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

OK, Ames is a central Iowa college town - and a very nice one at that; but, it's not like you're going to have a plethora of accommodation choices. That being said, the Best Western is situated about as good as you'll find in proximity to the University and to attend sporting events at either Trice Stadium {football} or the... More

I spent three nights at the Best Western in Ames during a recent business trip. The room appears have been renovated within the past two or three years, and was clean and comfortable. All furnishings are new, including television and bed. The bed, pillows and linens were reasonably comfortable for an economy-level hotel; sleep quality was good. The breakfast was... More

Would not stay here again. Stayed at this hotel because it was the only one with rooms available on short notice. Room looked and smelled old. Front lobby looks nice but the age of the hotel shows once you get past that. Don't appreciate the fact they welcome pets. Will consider staying in Des Moines and drive to Ames next... More

I'd much rather stay here than a hotel on a grand scale where one doesn't find quality in all the features. So quiet I didn't realize there were other guests until breakfast! First hotel where I've felt comfortable in my room to take my socks off, & that's saying a lot!

Nice enough hotel and very professional staff. Rates can be a little high, but it is a college town. Rooms are pretty good- lighting is a bit dim and disappointing to see traditional incandescent bulbs in nearly every fixture even though the hotel professes to be be "green". Bedding was just average with thin/rough sheets, and the towels/washclothes were just... More

Aside from the Memorial Union, you won't find a more convenient spot for a visit to Iowa State University. It is right at the junction of route 30 and University just down the road from Jack Trice Stadium. There is a hot breakfast, which has waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage or ham, pepperidge farm breads, bagles, muffins, yogurt with berries and... More

Nice friendly staff, and clean comfortable rooms. Have stayed here a few different times now and always relaxing and quiet. Breakfast seems to be lacking. Seems like no thought was put into what to offer guests. I have seen better at lesser known hotels. This isnt what I would expect from a "plus" hotel. Can get a better breakfast at... More

Very nice rooms, comfortable beds, and clean. Good breakfast variety. Handy for meetings in Grand Island. I appreciate the location and amenities. Bedding looked a little worn. Room was quiet even with the heavy thunderstorm that evening.
