I Waterloo over the weekend on business. There was a tournament in town so this was all there was. I can see why. Lobby is dingy, room smells even though there's fresh paint (obvious from the drops everywhere). Had to go to the front desk for towels. Awful insulation means that it's road noise (and train noise). All night long.

We are a basketball team who was passing through. We stepped off of the bus late at night and found a heroin needle laying on the ground! When we checked in they told us that the hotel was under renovation - there was carpet rolled up in the hallways. One of our player rooms found a bottle of assorted pills... More

I stayed at the Waterloo Quality in for about 2 weeks almost waiting for approval on an apartment just across the street from the hotel. The room was clean which is most important to me. Unfortunately the phone in room 226 was unable to dial outside. No worries though. The staff was friendly and very helpful. For instance when I... More

Avoid this hotel. We reserved a 2 night stay months in advance for Waterloo Irish Festl. We did not receive the type of room we reserved although we showed up exactly at check in time (they said this was Expedia's fault although I had the confirmation showing the room type we reserved in-hand.). Staff told us, oh so sorry nothing... More

We couldn't believe the spaciousness of the suite we got for a very low price. This was without a doubt our favorite hotel for our five-week trip. (We considering sub-letting the second room <grin>)...

The carpets are dirty. The windows need to be replaced! Actually I think they should tear down the hotel and replace it. The hotel is located in a run down part of the waterfront , MA NY vacant buildings. Not many choices for restaurants. Waterloo should do more for this area.
