Room was clean to the eye; however, it smelled of stale smoke. The shower/bathroom was sketchy.

Well at first it was a nightmare because they didn't have a record of me coming! I had your confirmation thank goodness to prove that I had a reservation. I was able to get a room and everything turned out ok.

Red Roof Inn Ames, Ames
The hotel room service was terrible. On Saturday morning at 8:30am, one of the maids tried to enter our room after I answered the door. We did not request any service. We talked to the front desk and they offered an apology. They seemed to not take the situation very seriously, the hotel needs to train their staff about room privacy. The breakfast was not good and there was no service to restock food. I would not recommend this hotel.
