Got a pretty good deal on this hotel via Priceline. Included free breakfast, not bad, and had indoor pool/hot tub for the kids. The layout of the place (think "L" shape with lobby on the end) means if your room is not on the first or second floor near lobby, you will have a long walk to get to your...

We stayed overnight and enjoyed out stay. We had a prepaid room for under $90. We used the pool table ($1) in the pool area but did not use the pool. It looked to be well cared for. Room was fine. Sink in bedroom is behind a wall from the room and not in bathroom with the tub/toilet. Not an...

Clean room, nice lobby environment, decent breakfast (better than some similar chains). But, hot tub not functional, locals using pool took up the bathroom for close to an hour, and when I expressed dissatisfaction with these problems, front desk told me that on another day, I would not have had these problems. Good grief-- I was there on THAT day....

Would not check me in until they investigated. Stood at counter for 25 minutes waiting, finally got a room key. Went to room, keys did not work. Walked back to front desk, reset keys which worked...

I recently attended a conference in Ames for business. It's an annual event. In my earlier years, I had stayed in a nearby hotel. Let's just say there is a reason I continue to stay at this AmericInn. They consistently provide a pleasant experience. Warm, inviting and friendly attitude. Clean, quiet and spacious rooms with many amenities including snacks during...

Very happy with our experience at Ames, IA Americinn. Friendly staff and extremely helpful at front desk. Warm inviting lobby with complimentary snacks and drinks throughout the day and evening. Breakfast provided options such as eggs, sausage, waffles, pastries, bagels, yogurt, cereals, and fruit. Would recommend to anyone. Wifi was fast and beds comfortable.

We continually return to AmericInn in Ames, IA during the Iowa Music Festival for Opus Honor Choir and the High School Music Festival with our middle school and high school students. The staff remembers us and treats us like family. I have also stayed without my students and have received the same warm welcome!

This was our second stay at AmericInn in Ames. We have stayed at other places while visiting our son at ISU but AmericInn has equaled or exceeded other hotels and it is less money. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and the hotel has stayed up to date in decor and furnishing. Will stay here again.
