Very pleased with this hotel. Always a great stay! Our family stayed at this hotel several times over the past year and we are always pleased with our stay. Has great breakfast with many options and we love the outside seating areas to visit after a long day.

This was a last minute thing for us. We were so pleasantly surprised with the quality of our stay. The most comfortable bed and pillows ever! New and attractive decor. The pool was not big but it did the trick for our kids. Very nice room.

Was there for the university graduation. They were completely full but showed great care to provide the best service. Rooms clean, nice breakfast and terrific front desk staff. Nice pool /hot tub. Very comfortable beds. If you are in Ames IA for a university function, this is a great place to stay.

My family has been staying at the Best Western in Ames for years. Now that I'm married, my husband and I still choose to stay at the Best Western because it is a great value and always clean. It's our first choice, always!

Staff was so helpful and very nice!!! Ashley and Mariah rock! Good location, and easy access to whatever you need. The pool area was nice. Fitness area was good, and that is a big deal with me. I would use this motel anytime I am in town.
