Good choice while visiting Iowa State.

Posted May 13, 2015
Pros: Location to Iowa State
Cons: The PILLOWS!
Location: Not much to do in Ames IA except visit Iowa State
Hotel is one of the better choices in Ames, IA. The beds were nice but the pillows were terrible. The room was clean, but the air conditioner was so loud it made it hard to sleep.

Easy access to and from Hwy, close to ISU. The Hot

Posted May 12, 2015
Pros: The Hotel and rooms were clean, the surrounding area was beautiful to walk around and the staff were very pleasant.
Cons: I would like to have seen a small refrigerator in the room.
Location: The best part was the easy access to and from the Hwy! We were close to ISU campus, restaurants, gas station and stores.
This was a wonderful place to stay for anyone traveling! The place was clean, had beautiful landscaping and interesting facts strewn all around about ISU! The restaurant is pricey for dinner so we chose to eat lunch there instead and the amount of food you get was a great value for the price and was terrific!

BAD EXPERIENCE

Posted Apr 20, 2015
Outdated, smelly, dirty, no basics in the room. Air conditioner did not work in room, clean staff did not do basic cleaning in room. Hallways have an odor to them

Great location next to Iowa State's campus.

Posted Apr 13, 2015
As usual, had great service again at Gateway. From the time we checked in to the time we checked out everything was great. Once we arrived home, we noticed we had forgot a couple items in our room so we gave the Hotel a call and the staff located the items and are sending them to us at no charge. We will definitely be staying here with our return trips to ISU during football season.
