The Best in Ames

I have been staying at the Gateway for years. The beds and bedding are second to none, the staff helpful and friendly and a good value for the level of service you receive. Great indoor pool and whirlpool and very adequate fitness room.

Not what it used to be

I had stayed at this hotel years ago and thought it was the best in the area. Unfortunately, despite it's high price tag, it was very disappointing. The air was so dry from the old room heater we could barely breathe. The bed and pillow were not at all comfortable. Breakfast prices were high, so we skipped it. It was disappointing the next morning to hear from others who stayed at less-expensive hotels and enjoyed much greater comfort and amenities. Won't make that mistake again.

Great Escape

Love the Gateway, stayed there several times when dropping off my grandson at Iowa State. It's a beautiful hotel, nice comfortable rooms and extremely helpful staff. If it had a mini fridge and microwave, it would be almost perfect for my kids, when travelling with the baby. For me it's great, a very relaxing experience.

Average

Great location and amenities with restaurant on-site. Rooms and overall experience were average as rooms and hotel are a bit dated.

Nice hotel for the right price

Room was comfortable and clean. Was a little outdated compared to some of the newer hotels in the area, but the rate made up for it. Restaurant on site was good.

I stayed here for a few nights with my dog while starting grad school. The hotel was extremely close to Iowa State and incredibly clean and comfortable. I'd stay here again.

Great Iowa representative

Went for a wedding held off-site-they were very busy with them that weekend. Enjoyed the trails around the property. they have plenty of info in the rooms about Iowa State University sights and events and information about Ames. The hotel restaurant and lounge has a great selection of local beers and spirits.

Nightlife tip: In Hotel

The Iowa Stater has a good selection of local Iowa brews on tap and a full selection of Iowa spirits. They offer a cocktail menu made with the Iowa spirits.

gateway Center getaway

Room and bed were very comfotable. It is pricey for Ames but if you need a quiet good night of rest it is well worth it.
