This place was very clean. Beds were awesome. People were very polite and helpful. I had to stay for 5 days to attend classes and it is on my list of places I would stay again in a heart beat. No bar or grill but had a convenience store right next door and free hot breakfast

My wife and I had a great stay at this hotel. Everything was clean and well taken care of. The staff was very helpful and very polite. Hotel was very close to the place of our meeting at Iowa state. The food was excellant. The pool area and exercise area was great.

Headed to Wisconsin for business and stopped over in Ames Iowa. Been on the road for several hours and needed to stop for the night. Made reservations at the Best Western University Inn and spoke with the clerk and explained that I'd be there in a couple of hours. It was easy to get to the hotel and I found... More

Hotel staff were very courteous and went out of their way to make sure our stay was nice. The breakfast had a lot of hot and cold options that our whole family could enjoy. I would highly recommend staying at the hotel. The price was great as well.

We spent 3 nights at the Best Western and would go back again. Very kind staff. Wiling to help in every way. The morning breakfast was very good. I could have something different each day. Best then most others I have been at. Even have meat. The hot tub was nice for the end of the day.

This is the 2nd year we stayed here with our daughter's basketball team - can't say enough about the excellent staff and the hotel's accommodations. Also, the location is great -- close to eveything in Ames. Beds were comfortable, nice variety of breakfast options, fridges in all the rooms. Will stay again next summer, no question!

We booked a group of rooms here for a family reunion over the July 4th weekend. The manager made sure our rooms were located together which was very appreciated. The hotel breakfast was nicer than most with a large eating space great for visiting. The front porch had nice seating for gathering at night. The pool and large grassy area... More

A simple improvement would be safety bars in the bathroom beside the toilet and tub for people that need them. I did not request a handicapped accessible room or a wide doorway. My elderly mother can walk she just needed something to hang onto to pull herself up. Since there were no safety bars in the bathroom I had to... More

We were very pleased with this hotel. Our whole experience was very good! Rooms were clean. Nice outside area to sit and visit with our group. They were very accommodating. Breakfast was awesome! It was eggs, sausage and some homemade pastries! Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. I would go back again! Close to the college!

There's lots you will notice at this Best Western. As usual, the room was spotless. The staff are always very friendly and professional. The recently remodeled decor is amazing. The breakfast area is great and the food very pleasing. That's why you can't go wrong!
