Filled a need

Parking was not convenient and we walked through a maze of halls with no air movement. But the parking in the garage was free so that made it better. Staff were great and room was clean and very comfortable.

Good value

The staff was prompt, efficient, knowledgeable and courteous; check in was easy and efficient. The room was clean, bathroom amenities were nice, shower has more than sufficient flow to wake you up, the assortment of pillow densities was great and the bed was comfy. Attached parking ramp was handy, complimentary and access easy with covered crosswalk. Wifi access was strong and easy login.

room smelled bad

Our room 717 needs some tlc to get that stink out. It smelled like some musty butt. I almost asked for a different room but didn't want to move all our luggage and the next room end up smelling too. So I sprayed some body spray and got over it. The hott tub is still waiting on a part as I read in another review its been down for a while. And the only snacks you can buy are at the front desk and they are $2 per snack!! Ridiculous really. So I guess you get what you pay for because the price is why we choose that hotel.

wasnt the greatest at all

it was not a very good experience at all. the pool was ice cold, the hot tub was working but nobody was allowed in it, the dining was an absolute nightmare, the waitresses at the restaurant were more focused on chatting then they were on helping the customers, the food was low grade at best, the waitress mixed up all of our orders and didn't get our children their drinks until about 10 - 15 minutes after we got ours, and the room needed a good cleaning and dusting, and the elevators were going berserk and would either not go to the floor it was supposed to or stop at almost every one on the way down.

Not Bad Stay

The Hotel is downtown which isn't all bad. However, the streets are torn up and alot of detours. That and the fact Waterloo must boast the most stoplights in the country. every fifty feet theres a light, annoying as all heck. The Bed was very hard and I got a stiff back the 1st night. TV wasn't programmed so had to scan through all the channels just to watch a few. No breakfast means you're on your own unless you want to eat in the rest in the hotel. They do have good food. We ate there for dinner and the steak was good.Good peetza(thats how they spell it) across the street. a few too many gentlemans clubs close by which made for alot of noisey people hanging around.
