Reviewed yesterday NEW

Perri at the front desk was very helpful in giving suggestions for local restaurants and activities. Running trail close and easy to get to is very nice. Workout facility is great, all the equipment works and it even offers free weights. Great stop close to the highway.

I use to stay across the street at Quality Inn. I stayed here my last visit to Ames. WOW what a difference. The staff at the Holiday Inn are great and friendly people. Ian at the front desk is a nice person to talk to. The gentlemen that runs the breakfast would greet you every morning and really took pride...

In Ames for one evening, the hotel was easy to find, right off I-35. Ian at the front desk made check-in a breeze. He also made an excellent dinner recommendation. The room and entire hotel was clean and met my needs.

I stay in Ames for business a couple of times a month. There are many hotel choices in town, but the Holiday Inn Express & Suites always offers a great stay. The staff is always friendly and efficient, and the rooms are quiet and clean.

Just off I-35, very easy to get to. Close proximity to fuel, food. Very friendly and helpful staff--characteristic of N. Central Iowa. Everything was in order and the fast check-out receipt was slid under the door early AM. Made the trip through Iowa very easy. I plan to stay here again, at least 2 x's / year, as I travel...

Very good staff and rooms, breakfast and lack of noise very refreshing. In my business travels I stay at a lot of different motels and locations. The room and service were very good. The free breakfast was appreciated and enjoyable.

I stayed at this location with several friends overnight. The front lobby, rooms and bar area are very nicely decorated and modern. There were 6 of us in our party and we were given adjoining rooms (much appreciated). Rooms: very clean and nice. Very comfortable beds!!! The only area needing attention was the bathroom and in front of the sink....

We stayed one night for a business trip. With not knowing the area very well, Ian at the front desk helped pick somewhere for Dinner. He was spot on in his suggestion. If we are ever back in the area, we will being staying here again.

My room was clean and Ian at the front desk took good care of me. I had forgotten my shaving kit and they fixed me up with a razor and shaving cream. I also liked the breakfast and was pleasantly surprised to find turkey sausage and a vegetable omelet. Everything on the breakfast bar was fresh and hot.

Hotel was bright, clean and staff was very accommodating to my needs. Ian at the front desk actually looked for the brightest room in the hotel because I told him I had a lot of work to do and needed the sunlight as my motivation. What a great guy and a great hotel.
