“Great hotel in Waterloo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This is a nice newer hotel in Waterloo and a great choice. The lobby is great, open, inviting, fireplace and coffee, tea and cocoa all day along with apples and oranges to grab as a snack.
I stayed last week during a huge snowfall and in spite of the heavy snow, there were plenty of employees and support people working.
The fitness center has 2 treadmills, an elliptical machine, a bike and weights. Each workout machine had its own television monitor which is a huge benefit for a Hampton Inn. (So many still have the one tv in the room, so whoever is in there first forces their tv viewing on you). Another excellent point of the fitness center was a small refrigerator in the room with chilled bottles of water. EXCELLENT

The room was large, nice bathroom with plenty of counter space on the vanity.

Plenty of open plug-ins to use for charging electronics. - even at the nightstand. Another thoughtful plus.

The windows open, which is great to allow fresh air vs. some of the cheaper hotels that are paned glass only, and feel a little stagnant. It was nice to open the window a crack to feel the fresh air for a few minutes and air the room out.

Could have walked to an IHOP from the hotel, but within 5 minutes drive to several restaurants including Panera, Olive Garden, steak house etc. etc.

Lots of parking on BOTH sides of the hotel with doorways for easy entry no matter where you parked. Another plus with the snow!

The hotel was booked prior to my making my reservation. Had to use Diamond benefits to get a room. I assume this is because it's the best hotel in town, so you'll want to book early.

I stayed at this location for one week and was completely satisfied. The room was clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the use of the workout and pool facilities. The hotel is conveniently located near shopping and a multitude of dining choices. I would definitely stay at this hotel if I ever return to the Waterloo area.

Room Tip: *No restaurant on-site. I cannot change the selection.*

After being out in the freezing weather that day it was great to check in to this Hampton Inn with a warm welcoming fireplace in the lobby/breakfast area. I picked up someone from a nearby hotel on the way to dinner and was pleased I was not staying there with a colder less welcoming lobby. The room I stayed in also was very spacious and had a good sized desk for working on.

We stayed a Friday and Saturday night. The location is nice, just off of San Marnan. The lobby area is very nice- upscale furnishings and a fireplace.

I didn't use the health club facilities but they were located adjacent to the lobby area. There were four or five pieces of cardio equipment but I couldn't tell of there were any free weights.

The free breakfast was good, many options to choose from. They had fruit, cereal, oatmeal, bagels, english muffins and more. They also had a waffle station. My only complaint is that both mornings a family of four beat me to the waffle iron so I had to wait for four waffles to be made before I could take my turn.

The room was nice. The bathroom had a large shower and vanity. The room had a refrigerator, micorwave and desk. It also had a large flat screen TV that was nice but it was a little older so the time it took to chance channels took forever compared to newer flat screens. The room was a little larger than most standard hotel rooms. My favorite thing about the room is the charging station next to the bed. They had four electrical outlets and USB outlets for charging cell phones. I wish more hotels had this feature.

This hotel was extremely clean, quiet and offered a fantastic breakfast. It was close to shopping and restaurants.The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was clean and the hot tub was "hot". While we did not use the exercise room, it was in great shape and clean. We enjoyed a great night's sleep on a great mattress. The room was quiet and we did not hear other travelers.

Room Tip: We have never had a bad experience at a Hampton. You may pay a few dollars more a night, but what y...

This hotel is wonderful in every way! The rooms were pristinely clean, the staff friendly and helpful, the breakfast delicious and convenient. In addition, there are plenty of restaurants in the area, and there is a Super Target just across the way also if you'd like to buy food for the ensuite fridge/microwave.
I would highly recommend this hotel!

Staff was super friendly. Lobby, rooms, pool area etc were all neat, clean and decorated nicely for under $95. Hotel is located close to Longhorn Steakhouse and Super Target. Will definitely stay again if we're ever in the area. I'd recommend this hotel to family & friends!!!
