Staggered in off the nearby interstate in the middle of a treacherous snowstorm. Nice indoor pool area, the usual breakfast fare, and a large, clean, quiet room with all of the expected mid-range amenities.

Stayed here on March 4, 2017. I had enough points from staying at other Holdiay Inn's for a free night. Noted poor reviews online, but didn't have much other choice for a Holiday Inn. Got to the room, TV was locked on one channel only. Went to the pool, turns out they were having a fire in the pump room....

Management response:

Keith K, I apologize you did not enjoy your stay with us. Unfortunately we did have to close our pool down for approximately 30 mins. due to an over heating boiler motor. This did NOT cause a fire, however, I made the decision to call the fire department to make sure everything was shut down properly as a precautionary measure....

We have been staying here several times a month since October whenever we come to watch our son play hockey. Shawntel, Nancy and the rest of the staff make sure we have a great visit. The hotel is clean and the breakfasts are good. This hotel is a good value in Waterloo.

The front desk personnel were exceptional from my initial inquiry through checkout. The rooms were spacious, modern, and very clean. A free breakfast was included and it was just perfect in the morning. I would surely stay here again. The night check-in person was a real sweet heart!
