"I would avoid"
The smell of smokers is immediate this is an old property in need of huge upgrades. The cleanliness of the rooms adequate the lack of attention to service and the little things are disturbing full garbage cans in the breakfast area and clean area to prepare food and eat is sadly missing. I cleaned this up just to help and assure as staff sits 10 feet away at the front desk unaware unless the issue is mentioned. Sad

Honestly, I have stayed in nicer Super8 hotels. The mirror in the bathroom had a large crack. The bathroom tile had missing grout. I was disappointed in the hotel, given the price.

The room was very clean! But I showed up at 6:15 pm with my toddler only to be told I could check in but couldn't get in my room yet because it hadn't been cleaned. I think that's a little ridiculous especially since there check in time is 2 pm!

"June Stay"
We stayed Thursday-Sunday for a family wedding in Nevada. Pleasant check in service. Hotel was quiet which we appreciated. Rooms could use updating. Nice to have in-room wifi included at no extra cost. Might be coincidence, but my husband experienced spam on his business computer following our stay. I called the hotel to report the possibility their internet was compromised and the manager became very defensive.

"Ames"
Was a nice room, clean. Great hotel staff. We chose the hotel because of the breakfast and our fast schedule on the ISU campus. The only hot item was the waffles. Yogurt, cereal, bagels and hard boiled eggs were OK but we were there 3 nights - by the 3rd morning I was looking in the snack machine for something different.

"Not the greatest"
when we looked on hotels.com it showed the hotel a lot nicer than it was. I mean a lot nicer. We got there and it was kinda run down. The reason we chose that hotel was because it looked nice in the pictures and because the pool area looked great and had a hot tub. The pool area was small. Cracked everywhere. The hot tub was out of aervice because they said they were putting in a fitness room. Rooms were clean but the beds were super uncomfortable. Which most hotel beds are. The staff was friendly. i feel hotels.com let us down more that the actual hotel did.

"Not recommended for stay! Needs upgrade!"
This hotel is not a place I would recommend for a stay if heading into Ames. I wasn't expecting a whole lot, but this place was still disappointing. This is a $45/night hotel, not a penny more. I will say the beds were very comfortable, and the room itself was fairly clean. The bathroom was tiny and the door wasn't able to be opened all the way without wedging it under the shower curtain rod. The hotel also had a distinct odor emanating from the lobby that wasn't pleasant, but thankfully didn't linger into the rooms. The orange juice/apple juice machine needs to be cleaned ASAP! The taste of the dirty hose was prevalent in both juices. Also, the pool was not something I would swim in. If you are a college student in town for a football game, this is a fine place. If you are looking for anything above that, stay somewhere else!

"Hotel needs attention to details."
When I arrived the bathroom sink was dirty. When I ran water, the water did not drain in the sink. The bathtub faucet dripped all night. The tissues in the tissue holder were completely soaked with liquid. There was no heat and did not see any way to adjust the heat.

"OK if you are looking for a cheap room."
Room was great, newly remodeled and smelled surprisingly better than I expected (like new carpet, etc). They are in the process of renovating because there was a lot of furniture outside the outside access door we used. Rocks in the "landscaping" were big and hard to walk on, very odd, nothing stopping them from rolling all over the parking lot and it was a little hill to walk up/down as you left your car to get to the sidewalk to walk inside. Pool area left A LOT to be desired. The hot tub is out of order and a sign at the front desk says it will be replaced with an exercise room. I was not about to get in the pool after seeing it, however my boys did and they were fine with it. If you stay in your room, you'll be pleasantly surprised with how nice it seems the hotel is! At breakfast, I had to ask them to wipe off two of the three tables so we could eat. Not much selection, but it was enough to get us through until lunch: waffle iron, bananas, yogurt, cereal, toast, muffins, bagels, coffee, milk and juice.

"Perfect One Night Stay"
Hotel was nice for a one night stay. Could see that renovations were taking place. Check-in was fast and painless. Staff was friendly. Upon entering room, room was clean and room was comfortable. Beds were comfortable and were new. Shower was amazing with hot water. Once again, you could tell renovations were occurring which was evident with missing trim boards and a few outlets not working. Breakfast was a typical hotel breakfast but it was stocked and areas were clean. Maybe could have used a few more tables. Overall, this hotel was a good stay for what we needed.

everything about this hotel was mediocre at best. A girlfriend and I went to relax and hang out in the hot tub--which was no functioning and being turned into a fitness room. The breakfast was sparse and unimpressive. The staff were nice enough and the rooms were fine, but nothing special.

"disappointed"
Our toilet wasn't flushing and the water in the tank wouldn't refill and there was no on on staff available to fix it. Since the hotel was booked, there was no room available to switch to either. We booked a room with 2 queen beds, but they were the size of double beds. The hot tub was being taken out and turned into something else.

"Horrible"
This hotel is apparently under new ownership and is going through some major growing pains. Upon my arrival, I first noticed windows with ripped screens and yellow stained curtains. Through some of the windows I could see piles of mattresses stacked and other windows with torn curtains. I made my way in only to be overcome with running and screaming kids throughout the entire filthy lobby as well as the smell of vomit and disinfectant. I turned around and walked back out to my car. I couldn't even imagine staying at this location. I thought it was very dirty and there was no order in the lobby whatsoever. Never made it to my reserved room.

"Week At the Ames Baymont Inn"
I was very disappointed after checking in and walking to our room. The hotel was under constructions and the smell of new paint was overpowering. I was planning to look for another place the next day. However, after finding breakfast acceptable and the smell of paint dissipating, I decided to give it another day. I am glad we did stay another day. The hotel staff was particularly helpful in printing out documents we needed, parking was good and, with the paint smell almost gone, we were happy with our stay. I would stay again.

"Not a pleasant place to stay"
I checked in late at night, the desk person was on the phone clearly not interested in helping the person on the phone find the hotel, Once she hung up she was mildly interested in checking me in, The hotel at first appearance was a major disappointment, very small, very rough conditions, made me regret my online choice immediately This should be a one star property Old, finishes in the hotel were sloppy, trim paint carpet, the breakfast area had no seperation from the lobby and entryway and was very cold feeling, (Not temperature but atmosphere was cold). The room was extremely basic, it was a bed and a bathroom thats about it.

"Rebranded Comfort Inn. Not a Baymont experience."
This is not a typical Baymont, nor is it the Baymont that used to be in Ames. Rusty fixtures. Wallpaper stripped from hallways, no microwave or refrigerator, and Comfort Inn furnishings (cups, towels, etc.). Feels like a bait and switch, considering how good the original Baymont used to be (different location).

"Bad Experience"
The room and beds were clean and comfy, but the front desk person was rude and we didn't receive a very warm welcome. The pool looked terrible, so we didn't even go in it. We were only staying over night for a college tour in the morning, so it served it's purpose of a place to sleep, but if I would have had to spend more time there than I did, it would have been terrible. My daughter and I walked the night we got there and the girl at the front desk snapped at my daughter, who was only looking for a bathroom. We had just driven a long way from MN, so that turned us off right away.
