The entire hotel was very clean. Lobby floors, hallways, pool, spa, room, bathroom and bed were all well kept and I felt comfortable right away.

No.

Stayed for one night after a football game. Hotel staff was pleasant and engaging at check-in. And the cleaning staff all greeted us and were very pleasant the next morning as we were leaving. Pool and spa were clean and provided nice place to relax after the cold football game. There is a restaurant and bar onsite, we did not eat or drink there, but the people that were seemed to be having a good time. I'd recommend staying here for anyone needing a clean and fresh place in Ames.

The pool was actually warm & clean, unlike most hotels. There were hot & cold breakfast options each morning.

The hallway floors were very creaky (noise) for such a nice looking hotel.

Overall we enjoyed our stay but it was unfortunate that the fire alarm went off in the middle of our second night. The staff seemed friendly, the hotel was clean, and the pool was warm.

The bed and bedding appeared to be clean. The bathroom was a nice size. The lobby is nice and the breakfast was good. The price was lower than others.

The bathroom door wouldn't shut. We were next to the stairs and the door slamming woke me up several times. The carpet was icky sticky. When I told front desk in the morning, they asked if there was anything they could do, but didn't offer options.

Convenient location to Iowa State University

Parking spaces are too narrow.

Hotel was better than the reviews I read on it. Staff was helpful, room was clean, and I did not smell cigarette smoke in my room. Overall, the hotel met its 2 star rating and was a good value for the price paid.

Where to start ... it was dirty, bath tub didn't drain, the sink didn't have a stopper, the screen fell out, the walls were smoke stained, the front desk wasn't helpful. It was a take it or leave it ... we already got paid so tough ... mentality.

Location was good & one reason for my selection. I've had good experience with Microtel in the past.

Very disappointed. Motel is not being maintained very well. Cleanliness has gone by the wayside. Staff tried to do a good job but I think they may have been short-staffed and under-manned during a busy time.

Stayed 3 nites & would have cancelled but thought maybe things might improve. Linens have seen better days - gray and well worn. Bedspread was wrinkly like it had been in a heap before put on bed. No service on 1st day. Partial service on 2nd day - towels were changed but used ones were left in pile in room. Sheets were never changed and bed was never remade during entire 3-day stay. I will never stay at this motel again.

Room was small and pretty basic. Definitely no 'frills', but it served its purpose.

The room is extremely comfortable and very clean. We were able to easily adjust the room's temperature if needed. The elevators are quick moving between floors and the staff is very polite and accommodating.

As mentioned before the rooms are clean and very comfortable. Those two things are always my main concern when traveling. The staff was polite both during check in and when we asked for an extension on our check out due to a conference we were in. We appreciated the free wifi throughout the hotel so we could do work after hours and stay in touch with family. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and well kept and the location of the hotel is central to both the interstate and to the ISU campus as well as restaurants.

The room was nice. The food at the Iowa restaurant was good. The pool was nice and warm. Great for children. Altogether it was a good stay. I would recommend it.

There was some mold in the grout on the tiles in the shower.

The hotel was close to the brown line of Cyride. So it was easy to get around the campus.

Staff,room, breakfast selections.

Pool was sufficiently heated on only one of the two days we stayed. There were not enough pool towels on hand for the number of swimmers.Restroom at pool was very dirty and cold - urine on floor.

The pool has always been a crap shoot as to water temps whenever we have stayed - sometimes good and sometimes lacking.

I liked the room size. Very spacious, lots of room for spreading out suitcases and gear.

I prefer to think the sheets were stained, not soiled. The heat made a noise all night, like the sound of a cell phone buzzing in the silent mode.

Hotel was located right off the expressway and was easy to find. Staff did not seem knowledgeable and kept us waiting at check-in for nearly 15 minutes. Cleanliness of room was questionable.

can't say anything good or bad about the place, I got there in time to go to sleep, and left a little after 4:30 AM so I didn't do much but sleep. The water was wet in the shower and the towel was dry, that's a good thing. I like the coffee in the room.

Great room for the price. Has mini fridge and microwave. Our room was recently updated.

Noisy residents in the middle of the night. HVAC unit was a little loud.

Hotel was doing construction. Our room had been updated and was very nice, but they were working on painting the halls and stair wells.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
