This motel is located just a couple of miles from the Iowa State University campus. This was important to me because I was in Ames, Iowa, to attend a family reunion held at the Iowa State Alumni Center. I appreciated being assigned to a ground-level room. The motel itself is beautiful and has a convenient convenience store across the parking... More

We stayed in a double queen room in June 2014. The room was good-sized and had a nice little sitting area. The beds were comfortable and the TV was a nice HD model. The breakfast buffet had several hot items and had a pretty good selection. The hotel was easy to get to, but far enough away from Hwy 30... More

Loved the location-quiet, but had great freeway access. Loved the facilty-clean, clean, clean. Did I mention the motel was really clean? Loved the food, but so did every one else... It was great quality, so it was a bit too crowded in the serving area. Awesome staff- very professional and polite. Didn't care much for the TV remote- HBO didn't... More

We stayed here one night, after a late arrival to Des Moines airport. This motel was perfect for what we needed: easy to get to, clean, comfortable bed, and a nice breakfast bar in the am. I recommend Best Western Plus in Ames to anyone who needs a quick stopover, or needs a place to stay near the University. It... More

We have tried several hotels in Ames and to our surprise, we actually found the Best Western a cut above the rest. Although all the hotel layouts and rooms are basically the same, we found Best Western good enough to warrant a review. First of all they created a sitting area when first entering with a couch, TV, refrig. coffee... More

The property was clean and well kept, welcoming, courteous and helpful staff. Very easy access to the university, shopping and restaurants. Because my son is attending ISU I will definitely stay again. Go Cyclones!!!

Loved this place to stay! Very clean, very attentive staff, very accommodating about needs and changes to reservation. Pool and hot tub were nice and warm. Breakfast had good choices. The Keurig machine in the room was the best!

We had our family reunion at the Best Western University Park Inn & Suites in Ames, IA and had a great time. We used the conference room to gather in. The staff was amazing and we so appreciate their hospitality. We've been going there for our family reunion for over 10 years.
