You get what you pay for

Stayed one night during ISU Family Weekend, when hotel rooms were hard to come by in Ames. The hotel seemed very tired. Air conditioning was non-existent in the lobby and hallways. AC worked in our room, but was weak even with the thermostat turned all the way up. There was no elevator, so we had to walk up three flights with our luggage. Interaction with the staff was adequate -- nothing special but nothing bad, either. On the plus side, the room had a refrigerator and microwave, the TV worked, and there were plenty of towels. The location was easy to find and convenient to several restaurants as well as Walmart. The nightly rate was significantly less than the hotels in Ames.
