"Basic room - but there was a smell of some sort -"
The room was like any other but there was a smell like a chemical or like someone had had an accident ???? Otherwise was OK -Genuine Expedia guest review
This motel is not fancy, but very comfortable for one night at a good price. Staff was very accomodating in giving us a ground floor room away from the highway, and they were very friendly. Breakfast was satisfactory. We did not use the pool so no opinion about that. Room temp easy to regulate.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our room was in bad, bad need of a remodel.We were greeted in our room by a strong musty/mildew odor. Carpet was torn and shredded. I bet the pillows had been there since the 70s. Lobby was fine, but room was horrendous. Arrived at 10 pm and was too tired to do anything else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to event"
It was excellent! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was also good, especially when we saw we could make our own Belgian waffles! We were very rested when we left Ames and will stay again on our next trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and comfortable for the price"
Stayed with our 3 children. Asked for a rollaway bed when we arrived and within only several minutes had one delivered to our room with extra pillows! The staff person helping stock breakfast in the morning was also very friendly and kept things well stocked and clean. Basic breakfast food...wish they would have had yogurt or different fruit besides […] just bananas...but otherwise good variety. Our room smelled quite musty but we opened up a window to help with that, otherwise the room itself seemed clean. We are repeat visitors to this hotel and will stay again when in the area.

"NOt as previous reviews but ok"
Pros-great water pressure, warm all through shower. Bathroom clean. Front desk staff very good. Cons-dirty carpet! Old appearing hotel, definitely a budget hotel. Breakfast was disappointing. Very little to choose from. Long line at waffle station. Lady manning front desk also trying to keep busy dining area stocked. SHe was very polite. Pool very small. […] We thought we'd watch the football game, ISU vs IA state but wasn't on! With such a big game in town and tickets sold out long ago would have thought would have been able to watch in room. Had to leave hotel to watch the game so spent very little time there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed here for Boone Supernationals. It did the job when it comes to a place to sleep but rooms were lacking on pillows. Not all of the outlets worked. The room smelled like a swamp so we had to have the A/C ful blast the whole time, which was quite loud. Breakfast was really good but no healthy options for the most part. We definitely got what […] we paid for, but have stayed in hotels in the similar price range and have been much more satisfied with our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Golf outing stay"
Hotel was in conveinent location but facility was run down. Room smelled like mildew and was dirty. Entire facility needs make over.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK for a pit stop off of interstate"
Overall an OK hotel. No frills, but basically clean place to get sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Motel easy to locate and adequate parking"
Pleasant stay and room was great. The microwave still had food in it from the previous evening and the pop machine was out of the pop we wanted. No big deal though. We believed the breakfast went until 10 am but 15 minutes before that it was pretty much shut down; we just went to another business. We left an article of clothing hanging in the room but […] was over an hour away when we noticed so advised the motel. They said they would check on it when housekeeping cleaned the room and call us back; never happened. I guess we bring our own pop from now on and do a better job of checking the room over before we leave. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Our room has blood or chocolate on curtains. Way too old bed (sags in middle) and furniture that reminded me of my first apartment. Breakfast was ok. Pool made my skin itch. Tubs are slippery. No hot tub. The clientele was day laborers. Nothing against that but this bunch had me locking my door and walking everywhere in pairs. Will pay more next time […] to stay elsewhere Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pool not so great"
You get what you pay for, right? Well, we like to stay at the more inexpensive hotels so we have more money for fun, and many of them have been very nice, but this was not one of them. Our toilet looked like it was going to fall over at any second, the pool was disgusting, looked a little green and ad my daughter kept saying, "tasted salty", obviously […] not kept up well. The breakfast was a normal cheep hotel breakfast, except they did have biscuits and gravy, which was a welcome treat. The room smelled a but moldy, sometimes that happens at hotels with pools. The room did have enough space for our pack n play, so that was nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean. Breakfast in the morning was little to nothing if you weren't there when it opened. Not stocked very well - no coffee, fruit or bagels or anything like that. Had to make our own coffee since canisters were all empty. Tables needed to be cleaned. Pillows in room were 1/2 size and flat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant hotel for the price"
Stayed here on a Monday night in August and the staff was very friendly. The room had a slight musty odor but did not last long. The room was very clean as was the bathroom. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The room had a fridge, microwave, and decent coffee pot. Breakfast was included and had the usually plus waffles and biscuits and gra […] vy.

"nice for the price"
Stayed here on way home from state fair as no rooms were available in Des Moines. Was nice, clean, quiet. All we did was sleep there, got up in morning and left for home but was good for that, and I am sure would be good for a stay where we would have used the hotel for more than just a nights rest too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room could have been a little bit bigger. But otherwise I was satisfied with my stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worked for us"
All we needed was a bed for one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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.

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.

"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.

"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!

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

"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.
