    Met our needs perfectly!
    Stayed there over the Christmas holiday because there were too many people for our parents house. Service was wonderful! Friendly customer service and very good breakfast selection.

    Had to stop for the night due to weather conditions and this was an excellent choice. Rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff was welcoming and friendly and the breakfast was great.

    The breakfast was really bad. House keeping didn't get to my room until 5pm Saturday. There shower didn't drain. The shower leaked. There toilet paper holder kept falling off the wall

    Very Good8,0
    Overall the stay was pretty good. The bed was quite comfortable, the room was spacious, and the noise level nearly negligble. As for dining options in the immediate area, these were rather limited. But traveling a few miles south and toward the downtown district you can find a number of options. My one real complaint with this property deals with the breakfast they served. It's your standard, cookie-cutter type of offering you see at numerous hotels. And I've no complaint with that. My beef is that the pancake machine didn't work, the omelets were cold, and the dry cold biscuits had no gravy to make them palatable. Essentially, anything that required a bit of preparation didn't seem as if it was really ready to be set out for serving. Items that served directly from a refrigerator or off of a tray (i.e. milk, cereal, fruit, etc) were okay. I ate at 6:15 am, after the breakfast started at 6:00 am. Other than that, the property is a pretty good option for the Ames area.

    Decent Highway Stop - Nothing Luxurious
    The lobby was nice and modern, but don't be fooled. The rooms aren't as updated as I've seen other Holiday Inn Express locations. The bathroom didn't seem that clean... there were soap bar wrappers and an old soap bar left in the shower. Not completely disgusting, just a lack of details. Location is perfect if you are traveling through. It's right off the highway.
