Bad breakfast

Like all other of these type of ''hotels'' the complimentary breakfast is just poor.

Good Visit in Ames

We enjoyed our stay and visit with kids in the area. Our room was very roomy and equip with everything we needed. Everything went very well for us. We'll probably stay there again as it was closer to our son's home and closer to restaurants and the downtown.

Quick stay

Hotel was close to everything you would want or need. Clean, friendly staff. The breakfast was ok.. The room is small and the sun was shinning down on the milk and cream. Maybe should be moved away from sun light

The room was clean, but hallways and trash cans outside the motel were not. Adequate motel for one night.

OK for the price

If you need place to stay and want it at budget price, this will do. The location is not great on busy Duff Ave., and the hotel itself is very basic. But the room was clean and did the trick for the one night I needed it.

Good but limited breakfast

There were no eggs even hard boiled at breakfast. The cereals were limited and tended towards children's tastes. Otherwise, it was very good. Near shopping.

A night in Ames

Good moderately priced room. Well located. Easy to get to. Clean enough. Wash clothes were great, towels a little thin. Breakfast was skimpy, biscuits and gravy were the only warm item.

The hotel is reasonably priced, clean and at a good location. It is an easy walk to Main Street, but not really walking distance to ISU.

nice for the price

the hotel is near shopping and many restaurants and not terribly far for Iowa State U. the room was a decent size and was clean. It was nothing fancy, but for the great price, you can't expect fancy! Great for adults or older children, but not much going on for small children.
