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.

Clean and comfortable hotel for trip to Iowa State University campus. The staff were helpful and the room was large, very clean and very comfortable. The hotel is not within walking distance of anything useful, so you definitely need a car. The main drawback of the hotel is that there is no restaurant so a simple breakfast is all that... More

While very pricey for an ISU football weekend, you can't beat the location of this property. No worries about game day parking, as it's a nice walk to Jack Trice Stadium. The public spaces are very welcoming, from the front porch with chairs to the large breakfast dining area. The breakfast itself had a nice surprise of a yogurt/fruit/granola bar... More

We have stayed here several times. It is handy to ISU and Jack Trice Stadium. Always clean. Has breakfast with some hot meal options. Rooms have a separate seating area, which is always nice. Two TVs, Keurig coffee maker, and small fridge. Swimming pool and hot tub.

Recently renovated lobby was done well. Rooms are comfortable and the beds were great. Stayed one night for a campus visit with family. Breakfast was OK. Wished they had more choices but it was adequate. Would stay here again. One of the best in Ames, Iowa

Nice hotel, well located not far from Iowa State, next to a gas station, easy to find, friendly staff and accommodating, room was fine, breakfast was good, but room rate was very high. Very busy weekend in Ames, all other hotels were full.

We would stay at this Best Western if in the area. Bed was excellent and our rest is most important to us on a trip. Air conditioner was just right and room was clean and comfortable. Hotel breakfast was fine as it had a variety of items to choose from.

The staff at this hotel were helpful and courteous. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and decent quality for the price range. Breakfast was actually offered at a reasonable time, not at the dreary crack of dawn.
