Reviewed 10 April 2016 via mobile

I stayed here with my school band (we are from Illinois) and to be quite honest, I wasn't expecting much. Because of that, I was blown away by the quality of the hotel. I was expecting a cheap motel with halfway-decent rooms; instead we got a beautiful hotel with large rooms and cozy beds. I would absolutely stay again! I...

We enjoyed our stay in Ames. The receptionist was a joy to check in with. She was very nice and extremely helpful. The lady at breakfast was very enjoyable also. We would stay there again. I'm sure the new Hampton will be ready by the time we pass through Ames again. Hampton inns are my favorite places to stay.

Older hotel, however, very clean. We didn't go into the pool because we were exhausted, but we checked it out and the water was warm and the area looked extremely clean. If we were to visit this area again, we would stay here again. They are building a newer one a couple blocks away, don't know when that's opening.

Clean and quiet. Lobby was cold since the door opened frequently. We often had to wait for front desk staff. Rooms were nice, however they didn't seem to have those Hampton Inn famous beds. Loved that they put us in adjoining rooms! No hot tub which was a bummer for my teens. A new HI is under construction nearby.

My wife and I stayed at the Hampton in Ames Iowa last week the 24th of March 2016. Had a great stay. We can't thank the staff enough. They were the friendliest and most helpful staff we've encountered in awhile. So thank you Lisa, Tracy, Brennan and Brandon. For the excellent service, laughter, and smiles. Marianna and Donnie

Overall a very good visit. Remodeled facility and they are building a new Hampton Inn & Suites in this area. Clean, friendly staff, nice breakfast, and quiet. Questions where answered, directions good. Ames, IA is a very nice area to visit.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast offerings were great. We would stay here again if we're in the area. The only thing we would have like was a hot tub. The ear plugs were a nice touch.
