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.

This is the best hotel we have experienced in 40+ years of marriage. The facilities are first rate, the staff couldn't be nicer or more professional and the breakfast is fantastic, rivaling those we have seen in Europe.

Nice hotel, pleasant stay but the breakfast menu is not friendly for the gluten free. Location is great for the purpose of my visit. Hotel staff was pleasant and friendly. Rooms were just redone, bathtub (shower) floor creaked and new paint job was sloppy.

Great place to stay in Ames. Close to meetings and close to eating establishments. It is on a main access so easy to get to I-35 when you leave. Rooms are clean. The new elevator is a great addition to second floor rooms. Always enjoy the friendly atmosphere of the staff.

Clean, comfortable room with helpful service. Good breakfast overall. Cooks were always present to help you and kept things clean. Did not use the pool or hot tub, but saw a number of families having fun there.

Very clean hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful at check-in. The breakfast buffet was very good. Love the lobby area with plenty of seating area. I would highly recommend staying here again.

The lobby and breakfast were outstanding. We could hear the next door neighbors and their door shutting. The water from the shower upstairs woke us up in the morning. Good location near ISU. Staff was nice. Keurig in rooms was great. Don't like that the sink/light is not blocked to the beds (difficult to get ready and not wake others).

As a regular returning guest I consistently find this hotel to be clean, quiet, comfortable and welcoming. The breakfast are plentiful and the in room internet is good too. It's conveniently located for my business in the area.

We've stayed in Best Western motels before that were pretty ho-hum, so it was a happy surprise to find such a lovely Best Western in Ames, Iowa! The lobby is welcoming and comfortable and doubles as the eating area for the ample, tasty breakfast. The sleeping room is very adequate and attractive. A good choice close to the University.
