    Iowa House, Ames

    Went to visit my son at college and this was within walking distance to his apartment and everything we wanted to do. By far the best hotel in Ames that we have stayed at. Loved the house and the employees that I came in contact with.

    Perfection in every way

    This small inn is a perfect getaway for any couple. Our room was a smaller one, but didn't lack in comfort. The pillows, mattress and bedding were all so very wonderful, like sleeping on a cloud. We had a bathroom with a jetted tub ( did not use). The towels were thick and absorbent. We had everything we needed. There are snacks available 24/7. The living area was decorated for fall and very welcoming. Breakfast was included. Our breakfast burritos were very good. There was cereal, yogurt, fruit and other items available. The coffee was wonderful. The staff kind and helpful.

    I lived in Ames for four years and did not know that Iowa House existed! Returning to Ames as a professional, I am so glad that I stumbled upon it before my recent trip. As soon as I entered the keypad locked front door, it smelled of fall and the main common area was so cutely decorated for fall! My room (202) was SO comfortable and clean. I had a clean shower and bathroom, there was a vanity area with sink and large mirror, and my bed was very comfortable! I will be staying here every time I return to Ames!

    Comfortable and convenient for Iowa State

    Convenient for our overnight stay. Breakfast was hot and served as we entered dining room. No recycling options for plastics, etc. Linens a bit limited, but adequate.
