I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Waterloo Iowa twice now and have had a great experience both times, the rooms are well maintained, very clean and well appointed. The rooms are well insulated to reduce overflow noise from the rooms next door which is great. All your soaps and shampoos etc are provided and replaced each day... More

The hotel makes no attempt to control noise problems at the property. My room was located on the the third floor where there is also a meeting room.

We have family in Waterloo and travel here several times a year. This is our go-to hotel for several reasons, but the first is the cleanliness of the rooms and linens. That's always a big one for us. Other great reasons to stay - fair price, central location and indoor pool and whirlpool. The reason I say it's slipping is... More
