Feels like an on-campus experience!
The building is quite lovely and our 12 y/o really enjoyed the pool! Speaking of the pool, it is made for adults, too, as the greatest depth was 6 feet. I hadn't planned on swimming as many hotels stop at a lower depth, but I was pleased to experience this hotel's pool. Bonus was the pool area wasn't overpoweringly heavy with the stench of chlorine! Room service was pleasant and the food well made. The IowaStater restaurant was a delicious stop in the morning--so much so that our college students joined us and the breakfast buffet afforded them enough food as well. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant and professional. We will certainly return to this hotel!

Many better options in Ames area for similar price
Property is in serious need of updating. Interior furnishings are dated, rooms are overly dark, and heating/AC units are noisy. Easter brunch was pricey and not very good. Will avoid on future trips to visit our ISU student.

Pretty darn good!
The room was very clean and comfortable. Being able to bring our small dog with and leave her in the kennel while we had dinner was a bonus. We stayed here last year for the same Iowa State award ceremony and plan on doing the same next year. Thanks!
