The ceiling was brownish in color, most likely due to the residue of cigarette smoke from previous guests, there was a bloodspot in the bathtub and the mattress was stained, completely unacceptable

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

I was in town for business at the university and stayed at the Super 8 on a special AARP discount. Room was very clean and comfortable. Nice television with good variety of channels. Newer air conditioning, worked excellent. I used the free wifi during my stay and had no issues. Front desk was very friendly and helpful, though if you get an Indian person they are a little hard to understand. Location was very easy to find off of I-35 and not far from the middle of Ames and the university. There was a bit of smoke smell in the hallway, but my room had no smoke smell in it.

Room Tip: There is a nice little Mexican restaurant next store "El Azteca".

The room appeared clean but had a smell for a non-smoking room. The rest of my review is the truth..........I was in town for my sons AAU basketball. I booked late so I was happy to even get a room. The rest of the team was staying at Comfort INN. Arrived back to the hotel around 11PM. Went to sleep around midnight. At 3am I was awoking to someone pounding on my door. At 4:15 AM outside my window approximately 20 adult male and females we screaming profanities back and forth. This went on for about 15 minutes. The hallway then became loud. I have stayed at many Super 8. Ames was the worst by far. A free stay would change my opinion. This hasn't happened before.

Enitre building is really smoky so non-smokers beware. No cleaning service during 2 nights stay. No mattress pad on the rollaway. No repairs of reported broken A/C cover. We didn't use the free breakfast service due to lobby filled with smoke.
