Just dropping in again. I've reviewed this place a couple times before but wanted to confirm my earlier reviews. The Iowa House B&B in Ames Iowa is a clean, comfortable and relaxing place to stay. It is extremely convenient to the ISU campus. We most recently stayed here during an Easter weekend visit to see out daughter at ISU and again we leave with no complaints. I will however make one suggestion. I like to move from room to room on different stays just to get a good feel for each room or floor. This time we elected to try out the second floor and maybe next time we'll move back to the third (top) floor. It is a beautiful historic home and therefore has the the proverbial squeaky wooden floor joists. There is nothing the owner/proprietor can do about this other than make the rest of the house as nice as possible, and this they do very well. Simply put the top floor is quieter and the second of first floors. If by chance the top floor was full when I go to make reservations the noise level from the second of even first floor would NOT be enough to keep me from booking an open room at this lovely bed and breakfast Inn.
