I am on the road a lot and stay at the same hotels through out the year. This is my choice of hotels in Ames, IA. I love how the staff are warm and welcoming and take great pride in their jobs and the hotel.

Great Hotel. Breakfast was not so good when we got to breakfast hall they where out of some of the items. The eggs seem like powder eggs and the jucie was awful. Overall it was a good stay and we will stay at the hotel again.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback about your past stay with us at our Hampton! I'm very sorry to hear about the issues you had during your stay with us. We have many exciting changes happening this year to our Hampton to ensure we are not only meeting, but we are exceeding our guest's expectations every time they stay with us and with your feedback we are able to focus on certain areas of our hotel that need to be improved! One of Hampton's biggest changes is our new breakfast program that includes many new breakfast items (including eggs) and we are so excited to start rolling these changes out this week! If there is anything else we can do please feel free to reach out to me directly via email or phone. Our entire team looks forward to welcoming you back to Ames soon.

Broken light fixtures, Worn out furniture, lumpy uncomfortable bed. The WI FI hardley worked and I ended up using the WI FI off my cell phone. Should be a $40.00 a night dump not a Hampton Inn. Staff was friendly the breakfast was great, but the rest is a no go.

The King room I stayed in was clean and spacious which is what I wanted. Breakfast being included is one of the reasons I tend to stay in Hampton Inns so that is to be expected. The minor downfall, is that they don't allow guests to easily plug their HDMI (high def port) from their laptop to the tv and use the tv as a monitor for the laptop. Most hotels allow this function now-a-days and it is a shame these guys don't here.

My stay in this hotel was brief, but very nice. It is in a beautiful location right on the river and was conveniently located for the business we were in town for. Everything was great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in town.

I enjoyed my stay at the Hampton Inn - Ames. I was in a single king room and the room was large and very clean. It also had a fridge and microwave, which was nice for my extended stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the breakfast lady who also served pie in the evening! The only disappointing thing at this hotel was the fitness room. Only the treadmill worked properly. Everything else needed repairs or some upkeep. Other than that, it was a great stay!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to write a review on Trip Advisor. The Hampton Inn Ames, Iowa takes each comment as a way to continually improve how we deliver service and quality.

Hampton Inn Ames, Iowa prides itself on providing Level 10 service and quality each and every day to each one of our guests. Our associates treat each guest as family and take pride in their product. Upon sharing this survey with them, we are disappointed to learn that the Fitness Center was not up to your standard. Our Chief Engineer assured me that his priority is to get the Fitness Center up to an acceptable level.

Lisa, the breakfast agent as well as the PM attendant, is a Superstar. She is truly a valuable asset to our hotel.

We do hope that should your travels return you to the Ames area, your choice of lodging will be the Hampton Inn!
