I stayed at this hotel for one night. Check in was very simple, the attendant was very courteous and efficient. Parking was easy, close to front door. My room was clean, temperature when I entered the room was good, not hot and stuffy and not freezing cold. The pillows were amazing!!! I would definitely recommend this hotel to others!

Stopped into this hotel on our way through Iowa for business. Noemi at the front desk was helpful getting us checked in, plus she was a fellow Texan, so there is that. Definitely worth stopping by if you are in the area. Restaurant and bar located at the hotel, rooms are pretty standard.

The staff at the from desk was a great help! Noemi was happy to assist with all of our crazy "out of towner" questions! To top it off we were given a town map, no one else has done this. The rooms are pretty standard, nothing to fancy.

This was a very warm and welcoming place to stay while visiting Ames, Iowa. The front desk staff (Jarrett and Noemi) were helpful in providing me with nice dinner options and places to see during my stay. The hotel rooms were nice; however, they do appear to need updating (e.g., hairdryers, quality of the shower and shower head, grout on...

Carol at the Holiday Inn was FANTASTIC to work with. I was bringing a bus full of farmers to Ames to tour local business and Carol and the Holiday Inn staff were amazing.

I was in town to visit ISU and recruit at the career fair. The staff was very nice and Jon made sure I was comfortable. It is always cold in Ames but my trip went smooth thanks to the help from the staff.
