Everything was pleasant. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast had many options for cereal, hot items like waffles, scrambled eggs, sausages and oatmeal. Juice, coffee and milk for beverages. Pleasant atmosphere for dining as well.

We booked a block of rooms for a wedding at the nearby CPMI Events Center and the person in charge of group events was excellent throughout the whole process as was the front desk staff. The breakfast was very good and the breakfast area was very conducive to visiting with other members of our group. I would highly recommend this... More

The hotel was very nice and the staff was pleasant and nice. Everyone made my wife and I feel welcome and made us feel like we were a guest in their home. This is what travel is all about. The fitness area was clean. The breakfast was great. Hot and great coffee.

Enjoyed our stay at this hotel; it's very conveniently located close to ISU. Our room, the pool and the general areas were clean and the continental breakfast was very good. Will definitely consider this hotel again in the future.

We went for an overnighter to visit our daughter at college. We wanted to take our puppy and this hotel was great in accommodating pets. Great place to stay with your pet. The pool and hot tub and workout rooms were bonuses for us. We highly recommend this hotel.

The service at the Best Western on University in Ames is remarkable. So friendly and always courteous. Love their breakfast, their clean rooms and impeccable staff. Very Professional check-in and check-out.

spacious rooms-excellent location-always same boring breakfast with no variety-some nights quiets other nights loud depending who is running up and down halls. Descent pool. Descent TV without TV guide. Staff needs to smile more instead of always having straight face and always looking away from customer.

Was visiting Ames to visit the University. Selected hotel from location and reviews. It seems to have had a lovely renovation. The entrance and common area was inviting. It felt very homey. The room was nicely decorated and very clean. The workout room was better than expected with various equipment over and above a treadmill. This room was kept clean... More

Bathroom ceiling and walls had mold on them. Bed was very uncomfortable. Staff was kind and helpful. The breakfast was very good. Outside of hotel décor was pretty. Overall room was clean and décor was modern.

Stayed one night for kids activities close by. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and good sized. The bathroom was old and small however clean. The breakfast was good and I thought the rate was very good. Would stay here again.
