"Don't let the price fool you."
Very impressed. Everything was better than expected. larger pool, variety for breakfast and pleasant atmosphere. I was very leery with the price when we have paid 3x that at other hotels and received very little. Would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very pleased with our stay. The rooms were nice and clean, the breakfast was great, and the pool was perfect for our kids. The only complaint I have with this hotel is the door to our room was very hard to close. They have plaques on every door that say "close door tightly" but the cleaning staff even had a hard time making sure the doors were […] locked. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place, especially if just passing through."
I've stayed in a couple of hotels in Ames and this was the best experience. Averaged price and very clean. The location is the only thing that could have been better. It's great for someone just passing through, right of I-35 and highway 30. The only thing in walking distance though is a mexican restaraunt. If you're looking for night life, the cabs […] can take awhile also. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very pleasant atmosphere"
We were very pleased with our stay at the AmericInn in Ames. Other hotels in the area seemed to have raised their rates for the big Iowa State game that weekend. While it wasn't a steal, the rate was still reasonable. The open lobby area and large kitchen area gave the hotel a welcoming gathering space. The staff was helpful and friendly when I asked […] where I could go to walk in the area (there's not a great place, unfortunately, but there wasn't much traffic to contend with either), and the kids enjoyed the pool, though they did mention the water was cold. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable; we appreciated the fact that each bed had three pillows. There were no bad smells of smoke or mildew, which we've had to contend with in many other hotels. The breakfast was sufficient, and refilled often, since there was a good crowd. Overall, a very nice place to spend the night! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed our two-night stay very much! The continental breakfast was good. Our family enjoyed the pool although the water was a bit too cool. The rooms were nice and close together. We may stay here again if we are in the area for an overnight stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Decent if getting for a cheap price"

The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. However, I found the cleanliness of the rooms and pool area to be below standard. The internet is very slow, do not plan on using your laptop for work in the evening unless you pay for the upgrade.

We checked in on Saturday afternoon and by the looks of the parking lot, they were booked. We got right up to reception and checked in quickly. the room looked like it had been remodeled. very nice room

This was a great place for our family reunion. We were able to secure a hospitality room where we could gather and enjoy each other. The kids really enjoyed the pool area and the breakfast held lots of variety, excellent coffee, wonderful waffles, and eggs, etc. The breakfast hostess was there each morning with a smile! The front desk was very welcoming and provided excellent service each day. Be sure to ask for a map of the town and university which was really helpful. Some of us enjoyed the Mexican restaurant nearby. Be sure to ask for a first floor room if you are unable to handle stairs. I did not see an elevator and several of our elders and those with canes/wheelchair needed a room on the first floor. The front desk did an speedy job of switching rooms to accommodate these family members. Plenty of free parking and only a short drive to downtown (restaurant row, Target, etc.). The room was very nice and the bed most comfortable. Housekeeping ladies also provided excellent service and offered a friendly greeting each day. I'm sure we will continue to book our housing for reunions and other special events in the future at AmericInn in Ames. Thanks to all who work there.
"Bad Mattress!! Over priced!"
07/09/14 K. W Fairfax, Iowa
Overpriced. Poor excuse for a mattress. I was told when making the reservation that the mattress' were at the most 2 years old. The tag on our mattress (felt more like a box spring) was 2004. Inconsistent wi-fi. Shower was loud and weak! $40 overpriced for the quality of rooms! Manager gave me the wrong number to call the corporate office.

I have stayed at AmericInn in Ames, IA many times and have received exceptional service every time. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The room has always been very clean and cozy. I will stay here every time I am in the area.

We just returned from a two night stay at this hotel. The rooms were okay for what they were but definitely not clean I wiped on the wall in the bathroom and took dirt off with the washrag might try it again but only in a discounted rate
"Quality hotel for the price"
06/19/14 Roberta F Holmen
We visited Ames, IA for my daughter's college orientation. We stayed one night and everything was good. The only comment I would like to make is the water temperature for both sink and bath was scalding hot. Definitely could seriously burn someone if not noticed right away. Probably could save some cost on the energy bill if the water heater was turned down a few degrees. Other then that everything else was good. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was very satisfying.
"Comfy beds and great breakfast and service!!!"

Pool was fun for the kids. Hot tub, pool table, new comfy beds, and rooms were all great! Friendly and helpful staff, pet friendly, clean and spacious rooms. Great location! Will be staying here again!!!!
