Iowa House
Iowa House is Outstanding
I loved the Iowa House. It was comfortable, ideally located and the young people working at the front desk were friendly and helpful. The price was reasonable. I can't say enough good things about the place. I'll definitely stay there next time I'm in Ames.

So clean and comfortable! Great place to stay that is quiet - no pool/no kids! hate to be a curmudgeon but sometimes its just nice to have the quiet. And it has lots of character!

Cute Little Place!
Came down for an ISU campus visit. We will definitely stay here again in the future. Service was great! Breakfast was wonderful! Cute place!

Iowa House
Cute, but needs clearer info on temp controls
Lovely place, but far, far, /far/ too hot in the room, and no way to adjust the temperature. I finally opened all the windows around 4:00a.m. (it was in the 20s outside), and turned on the desk fan, and I still had trouble sleeping. This was a huge problem for me, as I was in town for a job interview and really couldn't afford not to sleep that night. That said, it was lovely in pretty much every other respect. Nice location, the room was a quiet and relaxing place to study the night before, and the staff was friendly. I just really wish the room had come with some more explicit instructions on how to control the temperature so it didn't boil me alive.
