Our stay was great. We were in Ames for a aunt's funeral and had to book last minute. The staff at the Hampton were very helpful not only for us but our extended family as well. The 1st night when we walked into our room there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the hotel extending their sympathy to us for our loss. This to me was a very kind gesture, going above and beyond customer service. I will make the Hampton of Ames my #1 place to stay in Ames.

Just overall sub-par compared to what I am used to. Checkin staff did not seem adequately trained. The rooms are very small. Halls smell like stale smoke. Breakfast fruit was uneatable (old/mushy) , Out of coffee, the area pool was so hot that it was uncomfortable, The fan in room was very loud and temperature hard to regulate. When I arrived Temp was at 78 degrees... I like it at 65. Temp was 70 degrees at departure at 9 am... Positives: The breakfast lady was very friendly.

This is a very nice small Hampton Inn. It is very warm and inviting. Lobby is small and quaint. Desk staff very welcoming and helpful. They had a map of Iowa State Univ. which is where we were heading and the gentleman at the desk gave us perfect directions. The rooms were clean and comfortable. It was very quiet as well considering the parking lot was very full. The breakfast was small but good. They had several cereals, breads, muffins, waffle maker, yogurt and fruit. The hot breakfast consisted of an omelet, potatoes and sausage. I look forward to staying at this location again.

The hotel was clean and the staff very helpful. Our meeting went well and the hotel staff was very accomodating. The WiFi could have been quicker in the meeting room, but I have found this to be an issue at many hotels.

I spent one night at the Hampton Inn as I could not make it home after work due to a snowstorm. The check-in staff were very efficient. What a nice surprise to see warm soup and cookies waiting for guests if they chose not to venture back out into the awful weather!
My room was on the first floor and was very clean and suited my needs. Very comfortable king size bed, large flat screen tv, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker available. Free wi-fi in the room. This is an older hotel, but has been remodeled. However, the walls seem a bit thin and could hear noise next door and in the hallway at night. My room door didn't seem to fit very well in the door frame and jiggled as people walked by. Thank goodness for the deadbolt and security latch!
I did use the exercise facility--one treadmill and one elliptical. The treadmill and elliptical were both Precors and were in good working order! Pool was small but adequate for the size of the hotel.
Breakfast the next morning was good. Hot items included cheese omelets, sausage, make your own waffles and a breakfast bagel sandwich. Cold cereal, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, breads and pastries rounded out the menu.
I prefer to stay in Hampton Inns when traveling. Was very thankful that this hotel had a spare room for my last minute booking! I would definitely stay here again if Mother Nature decides not to cooperate when it comes time for my commute home from work!

We love to really "wow" our guests and our team was excited to offer our guests fresh soup during the most recent blizzard that came through Ames! We can't wait to summer to arrive! Our team was thrilled to hear your review about our hotel, and we are sorry about the noise issues you had during your time with us! We have undergone many changes the past few years and we look forward to continuing to better our Hampton by using your feedback! We look forward to welcoming you back the next time your travels bring you to Ames!
