I booked the last available room with a queen bed which was on the same day that I needed it. I traveled to Ames with two teens in order to tour Iowa State University. When I booked the room, I included a request on location on the floor. The room location turned out to be perfect. Upon arrival around 10pm,...

Very clean and modern. Hospitable, friendly staff. Nicely decorated and excellent bed. Have always liked Microtel, but can't always find one. Had an accessible room, and it was just right for a person on crutches.

Nothing says welcome from a 5 hour drive like: dirty beds covered in hair, black bathtub floor, dirty carpets and smelly towels. So glad we traveled all the way here for a hotel as disgusting as this. I advice you to stay far away from this bed bud infestation!

Set a napkin on side table with cookie on it to eat as a dessert after meal. Was covered with tiny ants in 15 minutes! No sign of them in the room prior and only place. Our dog did not like the room from the minute we arrived. She paced constantly, not like her. Should have known something was wrong....

the room was very clean, which is very refreshing, not all motels have been real clean in our travels. The young man at the front desk at check in was very nice gave us places to eat supper, he was right it was very good at The Café. The only issue and it is not earth shattering, is the water...
