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 room was as good as some more... More

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

We stayed here the night before move-in day at Iowa State. This is my 2nd time staying here, and just as the 1st time, the room & bathroom were clean and quiet. It's a comfortable stay. Was a bit disappointed with breakfast the next morning since the serving staff wasn't really on hand monitoring that items were getting low. Overall,... 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

Parking lot is a little small but that is the only thing negative thing I can say...although my daughter was disappointed there was no biscuits and gravy for breakfast, there... More

Have stayed here several times while visiting ISU campus. Always clean and in good condition. Rooms are very quiet and comfortable. Easy access to hotel, large parking lot, nice open area in main entry. Breakfast offered eggs, biscuits/gravy, waffles, toast, juice, ham, muffins, etc. Good price compared to most other hotels, especially the ones closer to the college.

Very clean room, Nice and quiet. The hot tub was nice and clean and warm like it should have been. Refrigerator was in working condition. Hot breakfast was very nice also! The only disappointment was that I thought I had reserved the king suite w/ whirlpool bathtub but that is a first come first serve I guess.

We stayed at this hotel on July 15 & 16 with family for a relatives wedding. The hotel was nice, staff was very friendly and the rooms great. Beds are a little soft but I've slept in worse. The pool is also perfect for the kids. The only problem we had was getting breakfast. Besides our wedding group there were... More

There was a little bit of an issue with our reservations. They had a room for us but the cost was a little higher than what our reservation stated. They quickly corrected the error giving us the lower price and upgraded us to a suite. Staff were more than helpful and courteous. Could not find anything sub standard. I always... More
