We have tried several hotels in Ames and to our surprise, we actually found the Best Western a cut above the rest. Although all the hotel layouts and rooms are basically the same, we found Best Western good enough to warrant a review. First of all they created a sitting area when first entering with a couch, TV, refrig. coffee maker, kitchenette. The bathroom is in the middle and the bedroom on the other side with its own TV. It allowed us separate spaces for reading, TV and sleeping. The bed was very comfortable, the room very quiet and the duvet not too warm (One of my pet peeves in all these hotels...bed looks great but duvet is too hot and no blankets usually available as a alternative.)
Breakfast was included but we left early and did not partake. We did take coffee and it was actually good. My one recommendation would be to offer the room with or without breakfast. I would prefer to have a price option like that and it would separate this hotel from the others.
We would definitely stay here again.
