    We stayed here because it was walking distance to where my daughter had her basketball tournament. The staff was super friendly and made us feel welcome at all times. I will for sure stay here in the future.

    Visiting daughter in Ames. Very friendly staff. Adjustable beds. Very nice hotel. Will stay again when in Ames. Close to highway. Nice indoor pool. Clean and large room. I travel a lot and this ranks one of the best.
