    « Great customer service & went above and beyond »

    I had left some clothes hanging in the closet of my hotel room and I called back to the hotel as soon as I remembered. I spoke to Lauren S. from the front desk and she verified the clothes has been left behind. She was going to be coming near my hometown the next day and offered to bring them to the Best Western Plus in that town so I could pick up. What a lifesaver. So thankful that Courtney S. and Lauren G. brought my clothes to me which saved me shipping money or having to drive back 2 hours and get them. They went above and beyond with their customer service! I add, the hotel staff the whole time we were there were great including the manager, Cory!

    « We Give It 4 1/2 Star Rating »

    We were satisfied with everything, except the hot tub had been removed. We were looking forward to using it!!! ( website listed a hot tub) The room was large enough, bed comfortable, nice bathroom, and separate area for makeup outside of the bathroom. Breakfast was ok, not great - but adequate.

    I'm so impressed with the staff and the hotel itself. All of the staff is wonderful and very in tune with what guests need. Shelly my check in lady was amazing and very accommodating. And Larissa in housekeeping was just sweet as could be. I will definitely be staying again. Thank you for making this work stay amazing.

    « Just passing through »

    My husband and I were just passing through the area and we stopped for a night at this amazing hotel! The desk girl Courtney was amazing! She answered all our questions, gave us directions to a nice restaurant downtown. The hotel was clean, and offered a great cup of coffee the next morning.

    « Excellent hotel and staff »

    This is my 'go to' hotel in the area, just an excellent value. Very modern, clean, and quiet hotel. Great staff, Sherry and Courtney have been wonderful to take care of any needs. Breakfast selection is ok, however the breakfast area is very comfortable. I very much recommend this hotel and their staff.

    « Nicest room ever »

    This is probably one of the nicest rooms I've ever stayed in. We had a king suite with fireplace. The living room was extra large with a whirlpool tub near the door. Separate bedroom had a bathroom with tub/shower. There was a fridge, microwave, and sink. Indoor swimming pool, although we didn't have time to use it. Nicely decorated. Breakfast was average.

    « Good Best Western! »

    This was our first stop on our 2 week trip across Iowa and the Dakotas. The hotel was clean, the staff were friendly and the beds were comfortable with lots of nice pillows. The breakfast area was clean and well stocked with a good variety of hot and cold options. I would have given it a "5" but the tub was slow to drain so it filled with dirty water as we showered. We only stayed one night, so there really wasn't an opportunity to get that addressed during our stay. We did mention it at check-out and were assured maintenance would take care of the issue ASAP. This is a newly remodeled hotel (we actually thought it was new) and a good place to stay. If we are back in the area, we will certainly stay here again and I recommend you give it a try as well!

    « Homecoming Stay »

    In general, a satisfying stay with accommodating staff. Very nice property. Location is convenient to UNI. When issues were shared with staff, they were quick to address the problem. We had a King suite, so very roomy. Breakfast menu was OK, but nothing special. Carpeted floors were not thoroughly vacuumed (bobby pins & hair on carpet), but tile floors clean & shiny. Our only issue was that we changed room assignments when the TV didn't work in originally assigned room. No big deal until the 2nd night when the desk clerk and newly arriving guests tried to enter our room around 1 AM. Apparently, the room change didn't get entered in their computer so she didn't realize that the room was occupied, but the "Do Not Disturb" sign, should have been a hint. Difficult to get a good night's rest after that event. Otherwise, it was a great stay. Would stay here again, but if room changes, confirm that it gets in the computer & engage the safety lock on the door.

    « Comfortable and Clean »

    I stayed for 2 nights at the Best Western Plus. One of the reasons I chose it is that it's a straight shot between the hotel and the UNI campus. Also, it's just a short drive away from a good-sized shopping center with the usual fast good options, a big Target, etc. The only issue I had was with a slow-draining and smelly sink. I asked them to fix it. They do seem to have attended to it, but it was still a little slow when I left.

    « Nice hotel, bit overpriced for isolated location »

    Nice Best Western with comfortable rooms, luxurious soft king bed, nice pool, and fitness center. However, it doesn't have a restaurant/bar and it's located near business/technology park buildings but no restaurants/nightlife, so there's absolutely nothing to do within walking distance. Bit overpriced for that.

    « Smart hotel »

    This hotel is very modern and reception staff very friendly. The hotel is located in a peaceful area which makes for a good nights sleep - very quiet at night. Not much around it so you really need a car to go for dinner or a shop etc but makes for a nice place to wind down after a hard day at work.

    « Customer service was Great!!!! Thanks Sherry!!!!! »

    « Great Hotel, Great Value »

    This hotel surprised us. The rate was $114 for a king size bed. The room was so nicely decorated and the bed was super comfortable. This hotel is so clean and updated and is really a great value. The staff is very motivated as they have a stake in the hotel. Breakfast is included which surprised us again. I would definitely stay in this hotel again. They also have a pool and workout facilities.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    We stayed this past weekend as part of a large family wedding. The staff was amazing! They were helpful and friendly. No matter what question or request we through their way they were right there to help out. With a large family there are of course a lot of children, and they welcomed them as well with patients and understanding. The whole facility is modern, and clean. The location was very easy to get to. I wish all hotel stays could be as great as this one was.

    « Great place to stay in Cedar Falls »

    We stayed at the Best Western Plus Technology Park Inn & Suites when we were in Cedar Falls for a wedding this past weekend. The front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. My husband and I are fairly light sleepers, and we both remarked the next morning that we didn't hear one bit of noise from traffic or other guests. The bed was very comfortable, with plenty of pillows. The breakfast area was nice and clean, and the food was good. We have absolutely no complaints and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

    « Excellent arrangement »

    Your hotel was perfect for us. It is very clean with quality furnishings. We could walk to the wedding at the Center next door. The staff were helpful and gracious. We felt blessed to have Sam and Corey helping us during our two day stay.

    « A pleasant place to spend the night »

    We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The bed was so comfortable and the pillows were great. The rooms have been updated and refreshed and the staff were very pleasant. We chatted with the night manager who was friendly and helpful too. If we return to Cedar Falls to visit our grandson again in the future, we definitely will stay at this hotel. In fact, we had stayed there previously while visiting our granddaughters before it changed hands.

    « newly renovated, amazingly wonderful »

    This motel is the best kept secret of Cedar Falls. The decor is modern and bright and inviting. Rooms large, super clean, new everything, breakfast room has a wall of windows looking out into the green fields beyond and is more spacious than any I have been in. Pool room is gorgeous! Only wish we had scheduled a longer stay in Cedar Falls just to enjoy this motel! Didn't want to leave!

    « Clean, Great Price, Beautiful Hotel »

    Everyone was friendly, you walk in and notice how nice the place is. Great price for your stay. Breakfast was good. I would recommend this hotel to stay at.. Will return!! Not to fa from the interstate but it's in a quiet setting can't hear outside noise.

    « Quiet spot »

    Nice location away from hustle and bustle of town, but close enough to shopping and eats. Room was nice and bed was very comfortable. Staff were professional, and courteous. Breakfast was good and presented nicely. I came late for breakfast and they left up for me, what they hadn't taken down, when I asked it I could still get a quick bite Lobby/front desk area up to date and welcoming. Well done BW! I highly recommend staying here.

    « Comfort »

    Very nice staff, bed was very comfortable. Pillows could be upgraded. Odor in room was coming from a/c - heat. Maybe could use a good cleaning. Smelled as tho dogs had been staying in the room at one time. I didn't ask for another room as I liked the room I was in. Back side, little noise.

    « Great price for a new, clean, friendly hotel »

    This hotel is conveniently located off of the highway. It is easily accessible to both cedar falls and waterloo. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is new and very clean. Breakfast is standard - cold and hot options - nothing fantastic but definitely better than others.

    « Best Western PLUS Cedar Falls, great place to stay! »

    i would highly recommend this hotel. The staff is friendly and the check in was prompt and efficient. The hotel has been recently renovated and the facilities are very clean and comfortable. i would highly recommend this hotel for business or for family gatherings. The suite rooms are very large. Also, nice to have a refrigerator in room without extra cost. Will definitely stay here on our next visit to Cedar Falls, IA

    « Fantastic Shinny New Facility »

    This hotel if not brand new certainly looks it! Very nice all around. The pool is really nice and fitness center has all you need. The rooms are furnished tastefully and functionally. The staff was perfect all around. Friendly place near all the business. A quick drive to a places to eat.

    « Always a Plus at Best Western Plus »

    Newly remodeled with convenient location to Cedar Falls for UNI events. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Definitely will book with this hotel again. Nice bike and walking trails nearby. Breakfast had a nice variety for a "hot and cold" breakfast. We enjoyed our stay here and the beds were very comfortable. Didn't use the pool or Fitness center this time...but would have liked to have access to a hot tub which was not an option. Overall a very nice, new addition to Best Western Plus hotels.

    « Great hotel »

    The hotel is close to UNI campus. Beautiful area, building, and rooms. Comfortable, affordable, and easy to navigate through the building. Good breakfast. Nice pool for the kids to play in. Small gym, but good for my workout. Lovely meeting area for breakfast or other times during the day - especially if there with a group. I'd stay here again!

    « Just a quicky »

    Needed a place in Waterloo, this is the only Best Western, but it is a good one. Seemed just a bit overpriced for the location, but I needed one more stay for a promotion. Very nice staff, beautify rooms. Very average breakfast, and the location, while next to the Technology/Industrial park is quite some distance from any choice of restaurants.

    5
    « Great location »

    Best Western Plus is directly across the street from the Pipac Event Center where the wedding took place. There is a good variety for the included breakfast. The staff were very friendly and tended to our needs.

    « Easy access to US 20 on the ever developing west side »

    New owners. They're still working on the deferred maintenance that the prior owner neglected. But they are attentive to what still needs to be done. So this place seems to be trending the correct way. All in all it is a clean place. Housekeeping seems to be doing their job. It was quiet. Granted it was a "slow" week for them. But those who stay here aren't the party animals who will keep you up. And I didn't really notice other guests except when I went to the lobby area. Staff was good to work with. I had a billing issue that they worked to correct without complaint.

    « Excellence »

    I have been staying at this hotel once a month for over 18 months now and even during renovations, their service and customer care has always been excellent! The staff has always gone out of their way to make me feel welcome and know me by name. Great experience every time.

    « It was fine. »

    The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. There were no noise issues and the beds were quite comfortable. There were 2 bright lights just outside of our window though and, even with the curtains closed, our room was not very dark. Also, there is no hot tub in the pool area which was very disappointing. Breakfast was just okay.

    « A Nice Expereince »

    Stayed at this BW for business. I was impressed with all aspects of the property. Lobby was sparkling and staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were impeccable and the bed was comfortable. No noise issues. TV required a call to the front desk to get someone to fidget with the tuner to find the correct programing, otherwise a very good experience.

    « A very nice place to stay. »

    This was a clean hotel with a nice breakfast and very friendly staff. I would recommend it for a family. The pool was not huge and there is not a hot tub however the kids still had fun. It has been recently updated and has a very nice appearance.

    « Spacious family room »

    We were very pleased with the beautiful family room that could accommodate 6 guests, with two queen beds and a hide-a-bed. The location, so close to John Deere Engine works, was a plus for us, as was easy access to the freeway to get to the mall. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. In particular, the front desk clerk who was there when we checked in, was just lovely. We arrived a little earlier than anticipated and she offered us amazing cookies fresh from the oven while we were waiting for housekeeping to finish our room. There was a very nice continental breakfast served in a large, bright breakfast area adjacent to the spacious lobby. The only negative was that the indoor pool was too cold. It was so cold in the pool that only one of our kids even got into the pool and she quickly got out, which was disappointing after a long day of travelling in the car. No hot tub.

    « Great Stay! »

    This hotel had a newer appeal and was very clean. No complaints. Bed was very comfortable! We didn't stay for breakfast, but it looked like there was plenty of food and options available. We attended a wedding reception at the Pipac Event Centre and it was so convenient to be able to walk across the sidewalk to the hotel at the end of the night!

    « Stayed here while visiting family »

    We stayed at this Best Western the end of February 2016 while visiting our son. The property is very clean, almost looked new. We stayed in a suite as we used some Expedia points and it only cost $7 more per night. The morning breakfast was plentiful and eating area very nice. The receptionist was so very nice and helped us with our safe. I will definitely stay here again.

    « Excellent stay »

    It was nice to stay at a hotel that was very clean, with a hotel staff that was happy to see you stay there. Too many times it seems like someplaces could really care less if you stay with them or not. This hotel is an exception to that rule. It was nicely decorated, comfortable bed and has a good breakfast.

    « GREAT!! »

    Everything about this place is great. Location was perfect for us, a straight shot (approx 2 miles) to the UNI dome. Cleanliness was above average and Staff was extremely friendly and helpful!! all at a great price! I HIGHLY recommend this Best Western

    « Helpful Manager »

    Nicole, hotel manager very much "on-it". makes it easy to do business there. The appearance of renovated hotel is as "brand new". The Room could have been cleaned a little better on my 3 day stay; as well as adequate bath amenities.

    « This Best Western Is a Great Choice »

    You most likely will find it very convenient to UNI functions and other Cedar Falls/Waterloo activities. It is clean, neat, breakfast is tasty and the service is great. Be sure to sign up for the rewards to save a few bucks. Rooms are up to date and comfortable.

    I had stayed at the Fairfield in Waterloo and was looking for a room with a jacuzzi and the manager recommended this hotel and this hotel did not disappoint! I am used to the quality of a Marriott and this hotel is newly remodeled and is just as good as most Marriotts I stay at. Kudos to the management team!

This hotel is very conveniently located off of Hwy 20 and very close to UNI Campus. The hotel has been recently remodeled and the rooms and lobby were sparkling clean! The staff was VERY friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend staying here, and know that I will be staying here many more times when traveling to the area!

    « FRIENDLY SERVICE »

    I was traveling to the area for the holidays and was very happy with my stay. Even though I was away from home, the staff was very friendly and treated me like family. I made my reservation with Nichole and she was very accommodating to my room preferences. I will definitely be staying there again.

    « Easy access location »

    The hotel was chosen for location & easy access, minimizing local traffic which is accurate & helpful. A traffic light at the intersection of hotel's street to exit & enter a busy 4 lane road with quick access to Univ of Northern Iowa when coming off Hwy 20. Quiet. Lobby, breakfast area, hallways & king bed suite on 1st floor all sparkling clean & up to date. Hot breakfast items well stocked & area kept clean for Sat breakfast. Area not developed yet to include restaurant choices so need to drive a couple miles north & east to a mall area or to downtown. Check-in/out quick.
