Clean room. Like the channel sink faucets - nice touch. Breakfast is nothing to write home about, but typical. Very friendly staff and helpful with combining point free room with CC pay. Hallway is older- needs new baseboards but clean. Overall nice stay.

I have stayed here on multiple occasions. The rooms are clean & comfortable. The recent redecorating looks good. Front desk and housekeeping staff are friendly and responsive. Gas station next door is handy. Breakfast is plentiful with variety. My only gripe, and it is a very minor one, is that the in-room coffee is via a Keurig machine, so tastes,... More

The room that was booked online was not advertised as an accessible room. We do have accessible rooms advertised but this guest did not book one of them. The guest arrived after midnight and alerted us that she intended to book an accessible room. All of them were already rented and occupied at this time. We were able to move... More

Everything about this Motel is quality and beauty. I tried very hard to find something that could have been better, but could not find a thing. I look forward to returning during my next visit to Iowa.

I was pleasantly surprised by the trendy decor inside this hotel. I actually took a couple of pictures for my own decorating inspiration. The room had been recently updated and was very comfortable. The upstairs hallway was under renovation and was the only sign of a previously dated hotel. Located near ISU and just off of Hwy 30, the location... More

Not only was the place exceptionally clean but even though it is near a major highway, my room was nice and quiet. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with any questions I may have had. They were this way with everyone that came through the doors. I really wish I had tried the breakfast but needed to be over... More

The purpose of my trip doesn't fit into the boxes I'm supposed to check below. I was in Ames to take my very sick dog to the Iowa State veterinary hospital, and this is the closest hotel to that hospital that not only permits pets, but offers a discount. I found the kindness and compassion of the staff very touching... More
