The Best Western Plus University Park Inn & Suites covers all the basic needs of a hotel, and does so with quiet assurance. The bed was very comfortable; the sheets were nice, and the towels in the bathroom were great. The hot breakfast the next morning was the same standard fare that so many hotels offer now -- and I...

The facilities, location, personnel as well as the cold and warm breakfast (included) were second to none. The cleanliness was 100%. I decided to become a BW rewards member after this stay. We were so please we extended our stay instead of leaving to Des Moines the last night

Very clean and lots of staff to help you with whatever you need. Indoor pool is sparkling clean as is the excercize room. Breakfast was nice especially since it was free. I will stay here anytime I am in athe area. Other hotels such as the Hilton properties are very expensive in this area and offer no more than the... More

I came to this hotel because of the positive reviews. My hotel room was very musty smelling. I was planning on staying three days but I cut my stay short because of the room. The breakfast was a standard to below average free breakfast. I had to return Thursday night to Ames and picked a different hotel to stay in.... More

Liked this hotel very much and would stay there again. The staff went the extra mile to be friendly and helpful. The breakfast was absolutely excellent, a hot meal with eggs, sausage, waffles and ham. There was cinnamon and powered sugar in addition to the usual butter/margarine and syrup. My favorite was the oatmeal bar, which had blueberries, dried fruit,... More

Although when I booked the suite over the phone and was told the bedroom had an actual door, it was merely an alcove, no door. The gentleman at the front desk found another room, and not only did it have the door, but was a bigger suite, with a whirlpool bath. Obviously would have been more costly if booked originally....

It is a clean hotel with ideal location. They were very accommodating for our pet which we appreciate. They even provided bags to pick up outside after our dog. I would recommend staying here especially if you are visiting Iowa State.

This trip was our third stay at this hotel. We were in town for new student orientation at ISU. The lobby has recently been renovated and is quite nice. It looks like they will also be replacing the hallway carpeting soon to give it a more "up to date" appeal. The rooms were nice and the beds comfortable. The only... More

I always enjoy my stay at this cute hotel. They have a clean facility with a friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Whenever I come to Ames for business this is where I stay. Great centralized location in the city.

Everyone is very friendly and all the rooms are undergoing a remodeling project. The lobby was recently remodeled. The breakfast has more choices than many motels. A very good choice for a solo traveler as well as others.
