    « Wonderful surprise! »

    We booked through Hotwire and were prepared for an okay experience for one night. We were surprised with the cleanliness and how comfortable the room was. The lobby and breakfast area was very clean and a pleasant place to sit.

    « Clean, convenient, nice remodel »

    We (family of 4 with 2 teens) stayed for 1 night during a college visit to ISU. We found the lobby area charming, the room very clean and well maintained and the location perfect for our stay. The young man who checked us in was very personable and professional (a college student at ISU). Breakfast was nice, good options for all. We will stay again!

    « Always worth the stay »

    We stay at this hotel on our way to Minnesota on every trip through Iowa. It's a very clean Joel with modern rooms and clean bathrooms. It's pet friendly and the hotel staff is always nice. The breakfast buffet is a typical buffet, but serves its purpose. Be careful booking in the fall during football season, as the hotel might fill up. Iowa State is horrible so typically it's not full, but if they get better you might run into problems. I know........I'm laughing hard at that thought also, but it could happen

    « Pleasurable experience »

    The hotel was clean, comfortable and offered a nice breakfast variety and the staff were accommodating and fun! Staff were able to give advice on restaurants and locations which was extremely helpful.

    « My new go to hotel in Ames »

    Stayed here for a football weekend. Had a "suite" King bed with a separate sitting area. 2 TVs, fridge, etc. Very nice. Had a farm/barn theme, done well. Nice porch in the front to hang out on in nice weather. Breakfast was decent. Waffles, eggs, ham, sausage, oatmeal, etc. Common area great to visit in with others. Played cards there with kids one night. Had a nice time. Still renovating hallways. They allow pets, but can look up when a room last had a pet. Good location. C-Store next door is nice has large selection of beer, fresh baked goods and great coffee. Will stay again.

    « Nice but needs some work »

    Clean room. Like the channel sink faucets - nice touch. Breakfast is nothing to write home about, but typical. Very friendly staff and helpful with combining point free room with CC pay. Hallway is older- needs new baseboards but clean. Overall nice stay.

    « My go-to hotel in Ames »

    I have stayed here on multiple occasions. The rooms are clean & comfortable. The recent redecorating looks good. Front desk and housekeeping staff are friendly and responsive. Gas station next door is handy. Breakfast is plentiful with variety. My only gripe, and it is a very minor one, is that the in-room coffee is via a Keurig machine, so tastes, well ... like Keurig coffee (awful). The easy work-around is to get a cup of coffee from the lobby.

    « Worse stay ever I would give this facility a half 2.5 »

    Don't waste your money stay somewhere else. When I booked this trip on I ordered a handicap king suite what I got was a regular king suite with no accommodations for me in the bathroom handicap parking have been taken by somebody without a handicap decal one spot on the parking lot that was all. The first room they gave me was a king suite I couldn't even get in the door for the odor. The second room was was suitable except it had no bathroom accessories for handicap I use a wheelchair. So that meant no shower for me after 15 hours of driving. I ended up with a queen size reg. room with no price change. When you spend $184.00 per night. I expect better service and quality.

    « Excellent »

    We had an excellent experience! Nice Hotel that has been recently updated. Nice staff and very helpful. Easy access to Interstate with many dinning options in the area. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

    « Best Motel in Ames »

    Everything about this Motel is quality and beauty. I tried very hard to find something that could have been better, but could not find a thing. I look forward to returning during my next visit to Iowa.

    « Great hotel »

    Excellent, friendly staff, comfortable, breakfast was perfect for a get you up and running breakfast. wish the eggs werent instant eggs and that sausage or ham werent the only two choices,,,throw some bacon in there and ill rate amazing. still though great prices for an excellent hotel.

    « Updated Hotel, Convenient Location »

    I was pleasantly surprised by the trendy decor inside this hotel. I actually took a couple of pictures for my own decorating inspiration. The room had been recently updated and was very comfortable. The upstairs hallway was under renovation and was the only sign of a previously dated hotel. Located near ISU and just off of Hwy 30, the location was perfect.

    « Excellent »

    Not only was the place exceptionally clean but even though it is near a major highway, my room was nice and quiet. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with any questions I may have had. They were this way with everyone that came through the doors. I really wish I had tried the breakfast but needed to be over at the university and ran out of time. Usually I do not sleep very well in a hotel but I did that night.

    « Very compassionate and caring staff »

    The purpose of my trip doesn't fit into the boxes I'm supposed to check below. I was in Ames to take my very sick dog to the Iowa State veterinary hospital, and this is the closest hotel to that hospital that not only permits pets, but offers a discount. I found the kindness and compassion of the staff very touching at a time of stress and concern for my beautiful girl.

    « Great Ames, IA Hotel Option »

    I stay at this hotel every time I visit Ames for business - 4 stays in the last two months. It is very easy to get to and convenient to highway, Iowa State, and multiple eating options. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I've made use of both the business center and the fitness center. The rooms are very nice and perfect for any needed computer work. The only downside for me is the beds are too soft. My hips and legs tend to ache - must be aggravating some pressure points. I prefer a more firm mattress.

    « Terrific Staff! »

    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.

    « Clean room, Friendly Staff »

    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!

    « Great Stay »

    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.

    « Beautiful Property »

    Well situated, good location, great comfortable rooms, and just well maintained in general. FRIENDLY STAFF!! Loved this stay. Breakfast was very good, definitely above the normal for a continental breakfast.

    « Pleasant, Comfortable Stay »

    Clean, comfortable hotel with decent pool and hot tub. Has a handy microwave and small refrig in room, with Keurig coffee maker for fresh coffee/decaf.. Also has an especially nice sink and mirror located outside the shower/toilet area to help get us ready for the day, including soft towels. The breakfast bar had a good variety of tasty foods including scrambled eggs and waffles which we like.

    « Family and friends two night stay was good »

    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 stay with them. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Our group enjoyed spending time together in the lobby with our beer and wine. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We were on the highest floor(2nd), and could use either stairs or elevator. Breakfast was adequate, but not outstanding. Coffee was served from urns, and regular coffee did not seem very hot by 7:30 in the morning. Their location is convenient to Iowa State University campus and downtown. There are numerous paths for running, walking, and biking nearby. Since we were paying for our entire group's stay, it was disconcerting for each room to be given a receipt. At checkout, I requested a total bill, but they were only set up to make copies of the bills for each room. We did not receive an actual bill for the total we were charged. For the convenience of location, we would consider staying here again.

    « Visiting for youth basketball tournament »

    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!

    « USATF Regional track meet(July 2015) »

    Quiet area on the outskirts of campus. Very friendly and helpful staff. The grounds were very clean, nice pool area, convenience store right across the way . NICE location, Spacious rooms, relaxing environment. A great place to get away and be in peace.

    « Outstanding staff and experience! »

    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!

    « Nice Place »

    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.

    « Clean, comfortable, quiet, and a free breakfast, what more could you want? »

    The hotel was under renovation so the hallway was a little shabby but that's to be expected during renovation. The first floor had already been finished so we could see what was going to be upstairs, and it looked very nice. The elevator is small but it's just about the size you need for a family with their luggage. The lobby and rooms are decorated nicely. The room was very clean and the beds were comfy. The pillows were comfy too. I like a pillow that gives me enough support without raising my head so high that my neck is at an uncomfortable angle. These did that. We had a very nice sized refrigerator with freezer compartment and a microwave in the room. We also had plenty of both cold and hot cups. Many hotels don't leave enough in the room for the number of occupants. The staff is very friendly and they go out of their way to be helpful. We found that to be the case with several of the front desk staff. breakfast was pretty much standard hotel fare; scrambled "eggs", sausage, breads, scones, waffles and oatmeal. They had what looked like homemade oatmeal and it looked very good, along with several toppings for it. They also had cups of vanilla yogurt with fruit and nut toppings as well. There was a waffle machine. The waffles weren't very good but I'm sure kids would like them just fine. There was also what looked like home baked scones, as well as small bagels. There was two choices of fruit juice, milk and coffee. There was a nice variety. A little fresh fruit would have been nice. I saw a long bowl of green apples and started to grab one to eat it but realized in time that it was fake. We had a little problem with the plumbing. It took two flushes every time we used it, but it never stopped up or overflowed. I let the front desk know about the problem so they can address it so the next person in the room doesn't have a worse problem. I'd stay there again. The pool wasn't too bad. It looked like it could benefit from a good scrubbing, but that's the way with so many hotel pools. It wasn't too bad for swimming and the chlorine smell wasn't real strong, (strong chlorine smell indicates the pool is not clean) so I'm sure it was fine. The hotel is a straight shot from, and close to, Iowa State University, which was convenient for us as we were there for orientation.

    « Nice comfortable stay.... »

    Easy access from highway 30. Our king room was just recently remodeled and was very clean and spacious. The bed was nice and comfortable. The full breakfast was excellent. The whole stay was great and if we are in this area again we will definitely return.

    « Our Stay at the Best Western in Ames, Iowa »

    We traveled as a family to our daughters bridal shower in Ames, IA. We needed to have an early check in and the clerk was awesome in being able to accommodate us. She called my cell phone when the room was ready. The room was perfect. The breakfast was delicious. We would definitely stay again

    « Good value, good location »

    Close to Iowa State University, but you will need a car to get around the university and town. Be sure to go to the downtown Ames area. We had lovely dinners at Aunt Maude's and a true Latin experience at Botenero de Latino.

    « ISU Orientation »

    Excellent family hotel while staying at Iowa State University. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Very close to campus. Great breakfast, lobby, workout room and pool. We will definitely return for fall visits!

    « Great Stay »

    We had a recently remodeled room so all was in perfect condition, very clean, and comfortable. The breakfast selection was excellent and the food was of good quality. The hotel lobby was pleasant and we enjoyed use of the pool and hot tub.

    « Visit to Ames, Iowa »

    Very nice and clean rooms LOTS of Plug in - very handle traveling with teenagers... Hotel was undergoing some updates and renovations a little mess on the second floor should be done very soon the main floor was done putting walk paper up when I we left.... Gas Station right on the same location,

    « ISU Orientation Visit »

    Stayed 2 nights while my ISU student did orientation. Very close to campus. Rooms were small, but very clean. Air conditioner did not work well. We always were short on towels and had to go to the desk to request them. The 2nd morning there was no hot water at all. Not sure what was going on, but a cold shower was not fun. Also the toilet had a trickle noise that was annoying. Overall ok visit. I'm all about the cleanliness and this room was clean. I felt for almost $200 a night things should have been so much better. I probably wouldn't stay here again.

    « Iowa State University Visit »

    We spent one night at this hotel in order to visit Iowa State University. The location was great. Only a 5-10 minute drive to Memorial Union. The staff was very helpful. There is a gas station station next-door which was perfect for filling up the car before we left.

    « Super Comfy »

    I went to Ames for Odyssey of the mind World finals as a judge. I normally stay in the Gateway just outside the University entrance but not this time. my friend and I were sent over to the Best Western directly across the street. We were comfortably surprised with our room. Beds were very comfy to the point we hesitated to even sit on our beds for fear of falling asleep. The lobby is a very nicely decorated country theme and the desk personnel were helpful and knowledgeable. Be prepared for now they are updating the hotel with new paint, wall paper and carpeting. The rooms seem to have all been recently updated and very stylish. The proximity of the hotel to the University is exceptional if a bit ambitious you could easily walk to campus for a game. According to my room mate the hotel gym was nicely equipped and saved him from driving to Des Moines to go to his normal gym. All in all Comfy friendly and convenient.

    « Everyone was friendly. »

    There was some remodeling but did not affect us in any way. We did not use the pool but it looked nice. The front desk staff was helpful and pleasant. Décor was beautiful. Rooms were clean. Breakfast included ham and eggs, yogurt bar and fruit.

    « Stay in Ames »

    If you are looking for a place to stay in or around Ames and you care about cleanliness and above and beyond service, this is where you want to stay! I've been staying here at least 20 years as needed and wouldn't consider 'trying' somewhere else.

    « Great Breakfast Selections »

    I understood from recent reviews that the hotel was undergoing some updates and renovations, and believe many rooms have already been done. The hallways in our part of the hotel had brand new brightly colored carpet and the walls and lighting were very nice. However we were disappointed that the King Suite we stayed in, room 130, had not been redone in quite some time, and was probably on the agenda to be done soon. The suite had a nice bedroom with a door between it and the other room. The bedroom had a very comfortable bed and a nice TV. It would have been great to have more places to plug in phone chargers on the bedsides. There is one outlet on either side of the bed, each with a lamp plugged in, and one with an alarm clock. The front room had a small counter with a small kitchenette type sink, a Keurig coffeemaker and a TV on it, and a microwave and a small refrigerator underneath. I would expect if updates are done for this room soon, the kitchenette cabinet/counter would be replaced as they were quite run down. There was also a table and a nice desk chair and a comfortable sofa/bed and a coffee table. We really liked the opaque roll down shades and the room darkening curtains in both the bedroom and the sitting room/dinette. The carpeting in both rooms was a dark brownish gray, and didn't look very fresh and clean and we thought it might have been past due for replacement. There was a decorative clock on the wall of the sitting room, but it was damaged with the clock mechanism missing altogether. The bathroom had a older jetted tub/ with a shower, which would be a nice opportunity to soak in deep swirling water, but the tub was an older model and past due for replacement. The pool and hot tub area in the hotel was very nice, bright and clean. We enjoyed that very much. The lobby area was beautifully decorated and welcoming. Breakfast was really good the two mornings we stayed. Pancakes AND waffles, scrambled eggs and a meat choice. We loved the variety of yogurts, cereals, breads, bagels and sweet rolls. The juice, and coffee was very good. The seating area to go with the breakfast area was large and very practical for both large family groups and couples to sit to eat. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, it was conveniently located to the areas in which we traveled to and from. I am certain our room may have been one of the last areas planned for rennovation, and we would be very interested in staying here again in a King Suite if we had assurances the room has been improved by our next visit to the area.

    « Wow »

    I'm writing this while eating one of the best hotel breakfasts I've had in a long time!! So many choices of good heathy food! My room is large and clean. Recently remodeled. The staff if friendly. Location is kind of tucked away but easy to find. It was nice to have green space outside my window... Which had lovely new blinds. I hope to stay again sometime!!

    « Beautifully redone »

    This hotel has just been renovated- it's beautiful! From the rustic charm of the lobby to the redone rooms we could not have been more pleased. The lobby offers a long table to eat breakfast, play games etc. while not a huge area, it gives ample seating even on a busy weekend to enjoy breakfast. Close to campus, walkable to Jack Trice.

    « Consistently good place to stay »

    We've stayed here 3 or 4 times now and it is consistently good- pleasant and helpful staff, clean rooms, a nice pool area and a very good hotel breakfast. The wrap around front porch and the lobby are both nicely decorated with comfy furniture and pleasant touches (candles on the porch at night) that make them welcoming places to relax, meet with friends, etc. A gas station/convenience store is across the parking lot, restaurants are one exit down the highway (or nearby in downtown Ames). Altogether a pleasant place to stay.

    « Awesome staff! »

    I was able to check in early at 2:30pm and the front desk clerk upgraded my room to a King Suite for the same rate! Awesome room and great location! Room was very clean and quiet. Breakfast offered many filling options. Breakfast area was clean and presentable.

    « Very Nice Hotel »

    The breakfast is one of the best hotel breakfasts, it has something for everyone. My 8 year old got to have fruit loops, I had the yogurt bar, and my husband had eggs, ham, and toast. We were all satisfied with everything. The beds are very comfortable. Friendly staff.

    « Family gatheriing »

    Thank you for a wonderful stay. You are always our choice when we come to Ames. My generation has been coming to Ames to visit our grandparents forever. We all love the campus and surrounding areas. Go Cyclones!

    « Thank you Becca. »

    I was in town between business trips and came down with the flu. Becca went above and beyond to make my stay as comfortable as possible. She offered an upgrade to a suite as the carpets below my room were being done and was worried there would be too much noise. She also offered to call around town for places that offered gluten free soup. Please continue your incredible caring touches!

    « Clean and Comfortable with friendly staff »

    We chose this hotel due to others reviews. It was a good choice for location for our visit to Iowa State University. Very convenient. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is clean. During our stay they were doing some maintenance - upgrading the hallway wall coverings. There were no issues with the work going on - other than passing them in the halls, you wouldn't know they were there working. We didn't use the pool or the fitness room while there, though both areas looked clean and nice. The breakfast consisted of waffles and pancakes, cereal, fruit, bread, bagels, eggs (powdered kind) and ham one day, sausage the next. There was also hot oatmeal with several toppings offered. Coffee, water, orange juice and apple juice were also available. The best part of the breakfast is the amount of dining space. They have plenty of tables - which is a nice change from most hotels. I agree with some other reviews about the thin walls. They are very thin. Could hear most everything from the neighboring room, including a sneeze. Would consider staying at this hotel again if in the area.

    « Weekend in Ames Visiting our daughter »

    We stayed at this hotel last weekend while we we visiting our daughter. This was the 4th different hotel in Ames we have tried on visits. All where decent, but this place was tops. Wonderful location, close to campus. lobby was bright and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean , beds comfortable, and it was quiet at night. My 15 year old son likes to swim, and he said the water in the room was nice and warm. Breakfast was also top notch. A wonderful weekend, and we will be staying here again on our next visit.

    « Outstanding Surprise »

    From the outside, there is nothing about this hotel that screams stay here. However, on the inside, it is very well maintained and their staff wants you to have a great stay. This is a very clean hotel. The staff is extremely pleasant and their free breakfast is outstanding - serving fresh waffles, eggs and fresh baked scones. The hotel is in a great location, just off Rt. 30, and less than a mile (within a long walk away) from Jack Trice Stadium and Hilton Coliseum. We will definitely stay here again when in town again.

    « Good Stay but Thin Walls »

    We have stayed here several times while visiting my dad. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean, and our kids enjoy the indoor pool. Also, the breakfast is quite nice and included an oatmeal bar that my husband remarked about (which means it was impressive!) Our only problem this particular visit was the thin walls. We were at the end of the hotel farthest from the front desk, near the conference room. We could clearly hear people in the hallway who seemed to congregate in front of the conference room in the morning. This made it impossible to sleep in. At night, the walls were so thin, we could hear the guy next door sawing logs so loudly it woke us up (poor guy needs to see a specialist!) We did find that running the heater helped, as the unit was loud enough to drown out the snores. This was our first negative experience at the University Park Inn, and the rest of our experience was positive so we will likely stay again and be sure to run the air unit!

    « Very nice hotel with friendly and attentive staff »

    Great place to stay, reasonable rates and friendly and attentive staff. Nice comfortable rooms. Cleanliness is definitely a priority here. Close to Iowa State and restaurants. Will stay here again. Breakfast was good and area kept well stocked. Made me feel l a valued customer.

    « Great Place To Stay »

    Stay was great. Room was clean, price was very comparable, breakfast was great, and staff went above and beyond. I have stayed here for the past 3 years for my annual conference and have never been disappointed

    « Quiet and Comfortable »

    I come to this hotel once a year, because of location and ease of parking. With recent renovations the rooms are clean, stylish and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast was exceptional and included. Waffles, pancakes ham and eggs a yogurt bar as well as hot oatmeal with all the treats.

    « Pleasant stay near Iowa State University »

    Stayed for four nights at this Best Western Plus location. The reception staff was great, and they even checked on the room to see everything was all right, so it made me feel special, which makes a great stay I suppose. Just about everything was above average and pleasant: the hot breakfast offered variety of carbs, drinks and yogurts, a lobby/breakfast area was quaint and spacious, indoor pool and gym were definitely some of the nice perks. Free Ames Tribune (local newspaper) and USA Today were provided in the lobby. Heating, bed, workspace, shower, in-room amenities, inc. Keurig coffee machine, mini-fridge, microwave and more all proved to be quite decent. There's a convenience store/gas station right next to the hotel as well. No proper restaurants within walking distance, except for the one in Gateway hotel right across the street. One complaint I had was the quality of water, which was too soft, thus making the shower experience a little too slippery. Overall, I can see myself going back to this establishment with friendly and professional staff in the future, if I were to come back here.

    « Great room, great breakfast »

    I stay at this hotel once a year for business and it is top rate. The lobby and rooms are remodeled and clean, the bed is comfy, and the breakfast is fabulous. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I will stay here anytime I am in the area.

    « Another Great Stay! »

    We were in town for my mother's memorial service and several of our family members from out of state stayed here, all arriving on different dates and times. We were constantly gathering in the lobby area to meet and the staff was so patient and pleasant. Exactly what we all needed during such a sad time. Great staff! Wonderful property! Excellent breakfast buffet!

    « Acceptable hotel. Friendly staff »

    Acceptable hotel. Friendly staff. Clean, located right off the Interstate, and 5 minutes drive to campus. No bus o poor bus connection to campus. Breakfast was good, but if you stay more than two days you will notice the lack of variety.

    « Average »

    Rooms were small and sink was outside the bathroom. I like privacy when I am getting ready in the morning and we had non family members with us so this made it a little awkward. I am also an early riser so since the sink was in the bedroom area I woke everyone up getting ready. Felt the charge was much more than the value.

    « Great staff comfortable room »

    Attended a 5 day meeting and stayed for 4 nights. Room was very clean and great housekeeping service everyday. The entire hotel was clean and staff very friendly and helpful. Used the hot tub and poo one night and was relaxing. Breakfast was good. Had a variety of breakfast items every morning. I enjoyed the taste of the coffee. It was not an instant coffee taste like some places I have been.

    « Overnite stay at Ames, IA »

    We were extremely satisfied with all services received while staying at your hotel. We were only there for a short overnite but enjoyed. Especially liked the free breakfast. The hotel lobby was gorgeous.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    Stayed here without researching. Showed up sight unseen. Was happily surprised. Let me list the good stuff. Pleasant staff in multiple interactions. Clean room. I liked the room layout too--had a King bed by the window, then the bathroom, and then a living area by the door. Gave it more of a homey feel. Breakfast area was clean, well stocked, and lots of choices. Pool was warm. If I have the need to stay in Ames, I would definitely stay here again.

    « Great Stay »

    This hotel has been renovated and looks great throughout inside and outside. Liked having a frig with freezer space. Nice having Keurig coffee maker and microwave. The sink was also updated with contemporary faucets. The beds were very comfortable.

    We stayed here while visiting our son at ISU and attending a basketball game and will definitely stay here again. It was less expensive than the newer hotels closer to the interstate, bigger room, very comfortable bed, close to campus and apartments in West Ames, and very quiet. Also liked having a gas station/convenience store in the same parking lot. Only drawback was there seemed to be a lack of parking when we arrived back late at night, although that may have been due to the snowstorm that hit while we were at the game. Breakfast was fairly standard but decent selection.

    « Nice night stay »

    Nice staff. The room was clean. Nice bed to sleep and get a good night's rest. I did not use the internet nor the fitness room. Breakfast was included and a bit of variety. Enough to plan another stay!

    « Great place to stay. »

    We have stayed in Ames many times, but for some reason never here. That will change as this was a great place to stay and good value for the money. Rooms were very nice, clean and quite. Pool area was nice. Breakfast was awesome. Coming down the stairway to breakfast in the morning felt like we were at someone's home meeting up with everyone in the morning to eat. The staff was nice as can be and very helpful as well.

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    We were in town as a team for a basketball tournament. This was our first stay at BWP in Ames and we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and friendliness all around. Our room was nice (not to mention the water pressure of the shower was above average). Breakfast was good. Pool was your typical hotel pool, but the kids enjoyed it. Price was a little higher than we would normally pay, but was a busy weekend so it wasn't completely out of line. Overall, good experience and would consider staying there again.

    « February 2016 Stay »

    Great except for coffee. Location was great to get to ISU campus. Plenty of seating at breakfast. Pillows were extremely comfortable, and they had a roll-away waiting for us in our room when we arrived. Plenty of parking. We didn't go to the pool area, but it looked great, clean, and nice-sized. Friendly staff. We will stay again. No complaints except for the coffee. The other items at breakfast were right on, though. Just make better coffee, and this place would be perfect!

    « Okay Stay »

    The room was okay. I had a king suite. I was going to the other side of the bed and I saw that there was a big hole in the wall. There is also parts of the wall that is coming off in the bathroom. The service was great, just kind of dirty.

    « Great Motel, Easy to Find »

    Hotel is easy to find, just off the interstate. Hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful when asked. Interior of the hotel was warm and inviting. Rooms were neat and clean. The pool area was nice with a whirlpool and 5' deep pool. The water was warmer than most. I have no complaints about this hotel and would recommend it to anyone staying in Ames.

    « Lovely stay in Ames »

    A+ experience. What a pleasure it is to always stay in this little slice of heaven. Any time you are in the area, always pick this place. Everyone on staff makes your stay a welcoming experience. Always stay with them when we are in Ames.

    « Nice Hotel in Ames »

    This is a relatively modern hotel with clean rooms. The rooms have minifridges which is a neat feature. Most importantly the rooms are clean and smell nice and appear to be well maintained. All in all, I am very happy with my stay and definitely worth using in the future.

    « Motor Coach Driver »

    Wow, what a great hotel. When you first enter it is so charming. The front desk staff is so nice and very accommodating. The rooms have been rehabbed and are very clean, the beds were so comfortable with great pillows. The hotel has a very nice indoor pool and hot tub. Breakfast was OK. Great access to the interstate and the University. Only down side is when they rehabbed the rooms they should have put a new mat in the tub as the new in it looked very dingy.

    « Nice clean motel »

    We were staying at motel since we were in town for a conference. We did not spend much time at the hotel except to sleep, have breakfast and leave, but it is a nice clean motel and the bed was very comfortable. I enjoyed the healthy food options they supplied and the topping options for the whole grain oatmeal. This was our 2nd time to stay at this motel. I didn't have a chance to check out the hot tub and pool or the fitness room.

    « Hotel »

    It was very cozy, I absolutely loved the feel of the lobby and breakfast was amazing! It was in the perfect location for what I needed and will definitely be going back next time I need a place to stay in Ames.

    « Wonderful Stay »

    Easy checkin. Very clean comfortable room. The bed was very comfortable with pillow choices.It was nice to have a sink and refrigerator. The coffee was very good. The whirlpool tub worked very well and the water was plenty hot. Breakfast had plenty of variety including oatmeal with several toppings, eggs, sausage, pastries, juices, bagels and toast. It was nice to have hot water for tea. We would be very happy to stay there again.

    « Nice Remodel »

    The remodel was a welcome surprise as we've stayed at this hotel before. Always great service and pleasant accommodations. Also appreciate that they allow pets as we often travel with our dog. Staff is always friendly and breakfast is good. Perfect location for a regular trip we take through Des Moines. Easy to access.

    « Solid night's sleep & very nice accomodation! »

    This hotel is very near campus and close to downtown. Access to & from is quick. The hotel is immaculately maintained and the rooms modernly appointed. Wifi, TV, Keurig coffee - all worked perfectly. The breakfast was fantastic! Lots of choices & hot! Housekeeping is A+ here and we had a bed/mattress from heaven! Awesome sleep! We would stay here again anytime!

    « Beautiful updates »

    Beautiful remodel of this hotel lobby and rooms! Was glad to see Breakfast had some healthier options that were delicious! Have always enjoyed staying here as it is a great value for a great location.

    « Nice Decor »

    I loved the new Design in the rooms. The remodel in the Lobby and the Breakfast area is very nice. Breakfast was hot and very tasty. We compared price to The Gateway which is where our all day meeting was at. Higher per night for a room that was not as nice, and they only offered breakfast in a very small resturant, which was not included in the price of our stay.

    « Best Western ames »

    I've lived in ames a long time and alway thought this place suc. It doesn't look nice, has a shoddy parking lot that shares with a dirty gas station. I used a site that gives you the hotel name after you buy and had a frown when this hotel was what I got. Upon arrival the desk was really nice. Although this is ames so of course they were nice. The room was upstairs down a super long hallway. Oh my goodness, the room, not at all like my impression gave me. It was nice sized, ultra clean, smelled and looked brand new and was pretty much awesome. Overall nothing to write home about but wow, it is for sure better than some better name hotels I've been at in ames and the price, while discounted, was about half what it was probably worth. A downside was that breakfast was really really bad. Overall especially given the price I did get this is a 5 rating for sure.

    « Great place, exceptional staff »

    Great location next to ISU with clean, comfortable rooms and facilities. The lobby area is charming and feels like a home lounge room and was a lovely place to relax at the end of a long day. Best of all though were the staff. Every one of them was helpful and courteous and knew what we needed even before we did. They were an absolute credit to the hotel. We couldn't have been happier with our stay there.

    « Great Value »

    Very friendly staff and comfortable hotel. Easily accessible from Highway 30 and close to ISU University. The breakfast is a nice mix of cold and hot food choices. Even though both are small, there is a nice pool and fitness facility.

    « Good place to stay and reasonable price »

    The location is great, near technology companies and University of Iowa. Plenty of restaurants nearby. The breakfast and other amenities were standard for best western. I would recommend this hotel if you are in the area and looking for a good value with comfortable bed and all that you need.

    « Great stay, Great Staff »

    First time visit, slept great!! Being in the hospitality industry myself I am very picky with hotel stays, this exceeded my expectations, very clean rooms, amazing breakfast!! Shout out to all the friendly staff with a special mention to Sadie and Stevie!!! Great job!!!!!

    « Good sleep. Good breakfast »

    The motel was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. I got a good nights sleep. Good breakfast in the morning. It has a workout room and swimming pool. It did not smell like chlorine. It smelled good, looked good. Good experience. It is close to the University.

    « Satisfaction Guaranteed! »

    The Front Desk staff is delightful, always a warm welcome & very quick to complete any requests you may have. The rooms are large, very clean, modern & have comfortable beds. I would recommend staying at this hotel!

    « Another good stay »

    Second time we have stayed here with a group, everything was good, pool was warm, staff were friendly and helpful, beds are comfortable. We had 14 people in 4 rooms (4 families) for a birthday party. The best thing is being able to use the eating area for our group get-togethers. Breakfast was good too. Great stay!

    « Good place with great rates »

    We stay here on our way to Minnesota usually once a month. The breakfast is decent. The beds are comfortable and its close to several good restaurants. The price is always fair and its a pet friendly hotel, which is very helpful to know for people who travel with pets.

    « Very nice hotel »

    The first time I've stayed at a best western plus this hotel exceeded my expectations. Very clean, super close to campus and super friendly staff. The King with pull out sofa (2 room) option worked perfect for our family. Surprisingly great breakfast - something for everyone.

    « Love This Hotel! »

    This past weekend was my third time in three months staying at this hotel. All my stays have been related to my son attending Iowa State University. This hotel is priced right, very clean, up-to-date, and has friendly and attentive staff.

    First time I've stayed at a best western plus - i've stayed at Country Inn and Amerinn in Ames - this hotel exceeds the other two. Very clean, super close to campus, surprisingly great breakfast and bed, super friendly staff. LOVED the King with pull out sofa (2 room) option.

    « Great Hotel. Close to Iowa State. Quiet. Good breakfast »

    Never stayed at a Best Western but it was recommended by the Veterinary Hospital of Iowa State. We drove here for our dog to receive care at the Vet Hospital. Pet friendly hotel, though we never saw another animal. Excellent customer service. Friendly and helpful staff. Good, free breakfast. Make your own Belgian waffles with fresh fruits. They also have a " rewards" program, which is nice as we will be back again in 3 weeks.

    « Wedding Party stayed here »

    We had such a wonderful stay here. Beautiful lobby and rooms were very clean. I worked with Tim to coordinate the rooms for the wedding guests and he worked so hard to make everything perfect, and it was. All the staff was so nice and accommodating for all our needs which made it so much easier for us during the stressful part of weddings. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    « Quality and Comfort »

    This Best Western exceeded my expectations! Very nice modern decor in the lobby and room, comfortable bed, fridge and microwave in the room. I enjoyed the spacious bathroom, and variety of things offered at the free breakfast!
