It's should be a nice hotel. It's has nice decor. Clean and nice adjustable beds if they are working. We had a toilet that ran all night. Thin walls...can hear every step of guest above. I don't expect much from hotel breakfast, but this $10.95 breakfast was amongst the wort we have had. Sausage was like leather, over cooked made...

The rooms were spotless, beds very supportive and comfortable. Front desk staff was wonderful and supplied us with extra water since ours was frozen solid in the car overnight! Forgot my hat and the housekeeping staff met me at the door with it when I return to claim it, most of the time if I forget usually I don't get...

We have stayed at this Hilton Garden Inn on a number of visits to Ames. The rooms, service and restaurant are typical of good HGI hotels I have stayed in over the years. They are my first choice if one is available.

The staff at this hotel can't be beat! They are all very friendly and attentive. For a typical 3 star hotel you get 5 star service. The chef will prepare you a wonderful meal! Clean and comfortable rooms.

Hotel is nice. Bar in the lobby is inviting. Staff is helpful. We were in town for a birthday party at the West Town Pub. The restaurant/bar is a short walk from the hotel. Also a gas station right out front. Convenient access to Hwy 30, short drive to campus and stadiums and a $5-8 Uber to anywhere in town.

Right on US 30, only 5 minutes from ISU and West Ames. Great, friendly, and considerate staff. The facility is spotless. We prefer to meet our family for breakfast at one of Ames' wonderful cafes and coffee shops, but it is great to have the tasty and nutritious breakfast served here as a fallback. We've had it often and have...

“They might say it caters for 5, but unfortunately they can't put a rollaway bed in a four person room due to it being a fire hazard. They gave us lots of extra pillows and blankets to make up a little bed on the floor.”
