Because it was Iowa Irish Fest weekend, rooms were much higher than I just saw quoted That price was way more than the room was worth That said, staff we’re friendly and helpful

I rate rooms based on the bed and bathroom This bed was okay The bathroom was well below adequate It was small You couldn’t get in far enough to close the door without squeezing by the toilet They had done something to the floor of the tub, maybe removed a skid-proof adhesive? It was rough and very slick when wet There was a handicap bar outside the tub but nothing inside to hold on to Not a hotel I want to visit again

Paul Morrison

There is a lot I did not like The first is the unfriendly greeting by the reception staff They were indifferent to the fact that I was waiting to check in and were slow to respond to my questions

I was asked to sign a waiver regarding a pet That waiver stated that, if I did not notify them of the fact that a pet would be staying in the room with me, they would charge me as much as $250 When I noted that I had a pet and asked for them to verify that I had notified them of this, it took them a full five minutes to provide that verificationWhile this hotel is “pet friendly” when asked where I could or should walk my dog the staff at the desk had simply shrugged their shoulders and said, “I don’t know” When I went searching for a place to walk the dog all I found was debris laden areas that I would not allow my dog to walk in I ended up having to walk the dog over to another hotel that had nice grounds where I could allow my dog to exercise I don’t find this type of situation as being very “pet friendly”My room was on the first floor From 7pm until nearly 4am the next morning, there were children running up and down the hallway talking loudly and playing Twice during the middle of the night, I attempted to locate the hotel staff and complain and at neither time did I find anyone! At one point, around 2am, I found the children playing on the hotel’s computer near the lobby I told them that it was time they went to their rooms, and they stared at me and then laughed I had a 10-hour drive to make the next morning and needed a good rest I probably did not get more than four hours of sleep that night thanks to the inconsiderate children, and the unresponsive staffThe morning “breakfast” was terrible The bagels were stale, there was no decaffeinated coffee, and there was very little fruit In the end, I spit out the bagel and went down the street to Panera for breakfastWhen I checked out the next morning the reception staff was just as unfriendly as the staff had been at check-inI got charged $25 because I had a dog travelling with me and staying in my room A VERY HIGHLY trained dog that did not disturb anyone and did not cause any “damage” to the room I am sure that if my dog had barked or somehow disturbed another guest I would have been contacted and told to remove the dog Well, what about the children disrupting the sleep of most of the people on the first floor? I am sure their parents did not pay any extra for their stay, but I paid dearly I paid not only more money to have a pet with me – a pet that has more manners than those children or their parent or your staff – and I paid in a lack of rest before a long drive home Further, I paid over $100 for a room AND a continental breakfast yet the breakfast was so bad that I had to go somewhere else for my coffee and morning bagel I will NEVER stay in this hotel again and I will never recommend this hotel to any of my colleagues

I couldn’t decide between 3 or 4 stars as a rating The outside appearance of the hotel is good Clean parking lot and grounds

Upon entry, the first thing I noticed was the spotted, worn looking arm chairs in the lobby When we got on the elevator to go to the 2nd floor, I questioned the functionality as it looked absolutely hideous! I didn’t dare touch the buttons due to how filthy the elevator inside was There were initials carved on the inside of the door along with really gross fingerprints everywhere! The elevator needs some detailed attention to maintenance and cleanliness It looked like it was going to fall apartUpon entry to our room, I was skeptical after the lobby and elevator, but was pleasantly surprised The room was fairly clean with nicely made beds and clean bathroom Great sized TV Wish more motels had bigger TV’s like this oneBreakfast was fine once it was restocked which the gal was working on when we got downstairs for breakfast The floor was VERY STICKY, though and needed attention I understand the shortage of help these days, so not holding that against this place Breakfast consisted of eggs, sausage, and biscuits/gravy Always like to see these options offered, so that was GREAT! Many other options including the usual waffles, bread, bagels, yogurt, and fresh fruit Coffee was good!Probably wouldn’t stay again, only because it’s Waterloo Will stay in Cedar Falls next time

What a great hotel Price was very fair, room was very nice, continental breakfast was very nice But the best part was the people

Mark was very outgoing, made suggestions where to go get a bite to eat The other employees we very pleasant and outgoing I have been all over the USA, and have stayed at some nice hotels, but wow, the customer service was out of the world On a scale of 1 – 10, I would give them an 11 I WILL be back Thanks again to Mark and the others

Elizabeth Green

I would not recommend this hotelI stayed for 3 days on a work trip When I originally checked in, the front desk employee seemed like she was busy doing other things, but I got checked in quickly

Each day I arrived to the hotel from work my room key was deactivated The front desk employee (who seems to be the only person here most of the time) told me they get deactivated every day which I wasn’t told when I checked in This is frustrating when I am carrying things all the way to my room and then have to come back to the front deskCleaning doesn’t seem to be happening very often either Housekeeping didn’t come to my room the entire stay I think I saw that they come every 3 days However, it doesn’t seem like they keep track of housekeeping at all I also saw another guest (while I was waiting for my room key to be activated) saying that the second room he had been given was also not cleaned Meaning he had already tried two rooms that weren’t clean He was told he would have to wait 30 minutesMy room also did not feel not 100% clean when I arrived One night stand had spots on it And one of the top sheets even had a stain on it (major ick) I didn’t say anything to staff because I brought my own pillows, blankets, and a sheet I could lay on and put their sheets and comforter off to the side… I am certain they would have changed the sheets if I waited but not very comforting to say the leastBreakfast was basic, but fine Although I will say after everything else I didn’t feel very confident eating the food that was prepared besides the prepackaged itemsOverall, not a great experience and I won’t be coming back or recommending this hotel to anyone else from my employer

Pat Mosner

Very disappointed with our stay We stayed 4 nights and never had our room cleaned I even asked to have it cleaned even if it was just to take the trash and give us clean towels, but that didn’t even happen

Then to find out that the pool and hot tub have been closed for over a year When checking out our rooms were not at the price we booked and the gal checking us out did not have the skills to correct it(if you cannot fix pricing, then why are you scheduled to check people out) It took me 6 phone calls to get the pricing fixed Needless to say we won’t stay there next year

We stayed here one night recently and had a positive experience What I liked most about this hotel is that the General Manager and Assistant General Manager were both super hard-working and dedicated to their jobs Those two literally handled the entire breakfast in the morning by themselves (cooking, cleaning, throwing away the garbage, etc) and were super attentive to the customers’ needs

They also mentioned that the two of them personally changed out all the mattresses in the hotel recently by themselves due to the staffing shortage I was beyond impressed and would definitely stay here again if visiting the Waterloo area My kids also enjoyed the pool

Lacey Perez

They didn’t have a roll away bed when we asked, and just something I noticed & definitely not a deal breaker, but our adjoining room had the handy usb box on the desk to charge electronics but ours didn’t, not a big deal just thought it was odd that one would have it and the other did not The kids enjoyed the pool and were up till all hours of the night We surprisingly didn’t get any phone calls from front desk telling us to keep the noise down, so they must have really good sound barriers or really understanding employees and guests lol

Really nice hotel It’s under renovations at the moment but despite that, it is really well kept, clean and comfortable It will be gorgeous once the renos are complete

Room is comfortable and clean as well- beds are SUPER comfy I also used the gym/fitness centre- it is very well maintained and quite large for a hotel gymThey also have a really great outdoor seating area

Jacob Shelley

Negatives:Receptionist wasn’t very warm and didn’t explain that we’re charged an initial fee for incidentals I’ve only experienced hotels where they keep your card on file just in case and not precharge you to refund later if neededThe room doors let a lot of sound in

I could hear people splashing and laughing in the pool as I was trying to sleep and my room was not very close to the poolNo bathtub in my room Not sure if this is most rooms or not, but it was only a shower availableBreakfast cost seems a little high at $10 for cold (cereal, etc), or $14 for warm (bacon, sausage, potatoes, eggs, etc)Breakfast was a little confusing It was unclear if we are to seat ourselves first, see staff first to prepay, go to the buffet first and then pay, or if payment was charged to the room and when we communicate thatNote: There is some construction or renovation at the time of this review, but that doesn’t affect my star rating or experiencePositives:Friendly breakfast staff!Tasty breakfast!Clean room!Comfy bed and pillows!

Theresa Stentiford

Myself I only went there for the Easter Brunch It was fantastic lots of dishes to choose from Ham,roast beef some sort of chicken dish and fish dish

Full breakfast with waffle station also fresh fruits Great for kids also as they had there own complete with chicken fingers Mac and cheese and corn dogs Lots of deserts Juice and coffee served with meal also I was very happy with what we got only wish they had offered a complimentary mimosa or some sort of a Champaign punch

Rob Graham

Hotel staff very friendly and receptive to guests needs Had an issue with some rambunctious guests in the room above me and the staff responded quickly to allow me to move my room to the top floor The hotel itself was in need of repairs, pool was closed half our visit, treadmills need to be repaired, AC not functional in lobby and hallway areas, 1 of 3 washers broken, 1 dryer ate my money, just minor things that add up to a less than desirable stay

There are plenty of food options within walking distance or a short drive There is a newer Hampton Inn within 15 minutes from this one and I will probably stay there my next visit to Iowa Overall wasn’t a terrible stayUpdate to my review – the last night of my stay, the AC in my room caught fire and filled the room with smoke Smoke detectors didn’t sound nor did the sprinklers go off to alert me I woke up to the smell of smoke (electrical fire) from the AC at 3am I turned off the AC and opened the window to clear the smoke Told the front desk about it at checkout in the morning They didn’t seem very shocked about the incident

Anita Burkett

I have stayed at this property before on multiple occasions It was always a safe, clean and comfortable stay I don’t know what happened to change it so radically, but it shouldn’t be associated with the Hilton name

On the first day, I made three trips up and down to have keys reprogrammed because the door wouldn’t work On the third try, I was told I’d have to wrench the doorknob up and down to get the card to engage I fought this glitch throughout my entire stay, having to make 4-5 attempts to get into my room every day When I approached the night clerk about it, she shrugged and replied “I don’t know what to tell you” My room had tons of water damage, which has clearly been repaired in the cheapest and easiest way possible Water stains, peeling wallpaper, mold in the bathroom and a funky mildew smell The mirror frame in the bathroom was speckled with the toothpaste splatter residue of multiple people who had stayed there before The bed was as hard as a rock The pool was broken and closed, but the outside doors to the pool were often propped open Anyone could have wandered into the building My original rate was listed at $157 per night The manager ultimately adjusted it to $89 per night I still feel like I’ve been ripped off I will not stay at this hotel again Very disappointing The only reason it gets two stars from me are the adjusted rate, clean breakfast area and the fact that I didn’t see any obvious bugs

Donna Soderblom

Why is it that the toilets are small & so low? Is it to see the build up of dust & grime in all corners? The dust build up under pictures? The only place I seen that was ‘clean spotless’was the breakfast areaWhen the lady’s cleaned & filled, they didn’t throw crumbs on the floor They were happy & willing to help

People with canes can not walk on the floors wet or dirty floors

When we first checked in the room was 59 degrees I turned up the thermostat and we went to dinner We got back and it was still blowing cold air and it was 60 degrees

The front desk said that something needed to be done in the maintenance room to switch the heat on They did that and then the heat came on I thought everything was fine until it was 78 degrees and the heat wouldn’t turn off The front desk said that there was nothing they could do and offered to switch my room It was 10:30 at night and I had two children with me, so I opted to wait until morning We got a new room the second night and discovered that the thermostat on the wall does not controll the HVAC The temperature of the rooms is determined, in the maintenance room and guests have no control I find this ridiculous The rooms were dirty as well and the bedspreads we’re stained I will not be staying here again

Nicole E

For our past 3 stays, which were during colder months, the heat did not work in any of our rooms and the staff did not address or resolve our issues Hence, we were always very cold while in these roomsIn addition, unfortunately, the front desk doesn’t even recognize loyalty (i

e welcome gifts for diamond members)

Dave Heupel

No one at the front counter for a very long time Finally was able to get checked in almost an hour after I arrived Power was out in the room twice, an alarm was going off in our wall twice, maintenance had to be in our room quite a bit

An offer of a room move or discount would have been niceStaff helpful and friendly, just needed helpBreakfast very good, fitness room very nice, too

Stopped for a night’s sleep before finishing the final 7 hours of our road trip out west I really liked the hard surface floor – rather than the typical questionable carpet The beds were satisfactory

The hide abed couch had some stains, as did the bed spread, but I’m sure those are rarely cleaned I did like how the room had some character – decorated with local college decorWe didn’t see anything special about the breakfast after a quick review (typical hotel ‘breakfast’ offerings), so we got donuts at the gas station

Joy Leet

I can’t even give a star for this hotel We checked in on a Wednesday afternoon and by Thursday night I had 5 bites all over my arms I went to Urgent Care and the Dr said I had a case of bed bugs

The breakfast on Thirsday morning was not fully stocked Coffee was empty and only 1 biscuit was left Eggs were out I did get a full refund but it was a horrible experience My sister-in-law was adjacent to our room and she ended up with 7 bites as well Now I see why this hotel is only 2 star!!!

Craig Dobson

Do not go here Had the worst experience The desk clerk was the rudest I’ve ever seen

Was charged for a room, card was approved, transaction came out of my account, and was refused my room if I didn’t let her bill my card again because the computer didn’t save my information There is a WAY nicer comfort inn 10 minutes away that was 2 dollars cheaper Working with my bank to refute the charges Never staying at anything Wyndam again

The hotel itself is beautiful The staff is wonderful especially Shannon, Holly, and Tatum They went out of their way to be friendly and accommodating

We travel frequently and the bed, pillows, and linens were top notch The toiletries were nice for hotel toiletries as well The pool is very nice and there’s a gorgeous/romantic patio area where my husband and I enjoyed some quality time We definitely recommend this hotel especially for those who prefer luxury accommodations The staff totally made it a great experience

David Glenn

I’m not a fan of Holiday Inn as a whole, but this hotel surprised me It’s definitely on a higher level than any other Holiday Inn I’ve stayed at before The lobby is large and well appointed

There is a fake fireplace/pit, game room, bar, and plenty of seating should you chose to hang out The weight room is basic, but clean Nice pool There’s a small laundry roomMy room was really nice I ended up on a corner, and my room had windows on two sides The view was of the roof, but the added light was worthwhile The bed was comfortable Very nice glass walk-in shower! The room could’ve been cleaned just a little better There was hair in the shower on the wall and a pretty big dust buildup on one small area of the desk Overall though, I was pleased I’d stay here again

Suds

Truck driver here, I stay in hotels across the country on a regular basis, and have had more experiences with varying shades of hospitality than most will ever have This location easily takes the cake The hotel is well maintained and ran, the bar/restaurant downstairs are supreme, and the staff is all extremely friendly

But what will really make your experience above all else is the treatment you’re going to get from Shannon It doesn’t matter if you go talk to her about where to get a good cup of coffee, what to do in the area, or just about the hotel in general She will treat you as if you own the building I have never had such a positive experience with ANYONE in hospitality, ever! My wife and I are new to the area (target DC, Hogan) we stay in hotels every weekend for our 34 hr reset We had every intention of staying at the BW across town based on our recent experience with that chain, but there’s no way this location will ever lose my business so long as Shannon and the other staff members are here Her performance could be cut in half, and I’d still think I was a kingOn the Bar side, (Toast to Toast) the service staff over there is no joke either Heidi will make sure everything is in order for you, and is makes it look easy I’ve seen her be swamped with customers, and you’ll still think you’re the only one that matters

Hotel was great We had a suite which was very nice Your people at the front desk though I’d try to look for some more friendly staff

As we were checking in my fiance asked what time the pool area closed and she said at 11 but that rule is mainly for children so if we’d like swimming past 11 would be okay We had been gone for a wedding all day and came back late my fiance wanted to go swimming It was 1030 at the time so he had a half an hour to swim still and a few minutes after 11 and the person from the front desk rudely popped their head in the door and said pool is closed and remained to stand their outside the pool door closest to the bar area watching my fiance swim around for about 10 more minutes until i could get his tipsy self out of the pool where he was having a good time enjoying the water Its not hard to be a nice person regardless of the situation Hotel though no complaints just the people at your front desk

Jonathan Welter

I’ve stayed at this location on one occasion The room was clean, but the tub in the bathroom was aged and had some rusting I’m a travel nurse working nights and when trying to book a second time the staff at this location requested I pay for 3 nights even though I’d only be sleeping during the day for 2 days

I’ve been doing this awhile and this is not standard practice Generally hotels will accommodate and only charge for 2 nights even though it’s a slight inconvenience with the check-in/check out time I’m extremely disappointed with AmericInn and don’t plan on using them in the future

Angela Davis

Booked king premier suiteA/C went out The Front desk clerk said we could switch rooms then demanded a second credit card and entirely new booking

We didnt get into a new room until 2 pm the following day The jacuzzi in the 2nd room was nasty There was a build up of dirt and loose strands of hair not worth the price or the headacheHUGE DISAPPOINTMENT I do not plan to book with them in the future

Rooms could use some actual cleaning ! Had to switch roomsBut it’d always a good time when we go just everything is priced way to high! A pack of smokes the lady charged us $18!!! That’s crazy it’s even crazier we paid itIf looking for place to stay look somewhere else if looking to gamble and have good time would recommend

Hailey Kimball

I was a little unimpressed with my stay The checkin lady was very nice but once I got to the bedroom, it definitely was not what I expected There were black scratch marks on the walls and chips in the furniture

The bed was super uncomfortable The CD player/clock was gross looking The only thing nice about it was the bathroom but that wasn’t anything special either especially for the price There were hairs on the walls of the shower so it obviously wasn’t cleaned very well I’ve definitely been to way nicer hotels for half the price plus free breakfast Don’t recommend staying here

Check in and check out was perfect However, our room had condom wrappers in trash can upon arrival Our bathroom toilet didn’t flush at times, and shower wouldn’t drain the entire stay (3 days)

We spoke to front desk about the issues, they were every kind and said it would be fixed Unfortunately later that night, it wasn’t Staff at bar in casino and restaurant weren’t very friendly at times Restaurant food was very good! Pool and hot tub were amazing, arcade was fun However, we will not be back
