    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.

  • 6.0.Good

    Beds were comfy. Not very clean. Windows were horribly dirty with cobwebs. The way the heater was installed looked tacky with a hole in the wall. Toilet ran in the middle of the night. I had to get up and take the lid off and wiggle the line.

    Beware....no staff wear masks. When I booked on line, it said staff wear PPE. Not true. NO ONE HAD A MASK.

  • 4.0.Fair

    We stayed here at the peak of a pandemic for a family emergency, so maybe that’s why I feel picky about it. Stains on the sheets, hair/dust in the restroom, a bed with springs popping every time you flipped, and thin windows so we could hear conversations from the parking lot all night long.
