Perfect location. Quaint setting with wonderful guests and great amenities. It was a little noisy, especially near the stairway, but that's expected given the age of the building. We plan to return with a few other couples to make it a "thing".
This is a quaint and convenient place to stay. -Clean room, comfy beds, wonderful hot breakfast and super friendly proprietors. It was our first visit, and we will be staying at Iowa House again! It is a beautiful, historic site.
Charming décor, immaculately clean, great breakfast, near restaurants, right by Iowa State, complimentary snacks available 24/7, and contactless entry available. Duplex room was available. No elevator that I saw, though, so if you would like a third-floor room, be prepared for stairs. (There are first-floor rooms available, though). Would stay here again
We stayed at the Iowa Inn for three nights. The host and staff were fabulous, friendly, and provided fantastic service. The building is in perfect condition and the facilities and room excellent and comfortable. The rooms are so nice as to make you feel like you never left home. The first floor common room is elegant and very comfortable to reading, talking, or just relaxing. Breakfast was made to order, simple and delicious, and delivered quickly. The dining area was clean and comfortable. Location is great. We were not there for the University however but the property is easily accessible with ample parking. There are sitting areas outside as well to enjoy the day or evening. In summary, our stay was fantastic and we highly recommend the Iowa Inn.
This bed and breakfast was a beautifully restored older home. The rooms were large and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was wonderful with plenty of food and excellent service. would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone staying in the area.
I will only stay here when I come back to Ames! Quaint, clean, comfortable with a great location. I will recommend this place to everyone! Friendly staff, homey feel, great breakfast, within walking distance to campus.
OMG,OMG,OMG!!!!!!! I cannot say enough good things about this place. It was very private, very clean, and had everything you could possibly want in a room. 1000% better than any hotel I have ever been in. 1000% better than any B&B I have ever been in. First class all the way!!! They had snacks, they had rooms you could meet your friends in and talk. Huge fireplace, the place was decorated so nice. It looked like it was professionally decorated. I absolutely loved it. I am stunned over the customer service this place provides. Loved,loved,loved staying here.
This is our favorite place to stay in Ames. It is clean and quiet and more homey than a hotel. They have snacks and coffee and water for you at all hours and the hot breakfast is also very good. We highly recommend this place!
If you don't want a typical hotel feel, this is the place for you. Rooms are all beautifully decorated in a homey feel with quilts and each different than each other. Very warm feel during this bitterly cold Iowa winter this year. Staff is great at not being seen so we feel like we are in our own home sitting around the fireplace with friends. Easy walking distance to campus, great coffee shop and local style restaurants in campustown. NOW is the time to have a weekend away as during pandemic, there are openings.
The snow was falling outside, but the stay was warm, friendly and a delight. It was a trip to move a kiddo back into a dorm, and the convenience of a place to stay just down the street was perfect. Andrea was helpful, a fabulous cook and everything was easy, clean and comfortable.
