We have stayed at this hotel before and it was always satisfactory for the price. This time our room smelled very musty. They relocated us to a different room, but the smell was just as bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I got this hotel room for a friend coming to visit me. It was the best price around Ames, and it seemed pretty nice. Everything was fairly standard. The bathroom looked a little bit run down, but otherwise pretty much what you'd expect from any hotel. I enjoyed the free breakfast. There was an abundance of coffee, some waffles, cereal, etc. There were […] also biscuits and gravy which according to my friend were exceptional. I'd stay here again.

"close to interstae"
Stay was fine, tub had a little mold and pool was okay not cleaned great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy to find and close to our destination."
The room was comfortable- great mattress and pillows . Very clean. The rates were the best around the area. The location was easy to find. The clerk that checked us in was very pleasant. The breakfast was very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value stay"
Clean, updated room. Wifi worked well. A/C isn't thermostat-controlled, so only choices are on/off, and can't sit at the desk without it blowing on you, which was annoying. Breakfast had waffles and biscuits & gravy, along with the usual breads and cereals. Would like more protein options and fruit other than bananas, but par for the course for a 2-star […] hotel.

Perfect road trip stop . clean, good rates and great serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Did its job"
I spent three nights there for a family reunion in the area so I was able to take in the full experience. The pool needed to be cleaned and painted. Looks like they let a bunch of 10 year old's paint the pool area. The breakfast was ok. Biscuits and gravy with fruit and some pastries. The internet seemed to go in and out which makes it tough if you […] are traveling for business. Overall for the price it was a good deal. On a budget, this is probably your hotel.

"Room smelled musty"
Our room smelled musty, it was late when we checked in, and we had been driving for 12 hours plus. So I pulled the filter off the A/C unit and it was literally caked with dust! After working for 10-20 mins pulling off the layers of crud, the room smelled better. The next morning, hotel management was sympathetic and offered a discount, but our room […] was already paid for through Hotels.com...I suppose that it the draw back to using this service.

"Memorial day stay"
Everything was great. Needs some updating but was worth the price. Location is easy to find.Genuine Expedia guest review
"clean and affordable"
This is the second year in a row we have stayed here. The staff is friendly the rooms are clean the pool is small but well kept and the breakfast is actually decent. Its nothing fancy but is very affordable for what you get. We will deffenetly be back again next year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
for the price....nice, clean, hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The price of the hotel is modest and the accommodations match the price. Nothing too special, but nothing bad either. The breakfast was rather simple and standard, except for the gravy and biscuits (which I didn't try). I also didn't use the pool, though there were many families not staying in the hotel who would come and use the pool. The hotel worked […] fine for sleeping and heading off in the morning to the university. My only issue was the wifi, which would not let you log on for many, many attempts and then suddenly let you on. You had to click on a link to another website because the password itself didn't work on the login page (tried with two different browsers), but even that wouldn't let you on. And you'd face this issue every day when the connection was reset. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was just looking for a place to spend the night, so i didn't want to break the bank, and i didn't care about amenities... The room was clean, which says alot, considering it was a smoking room (by choice), the beds were comfortable, and the flat screen TV worked flawlessly. Other than that i can't really comment, as i arrived at 11pm, and was gone […] by 6 the next morning. Now it's not the Ritz, but if i was passing through town again, this is where i will stay.

"Great Bang for your buck"
For an inexpensive motel, these were some of the most comfortable beds I have experienced. Very good overall. Highly reccomendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fairly convenient location. Pool, but no hot tub-the sauna is exactly that. Room type booked was unavailable, so I was upgraded to a king suite at no additional charge. Staff was VERY helpful and accommodating. Hotel was noisy, but there were a bunch of AAU basketball teams staying there. Coffee maker was missing in room. Room was fairly clean, but […] the faucet on the tub had a drip, and the last person in the room left the drain closed, so the tub was half full of water when we walked in. Breakfast was OK-fresh waffles, biscuits and gravy, and the normal hotel continental breakfast fare. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location but thin walls!"
We enjoyed our visit for the most part. The staff was very nice and helpful! Our only complaint is how thin the walls and ceilings are. We could hear the guests upstairs walking around: every time they took a step, the floor creaked and it sounded like they were dropping bowling balls. The adjoining door of our room to the one next to us allowed us […] to hear every conversation and even hear the cell phone alarm of the guests next to us. It was very nice of them to ignore it and it went off for at least half an hour! We heard it every time it went off! The toilets don't have very much power behind them so don't plan on them not clogging. Ours clogged the first time we used it and when I asked for a plunger, they handed it to me instead of offering to help us. Overall, we enjoyed our visit. The staff were extraordinary overall!

"Nice Hotel for price"
Staff was friendly, room was clean, fine stay for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was cold when we got there and the heater was difficult to find a happy medium. A thermostat would help a lot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the room was clean when arrived, the front desk staff was very personable, the breakfast was standard. I was there for an event that had alot of highschoolers in the hotel and it was very quiet so that was a very pleasant surprise. For the money I would definately stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There was a dead bolt on the door, but no security chain I would have liked a hot tub, but we didn't have the time to use it anyway. Very quiet and comfortable bedsGenuine Expedia guest review

"Fairly close to ISU"
Overall, my daughter and I enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The hotel (especially our room) was very clean, and the breakfast was decent for an inexpensive night's stay. If we had wanted a large breakfast then we would have stayed at a more expensive hotel chain. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice stay for an over night business trip. friendly and helpful front desk staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"ISU - Family Weekend Get Away"
We were not in the hotel much but it provided a clean room, fridge and microwave. The hotel was booked to capacity but did not have a lot of noise traffic, that is always a plus. The free breakfast was o.k., same with the coffee. This is the second year we have stayed at this location as it is close to the ISU campus, but not so close that you would […] have to deal with a lot of campus car traffic.

Carpet had stains. Could not understand clerks accent. Breakfast nothing special. Cost too much for stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"older hotel, but clean and not expensive"
Room and most of furniture were fairly old, but clean. New mattresses were comfortable. Breakfast was not the best, not much variety/choices. Would probably stay at one of the newer hotels in town next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Smell, Dirty rooms"
Was mildly bad, way to expensive for the sad pathetic room. Sheets has small barely visible stains.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Weekend stay for summer athletics"
We stayed in the Econolodge because the rates were low and it was close to where we played basketball. It was the hottest weekend of the summer and our room was cool and comfortable, the beds were comfy and the room was clean. Everything we needed for a great weekend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was centrally located for us and close to excellent dining. No elevators.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value, but room smelled musty"
For the price, I was happy with the hotel, but our room had a strong musty odor. Continental breakfast was also very basic. Choose this hotel if you are looking for a low price, basic option.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"good deal for a nice room"
The room was fine, how ever the air conditioner had to be on full power to get the humidity out. The staff were great and were very friendly. The only issue was the room smelled a little bit, but air freshener took care of thatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
