4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The staff is great, and the rooms are clean and commodious. Those in which we stayed had a refrigerator, microwave oven, and a coffeemaker. The price was reasonable, the house computer freely available. The location was good for us and probably good for anyone else. The spine of that area is Ridgway Avenue, and the rest of Waterloo can be related to Ridgway Avenue. The hotel is just off Ridgway Avenue, and thus, accessible to Waterloo and Cedar Falls.

The swimming pool, indoors and easily available, is just fine, nice and warm. And it is especially friendly to handicapped users. It has an ADA-prescribed derrick, which allows a user to strap herself in at poolside and be lowered into the water. The process is reversed at the end of the swim.

The staff is welcoming and informed. The Howard Johnson Waterloo-Cedar Falls is good, an especially good value.

This hotel definitely exceeds the standards from any other Howard Johnson I've been to. This location is very well-appointed with the modern rooms and it is very clean. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and breakfast was simple but delicious. My children especially enjoyed the hot chocolate chip cookies and popcorn that were available in the afternoon. This is an excellent and affordable place to stay near the town, I would definitely recommend it to my friends and family!

This place was wonderful and absolutely charming! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to relax just a little bit away from the noises of the cluster of hotels in town. The staff was very friendly and We will definitely return!
