Hotel was clean, comfortable and nice atmosphere. Staff friendly and efficient. This hotel can easily be a five star hotel if they provided ample parking. Was not happy to find that other cars can park in the hotel parking lot and that we had to park somewhere else. Noticed a gentleman with a large suitcase walking a distance to get to the hotel. Planned to return next month but have decided not worth the agrevation. Several good hotels Waterloo with ample parking

The Waterloo Hotel is a quaint, historic hotel located in the Up Town area of Waterloo. Tons of character, good parking, easy access and close to the universities. The front desk staff were absolutely amazing. Friendly, informative, everything that you want from the front desk. No elevator so if you can't do stairs, you should probably pass on it. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The street in front is a nightlife street so it can be a little on the noisy side until about 11pm. The breakfast voucher for 1 of 3 local cafés was a great touch.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness

The discounted rate was not honored. The rate was offered as $125.38 per night, but $165 was charged; I got 3 bug-bites on the face and 1 bug-bite on a hand after sleeps; the air condition was very noisy; the shower did not work well; and there is no fan in the bathroom.
