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.

We stayed for only one night. It was one of the worst experiences we have ever had in a hotel of Choice Hotels family. It took over 30 minutes to check into the hotel due to only one person working the desk. We were given key cards to our first room(on the second floor), and the keys would not open... More

Rooms were a bit out dated but they were very spacious, and most of all clean. The desk clerks were alittle unprofessional, but very kind. The parking lot seemed a bit sketchy although we had no problems at all.

I will never stay there again. Very poor quality, water only trickled out of bathroom sink, needs updated and thoroughly cleaned! Only one elevator worked and it was kind of scary sounding. Hallways smelled like stale smoke.

I was in town for my daughters graduation, and wanted to stay "cheap". My company uses Corporate Lodging so I had them book me a room. Upon check in I was informed the room was actually booked for the previous night, but that they would honor the rate and give me a room ($60+ tax and stuff). The room was... More

The wonderful staff more than makes up for this less than 5 star hotel. I stay here every year on business and the staff not only remembers me by name, they also remember my preferences and do their very best to make me feel cared for and at home, There are other hotels nearby that are more up to date,...

I stayed here for 3 nights this past weekend and was very surprised at how nice it was. I was very skeptical about staying after reading reviews on this site and others but gave it a go anyway. I was pleasantly surprised. We had one of the suites on the top floor and was very happy with it. The place... More

The staff was very accommodative & responded quickly to any requests. Made arrangements for separate reservations so we did not have to move rooms in between nites. The rooms were very nice and clean. Very good value. Negatives- no ice machines, elevators very old & one not working. Positive-breakfast was very goo. I only expected continental but they had hot...
