Stayed many times at this location. It is now even better. Extensively remodeled with new equipment in the fitness center, Great new, healthy breakfast items. As always, clean and comfortable rooms. The staff always makes me feel like I'm coming home.

We spent an over night here when we had our carpets cleaned. We decided we deserved a little luxury and this was it. The hotel has recently been redecorated and we thought it tasteful and inviting. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool and sauna was relaxing. The room was clean and comfortable. Besides it's very close to the... More

Couldn't have asked for a better stay. A comfortable bed, and a great (and quiet) location, plus a clean room. Also had a great breakfast. Couldn't ask for a better experience, and will definitely recommend this hotel to others!

The staff at this hotel were very friendly and helpful. I am not giving it a higher rating because of the room and the coffee. I found the coffee undrinkable. The heating/ventilation system was very noisy and the air was very very dry. (Maybe this should be expected when the temperature outside is below freezing, but...) I did not find... More

Our daughter and her husband recently got married in Ames, Iowa. We had over 75 out of town guest stay at the Best Western. They all enjoyed their stay. The staff was very helpful and understanding with our many last minute request and changes to our reservations. Great place to host a fun party.

A quality hotel with good amenities. Suitable for family or business. I found the staff friendly and the rooms clean. The fitness centre was up to date and the pool area well maintained. I really enjoyed the large lobby, with fireplace, large table for family meals etc.

I always stay here when I am in Ames, Iowa. The hotel is quiet, clean, well managed and several areas have been remodeled. It has all the perks and I actually look forward to getting here. I have been staying here once a year for the past 6 years.

Nice clean and comfortable room with good work desk in the room. Beds are comfortable. Hall noise is a bit intense. The worst part is the lack of available plugs. Forget charging your telephone while working on your laptop. Vanity space is very limited. Breakfast is above average with a nice yogurt/oatmeal bar. Even with discounts and a gold elite... More

Spent a weekend here visiting ISU. Located close to campus in a quite section of Ames. No restaurants within walking difference but close drive away. Small workout area and pool with whirlpool. Remodeling nicely done. Rooms are simple but clean. Microwave, fridge and keurig in room. If you are looking for deluxe look else where. Good value and will probably... More

We checked in late and were met by 2 very friendly customer service representatives. One (red hair... could not read his name on his name tag) was extremely friendly and helpful. We did not expect much as the hotel was not rated as a 3 STAR hotel. The rooms were exceptionally clean and updated. The breakfast was well stocked and... More
