Below average motel

Posted Jun 30, 2015
Pros: Close to Hwy 30. Only other motel was Super 8. Boone needs MORE motels.
Cons: We stayed in room #205. No way to improve this room...
Location: Had business in Ogden, Ia. Did not use Boone business's.
1st of all, it's way over priced. Not worth $144 per night. Would never stay here or pay that amount again. The bathroom was the smallest I've ever seen. Almost had to get in the tub to shut the door. Furniture was dirty and not comfortable. Ironing board cover dirty. Breakfast room way too SMALL for the number of guests staying. Could not move around to fix breakfast. Cold dry cereal tasted old.

Pros: Good breakfast, close to attractions
Location: Boone Scenic Train & Museum
Housekeeping does not give you new shampoo or conditioner daily. That usually would have been no problem, but my husband and I had gotten dirty while riding the excursion train in Boone & needed to take a 2nd shower the 1st stay of our visit. By that next morning we barely had enough shampoo for our shower. I was unable to lower the water temperature in our shower. Although the faucet said it was on cold, it was still too hot for me to wash my face in the shower. Getting a sunburn during our day out on the 1st day, made this worse that next morning.

Location: right near gas station and grocery stores...easy access to essentials.
We were there for only 6-7 hours on our way to a road race the next day. The hotel and rooms met our expectations and exactly what we needed. Check in and out were quick, and rooms were clean and comfortable.

Their was no Kleenex supplied in the room. The toliet paper was very little on open roll...should have been replaced.

Cons: The indoor pool experience would be greatly enhanced by installing a hot tub next to the pool.
The bed sheets did appear to be clean when we first arrived. There were some small hair fragments between the sheets. The rest of the room was clean and appeared to be well maintained.

Won't be staying here again.

Posted Feb 16, 2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Friendly staff, clean rooms and better breakfast arrangements.
Location: The location is great, but people either go to AMES or nearby Railway museum for activity.
The pictures that were shown at while I made my booking was quite deceptive. The rooms were cramped, the bathrooms were narrow and has no exhaust. The telephone in our room did not work. The breakfast that was included were below standard and no staff to even fill out empty juice container. The room carpet seems that it is in dire need of a steam vacuum or some serious cleaning. and there is no elevator. Lastly, there is no elevator.

Great Stop Halfway Btwn Kansas City & Minneapolis!

Posted Jan 7, 2015 on Hotels
This was a spontaneous overnight stop due to anticipated bad weather. I booked online very late the night before and was shocked to get such a great deal. As it turns out, there was an error in the price listing. The hotel honored the rate and the customer service was outstanding. I wasn't able to take advantage of most of the amenities, so I can't speak to the condition of the pool/whirlpool or continental breakfast. The room was very clean and had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. (There's a 24-hour Walmart located next door so I was able to pick up any overnight items I needed there.) The small fridge in the room made a loud noise, but I was able to quiet it by sliding a thick piece of cardboard under one of the corners. My only criticism is that the mattress was much too firm for MY personal preference. (I have chronic lower back pain and own a Sleep Number bed, which I keep between 35 and 45 on a scale of 1-100, with 100 being maximum firmness.) I found it extremely difficult to sleep comfortably, as my hip and back pain was already aggravated due to a long drive.

Baymont Inn- Boone IA

Hot tub has not been working for three months according to staff. Only one of two pool heaters worked during our stay. Staff also sounded like this is not unusual. Pleasant people- poor maintenence.

Terrible experience

Posted Dec 1, 2014
I have never written a negative review, but this was a terrible experience. Housekeeper attempted to check us in, key cards hardly ever worked, broken hot tub, cold pool area, heater in room was acting up, breakfast was extremely minimal. I would not recommend this hotel. So glad when we checked out of this hotel.
