          Very clean rooms and lobby area. The continental breakfast has a little to be desired, but we got what we needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful! May I add again, very clean! So important! A nice stay.

          Clean, comfortable motel with close connection to I-35 and to Iowa State campus... Multiple choice of restaurants that are close also a plus. Pet friendly is also a plus, with adjacent areas to walk your pet.....

          We have held our family reunion at this location for 20 years. The staff is always so accommodating. We each get our own guest room; then also have the conference room as a place for all family to gather. It's wonderful!

          If the weather is nice it is like 2 mile 15 minute walk. Ames now has uber and is about 6 bucks. I wouldn't choose a hotel in ames based on that. This hotel is likely the closest to isu I can think of though.
