This is my favorite hotel in Ames. It has the softest beds and is very clean. Staff is always helpful and breakfast is always good. Very convenient to campus. I will miss this hotel when our daughter graduates.

Enjoyed my brief stay here. Front desk was a little slow on check in. Caught them at a busy time and they had one guy on duty. Was it a huge deal? No. Rest of stay was uneventful. Got my 1am wake up call as requested. Have been burned on those before. No problem here. Didn't stick around long enough... More

Do not stay here if you need a firm mattress or if cleanliness is very important to you. Internet service was available and it worked ok but I had to make a call to an outside vendor to figure out how to make it work. In-room coffee service provided but coffee was undrinkable.

Thanks for staying with us! We would have been happy to help you learn how to use the Keurig coffee maker in the room - it can be kind of confusing if you have never used one before! We also keep hot coffee brewed 24 hours a day in our lobby. All of our staff is trained on helping guests... More

I stayed at the Best Western Plus University Park Inn & Suites this past weekend when visiting Iowa State to facilitate a conference. This Best Western Plus was, hands down, the best hotel stay that I had at a Best Western Plus. The Front Desk staff was absolutely courteous and respectful and always greeted the guests with a smile.

I stayed here while attending a conference in town because the location was convenient. Even though the lobby was under construction, the room was clean; the bed was comfortable; and the breakfast was really good. I would recommend to others.

This is a great hotel. The beds are very comfortable. It is extremely clean, and the service is excellent. They are improving it because they are adding an elevator. The breakfast is OK, limited selection

Good new breakfast items. Renovations will be great when completed, but I have not experienced any inconvenience during the changes. I stay at this location between 20 - 30 nights a year, and have been for at least 13 years. I feel like I'm 'home when I'm there.
