This was our second stay at AmericInn in Ames. We have stayed at other places while visiting our son at ISU but AmericInn has equaled or exceeded other hotels and it is less money. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and the hotel has stayed up to date in decor and furnishing. Will stay here again.

Great hotel that is finishing up on some renovations. Room was extremely quite allowing for a great night's sleep. Breakfast area was well stocked and very clean. I will definitely stay there again when I am back in Ames.

This hotel does not meet the quality standards of other Americinn hotels. The front desk was not very friendly or efficient and there were issues with my room. The hotel advertises that it is completely renovated, but it is not. In fact, the renovation appears to be in progress. There are several other hotel properties on the same street where...

This was our third stay in Ames Iowa as this location splits our long trip to Maple Lake, MN.

The price was much lower than other hotels in the area. Very clean and nice room but it had an odor of cleaning products. You would get used to it but if you left the room you would notice the smell again. Breakfast was average. I would probably stay there again

When we pulled up to this motel, we were concerned about staying there.. The outside is faded and it looks like they had filled holes, etc. with spackling compound.
