My husband and I stayed one night to see his son off to college. We had a king ADA room, just assigned randomly . It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. There was no sofa or pull out bed in this room. We were on 1st floor, which is good because I saw stairs but no elevator. Free... More

We were in town for business, and had not made reservations in advance. Some our usual go to's were sold out. The desk clerk was very accommodating when I called for availability. We were very impressed when we arrived with the updated and upscale appearance of this property. This is not your OLD Best Western. Congratulations to Best Western on... More

I was surprised at the hotel. From the outside I wasn't that impressed but when I went inside I was. To be a pet friendly hotel, it was very clean and I couldn't tell that pets were allowed in there. The only thing that I did not like was that there were no weights in the weight room.

One of the nicest Beat Western properties I've stayed at. Last minute walk-in booking. Lovely room overlooking the little lawn on the 2nd floor. Double. Very clean. Extremely friendly staff. Great discounted AARP rate. Would recommend and stay there again if ever in the area.

I was at the Best Western Plus for a 2 day meeting and didn't have time to use the breakfast or internet amenities but the room was clean and everything worked fine. I liked the room bill left under the door in the morning so I didn't have to go to the front desk to check out.

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
