While in Ames with our cat for medical treatment at Iowa State University vet school, we stayed at AmericInn. We were able to get a pet-friendly room for a reasonable fee. The room was clean and comfortable, and the desk staff was extremely cheerful and pleasant. Having stayed at a nearby hotel the last time we were in town, we...

We traveled from Colorado and stopped in Ames, Iowa. Our last four hours of driving was weary, cloudy, rainy weather;we were ready to get some rest. The literature about this hotel touted it was remodeled & updated. We entered the lobby filled with adults, gathered around the fireplace, chatting. We were checked in by a friendly and courteous young lady,...

We enjoyed an overnight stay at AmericInn on our way to a meeting. Everything was superb, especially getting a great night sleep in a very comfortable bed. The breakfast was amazing, too! It offered many options, and was very plentiful! A great start to our day! Thank you, AmericInn -- we'll be back again!

Got a pretty good deal on this hotel via Priceline. Included free breakfast, not bad, and had indoor pool/hot tub for the kids. The layout of the place (think "L" shape with lobby on the end) means if your room is not on the first or second floor near lobby, you will have a long walk to get to your...

Clean room, nice lobby environment, decent breakfast (better than some similar chains). But, hot tub not functional, locals using pool took up the bathroom for close to an hour, and when I expressed dissatisfaction with these problems, front desk told me that on another day, I would not have had these problems. Good grief-- I was there on THAT day....
