This is a great hotel to stay at. Extremely close to Iowa State University and easy freeway on / off. The staff at the hotel are extremely pleasant and friendly.

Nice rooms, and clean. Friendly staff and check in. Good variety of food choices for breakfast. We drove from Des Moines, IA. It was an easy driving distance back to southern Minnesota. The day we left it was very full in the dining room area. Some people had to take their breakfast up to their rooms or they ate in... More

Once again, another satsifying stay at Best Western Ames IA. The hotel is locate a short hop away from iowa state university and after a long day of moving a student in to their dorm, BW provides a nice, quiet, relaxing atmosphere to recharge in the pool, order in, or sit outside in their patios to reflect on the day.

This was a reasonable, clean, included breakfast kind of place to stay while moving in daughter to Iowa State University. Very basic hotel. Lots of construction on the main highway. Close proximity to campus.

The Best Western is Ames Iowa was very welcoming with quiet spotless rooms equipped with a refrigerator and microwave. We were especially pleased that our well behaved dog was welcome. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast each morning. We will be back the next time we return to Ames.

Loved this quaint hotel. Great location near Iowa State University. Nice veranda on the side of the hotel to relax, plan your day or even a quick nap. :-) Very clean, comfortable. We will stay here again for our next trip to ISU.
