Motel 6 Crossroads Mall-Waterloo-Cedar Falls
Ranked #11 of 16 Hotels in Waterloo
Reviewed 2 November 2016

Two of us were on a motorcycle trip and were looking for a place to lay our heads down that was cheap, clean and within walking distance to a place to eat. After a long day on the motorcycles, we did not want to drive to dinner.

We found the hotel was clean, the pool refreshing and the room comfortable. This is not a 5 star but your average 3 star with some evident wear and tear. It was what we were looking for and served our purpose. NO bed bugs or other scary critters.

It was a short walk to a variety of restaurants at the end of the street and a shopping mall virtually across the street. Be aware there are no sidewalks alongside the street so you do have to be careful walking.

Check out was quick and that too was also appreciated.

Decent place. Staff was friendly enough. Backdoor to motel is broken. That was the only external issue. Didn't try the pool or coffee. Room itself was ok but they really need to improve the quality of their beds and pillows. They were terrible and it was hard to get to sleep. Of course i know i shouldn't be surprised at that, it is a major problem at almost every motel 6 (especially the pillows) I know it's not the marriott, but i think motel 6 can do a little better. i would give this particular one a 3 except for that issue. Not sure i would stay here again if i needed to.

Friendly staff and the rooms have been updated nicely. Backdoor was broken so anyone could get in and there is no breakfast at this location. Also, no amenities in the rooms (coffee maker, shampoos or conditioner). Just a thought for those who like those things. Plus side...there was a fridge. Those are great to have!

Simple hotel, inside corridors, the rear door slams as people go in and out and doesn't require a key, had a nice looking pool, we didn't use but saw others enjoying it, no hot tub, had several handicap accessible rooms, even # overlook parking lot and odds overlook residential area. We paid $61 plus tax so $69. Rooms have wood floors so no nasty carpet, great place to lay your head for a decent price, we would stay again. The only thing was I wish they were part of a points program. No breakfast only coffee. Could also use some furniture updated but the bed was fine and clean. We had a comfortable king bed, 3 pillows, 2 towels, 2 wash clothes and 2 hand towels, very basic. The toilet and shower was in one room together on the right and the sink was as you entered on the left, we had room 137.

Very nice. I've stayed here twice in a month. All the rooms are newly renovated and very nice. Great location right across from the mall, near the water park and restaurants. Plus...they accept pets!! No charge. Very friendly staff too. Good value for the price compared to others nearby.
