The Aquatic Park is nearby, walk to the hospital and McFarland Clinic in five minutes. The city bus system is 1 1/2 blocks from the Inn. In the fall, ISU football is popular. Concerts are on campus, as well as the beautiful Reiman Gardens. Ames is located in the center of Iowa, near Des Moines, most destinations are less than a few hours drive away, including the Des Moines International Airport.
