    They had not king beds available for our stay (even though that is what was booked) and a room overlooking the gas station mad for a more noisy stay. The rooms where clean and tidy, though having the basin in the room is always unusual.

    This BW had a very pleasing and clean appearance! We loved the decor, cleanliness and comfort. The nearness to ISU/Jack Trice Stadium was excellent. We even walked home after the game. The staff was courteous and welcoming. We will go back for sure!

    If the weather is nice it is like 2 mile 15 minute walk. Ames now has uber and is about 6 bucks. I wouldn't choose a hotel in ames based on that. This hotel is likely the closest to isu I can think of though.
