3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

It's a Super 8, not the Taj Mahal.
I needed an inexpensive place to stay near campus and that is what I got. The room was spartan, but clean. The desk staff was pleasant at check in and check out. I was not spending much time in Ames and my usual choice was booked, so this worked out fine. I was a bit freaked out by the garden level room with a car bumper as my view however. Breakfast was also spartan, and the choices were quite limited. There was, however, plenty of hot coffe to get me moving to a real breakfast nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a floor that is not garden level as the windows are literally car bumper level.
