I was highly disappointed with the exercise room. After taking my usual pre workout mix, I was amped up for a good routine. I entered the room only to find that the multi station cable machine is not functional in any way. The cables were off the pullys and frayed to the point of poking me in the finger. I managed to get one set of cables working however the bar where the weights slide up and down hadnt seen grease in years. I gave up on that plan and thought well I would do some cross trainer cardio. The best machine for that didnt even have a cord to plug in the wall. I proceded to get on the other cross trainer. It was so unstable like a cheap walmart immitation. Nothing works in this exercise room. The website pictures that make it look great are very deceptive. Very poor excuse for a place that has TripAdvisor awards sitting out in the lobby.

This hotel is very nice for being a budget class hotel. Check in is at 3 but they allowed us to check in at 2 free since we were early. Super nice staff. Breakfast was the usual but very good. My only issue was my key kept not working they had to keep resetting it but I was the only person with that issue so it must be a minor glitch.

1st room checked into was occupied. 1st morning breakfast was cold. 2nd night smoke alarm battery malfunctioned at 1 am.

In my trip across the country, My stay at The Days Inn in Waterloo was the most comfortable. Thank you Annette and all the staff there. I was so tired when I arrived and you received me like a member of your family. I found your Hotel extremely clean and with everything I needed for a good night's rest. Thank you very much and I look forward to staying with you on my next trip. Thanks!

This was the first time we had been to Waterloo. Our hotel was very comfortable. We had a business suite so we could go back and relax with a couch and recliner there. We were on our Harley trike and don't like to ride when it starts to get dark so we spent time in our suite in the evening Would stay there again.

Looking for a break in the routine about the kids had a good time nice place to visit look forward to coming back

We enjoyed our stay. Nice clean rooms! My husband was happy that their was a laundry room! The beds we're comfortable too!

Breakfast did not seem to include yogurt. Otherwise, all was good. A nice place to stay at a reasonable price.

We were traveling with our llamas and needed to be able to see our trailer, from our room. The staff was more than accommodating. They went out of their way to help us get water for them too.
