This was my first stay at this hotel. The staff was excellent. They were attentive to every need. There is a great restaurant right outside the door. The room was clean and quiet. Great stay for the price.

I visit the Waterloo area regularly on business and enjoy staying at the Howard Johnson. The rooms are always clean and I appreciate the breakfast and being able to exercise in the pool. I always find the staff to be helpful and friendly.

everything was really good with the exception of the carpet being wet by the Jacuzzi tub. we think they fixed a recent leak, so no major issues.

I stay here a couple days for business each month. I always have a good experience while staying here. The rooms are always clean and the parking lot seems to be safe. The staff is great and is very helpful on any questions I have about the town. Suzan is always very friendly in the morning and asks me how... More

Getting started was rough. The toilet still had leftovers in it and was disgusting, there was hair in the sheets on the bed, and someone tried to come into the room without knocking after we had been in there for at least 45min. We didn't use the pool but we did do the breakfast and it was ok. Like I... More

The staff was welcoming and efficient.The room was clean. The mattresses were a bit soft (worn). No wi-fi was available at any time during our stay. Neither I with my touchpad, my wife with her Nexus tablet nor my son with his iPad was able to find any signal with enough strength to make a connection.
