Quick overnight in Ames

The staff was really great! This property is really set up nicely for longer stays - room has full kitchen. Bed was very comfortable - the rest of the room was nice for what we needed. Hot breakfast was just okay.

The hotel was a great place to stay for our family! The room was spacious. The pool was a lot smaller than the photo, but was nice. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was tasty. Overall it was nice. We will stay here again.

Everything we need

We visit Ames several times a year. We have decided, that we will book at Grandstay from now on. The rooms are in good shape (we've stayed in a 2-bedroom suite and in a regular two bed room) the kitchens are VERY clean and well stocked, the hot tub is a good size, and finally, there is a bar attached.

Grandstay

Stayed one night.. Suite was clean, comfortable and very spacious.Love having the extra room. Would be great for a small family. Only negative was the drain in the shower was a bit sluggish. Directly connected to an Old Chicago restaurant which is convenient. Also, a nice Japanese Steak House and Sushi bar was just across the parking lot. I would stay here again for sure!

Great lodging for large families!

Our experience at this hotel was great! Our family of 7 felt right at home here! Super comfy beds, restaurants nearby and a yummy breakfast in the morning. Another plus is they give you access the the nearby Anytime Fitness to work out while you are there. Loved this place!

Football weekend

Stayed here for a Cyclone game. Great location. Nice that it's connected to Old Chicago. Suites are very spacious will high vaulted ceilings making it not seem like a motel room.

Trying to be something it's not

The room layout is good, but it's built extremely cheaply and it shows (cheap doors, light fixtures, etc.). Breakfast is lacking. Only advantage is Old Chicago restaurant is attached so you can get food easily.

Good place to stay in Ames!

My daughter and I scheduled a visit at Iowa State University and wanted a nice, inexpensive hotel stay for one night. We were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff as well as the cleanliness of the hotel rooms and common areas. Would stay there again on our next visit!

Dining tip: In Hotel

Although we were not hungry upon our arrival, there is an Old Chicago Restaurant attached to the hotel, which I believe is an added feature. Also, only a few miles to Iowa State!
