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...

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.

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...

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.

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
