, too. Bathroom is small but good shower height. The lobby is nice with a fireplace and various board games available and hot cookies. Breakfast is very simple and there is a lack of seating places for eating. Nice pool and even a pool table, but no workout area.

Staff was very helpful and very patient. Probably the best part of the hotel was the staff.

Dear Bob,

We are so happy that you found the AmericInn in Ames so comfortable and accomodating. This hotel has been undergoing major changes, including a facelift in the lobby. But the coziness of the lobby, including the fireplace, will remain!

We hope to see you the next time you are visiting Ames to attend an ISU basketball game!

Thanks!

I do not travel often and was not familiar with the name AmericInn. The curb appeal of the AmericInn Ames, Iowa location did not attract me but in searching for a reasonable, available room I booked a room with AmericInn for a weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the clean, comfortable accommodations and friendly staff. When visiting my daughter at ISU, I will definitely return to AmericInn Ames !

As a weekly stay, the room was quiet and clean when I arrived and remained so during my week. Very good service and great breakfast. Staff was polite and friendly and the check in and check out went very smoothly. I enjoyed my stay.

We stayed on a very busy weekend .. hotel was clean.. breakfast was good and well stocked even though the motel was full. What made the stay best of all was the employees. They were very helpful and went the extra mile for you. Next time I am headed to Ames I will defiantly stay again.

Room Tip: You have to book the suite with the fire place
