Very comfortable and close to campus

Posted Sep 28, 2014
Nice suites, close to campus. Very comfortable beds, free breakfast (including waffles, cereal, yogurt, coffee, juice & fruit). I stayed in a suite; while it wasn't huge it gave me plenty of room to relax, work, and eat without that cramped feeling of being in a traditional room. The hotel is connected to an Old Chicago restaurant and right across the street from a movie theatre. And every hotel employee I interacted with was extremely friendly. Next time I'm on campus this will be the first place I check for availability.

Most Wonderful Stay Ever in Ames

Posted Aug 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
We have stayed at several hotels in Ames in the last couple years, and this hotel was by far the most luxurious, clean, and comfortable. We paid only a bit more than other places we have stayed, but the great experience made it well-worth the extra money. Our room smelled fresh, our sheets were sooo soft, the bed was the nicest I can ever remember sleeping in, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, well-laid-out for a family of 4, and we felt very pampered by such a lovely room. Many thanks for such a pleasant visit--we will use this hotel again!

We're pleased that you enjoyed using the hot tub! Both the swimming pool and whiropool/hot tub are open every day from 6am until midnight. And all GrandStay guests can use the facilities at AnyTime Fitness just two blocks away! Just stop at the desk to pick up a pass key. We hope to see you again soon!
