GrandStay Hotel & Suites
GrandStay is a great choice
It met our needs perfectly. We were in Ames for ISU orientation. Hotel is convenient to ISU. We had a 2 bedroom 'suite' with a pull out sofa. It worked very well for our family. The pool area was both adult and child friendly. Bathroom is spacious. A well configured room with full fridge, oven top, dishwasher and microwave. It is connected to Chicago pizza.

Great location! Clean room! We'll stay here again if we are ever in Ames.

Good setup unless you need a stocked kitchen
Great setup for two bedrooms. Not a great breakfast, and the kitchen wasn't really usable because there were no cups, plates or silverware. Couldn't even microwave something because I didn't have anything to put it on. But service was friendly and as long as you don't need a kitchen or care about the breakfast (standard free continental fare), it's a great choice.

Would stay here again!
We went for a quick get-away. The room was late and accommodating (2 adults; 3 kids). Pool and hot tub were clean and the kids had a great time. The breakfast was hot and tasted good. Staff was friendly and helpful.
