Very nice place. Friendly and helpful staff. Was there with a group and we sat in the breakfast area to visit. We ordered food to be brought in and the staff gave us a list of places that had carry out. They were quite accommodating for a large group. Pleasant stay and those that swam enjoyed the pool. Rooms were...

We stayed here twice in 2016, April and October. The location worked well for us, relatively near the Iowa State campus. Our rooms faced the field in back (away from the highway) and were quiet and comfortable. We visit Ames twice a year, and will probably stay here again.

Really pleasant hotel. Having a pool and weight room on site is a definite plus. Helpful staff, in particular Santoshi who checked me in and answered my 1000 questions and Chelsea who set me up with a 1-day extension. One critical comment is that the phones in the room didn't work. There were two in the room, one at a...

Upon arrival, after a long and tiring day, I was met by the nicest and most courteous young woman. Not only did she take the time to make me feel welcome but went out of her way to make certain I was receiving the best accommodation for the price. Thank you Santoshi!

The room had mold. When I complained to the manager they told me to leave. Never staying here again, I will be going to the Hampton across the street that is new. The internet never worked. Then they charged me the night I left because I checked out at 4:00 and not 3:00. Manager and staff is rude.

Problems with check in, mix ups with billing, charged for two rooms that we didn't stay in. Manager wasn't on the property to correct the billing situation when we checked out. I was assured by the front desk staff that she would " take care " of us when she was in the following day. Fast forward 5 months and...

Hi Joanna, I once again do apologize for this issue. There was a miscommunication between myself and Marriott Customer Care. You were refunded yesterday so you should see that credit shortly. Again, I apologize for this issue and thank you for staying with.

The last several stays at this Fairfield have been out of my desire to log Marriott nights (Platinum status). I will be staying across the street at the new Hampton Inn next trip to Ames.

Hello, I am very sorry for your recent disappointing stay in our location. We are looking into our internet issue as we speak and seeing what we can do to better this.

This is a fairly new hotel; everything is new with a bold color scheme. We reserved our room online. This was uneventful and easy process. At our check-in, the hotel clerk was courteous and welcoming. Everything is clean, fresh, and well decorated, since it's so new. We stayed in a "Senior/Handicap" room on the first floor. The bathroom was to...

I traveled to Iowa deciding to stay at the Fairfield Inn in Ames. The room size was bigger than imagined with a separate sitting area to watch tv. The shower was great with awesome water pressure. Breakfast in the morning had a nice variety as the coffee was also very tasteful. I'd definitely stay here the next time I travel...
