The room was comfy, the staff was accommodating, the breakfast superb and a happy hour unexpected. Easy on and off the highway. Only a short drive took us to restaurants and shopping. Winter conditions outside were awful but we were safe, warm and happy travelers indoors at this Country Inn.

I stay here for business often. They have recently remodeled the lobby and breakfast area. Hopefully the rooms are next, but they are still in decent shape and always very clean.I would recommend it for a reasonable stay in the Ames, IA area. Friendly staff and good breakfast.

We stayed here while visiting our son at Iowa State. We have stayed here at least 4 other times because it has been reasonably priced and we really like the extra large room they have available. The lobby is nice and the cocktail hour is a very nice touch (however, hours could be expanded. My complaint is they need to...
