A bit run down, but not bad

The rooms were a bit run down, but the lobby was nice with a big fireplace when you walked in. Had some issues with the breakfast area...food running out and dirty tables. I'm not sure they were ready for a New Year's Eve rush

Short stay in Ames

The hotel was very good, backed up with very friendly and efficient staff, very ably led by the General Manager, Sarah. The rooms are a very good size and comfortable.The breakfast was very good every day. There are eight hotels in the very near vicinity, and my guess is they are all very similar. You really need a car to be in these hotels as there are in the middle of nowhere, and taxes are around but soon work out very expensive. Altogether a very enjoyable stay.

Ames AmericInn

The hotel was very clean, warm, and inviting. The pool area was spacious and very clean. Upon entry in the hotel, an individual notices the fireplace, cathedral ceilings and homey decor. The room smelled fresh and was perfect for a family of five.

Ups and Downs

Charming lobby with fire in fireplace, Christmas tree, cocoa, jigsaw puzzle, friendly staft, But...plumbing problems and no off-hours maintenance. Toilet plugged, moved rooms, toilet plugged there too. We were given a plunger which was required every couple of flushes. Who wants to have to do THAT every time someone used the bathroom? This is a problem bigger than a single room, so they should address it SOON.
