My girlfriend & I stayed here this previous Friday and Saturday and it was absolutely great! It only cost us $101 for a room with two bedrooms! The bathroom was wonderful; big, clean, well stocked. The shower was a great size, and there was even a normal sized fridge and microwave in our room's kitchen area, which was very surprising!... More

The staff, particularly Lauren, were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Would recommend this place for its convenience and helpful staff. We were able to BBQ all with equipment present. Rooms were quiet.

Only one toilet paper roll, no tissues, towels look like rags, clug toilet, hole in wall, cracks in the floor, yellow pillow, blind missing, wall with 2-3 coat of wallpaper, yellow floor. I paid 60$ and it wasn't worth it... Lobby is clean. service was great.

This room was billed as a '2 bedroom Suite'. It wasn't. It was a 2-bedroom dorm-room. Literally. I travel a lot, and this is possibly the worst place I've ever stayed. When I arrived, I stood at the front desk, directly across from the Reception agent (who quite clearly saw me), & she did not even acknowledge my presence for... More

Upon arrival…People everywhere, it was 245, and check in was not till 3. They stuck to that, so it caused unnecessary loitering, and drinking in the parking lot. First thing I could smell when I walked in was Pot…hmmmm…ok..whatever. We had a two bedroom suite. For 130 it was disgusting. Each floor, the elevator opened to tile "institutional" floors. hallways,... More

My wife and I brought out 2 granddaughters to the Waterloo Airshow and did not want a 3 hour drive the day of the event. The accommodations are a typical college residence and well worth the price. The staff were very accommodating and the room was clean. We had to ask for more towels, but that was no problem. The... More

When we checked in our room didn't hAve toilet paper or tv. Called to get another room. Was a bit of a hassle to get another room. Carpets were very stained but otherwise rooms were fairly clean. TV was too small. Line to checkout was too long. Will not be returning again.
