"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

I liked having the extra plug-ins at the desk that were easily reached for computer and cell phone and no extra charges for internet hoop-up. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Breakfast was very adequate and ready early.
"Everything We Could Ask For"
We just got back from spending the weekend at this home away from home hotel. We went to the homecoming game at ISU and felt like we were home. The warm lobby had overstuffed chairs, a nice fireplace, warm cookies and snack...mmm. The staff were friendly and hospitable. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The breakfast buffet had a nice variety of breakfast food and was very clean and well stocked. It had a nice pool area. We were very pleased. The cost was also very reasonable. If we ever come back we'll definitely come back.
"Ok for what it is??"

Never ate the breakfast. Never used the pool. Never had anyone clean our room by choice. WIFI sucked. Was in town to stay as a couple of us photograph a big weeklong race in Boone, Iowa. Nothing bad to say about the room. Was ok. Bed was comfy. no problems The night staff girl helped us out by getting some small tables to set our computers up etc as not much for tables in the room. We got a 2nd floor room as it was the only one for the suite as we needed the space. Sadly with NO elevator we had to carry many items up the stairs and down. Not just a bag of clothes. Next... big hinderance. INTERNET sucked here. We have many photos to upload and get where they need to go. Internet was basically non existent for our stay. Yes it was there but never really worked to top speed or even close. Complaining did no good. We got to bed early every morning. Like 3 to 5 am. So we sleep late. Not sure if it was the last morning or the 2nd to last morning. But the sawing, hammering, and drilling started somewhere around 830 or 9am and continued till I had had enough of it about an hour later and walked out of my room and poked my head in the room next door that the maintenance guy was making all the noise . He looked over and asked if the noise was to loud or bothering me. I said no, we are just trying to sleep and went back to my room. Seemed with any complaint we had, with out trying to be butts and not like I wanted anything for free.. But it was just. We are sorry. Otherwise.. bigger parking lot. You aint getting much where this is located other than a mexican restaurant and a Kum and Go convenience store down the street along with a TON of motels. Oh yea and a big SCREW job on the last night we were there as the room rate went up a $100 bucks cuz of the ISU football game in town Saturday.

Like hard beds, no recliners, pool had a lot of chemicals, rooms smelled funny and heated very well. Food in kitchen was average, rooms were clean and the service was really the only thing that would bring me back.
"Warm and Cozy Great Place to Stay"
10/06/14 Jodi P Seward, Nebraska
We have stayed at AmericInn several times over the past 3 years and cannot tell you how wonderful the experiences have been. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. The environment is welcoming and the décor beautiful. You can get a very good night stay because of the quiet atmosphere. AmericInn is Highly recommended for all!
"Good hotel for good price"
10/06/14 Margaret L Iowa City, Iowa
I'm on a college budget and for the price (which was one of the most affordable in the area), I had absolutely no complaints and could ask for nothing else from the AmericInn of Ames. The staff was very friendly both for my late night check in and when I went to check out in the morning. Breakfast was good and the room and bathroom were clean and comfortable.
"ALWAYS VERY CLEAN"
09/30/14 JIM P Columbia, Missouri
I have stayed at this hotel two or three times a year for the past nine years . Their staff always welcomes me and go out of their way to be sure I am taken care of . There is a Mexican restaurant right next door that serves excellent food . Everything in and outside the hotel is very neat and clean , including their well stocked breakfast room . I travel with my dog and they welcome pets . Just a great place to stay .

I checked in early, the room was nice and clean. There was a microwave and refrigerator that were clean and ready to use. The bed had plenty of pillows and was very comfortable! They had a great breakfast, with sausage and hash browns one day and biscuits and gravy the next. Plenty of variety and the eating area was very clean and kept up! It was a great place to stay, and i would recommend this motel to others and I will stay there again!
"Very Nice Place to Stay in Ames Iowa"

This hotel is close to campus,has clean rooms,the hotel personnel were friendly and helpful, had the typical breakfast food, rooms were quiet and dark rooms, close to restaurants...would stay there again

I stay in Ames about once a month. I have stayed in many of the different hotels here. While some are cheaper, the Americinn is the best place for the money. The rooms are kept in good condition and the front desk is always very friendly. The whole experience staying here is pretty good. I would say though, that they may want to think about expanding, recently I've had a couple of last minute trips pop up and they've been booked up.
