5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I stayed here one night in May when the hotel I usually stay in was full. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff were courteous and welcoming. While we have a contracted rate with another establishment, I would definitely return here when needed. It is easy to access from the I-35 & Hwy 30 intersection, and allows easy access to everything in Ames. It is close enough to walk to El Azteca (see reviews), one of the best places to eat in Ames.

It was very nice to see that they actually had a room available when a lot of the hotels in the area were full. I have stayed in a Windham before with no problems or complaints, but this one was not as well kept as the others. The rooms were clean enough, but the smoke smell in a non-smoking room was aweful. I left the window open for awhile, but the highway noise was so loud I couldn't even hear the tv. It was nice to have a light breakfast in the morning, but I don't think the desk gentleman was too thrilled when I asked for more biscuits or overly friendly when I checked out. The check in gentleman however was very friendly and accomodating. I would stay at this hotel again to save money, but would next time ask for a different room to avoid the smell.

We stayed in this hotel for one night for our daughter's college orientation. The price was cheap so I was a little concerned about staying there but I read the reviews on here and they were all positive. The room was clean and spacious. The continental breakfast was fair at best but typical. We will definitely stay here again when visiting our daughter.
