The room was very clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable and also liked the option of changing the temp from the wall instead of the equipment. Having a refrigerator and microwave was a plus as well due to being in a small town and not familiar with the amenities of the area.

We found the Best Western Plus in Independenc, Iowa very clean and neat. the staff was friendly and helpful. We had just been to Ames to watch grandchildren play basketball and this was a great place to catch on some quiet and sleep after 6 games in one day. Very neat and quiet.

I was on a road trip going through Iowa and I swung into place for a night. This was a nice clean hotel. The room seemed spacious with tall ceilings and good natural lighting. I would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights while attending a wedding affair. The bed was very comfortable and the room was adequate. Pool didn't work a couple days. Housekeeping forgot to leave supplies a couple times. Overall it was a good place to stay. Highest price hotel in town.
