Convenient hotel location close to highway

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: Clean linens, hot breakfast, and only two levels of rooms.
Cons: The pool area needed updating and was out of towels and had lots of dirty wet towels laying all over when no other people were present.
Location: We stayed here in order to be close to the Iowa State Fair, but far enough away to get crazy price hikes and traffic congestion.
This is a nice quiet hotel with a fair level of cleanliness and decent accomodations. It has the hot breakfast which is a great bonus. The pool was small and cleanliness of pool area was questionable; but it was overall far better than lesser priced hotels we have recently stayed at. We would stay here again.

Great place for quick trip

Posted Jul 15, 2014
Pros: Very easy on and off expressway.
Only needed basic accommodations for one night while traveling through. Arrived late and left early but this one suited our needs for this trip.

Adequate for a night's stay

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Having stayed at most of the hotels on S. 16th St. in Ames a time or two, this one certainly ranks nearer the bottom of the stack. It's just a bit older and outdated. Small eating area up front, terrifically slow WiFi, and loud A/C units, but it's a clean place to stay for a night.

Not so much

Not worth the $95.00 per night they charged me!

Worked for us

Posted Apr 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
Our stay was enjoyable for the most part but there are a few things that didn't live up to up to expectations. The mattresses were very uncomfortable and there was a strong smell in the lobby/hallways. Our room was clean but the bathroom was VERY small (door almost hits the stool). Room was updated and well taken care of. Though the staff was pretty friendly I am not sure we would stay again. It was also VEISHA weekend so we took what we could get.

Average hotel, below average hot tub

Posted Mar 31, 2014
Pros: Breakfast and clean rooms.
Cons: New paint, new wallpaper, new hot tub, paint on the door frame in pool area.
Location: We just went to Iowa State and Target.
The hot tub was very small only holding three adults. The paint was peeling and chipped around it, there was a strong chemical smell, and it was the perfect size that should be in each room. My son and I filled the tub with little room to spare. I booked this hotel because they had a hot tub but I had no idea it was this small. The pool looked nice but we did not use it. The paint on the door going out of the pool area was peeling and looked rusted out. The hotel is dated. The walls need some paint and some wall paper was peeling. The bathroom was small and took some effort to maneuver around inside of it. The room was clean, though, and I thought the beds were comfortable. The alarm clock was the easiest hotel alarm clock I have ever used. The breakfast is fantastic. I had just started a wheat-free diet and they had eggs and sausage. They also had cereals, toast, pastries, and waffles. My son and I both found plenty to eat. This hotel is about 10 minutes from the school.

Near Interstate Highway

Posted Jan 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
While most attributes were at least tolerable, it is far from a two star experience. The Hot Tub was not work during our three day stay! The staff was notified numerous times, never did see any type of maintenance crew. I have stayed at much better sites, at the same or lower rates. MANY other hotels are located within walking distance of this facility. Our next trip will utilize one of those.
