Seemed that management wasn’t present to address loud people in the halls in the middle of the night while other guests were sleeping. Children were allowed to run all over the hotel making all kinds of racket.

I really enjoyed my stay! My room was quiet, cool, and very neat & clean. The lady behind the desk was cheerful and attentive. The included breakfast was good, and I noticed they made every effort to ensure that everything -- coffee, yogurt, etc. -- remained available. I would definitely recommend this motel!

Smelled like cheap cologne all thru the Halls. Old

Staff nice. Ran out of coffee. Carpet in room felt damp. Smelled awful. Needs updating.

Adequate no more or less.

Pros: Reasonable price
Cons: TV was a flat screen but Image was strictly standard definition, Room refrigerator was noisy. HVAC was one of those heat pump units never shuts off.
Location: Location off Highway 63 in South Waterloo. 10 to 12 minutes to University Ave, Crossroads, Nothing in walking distance but the 63 Diner
Not sure why I picked this other than price. It was clean but noisy. The refrigerator and air/heat unit in the wall where noisy. The pool area needed a little dressing up but it was clean and functional. The room was much the same. Nothing too special, good or bad. Its off the beaten path and a little drive to any fast food restaurants. The 63 diner next door was good.
