AMES, Iowa — Former Cyclones quarterback Seneca Wallace cut the ribbon Friday on his latest business venture: a hotel in Ames.
Wallace is the co-owner of the Courtyard by Marriott in south Ames, a 120-room hotel that hopes to boost the gameday experience.
"Is this ideal to be opening up a hotel? Probably not," Wallace said. "But what do you do? You gotta continue to keep prospering and move forward, and eventually this will pass like everything else."
