My son is a senior at Iowa State University and hotels for events there sell out early. Move-in is no exception. Knowing this, I booked a room for August move-in back in March, at the yet-to-be opened Town Place Suites next to this Fairfield Marriott property. The new hotel was supposed to be open by the beginning of August. In... More

Santoshi was a great manager while staying in Ames. She was great help and a great visit. She helped us find a good place to eat and made good conversation when we got back from eating, I would recommend anyone staying here while she is in charge.

Traveling cross country, we ran into a heavy thunderstorm and decided to stop our drive early. There is a cluster of motels just off the interstate at this college town,and we picked the Fairfield based on a quick glance at reviews. Better than expected with friendly staff, clean and quiet rooms, and a good selection for continental breakfast.

Fairfield and Santoshi, at the front desk, was able to give us a great room at a great price! 2 Queen room that was kept very clean, a... More

The Fairfield Inn and Suites in Ames, IA is practically brand new. The entire property inside and out is in great condition. Unfortunately the air conditioner in my room was having an issue. The person working the front desk, Santoshi, went way above and beyond her responsibilities to make sure I had a wonderful experience at her hotel. She actually... More

We were in the area and stayed 4 nights at this hotel. We had a 2 queen room. We enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfast. The kids especially liked the waffle maker. They also enjoyed the indoor pool, though it was a bit chilly. The wifi worked well. The beds were comfortable and we felt very safe in this hotel.

We were here for 1 week for dance competition and our stay was excellent. The staff was very helpful. There was a boys basketball team from Nebraska that came in on Friday and they were rude,noisy and disrespectful to others but the staff was excellent in quickly handling the situation.
