With all contact with staff it was apparent that I was a bother to them. Didn't feel welcome there. Also only one person on duty even at busy check in time. They hadn't bothered to put out the free local paper by the time I checked out. Another issue is that I had to go to front desk to check... More

Noisy patrons kept me awake (running/talking outside room all night). Other patrons complained as well. Changed rooms Sunday (2nd flr as initially requested). No issues.

We arrived at the Howard Johnson without a reservation and they were very accommodating to our needs. We had stayed with them on previous occasions and have always been satisfied with the hotel. The breakfast served was very good and the rooms were very clean.

Booked a deluxe room online but was given a standard room at check in. They said there was nothing they could do.

Hubby and I came to Waterloo to Silver Eagle Harley Davidson for service on our bike. The motel is right down the road. We checked in and the evening desk clerk was very friendly and put us in a ground floor room. I have bad knees and stairs are a pain. The room was nice and clean. Free Wi-Fi, lots... More

This was a very clean motel. Beds comfortable, quite atmosphere, Hot breakfast options but weren't very hot. (temperature). Should have microwaved. I would recommend this motel. Breakfast issue is easily resolved. Reasonably priced and give AAA discounts. Had Wi-Fi but had to go through ads before it would allow access to it. Didn't know if it was spam so never... More
