1.0 Poor
Pros: I had 2 reservations so I am reviewing this awful place twice. We checked in and left after our teenagers were gawked at, saw people rolling blunts and smelling the musty/smoky rooms. Run down and not as pictured. Do NOT stay here with children.
Cons: Everything was awful. We left shortly after checking in. Manager offered carpet fresh and said she would re vacuum. Then said if she were us that she would leave too because there were bad people there. She said sorry people smoked in the rooms.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was minimal. It appears that this hotel is intended for busy/rushed executives, not travellers.
Cons: Location is disastrous. Took us over 30 minutes to find it, and that was after we asked for details at a store. The staff member knew nothing about the neighborhood, city or restaurants (except the one in front of it - no choice!) Please add the Exit # on the local highway to help visitors. We won't go back again, although the part of Waterloo that we saw was worth going back to,....but not a hotel in the sticks where no one can find it.
4.5 Okay
Pros: Even for a budget hotel, the breakfast at this facility was marginal, at best.
Cons: The room felt damp and humid; it was not comfortable, even with air conditioner unit running. Could not recommend this facility, even though it rented for a budget price.
8.3 Excellent

Cons: Nothing!
6.8 Good
Pros: Motel seemed clean. Desk staff friendly and seemingly helpful. The location with the Hwy.63 Diner in the same parking lot was great, I've heard about the Hwy.63 diner for years and highly recommend it as a place to eat.
Cons: The smoke detector in my room was not operating correctly, it constantly chirped as if the battery needed changed. I called the Front Desk and notified them of the problem. An hour later I went to the Front Desk and the clerk told me she didn't know where the replacement batteries were kept, and the hotel owners have not responded to her phone call. We removed the old battery, and that seemed to fix the problem. However, at 5am I was woken by the smoke detector chirping again. I told the new Front Desk Clerk about it, still nothing was done. At 3am Sunday morning it went off again, waking me up. Again, front desk was notified, and nothing was done, still no response from the hotel owners. I talked to one of the owners/manager this morning, and only offered me a 10% refund in compensation. The comfort and safety of their guests doesn't seem to be a high priority.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was quiet and clean and I felt very safe since I was traveling alone. The breakfast was great and the lady who worked the desk the evening I checked in was very friendly! And the fresh cookies and popcorn at the desk was an added treat!
Cons: The day staff the next morning watched me as I struggled to get the luggage cart out the door. I finally had to ask one of them to help me with the door. When I brought the cart back in they all looked at me and never offered to put it back for me. I just thought that would've been nice since 2 of the 3 were simply standing looking at me.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Very close to the venue we were going to.
Cons: Room smelled musty like wet carpet. Pile of dirt in the corner by the hot tub
9.3 Excellent

2.0 Mediocre
Pros: Bed was good, location was great.
Cons: Staff was terrible. While eating breakfast, the woman at the front desk was YELLING at someone on speaker phone. It wasn't in English so I don't know what it was about, but it went on for our entire meal and I had to interrupt to check out.

Pros: The property was inviting and smelled nice upon entering the building. Front desk clerk was cheerful & helpful w/ food and activity suggestions.
Cons: The room was really disappointing for what we were charged!! Our window view consisted of heating/cooling units that ran and kept us awake! When I asked for a fan to try to drown out the noise they told me there were ceiling fans...use that! Well, the fan had NO pull string to even change it! Our bed was so HARD and only had 3 pillows for a king! Plus, the bed linens were so cheap & thin!

8.8 Excellent
Cons: The staff made me wait to check in for about 20 minutes as he was on the phone answering phone call after phone call. He could have let it go to voicemail and check me in. Instead, he said to just wait. I took a seat but then after a while, he was not checking me in so I went up to the counter and he finally stopped answering the phone to check me in.

Overview Reviews
Motel 6 Waterloo is located within 5 miles of Young Arena & McElroy Auditorium. Within 10 miles of Lost Island Waterpark & Isle Casino. Our amenities include indoor heated pool, Free Wi-Fi, and a coin laundry facility. Modern rooms.
4.3 Okay
Pros: Bathroom was large and sufficiently clean; minimal supplies but was enough for quick overnight.
Cons: This was the worst motel/hotel in which I have ever spent a night! I didn't want to enter when I saw the place from the outside due to the people on the motel's property. I didn't feel safe. The guests(?) outside the motel seemed disreputable -- for example, one car remained parked for over an hour with driver smoking inside the car; during the hour that I watched (still in my car debating whether I should stay), I watched this scenario: 2 persons behind me in parking lot talking and staring directly at me, driver smokes, passenger-side person leaves car and enters motel; driver continues to smoke alone in car, a different guest from inside motel enters the car, talks with smoking driver, passenger-side person leaves the car after a few minutes; a different person from within the motel enters the car, etc. This went on for several cycles with different adult persons entering and leaving the car. I had driven inter-state all day and I did not want to lose my advance reservation charge so I went into the motel without even taking my supplies from the car trunk -- just wanted to get inside my room asap. My room looked like a mini gymnasium (large room with brown wood floor) in which someone had plopped a bed which looked out of place in the mostly bare room. Another hour passed, and the car with the revolving passenger-seat companions was no longer in the motel's only parking lot. In the morning, I left after a quick bath never having brought my bag with a change of clothes and food into the room. My previous night's plans of eating at the nearby Chinese restaurant, walking to the nearby Hy-Vee store & relaxing having been squelched, good riddance, I was glad to be on my way out of town. P.S. McDonalds across the street and down the road a bit, more of a distraction to the peace rather than an asset for the motel.

Cons: The carpet felt dirty. There were issues with the electricity in the room not working properly.
4.3 Okay
Pros: Location was ok. Everything else? I wouldn"t stay there if it was free.
Cons: Cleanliness of the room. Continental break fast had yogurt and two hard boiled eggs. No juice that worked and no waffle mix. The toilet had a water ring in it meaning not cleaned for a while. TV remote didn't work, Check in took for ever because of people checking right back out because of no water in some rooms. One couple told us the room 123 had water their other 2 rooms didn't. We asked for that room but was told no. Room 307 was given to us. Door was open when we arrived. The room had not been cleaned from previous guest. So had to wait another 20 minutes at the front desk to get room 123. No wash or hand towels and shampoo and soap. Another trip to the front desk. Then listening to the maintenance guys 4 doors down cutting on drywall and banging until 10:30 pm.
5.5 Okay
Cons: Charged us 60.00 more then what booking.com told us it was going to be. Staff did not help at all and did not know anything. The breakfast had make your own waffles and that was it they were out of cereal and orange juice.
4.3 Okay
Pros: The breakfast was not good at all. The raisins were really hard in the raisin bran cereal which was an indication that it was old cereal. We had to ask for milk. The orange juice was out. No pastries at all . . . just bread! I would give the breakfast a 1 star or less.
Cons: This hotel was definitely not worth the price we paid!! Definitely overpriced for the quality. The floors were not clean. There was a used match on the bathroom floor. . . and we actually had a smoke-free room! The overstuffed chair was very worn and old looking. Did not feel like the room was clean at all.

Overview Reviews
Motel 6 Crossroads Mall-Waterloo-Cedar Falls has indoor heated pool open year around (9am-10pm), with fridges in all modern rooms. Come out in relax and enjoy Free Wifi throughout the building.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is right off the freeway; close to restaurants, big box stores and a 5-10 minute drive to downtown Waterloo. There is a CVS just down the road so you can get your travel size toiletries if you forgot something, as the rooms do not have complimentary shampoo (there is soap). The actual space of the room is huge (one king bed) because of the lack of furniture in it. They also left the light on for me.
Cons: I know with a Motel 6 one should not expect anything super fancy, but there was no comfortable seating provided. You had the worn rolling desk chair on a hardwood-esque floor and a wood-backed stacking chair. The firm king size bed with three pillows was an acceptable substitute. One of the staff appeared more content being outside having a personal phone conversation and smoking cigarettes than working.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice front desk clerk. Very clean and comfortable.
Cons: We had 2 dogs down the hall from us and they barked until after 11:30pm.We were so tired from our drive and then couldn't get to sleep. The office said they couldn't reach them. Terrible night!!! We left a message for the owner to call us but we've not heard from them.

Bathtub hadn't been cleaned in quite a while, missing lens over light in bathroom, finger prints, food and snot on the walls, freezer in fridge needed de-icing, mgmt. wasn't pleasant at all! Never would stay at this Motel 6 ever again! Can't believe they still carry the Motel 6 Logo out front either! Hallway walls were dirty. Back door where security lock is suppose to be by using you key-room card was taped over so ANYONE could enter from the outside into the motel!

6.3 Good
Cons: Rated as a 3 star when it was a 2 star facility.
6.8 Good
Pros: The bed was comfortable, though I should have asked for another pillow. The pool was great.
Cons: The most unsettling thing was the very bright light that went on and off outside our window all night long. It made it difficult to sleep. The morning desk person also did absolutely nothing when I put the key on the counter and told her we were checking out other than stare at me: no greeting, no getting up off her chair, no smile, no asking my room number. Not the best last impression to make. Luckily, this is not the first time we have stayed here, so it wasn't my only impression.
