Asked a co-worker for their recommendation for a one night business trip stay. They recommended Best Western. Very grateful I took them up on their recommendation! My stay was great!

The front lobby is very nice but the suite I stayed in was just okay. It was a bit cramped for a suite (without a private division of the bedroom space). The water pipes were very loud when the room above us ran water. Avoid the hot eggs served at breakfast. Rather, I recommend the yogurt and oatmeal bar options.

I booked a room at this hotel when my husband and I were in town to visit my daughter at Iowa State. I chose Best Western because it was rated the #1 hotel in Ames. The lobby is very nice.

My 20 y/o son and I traveled to Ames as he is going to transfer to Iowa State. The hotel is very nice. Beautiful lobby. Nice rooms, comfy bed & pillows - slept well. I thought the front desk guy could have been friendlier (acted like he couldn't care less that we were there), but other than that, it was... More

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.
