"Perfect for ISU Visit!"
We found the hotel clean, convenient and quite comfortable! The rooms were larger than we expected and the option of complimentary breakfast was very nice. Also....enjoyed the chairs out front for an evening glass of wine on a perfect fall day!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"For sleeping only."
The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. Breakfast was decent. There was no TV reception or internet the night I was there and the curtains did not block out the sunlight in the morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what I expected..."
The staff at Comfort Inn was friendly upon check in. The lobby and grounds of the hotel looked well maintained. Once we got into our room and utilized the pool, everything changed. We were in a King suite, and it didn't meet my expectations. A fire sprinkler was hanging out of the wall, the furniture was mildly stained, the ventilation was not good […] and the room wasn't cleaned completely from the last use. For being a King suite, the decor was bland - lots of blank white walls. Visually, the room quality didn't reflect the price - very dated look. We utilized the pool on this visit with mixed feelings about it. The pool temp was nice, but the whirlpool had cold water jetting out and was not relaxing. There were only a few of us using the pool, but there were zero towels on the shelf. The ventilation in the pool area was not good as well. I feel that the air temp in the pool area was hotter than the whirlpool. The food for breakfast was of good quality. There was cold air blasting out of vents making the hot breakfast quickly a cold breakfast. The breakfast area was by no means hot either. We couldn't find a table where there wasn't cold air blasting on us. Overall, for the money, I don't feel that I got what I paid for. On the surface, everything looks good, but underneath it all there's a lot that is keeping this hotel from being top-notch. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quick stop in Ames"
Service was professional. Room was quiet and clean. Continental breakfast was above average. Perfect for a quick stay over.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very Good!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There are so many things good to say about our stay there. We were there 2 nights. The coffee, cookies and friendly reception staff is the first plus. The pool area was wonderful and so was our room. I cant say enough about the great breakfast and the woman attending it was super nice. We enjoyed happy hour 1 evening too and what another nice perk for […] travelers. We would stay there again and recommend the motel to anyone staying near Ames. Gret job. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonably priced hotel"
The hotel was fine, but the hot tub was less than desirable. It smelled like dirty water and when we asked the front desk to check the chlorine level, they said they had tested it that morning and it was fine. This was 7pm at night and obviously, there was an issue.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Value & Good Amenities"
Front Desk went the extra mile to help me print my boarding pass.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was friendly, room was clean, breakfast was good - several options. We were going to Iowa State University and this was about a 10 minute drive. Would stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just a couple little things"
We stayed at the Country Inn Suites last weekend. The location was great - just a few minutes from the Hilton Coliseum and close to lots of restaurants. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The only two little things were the heater in the room seemed to either go on robo-power or we had to turn it off. The "low" didn't work, but we never […] said anything about it either. The plumbing in our room was having issues, but the staff was very prompt in addressing our concerns. Staff was nice, breakfast was great (the waffles were wonderful), All in all a great place to stay. Would go back again, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good, basic lodging"
This is a nice and clean hotel. The staff is quick and courteous and condition is good. Our family stays here annually and it's a great place if you have children because the pool is large and fun. There's a nice and large hot tub in one corner of the pool area. The free breakfast, however, is of poor quality, although there are many food choices.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Like staying in a haunted hotel!"
10/21/14 Eric C Chicago, Illinois
This hotel was fine for this price category with one major exception: the floors are way too thin! We couldn't sleep for hearing the foot traffic upstairs. I don't the believe the people above us were doing anything usual, but their footsteps caused our ceiling to creek and squeak like ghosts were trying to drive out of the hotel. This phenomenon was unique just to our room as we could tell when someone above us was walking to elevator at the same time we were by noise following us along. Then, when the elevator came down from the floor above and the door opened, viola, there they were! Otherwise the place was clean and quite adequate for our brief stay, but if you can't sleep, what difference does it make? If you stay here, be sure to get a room on the top floor.
"Exactly what we expected"
10/14/14 BDKBS Chicago, Illinois
Hotel is in a quiet area not really near much as far as restaurants are concerned. A very short drive to the main area where you can find any restaurant imaginable, but there is nothing really within walking distance. We were there for an Iowa State college visit and the hotel is only a few minute drive to campus. Check in was quick, rooms were clean and beds comfortable. We were there during the week so not too busy. In fact the place looked vacant when we pulled in the lot. Breakfast was decent and did the job. Only negative was the room heater was kind of loud when it would turn on and off, and it seemed like it was constantly shutting down then within a few minutes turning back on again. If you are a light sleeper as I am, this may be annoying. My teen son didn't even notice the noise. Other than that, had no complaints for the price we paid - $100 for the night.

I was here as part of a group and enjoyed my stay. The hotel is a little older but is nice and clean with great staff. Conveniently located near major highway and walking distance to a really good Mexican restaurant.
"Just what I needed"
10/08/14 Tim E Minneapolis, Minnesota
After a long day and then driving for 4 hours we needed a comfortable and quiet place to stay. We chose the Country Inn in Ames, IA. . The room was clean and up to date. I enjoyed the heavy comforter. Slept extremely well. The breakfast in the hotel was excellent. The Inn exceeded all our expectations.

This is a very nice motel. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was very good this morning, with different items to choose from. I would definitely stay here again when I am in this area!
"Ames Country Inn and Suites"
Every time I stay at this hotel I am treated as if I am their best customer. Great staff and they are always friendly and accommodating of my needs. Hotel is very clean, and the rooms are so quiet. I highly recommend.

Easy check in/check out. Friendly staff - all of them!! Clean rooms, comfortable bed, delicious continental breakfast and two complimentary drink tickets! I would recommend this hotel to anyone and have booked rooms again for our daughter's college graduation.
"Gross soiled sheets"
09/22/14 Patrick D Buffalo, United States
I have never stayed at a hotel where the sheets were so unsatisfactory - stained, marked, soiled, not changed, and otherwise gross. We called to the front desk and they sent up sheets as bad as the first and we had to make the bed ourselves. We did not try for a third set of sheets. When I reported this the next morning, the person at the desk apologized and said that was too bad. No offer to make it right, no indication that it would be reported. It seemed to me as a kind of, "Oh, that's too bad. Sorry."
09/22/14 Jon D Lincoln, United States
What a great hotel for the price. The staff was very friendly. The pool was heated and we really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and te breakfast was excellent. We would definitely stay there again next time we are up that way.
