Nice room. Good A/C controls to keep room temperature perfect. Decent room service, bar, and breakfast area. Great waking paths (sidewalks) around the grounds adjacent to the hotel. Close to the university. We like staying here when we visit Ames.

Hotel is in a lovely location. Room was quiet, beds were comfortable. I had a few issues with room service, and they were taken care of to my satisfaction. It is easy to see the Iowa State pride here.
