Traveling thur Iowa

Traveling back from AR , chose Country Inn Suites because of their room rate thur I found on-line. Check-in went very smooth, pleasant Front Desk, Cookies and Coffee available 24/7, Convenient parking and a Great Breakfest way beyond just Continental Style. Would recommand 'Highly".

Quick overnight stay - CI&S Ames

It was OK - room was nice but somewhat small. Front desk person was not overly nice and helpful. I waited at the front counter a couple of minutes before being helped. Continental breakfast was very good.

Great value - Close to Iowa State

I stayed at this hotel while my son attended a camp @ Iowa State. The staff was very helpful with my inquiries on movie theaters, restaurants, nail salons, etc. Breakfast was great, the pool and hot tub were very clean. The room was a bit musty, and treadmills in the fitness center did not work well. Overall, though, a pleasant stay. Quiet!!
