    The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only complaint I have is that there was no channel guide for the tv in the room.

  • 6.0.Good

    The price was right, but I’m very concerned about the cleanliness. There was about 15 long black hairs on the shower wall, above the faucet. The shower only trickled water out of four or five holes. There were weird, white stains on the bed skirt, towards the night stand. In a time where Covid is such a big concern for people, why are the rooms not very clean?

    Traveling with my son and a friend and picked this as a stay overnight. we did that three times over the week and this one was by far the best hotel we stayed at. It was clean secure and somewhat updated. Cannot beat the price or ease of accessibility

    It was a good stay besides the barking dog next door. Had to deal with the barking late at night and early mornings. Otherwise it was a very relaxing weekend

    We keep coming back!

    Dan the manager, has been wonderful. We have stayed at this Red Roof Inn a total of 3 times. We travel for work and with our dog. There is a big grassy area in the back, perfect for our pet. This Red Roof is our go to place to stay everytime we come into Ames.
