Difficult manager couldn't use our reservations, so we wanted to change the date, but to no avail. We could have done that ONLY if I paid him the difference in cash. Sounded too shady to me. We list our money, very upset!

Walked in Room Walked Right Back Out.

Posted Aug 21, 2015
Pros: There is nothing to like about this place.
Cons: The only thing to improve this place is to bulldoze it and do NOT let the current management run another motel
Location: Right next to a truck stop, you actually have to drive though the truck stop's parking lot to get to this rat hole of a motel
This was our first time staying at a Motel 6 (we usually stay and Country Inn & Suites OR Best Westerns.) This room smelled horrible, it was a non smoking room and the bed sheets had cigarette burns, the floor was sticky and there was pubic hairs in the bathroom along the base boards and shower. We checked back out within 10minutes. WE paid $96 for a room and the Motel doesn't even offer a continental breakfast. NASTY place! The entry way from the North side was filthy and the stairwell was disgusting. PASS ON THIS PLACE. WE decided to keep driving and my family slept in the car along the way.

Convenient location, easy to find

Posted Aug 18, 2015
My stay was mostly good, but I found that the bathroom had not been cleaned properly (dirty underwear hiding behind the door, and a soap wrapper and dead bug on the floor, meaning that the floor had not been cleaned). The staff took care of it promptly, and was very apologetic. Otherwise, the bed was comfortable and it was very quiet in the hotel.

Great convenience for a short stay.

Posted Jul 1, 2015
Pros: The comfortable beds and room with a refrigerator and microwave.
Cons: The breakfast nook was very small and ordinary.
Location: The location was very satisfactory to to our needs...close to the Iowa State University. It was also close to several very nice restaurants.
We found the beds to be the most comfortable! No sagging or lumps. We stayed for two nights and would definitely stay there again. The room was very clean and the linens were changed daily. It was also very quiet there. There was a standard breakfast but we really did not need it and took a sample before we were on our way. Just standard breakfast choices of oatmeal, toast, muffins, bananas, yogurt, cereal, juice, coffee and tea. The best pat was the comfortable bed. My husband has a bad back and that was very important.

OK Stay

Posted Jun 30, 2015
Pros: Beds were very comfortable and rate of room very reasonable.
Cons: Finish construction items in room.
Location: Great location close to College.
OK Hotel, room had construction items going on with board up on door between rooms. Breakfast area needs to be expanded to accommodate all guest eating breakfast.

Very slow internet

Cons: Internet connection
The internet connection was so slow I twice called the 800 number. I was told that the hotel's capacity had been maxed out.

Good walkability

Posted Jun 15, 2015
The description on Expedia for the room I reserved was misleading. I learned when checking-in that sleeps up to 6 really meant 1 adults and 5 kids. I had to book another room. Also, this location doesn't have an elevator.

Downtown Ames

Room was tolerable for a one night stay. Parking was inadequate for the number of guests. All in all, a reasonable place to crash for a night but not much else.
