    Weird stay

    Not terrible but not great either. Room was alright. Dogs roaming the halls and periodic parking; didn't realize this was a pet hotel. Refrigerator froze everything I put in it and was falling apart. Dead spider in web in bathroom. Free breakfast was disappointing, even in COVID times.

    Really nice room!

    Room was very comfortable and a great price. I lifted up a couch cushion and found a lighter, so there is a question of how often the pull-out bed is checked. I was also a little disappointed with the very small breakfast variety, especially with them having cereal and oatmeal available but no milk.

    The entrance is quaint and welcoming. The lobby is gorgeous and the music playing was relaxing jazz. They welcomed us without us wearing masks, which was the biggest plus. The room was clean. The bed was super comfortable. The only problem was our shower drain worked very slowly. The pool and hot tub, as well as the breakfast were excellent. Thank you!

    We were in town for a dance competition. The lady at the front desk was super nice. We got back from the competition right when the pool closed. The lady kept it open for the girls to swim for a little bit. It made their day after a long day of traveling and dancing.

    Worst MANAGER EVER

    There is nothing on this site that states there is a pet “fee” when I got to the hotel I was informed that I would be charged an additional 20.00 per night for my 4.5 pound dog at the “pet friendly” hotel. The supervisor on duty argued with me as I stated this was not indicated on this site during booking. Fast forward to check out and the manager continued with sticking her finger in my face and told me she will in no uncertain terms make darn sure that Hotels.com from now on has it on their website site that there is an additional pet fee because “it’s been their policy for 40 years!!!!” The worst hotel stay ever nasty manager, poor customer service and quite frankly if this is what Best Western hires as managers I will never stay at another one of their properties

    We selected this hotel because it was pet-friendly, not a big hotel so we can avoid 'crowds', etc. and was very close to Iowa State. Our room wasn't serviced. Not sure if we had to request to be serviced because of Covid. This is our 1st time staying at a hotel since pandemic. Also, eventhough there was a sign in the front door that 'Face coverings are required in this space', half the time I had to talk to staff, they were not wearing masks.
