Good breakfast buffet.
Room door didn’t shut properly without extra effort, so anyone could walk in when we were out of the room. Shower unclean with hair on wall, mirror in closet really dirty. Hot tub wasn’t hot, but they fixed it later.
Not good value after talking to others staying in Ames same weekend.
The staff was great. Every interaction met or exceeded expectations.
We arrived a bit late & after checking in & freshing up in our room, we returned to the lobby to find the bar closing @ 10:00. We were able to find small bottles of wine in the concession area but were a bit disappointed. However, the woman @ the front desk comped them for us since we had also had to stop & report that our guest room door was unable on be locked when we tried to leave. She also moved us to another room with a fully functioning door lock but that necessitated us having to collect our suitcases, complete the move which caused us to pass the bar’s closing time. She graciously solved our dilemma which is commendable but it seems the housekeeping staff should have discovered that the room was unable to be safely secured.
Check in is at 3. Rooms not done I waited half a hour for my room. Cleaning people had a two hour meeting excuse. Then cleaning people yelling in halls etc. Check in staff was great they were sorry. Price not good for no free breakfest
Friendly staff and clean, comfortable and well appointed rooms.
Pervasive smell of sewage inside and out of the hotel, particularly around the pool area but also could smell in the room. Air conditioning comes on in aggressive loud intermittent bursts sounding like a jet engine by your head that wake you up/ keep you awake instead of the continual gentle hum found in other hotels. Not particularly comfortable/ cosy communal sitting area by bar
