“Spacious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I've never been in such a spacious hotel. We got a room with a king size bed and was amazed with all the space - from a deep closet to store luggage to the big bathroom. The bathroom was very nicely decorated (nicer than mine at home). The room was very clean including the ceiling fan in the bathroom and the tub and sink drains ran fast. KUDOS to the housekeeping staff.
The breakfast area was huge as well. They could have stuffed a lot more tables in the space but they didn't need to based on the number of people there. It was nice to have elbow room in a breakfast area without having to sit in a conference room. I'm giving it an Excellence for value because we had a free night - I don't know what the room would have cost otherwise. The only negative were the other guests on our floor (4th floor) who kept slamming their room door - very rude but not the hotel's fault.

THe rooms were very large. THe queen size beds were quite comfortable. The free breakfast was adequate. The neighborhood seemed to be safe with several malls within walking distance. There were quite a few restaurants, also within walking distance, to choose from.

If you looking for a clean and quality hotel in waterloo,than this Holiday Inn Express has it all.I stayed at this hotel 2 years ago and was not happy with the cleanliness and quality of the rooms and since than i have been stayiny in other hotels in the area,but last time when i drove by I saw difference from outside and though to give a chance,as soon as i entered the lobby i could tell the difference,with the warming staff and when i entered the room i was suprise to see the quality and cleanliness of room.I have stayed in several Holiday Inn but havent anything close like this one.Looks like the company has hired a very experienced GM who is very detailed and quality minded with lot of experience in quality
I am very detailed when it comes to room cleanliness,this one has proved me wrong
Keep up the good work

Room Tip: Very Clean Hotel.The rates are high but its worth

Great hotel! Nice bed, clean room. The breakfast was good - pancake machine was broken while we were there. Pleasantly surprised to have a refrigerator too! Unfortunately we didn't have time to use the pool or hot tub.
