The staff was very friendly and the place was quiet and clean. The rooms were very large and the beds were super comfy. The fitness center was great and not crowded when I was there. Definitely a good place for a cozy getaway weekend.

I really enjoyed my stay at this Quality Inn. The beds were dreamy. The staff makes you feel welcome and treated me like a VIP. My room was very very clean. As was the lobby and pool area. I enjoyed a good breakfast. The coffee was hot and tasted fresh brewed, same with the coffee in the lobby (available 24... More

This Hotel charges 60 a night for a room that is worth about 35. Greeted the first morning by a manager colorfully discussing the skill set of an employee. Second elevator is still broken - see the November posting. No mention of what the breakfast included or where it was located. Strip Club on the corner. Visiting family and one... More

I'm staying at the Quality Inn for business. Now if yhouve never been to Waterloo.. it's not exactly your sweet-life kinda city. My complaint is a combo of the hotel and it's location. Jenni at the desk was a sweetheart she also booked my reservation for me. The room is huge, I mean huge and the bed was actually pretty... More

I stayed here because it offered the best coupon in a travel brochure. It is not a fancy place, could use a top to bottom cleaning, and the neighborhood appeared to be a little seedy but there were no issues. The bed was comfortable though I'd recommend you bring your own pillow as they offered some really small square pillows... More

Please read the other reviews! They are factual. My list of complaints are: 1. Parking lot is dark. 2. Carpets in hallways are stained and odoriferous. 3. Only one elevator works. 4. Fitness room machines were all broken. All three of them. 5. Room refrigerator was so loud I unplugged it. 6. Furniture in room is vintage second hand store.... More

My fiancee and I stayed here for two nights. Unfortunately we didn't read the reviews before booking a room. The hotel is in need of a gut rehab. There were disgusting looking, dirty couches in the lobby. Even though we had a non-smoking room, as soon as we stepped into the hallway our noses were assaulted with the pungent smell... More

My stay was not good. This hotel is not located in a good part of town. My company booked me here because they needed me to come to Waterloo for a special project last minute - our first four choices were unavailable at such short notice. I stayed here last night - on the fifth floor. It was late at... More

It is a nice hotel for the price and a 1 night stay. It really needs some updates to the rooms. Better mattresses and TVs would be nice. The room we stayed in needs a deep cleaning of the carpets and sofa. The staff was very welcoming, helpful and courteous.

The good- convenient to downtown Waterloo- walking distance to everything. The bad- in need of renovation from top to bottom- stinky hallways, dirty carpet, old beds and furniture. So-so breakfast. Rates were pretty high for this level of property.
