Great hotel that is finishing up on some renovations. Room was extremely quite allowing for a great night's sleep. Breakfast area was well stocked and very clean. I will definitely stay there again when I am back in Ames.

This hotel does not meet the quality standards of other Americinn hotels. The front desk was not very friendly or efficient and there were issues with my room. The hotel advertises that it is completely renovated, but it is not. In fact, the renovation appears to be in progress. There are several other hotel properties on the same street where... More

This was our third stay in Ames Iowa as this location splits our long trip to Maple Lake, MN. Two other places we stayed at before and were ranked very high in the trip advisor we found very wanting, not so at the Americinn. Check in was quick, accurate and very courteous.

The price was much lower than other hotels in the area. Very clean and nice room but it had an odor of cleaning products. You would get used to it but if you left the room you would notice the smell again. Breakfast was average. I would probably stay there again

When we pulled up to this motel, we were concerned about staying there.. The outside is faded and it looks like they had filled holes, etc. with spackling compound. I believe they were possible getting ready to paint it. But, we were pleasantly surprised when we went inside. It was clean, comfortable and quiet.(No noise heard from other rooms!) They... More

Hotel was quiet. We used the hot tub, breakfast was what I pretty much expect these days although they did have individual cups of fresh fruit that I appreciated. Front desk employees at check in were very friendly & courteous. Like having copies of USA Today available. Very good Mexican Restaurant was within walking distance just across the parking lot
