Hotel Near Ames

We are planning to go to parents weekend at Iowa State however hotels and B & Bs are sold out!

I am curious of any near hotel locations anyone may recommend and how far is the drive to campus from your recommendation?

Family weekend is October 12 - 14? I do not find anything in Ames, either. Des Moines is about 50 miles away, kind of a pain, but plenty of rooms available. Book a room you can cancel in Des Moines now and hope someone has a better idea than I do.

Altoona is another location that is closer. Best hotel in Ankeny is Courtyard Marriott although Fairfield, Hampton, AmeriInn, Country Inn & Suites are all newer as well.
