    Overall experience was good. Ice machines were down so that led to a scavenger hunt for ice, but everything else was good. Check in/out was quick/friendly and the bed/pillows were great. Free breakfast would have been nice.

    We stayed for two nights. The room had dirty carpeting, as did the hallways and elevator. I paid $150 per night for the room and would expect more from Hilton. Next time we are in Ames I will not be staying at Hilton.
