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.

We had a great stay during our trip. The staff was very helpful. Breakfast was very good. I would recommend this motel to anyone traveling to the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area.

Good clean reasonable priced motel. Friendly check-in, reasonable breakfast. They called it continental but also had boiled eggs and sausage. Oh and they are pet friendly, $10 each pet which is pretty standard. No complaints.

Room was nice but needed more lighting. We were in the handicapped room. Awesome that there was no platform under bed easier to use hoyer lift for my sister. Needed more lighting and plugs.

With cheap rates and great service I know I will be staying at this hotel again. Nita at the front desk was very helpful when it came to making some unexpected reservation changes, which happens a lot in the business world. Whenever I needed something, the staff was there and always helpful. The breakfast was good too.
