ISU Parents Beware - Better place to stay in Ames!

Checked in and after having made reservation for two rooms on-line, and thought they were both paid for. Hotel staff said I had only one room, so I had to give them my credit card for another room. Got keys and went to dinner since it was 7:30 in the evening, and looked up on my computer my receipt. I had reserved and paid for 2 rooms! When we got back we went to our rooms and found out that one was filthy. Housekeeping hadn't even been there yet. Dirty towels on floor, unmade bed. Went back down to desk to ask for new room and to show them that I had in fact paid for 2 rooms and asked that they credit the one room back. They refused saying I would have to call who I booked it through even though I had a receipt. Total nightmare, and horrible staff and service. Breakfast was the worst, machines broken and eggs that tasted like plastic. Super over priced for what you get especially in Iowa. Parents coming down to ISU should stay elsewhere!

Hickory Park. Strap on the feedbag for some great BBQ at a very reasonable cost. Try desert first - extensive menu.

When asked staff for directions they were not very familiar or knowledgeable about the area. We wanted a King size bed and when we asked we just got a nope and not even a check on the computer. Had a refrigerator in room but it didn't work, asked staff to take a look at it but nothing was ever done. The beds were lumpy and very hard to get a good night sleep. Went to get ice since refrigerator didn't work and no ice would come out, response I got is it should be working. The shower in the room had no pressure and was hard to get my long, thick hair clean. Couldn't get any pressure and so shower was not very good or refreshing.

Convenient

A nice hotel with simple accessories like the continental breakfast and pool. The breakfast was more than some hotels serve for a full breakfast. The pool area was a bit warm - too steamy to take pictures, but did provide a comfortable swim experience. Staff always acknowledged your presence with a good morning or good evening - super job.
