Easy access off of the highway after a long day of traveling. The Front counter greeted me promptly. He was courteous and efficient! I appreciated being acknowledged as a Spire Member! The room was neat, clean and properly stocked! Thank you!

Reviewed 5 December 2016

This is a nice looking facility with a small dining area and a basic bar just off the lobby. There is a pool, although I didn't look at it, so can't give any feedback. We had a king suite, which was enormous - living area with hide-a-bed couch, a couple chairs, coffee table, end tables, TV, dining table and kitchenette...

Easy check-in, clean room and very helpful staff. Location worked well as it is very close to the ISU campus. Restaurants and shopping are very close by. Next time I am in the area, I plan on staying here again.

The staff was friendly, the hotel is clean and quiet. Priced appropriately, stay here regularly. It is near Iowa State University where the majority of my meetings are. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

Quick check-in - quiet night (except for thunderstorm) - comfortable room. Easy access off highway. Only problem was tv remote would not turn tv on or off. Volume and channels worked fine. Will definitely stay here on next trip through Ames. Other hotels in area were rediculessly high priced. This location had very reasonable cost.

This is a nice hotel without the outlandish price that seems to come with some of the hotels located in the Ames area. There is also a restaurant in the hotel, which is always a plus after a long days drive.

Clean, quiet and functional. Priced appropriately. Will stay again next time I'm in Ames. Close to downtown and walking distance to Iowa State. The best part is this property is not along Rt 30, so no highway road noise.
