We stayed here four nights last week. Easy place to find. They are renovating and the place is looking good. Breakfast is good in the am, and the area to east it in is nicely organized and the tables and chairs are in good shape. Our room faced the pool, and there was noise and a bit of light from the courtyard got into our room which took a little getting used to. Other than that things were fine. Nice layout in the room makes it possible to cool the room without freezing out the persons in the bed closest to the a/c unit. Everyone was very nice and professional---nice people work here. I would stay here again.

I found myself traveling through Ames, IA. Had some business in a nearby town very early in the morning before I flew out of DSM.

Went to the hotel area off of highway 30 and Interstate 35.

There was not a room to be found due to some local events.

Finally drove through town and saw this place. Luckily they had one left.

Front deal guy was very courteous and helpful.

Room was decent, probably could have used a once over by the cleaning service. There were a few little areas that weren't up to par.

Lots of noise in the hallways. Doors slamming and loud people. That can't be blamed on the hotel.

Very easy access from interstate. Lots of parking.

All in all, it was a good place to stay. Will consider it again if I'm in the area.

We were INCREDIBLY disappointed in this hotel! The information doesn't tell you that the pool is only 3 ft deep in the deepest part. Plus, it was cold and smelled like pee! The courtyard around it was beautiful but the pool was a disaster!! We also tried to call the front desk to get more towels and blankets(only three towels in the room) and it rang busy the entire time of our stay. We walked down and received no explanation as to why it always ran busy. We had hair in our bathroom sink and found a child's toy by one of the beds. One towel had a gross something on it and our blankets had stains. The entire hotel smelled of smoke. We were in a non-smoking room so our room was okay but the halls were awful! The deadbolt in our room didn't work. Another room was actually TRAPPED in their room because the lock wouldn't allow them to open the door. A manager had to drive from an hour away and then used a CROW Bar to get the door opened. Good thing there was no fire. The breakfast was nice and the front desk was very friendly but this hotel is not maintained at all and the cleaning staff needs all kinds of help!! Never again! Oh, and we paid a premium for the room-it was $129.00 per night!!!!! We have stayed in $80/rooms that were MUCH better than this!

Room Tip: Don't stay here until they get better management or make some repairs, especially to the pool...

This is a very nice hotel however the pool is very cold. We were very excited about having a room so close to the pool so that was somewhat of a letdown. It would also be nice if this hotel had a spa however I don't think there is a spot for one. The rooms are nice I love to see how that of flat screen televisions looked.

Most of the rooms face out to the pool. Do not get one of these rooms! At 4:45 the staff starts clanging around to set up the continental breakfast and making as much noise as they possibly can. This area is adjacent to the pool. For over an hour until just before 6am the noise and their talking had to have woken up half the hotel. Pool was also cloudy. Yuck!

I stayed at the Quality Inn in Ames IA in November 2012. They have just done a remodel of their facility. I enjoyed my stay. I had a clean comfortable room on the second floor that was quite even though it overlooked the pool. I did stay Monday through Thursday however so no overcrowded pool on the weekend. The breakfast is nice and well kept up. This facility actually has a person dedicated to the breakfast area. The free High speed wireless was great and worked without a hiccup. Front desk staff are very polite and make you feel welcome.
