Iowa House, Ames
Unquiet slumbers
College kids snuck in on the third floor on a Saturday night. They proceeded to have a party to end all parties way past midnight. Love st several hours of sleep. If you're looking for peace and quiet, go elsewhere. Walls are paper thin, many banging doors all night long ng both nights i stayed there.

Quick stay - beautiful place.
Really nice stay ... we picked the room with a loft for our family and it worked great. Close to campus action. The breakfast was excellent!

One-of-a-kind experience!
We stayed 2 nights in the loft room. Our entire experience at the inn was spectacular. The only thing that would have made it better was if other guests had read the reviews prior to staying. As mentioned in other reviews, this is a historic inn and NOT a hotel. If you are looking for a hotel experience, reserve a room at any of the chain hotels in the area and/or don't complain when you realize the inn is not a hotel. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind experience within walking distance of Campustown and the ISU campus, then this is the place for you. We will certainly be repeat customers.
