We were here for a wedding. A long way from the UK but we found this hotel, thanks to our US relations and it turned out to be a Jewel of a Hotel. Ames is the home of Iowa State University and apart from that it is a mid western American small town. Very nice, affluent and pleasant to look around. Why then is there such a good hotel effectively in the middle of almost nowhere? Who cares - enjoy it if you are in the area. Good points. Staff - smart, friendly & nothing too much trouble, the rooms - large, clean and well appointed, public areas, pool & gym. The bad point and the only thing i can honestly say was disappointing was the breakfast, very hit or miss, although the porridge (USA oatmeal) was good. If you are in the area you can rely on this hotel to deliver - try it - but its a long way from anywhere apart from Ames - took us 7 hours from Chicago.
