TripAdvisor Rating


The 87 guestrooms at the BEST WESTERN PLUS University Park Inn & Suites all come with king or double beds, mini-fridges, microwaves, coffeemakers, free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. Connecting and adjoining rooms are available, but limited. Some accommodations are pet friendly, too.

The hotel is located near the Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa, but families can enjoy this property even if not visiting the college. There is an indoor, heated pool, and it is close to local attractions like Reiman Gardens and the Antique Carousel.

Fuel up for the day with a free hearty breakfast daily. However, there are no onsite options for lunch or dinner. Families can enjoy afternoon and evening meals at local eateries, all just a short drive away.

Football game day overnight

by jaymaurice

The hotel is better than the Gateway. Nuff said! They have a microwave and fridge. Very clean and comfortable.

We have stayed in many hotels in the area including the supposed nicest, the Gateway. Not! We will be staying here from now on.

We have been staying at this propriety for many years while we are in town for a football weekend. Tim and his staff do a great job in making our stay enjoyable. The hotel has gone under some recent renovations of rooms and lobby area. The breakfast is pretty good with enough choices to satisfy most tastes. (Eggs, waffles, yogurt, cereal and assortment of muffins and bread.). There is a coffee maker in rooms as well. Although we do. To use the pool very often, there always seems to be a few people
there or in hot tub. I like the fact we do not have to commit to a 2 night stay as many area hotels now require during football weekends. If you want to walk to stadium it is about a mile. They also have bicycles you can rent.
