It was clean with friendly staff. In the Morning free breakfast had plenty to choose and tasted good. Pool and hot tub was clean. Overall a pleasant and comfortable stay. We would come back again. The only down side was a bit pricey but compared to other choices not bad.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. As former Ames residents, our stay at this Best Western felt like returning home. The room was very clean, which was great for our 10 month old who likes to bite everything. Also, the best thing was being able to open our window!

We stayed at the Best Western Plus University Park Inn in April. Our King Suite was very nice and the bed was comfortable. They offer a full hot breakfast that was great. We had a little issue with our TV, but nothing major. The staff were friendly. We didn't use the pool or the hot tub, but they looked nice.

We were in Ames for an Experience Iowa State visit. The hotel was a short and easy drive away from the central campus area. The hotel was safe, clean, and very comfortable. Friendly, accommodating staff.

The hotel is very clean and beautifully furnished! The desk clerk was so friendly and seemed concerned with our visit to the ISU Veterinary Hospital. Loved the fact that we were not charged for early arrival, and even had a discount for staying there while in town for the Veterinary hospital. The same clerk was also there when we were...
