Clean and comfortable

Posted Feb 25, 2015
Hotel was easy to get to, very comfortable beds and very clean. We got in at 10 pm and left the next morning at 8:30, so it was a short stay. Room was perfect for that and the price

Exceeded expectations

Posted Feb 24, 2015
Immaculate, spacious room appeared to be very recently remodeled. White, fresh bedcover instead of the usual heavy, dark spreads that you are afraid to touch. Warm but lightweight down comforter. Will choose this hotel again.

Flush First

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Peed as soon as I got to the room. When I flushed, the toilet backed up. They don't flush at least once when cleaning a room?

Good enough for price

Posted Feb 22, 2015
Pros: Comfortable beds
Cons: Bathroom had cracks in tub and sink
Undergoing construction, but that was stated on the site when we booked. Continental breakfast was decent.

I feel this hotel is a good value for the price.

Posted Jan 23, 2015
Pros: The value for the money
Cons: It is being updated and I think that will make it a more inviting hotel.
Location: It is right off the expressway and near many restaurants, shopping and the university.
Although the hotel was under construction, it was not noisy and created no problems. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast more than I expected for a continental breakfast. the staff was very welcoming and helpful.

Hotel WILL Get Better once renovations are done.

Posted Jan 19, 2015
Pros: I think when done, this will be a decent place to stay for the price. Easy access to main road, Iowa State University, Ames dining area.
Cons: Unfair right now. Need to return when renovated for proper answer to this question.
Location: Two exits from Iowa State (why we were there). Duff Avenue, shopping/restaurant area one exit removed. If room faces US 30, much louder in room.
Hotel was undergoing a massive redecoration. Carpets pulled up. Lobby tile ripped out. Access to elevator iffy each day. Ice machines plugged and unplugged. Construction noise in the hotel started early each day. First night spent on first floor by exterior door which began being used at 5 am and banged each time closed. Same with other room doors. On second day, asked to be moved to top floor. Much better. Top floor was more complete in renovation and quieter. Room relatively small fro two people. Beds very comfortable. A lot of other hotels going up nearby and added exterior noise to the interior noise as well. Maid staff did beds, restocked towels, little else as far as I could tell. Small fitness room with one eliptical and one treadmill. Once in for the night you are in for the night ---- no real nightlife in Ames unless you hit the college side of town. Recommend Olde Main Brewing Company for decent dinner. The rest seem to be chain restaurants, which worked for the week.

Horrible Mess because of remodeling

Posted Jan 17, 2015
Bait & switch... This was not a hotel but a construction site! I never would have booked this room if they posted an announcement on their website- Messy, dirty & smelly! I want my money back.

Great place

Posted Jan 15, 2015
Pros: Great location, commodities, cleanness and above all great, great, great staff
Cons: The place is in total remoleding so we have to wait until they finish
Location: Near restaurants, shopping, highways, gas stations, even Walmart. Also near Iowa State University
Although they are in total remodeling (from top to bottom, walls, carpets, the whole deal) they manage to maintain the facilities funtional and everything clean. Excellent service, very good breakfast menuand top of the line staff. Great location, near restaurants, shopping, highways and Iowa State University. Looking foward to stay again when they finish the remodeling.
