Good hotel. Work out room nice. Close to highway. Sort of close to ISU campus. Quiet room. I prefer strawberries as fruit. They had typical melon blend that no one wants. I liked the complimentary Ames Tribune and USA Today.

Went with my daughter to visit ISU hotel is close to basketball practice facilities so teams playing against ISU were staying at our hotel. They were able to accommodate us checking in earlier than normal and everyone was friendly and helpful.

We love this place! It is located in a very convenient location with a very friendly staff. The rooms are clean and comfortable and I always look forward to the infused water! My only request would be a complimentary breakfast.

I had confirmed times and all details for breakfast in advance, but when no chef reported to work the next morning, we had no breakfast available. Highly disappointing. This inconvenienced us and became s problem since we didn't have time to get breakfast elsewhere at 7am before needing to report for an all day athletic event. So, I can't recommend...

I scheduled an overnight stay at this property in March. When I arrived they did not have my reservation because I made it for the wrong day. Sheila at the front desk took care of it for me and honored my rate even though it was a last minute check-in. She was also very helpful in recommending some places I...

Room was standard . I did like the individual serving Keurig coffee machine in the room. I went downstairs for the free breakfast and there was a pan of eggs. No bacon no sausage. I must state there was an individual taking breakfast orders but it would have been about a 20 minute wait. I had an early appointment so...
