"Not enough for the $."
Comfortable bed and clean room, but overpriced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is under renovation but waste than comfortable. The staff was friendly and courteous. We would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"New owner not worth it"
Hotel was being remodeled so room was missing basic amenities. Other basics like the spa pool were not open. Overall fairly disappointed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not as expected."
The hotel was under renovation. Smell smoke in the hall. Paint fumes! One of the beds mattress sagged in the middle and the room refrigerator made so much noice we had to turn it off. The fan in the bathroom ran but did not seem to work. Breakfast selection limited. Hard Boiled eggs wer peeled in the refrigerator. Staff at front desk pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good value for the price. Very comfortable beds with new bedding and very clean room. Breakfast was good and area was very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice for the price"
Needs some updating but clean and comfortable for the night. Pool and hottub worked and were acceptable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A pleasant stay in Ames, Iowa"
Very helpful desk people in the lobby, a good clean room with a comfortable bed. Breakfast did not measure up, in choices or quality, to that of the personnel or the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was very clean, however, the hotel needs some updating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient hotel location close to highway"
This is a nice quiet hotel with a fair level of cleanliness and decent accomodations. It has the hot breakfast which is a great bonus. The pool was small and cleanliness of pool area was questionable; but it was overall far better than lesser priced hotels we have recently stayed at. We would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very clean and fresh looking. Nothing fancy but exactly what we were looking for. Excellent price. Nice breakfast. Polite staff. Very happy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needs a good scrubbing"
Surely not worth the current rate. Moldy tile in the bathroom, rooms need a major up dating, pool area was very small and a ton of extra stuff floating in the pool. The hot tub was big enough for 4. Paint was peeling and sand in the hot tub. Do not be fooled by the pictures.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we had a very relaxing stay which was great. we will come again in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place for quick trip"
Only needed basic accommodations for one night while traveling through. Arrived late and left early but this one suited our needs for this trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient acces to our event"
The air conditioner in our room was not working properly, had it turned down to the max and it was still warm and humid in our room. It was so humid the carpeting was damp. The location was fine, breakfast was a typical hotel breakfast, but the time spent in my room was horrible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Adequate for a night's stay"
Having stayed at most of the hotels on S. 16th St. in Ames a time or two, this one certainly ranks nearer the bottom of the stack. It's just a bit older and outdated. Small eating area up front, terrifically slow WiFi, and loud A/C units, but it's a clean place to stay for a night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not so much"
Not worth the $95.00 per night they charged me!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worked for us"
Our stay was enjoyable for the most part but there are a few things that didn't live up to up to expectations. The mattresses were very uncomfortable and there was a strong smell in the lobby/hallways. Our room was clean but the bathroom was VERY small (door almost hits the stool). Room was updated and well taken care of. Though the staff was pretty […] friendly I am not sure we would stay again. It was also VEISHA weekend so we took what we could get.

"Average hotel, below average hot tub"
The hot tub was very small only holding three adults. The paint was peeling and chipped around it, there was a strong chemical smell, and it was the perfect size that should be in each room. My son and I filled the tub with little room to spare. I booked this hotel because they had a hot tub but I had no idea it was this small. The pool looked nice […] but we did not use it. The paint on the door going out of the pool area was peeling and looked rusted out. The hotel is dated. The walls need some paint and some wall paper was peeling. The bathroom was small and took some effort to maneuver around inside of it. The room was clean, though, and I thought the beds were comfortable. The alarm clock was the easiest hotel alarm clock I have ever used. The breakfast is fantastic. I had just started a wheat-free diet and they had eggs and sausage. They also had cereals, toast, pastries, and waffles. My son and I both found plenty to eat. This hotel is about 10 minutes from the school. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"yes, right off the hwy."
very comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near Interstate Highway"
While most attributes were at least tolerable, it is far from a two star experience. The Hot Tub was not work during our three day stay! The staff was notified numerous times, never did see any type of maintenance crew. I have stayed at much better sites, at the same or lower rates. MANY other hotels are located within walking distance of this facility. […] Our next trip will utilize one of those. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel for visit to ISU"
The room was fine. It was clean. The staff was helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Alarm clock was on at 12am!"
The room was nice and clean, the service was fine and breakfast was decent but the alarm clock was on at 12am and that really put a damper on our night experience! I would also make one remark concerning the coffee machine in the room. At a time when we are becoming increasingly aware of the SERIOUS need to reduce our waste, each room in this hotel […] is equiped with a coffee machine that includes a disposable plastic tray for each cup of coffee! This is insane and unnecessary! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient but not wonderful"
The location was great as we were going to visit Thomas the Train. However, their were spider webs above our shower in one room and the other room's shower didn't drain well. The hot tub smelled like B.O. rather than chlorine and there wasn't an elevator which made it very difficult to get all of our luggage to the second floor. Tables in the breakfast […] area were nice. Breakfast was good and organized well. Overall, an okay stay, but could've been better, especially for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our first room was right next to the pool and we could hear everythign through the wall. I was traveling with an infant so napping wouldn't have been easy. When I asked to move the clerk was not helpful at all and very begrudgingly moved us. The second room was much small, had no fridge, and reeked of smoke. I'm used to hotel beds not being very comfortable, […] but this one was so awful. I woke up all night with an aching back. The pillows were super lumpy. There was no place to sit at breakfast. Overall, I was VERY disappointed in my stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The kids enjoyed the pool, but it was freezing cold. The hot tub was small but nice. The continental breakfast was a very good one. The price was a little high. The room looked nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needed a Bed"
Wife found a roach in bathroom and carpet in room was very sticky. I have stayed there before and was very happy. Checked in late so really nothing that could be done. Full hotel. Slept and immediately left.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quality of Hotel"
Bath area in the room was VERY small. Air conditioner had trouble keeping room cool and curtain hangs over air vent adding to the problem. Room rather dark - not warm and cozy. Wedding reception area was very HOT - they had trouble keeping a reasonable cool temperature. Breakfast lacking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worst Ever Stayed In"
Was scheduled to stay 2 nights but left after 1. Could not get in regular hotel we stay in so booked this thinking Comfort Inn should be okay. NOT....Dirty, outdated, smelled, no elevator. Will never return!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I made reservations here based on previous ratings, but was very disappointed. The highlight was the breakfast which is as stated, but the beds were very uncomfortable! My back/neck ached so bad in the morning I rose early too get in the hot tub to work out the kinks only to find the pool area would not open until 8am. When it finally did open the hot […] tub was anything but hot! It was actually cooler than the pool. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Got what I paid for."
No frills hotel, but wasn't expecting it to be either. I was just looking for a nice, clean place to lay my head overnight with my family. No complaints there...room was well maintained, pillows were comfortable and the free breakfast was just what we needed to start our day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the hot tub needed to be resurfaced or painted. pool area smelled funnyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy access when passing through Ames"
Hotel was clean. They advertise hot breakfast - but it is just sausage and preformed egg circles that are zapped in a microwave. Likely good for a business traveler that stops for coffee and juice on the way out of the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The stay was ok, the hotel is in need of remodeling, although it was clean, just gave that out of date feeling. The pool / hot tub was very clean but had very strong chlorine smell that left eyes burning before we got in. It was game nite, so the price was steep for the room, so if we needed a room it would not be our first choice, but would stay if […] needed a night in Ames. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"We had a great time!!"
The room was great. My husband was very pleased with the breakfast, he was glad to see eggs and sausage, not just tones of carbs!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel service was great! Bathrooms are just a bit to tight for me just no room to move around. For that reason i would look some where else next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great family hotel"
Very nice front desk help,very helpful. Great breakfast. Easy access to all doors.Genuine Expedia guest review
the room is to small. but it is clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was okay - it was clean, but dark and felt very "old" - towels thin, etc. For a quick night it was just fine - but if any longer, I'd pay a bit more and get a nicer place. Location was fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good night's sleep for overnight stay"
The pre-pay online was very convenient. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. There was a slight cleaning fluid smell when we entered the room, but that went away. The air conditioner was somewhat noisy. The staff was friendly and took care of us quickly. Overall, our experience was good for a one-night stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to the sights we went to see...."
Enjoyed our stay. Took the grandson aon and stayedhere for the pool but he never ent swimming but this hotel was close to Reiman Gardens and that was our main sight to see. Breakfast was great. -- air conditioner in the room a little noisy but had to be on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay for a family"
We booked online a two-day stay only, because we were not sure about the quality of the hotel. We came from Europe and our flight from Chigago to Des Moines was canceled, so we could not get to this hotel at the first day. I called and they kept our room reserved for us till we arrived, which was really nice. Kids liked the pool a lot. The breakfest […] was more than we could imagine, and the location was just perfect for us, so we decided to stay a whole week in this hotel. I can warmly recommend to anyone coming to Ames..
