Would not hesitate to stay here a million times! The staff were wonderful. Breakfast was hot and delicious! Rooms were clean and beautiful. Was not able to use the pool or hot tub but they looked inviting.

Loved the staff! They answered any questions/requests I had cheerfully and promptly. Room was clean and quiet, hotel going under renovations and we hardly noticed. The breakfast was good. Pool is on the smaller side, but the kids enjoyed it non the less. Easy to get to with great access to highways. Will stay again!

This is our second stay in two years and yet again it was wonderful! The staff is helpful with great smiles and the hotel is very nice even with a little updating going on. Love the pool and breakfast. Close to everything the family wanted to do in Ames.

We booked 12 rooms for two nights. Unfortunately, it was a weekend of sports events in Ames, so the room rate was a bit high. Some of our group were in rooms that required a long walk to the lobby and breakfast area. They are pet friendly, so one couple paid the $20 fee per night so their dog could... More

Was very impressed with the cleanliness and price of this facility as well as how safe I felt there with my four kids alone! Breakfast was good and the staff was very helpful but could probably use a little more variety! My children loved the pool!

I really can't say enough about the staff at this Best Western location. They truly were responsible for making our trip as enjoyable and hassle-free as it was. Even our very limited interaction with the housekeeping staff was noteworthy. The amenities were great, as well!

Highly recommend. Clean with very friendly staff. The eggs were a little bland, but otherwise the breakfast was nice. The pool looked great, but alas I did not have time to use it. My son and I checked out the fitness room and thought it looked very nice for a hotel accommodation.
