The General Manager has gone out of his way to make my long term stay here as comfortable as possible and his staff are some of the nicest I have encounter in my travels. If you should ever be in Waterlloo IA and need a place to stay I highly recommend this Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by One Night - - - Too Many Yes, we have bananas - but nothing else!
Don't advertise that you have a pool and a fitness room in your hotel if you don't expect/want people to actually use them! Hint: People cannot use things that are disgustingly dirty, smelly and/or broken.
Catering to road crews with free beer during the week from 5-7 is a good strategy if: 1) you don't want any other guests; 2) you want some of them taking the beer in their coolers out to the parking lot and drinking until all hours of the night. They may harass your female guests; get lost when they finally roll into bed in the wee hours of the morning and and try to get into other guests rooms. Maybe that's a party in Waterloo.
Stale bagels, rock hard sausage and cinnamon rolls from the Kwick trip - good plan - maybe your guests can throw those at the road crew workers - just be sure and tell them to stock up in the morning for the next night. Now that would be a service.
The good things? The bananas were edible and the lady who stocked the breakfast bar seemed very nice.
