“a bit of both...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

the breakfast was good. the tv was black and white. the ac stayed at 1 speed and temp. the front desk was good. there was old food under the bed. the bed was comfortable. the location was easy access. the radio did not work except for the time. the bathtub had not been cleaned for there was bathtub ring on it. I cleaned it. the housekeepers need to do a better job.

Find somewhere else to stay. Staff was short handed. Counter staff was uneducated. Room terrible.

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.
