Not recommended for stay! Needs upgrade!

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Pros: The location and the waffle machine.
Cons: This hotel needs a renovation quickly. The price is not reflective of what you are paying for.
Location: This hotel is right off the highway, so there is access to plenty of things to do because there certainly isn't any reason to stay in the room!
This hotel is not a place I would recommend for a stay if heading into Ames. I wasn't expecting a whole lot, but this place was still disappointing. This is a $45/night hotel, not a penny more. I will say the beds were very comfortable, and the room itself was fairly clean. The bathroom was tiny and the door wasn't able to be opened all the way without wedging it under the shower curtain rod. The hotel also had a distinct odor emanating from the lobby that wasn't pleasant, but thankfully didn't linger into the rooms. The orange juice/apple juice machine needs to be cleaned ASAP! The taste of the dirty hose was prevalent in both juices. Also, the pool was not something I would swim in. If you are a college student in town for a football game, this is a fine place. If you are looking for anything above that, stay somewhere else!

Hotel needs attention to details.

When I arrived the bathroom sink was dirty. When I ran water, the water did not drain in the sink. The bathtub faucet dripped all night. The tissues in the tissue holder were completely soaked with liquid. There was no heat and did not see any way to adjust the heat.

Perfect One Night Stay

Posted Mar 2, 2015
Pros: Beds were comfortable and the shower was hot with a nice stream of water.
Cons: Complete renovations such as trim boards and working outlets.
Hotel was nice for a one night stay. Could see that renovations were taking place. Check-in was fast and painless. Staff was friendly. Upon entering room, room was clean and room was comfortable. Beds were comfortable and were new. Shower was amazing with hot water. Once again, you could tell renovations were occurring which was evident with missing trim boards and a few outlets not working. Breakfast was a typical hotel breakfast but it was stocked and areas were clean. Maybe could have used a few more tables. Overall, this hotel was a good stay for what we needed.

Don't go there.

Posted Mar 2, 2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
Everything in the lobby was dirty - the furniture and floor and the gentleman behind the counter even had on dirty clothing. I knew immediately there was no way I would spend the night in any of their rooms.

Horrible

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
Location: The location was great for a weekend visiting my daughter at Iowa state.
This hotel is apparently under new ownership and is going through some major growing pains. Upon my arrival, I first noticed windows with ripped screens and yellow stained curtains. Through some of the windows I could see piles of mattresses stacked and other windows with torn curtains. I made my way in only to be overcome with running and screaming kids throughout the entire filthy lobby as well as the smell of vomit and disinfectant. I turned around and walked back out to my car. I couldn't even imagine staying at this location. I thought it was very dirty and there was no order in the lobby whatsoever. Never made it to my reserved room.
