This was a great experience from start to finish. The Front End staff was very kind and professional. The rooms were very nice and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was great. (especially the biscuits and gravy). Very pleasant stay and would stay again!

We were here for 1 week for dance competition and our stay was excellent. The staff was very helpful. There was a boys basketball team from Nebraska that came in on Friday and they were rude,noisy and disrespectful to others but the staff was excellent in quickly handling the situation. Parents should learn to watch their children. A hotel is... More

We stayed here twice, once in June & once in July 2016. Nice hotel with friendly staff. Breakfast had good options. Pool was well kept. We had a basic 2 queen bed room, very clean - had a mini fridge and microwave. It fit our needs for our 2 short stays, would stay here again.

I'm writing this review as a public service to business travelers. DO NOT STAY HERE!! The only positive is the staff are very friendly and were empathetic to my needs. Room was standard Fairfield Inn, but the third floor hallway felt like it was 90 degrees. The air conditioner was apparently not working. If you need to do business the... More

Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast area was user-friendly and flexible for team meeting/daily safety talk. Staff was most helpful. Enjoyed the pool (small) and hot tub. Families also enjoyed the pool area amenities. Limited restaurant options within walking distance. Room thermostat was a little tricky.

We were in Ames, IA, for a graduation. Rooms were booked 1 year in advance because of the supply/demand issues of a college town. While the room was clean, it was not spectacular. For instance, there was not a table provided so we could eat - we ate with one person at the desk and one person on the bed.... More

Stayed here for two nights while visiting ISU campus. Rooms were clean. Quiet. Plenty of parking. Not far from Hickory Park and other college friendly dining areas. The breakfast had different options to chose from, both mornings. My only complaint is that the hot tub did not work while we were there. After pushing the button for the jets to... More

Stayed one night this past weekend. Once Construction is completed next door, this will be a great hotel - in a quiet location. They were working on Sunday, and the noise was bothersome. Just wanted to relax and all you could hear were the trucks and loud noises they made. we were on the first floor and all night long... More

Clean, modern, comfortable room with updated decor. Seating areas in lobby are comfortable for relaxing. Friendly staff are helpful with local restaurant suggestions. Hotel worked quite well for a weekend visit to see our child who attends Iowa State.

The hotel was convenient to the interstate. The beds were very firm and had comfy pillows. It was quiet all night. The hot tub was awesome after a long day...it was wonderfully hot. The breakfast has good variety.
