Property was clean, staff was very nice. I have stayed there before and I chose this location because of the breakfast and how close it was to where I needed to be. I was disappointed when I found out the breakfast was limited to grab and go type foods because of COVID since other restaurants are now open but I understand the safety concerns. Need more coffee in the rooms and the pancake machine took a long time to get refilled when it ran out of batter. I would stay there again but I will check to see if they are serving a hot breakfast.

Staff seemed preoccupied or perhaps the hotel was understaffed. The room was clean but the hallway by the elevator had a strong odor, similar to cat urine.

Thank you for your feedback. Our hotel does not allow pets. After looking into this we discovered that the odor was coming from a drain to which we had fixed. We did appreciate you letting the front desk know so we could have it taken care right away. Hope to see you back next time you are in the area.

There are probably better places to stay for the money

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
I selected this hotel because it was the only one listed as a 3-star hotel in CF and was I willing to pay a little extra for it. If I had it to do over again, I would have booked a 2-star hotel in CF and saved the money because I'm sure it would have been a comparable experience. Mostly, it was very average, but there were a couple of negatives. The staff is not very adept at customer service and had a little difficulty communicating that my room was not yet ready, even though I arrived an hour after check-in time. I had errands to run, so it was not a major inconvenience, but the staff handled it awkwardly. The manager did inform me that they were running a little behind and that they would send someone to prepare my room immediately. When I arrived back at the hotel after running my errands, the room was clean, except for the soap from a previous guest which was left in the shower. Also, the staff could have warned me that they were re-doing the wallpaper on my floor, so the signage had been removed from the walls and room numbers were sitting on the floor next to each door. With my arms full of luggage, it took me a couple of moments to figure out which room was mine. I saw another family confused by the same problem. I was shocked by the amount of road noise in my room. The noise was so prominent, I thought they had opened a window to let fresh air in, but when I checked, the windows were closed. The hotel is next to a highway, but not so close that I would have expected that level of noise. This is the reason I graded the room as "fair" rather than average. The room does have a refrigerator and microwave, which I always appreciate.

This hotel is in great shape, new and nice appearance

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The Wingate by Wyndham in Cedar Falls is a great place for a family to stay. The facility is new and in great condition. Appealing and welcoming by it's appearance and overall features. The room was spacious and clean, well decorated and comfortable. The breakfast is included and is both convenient and tasty! Our family would stay there again when in town.

Great place, terrible service

Had a great time, hotel was perfect. Do not let them swipe any card at check in for "incidentals" if you book the room through travel agencies... they charged me for the full amount of the room on top of what I prepaid through the travel agency. Now I have a * dollar charge for a room I paid for two weeks previous. The front desk is telling me that they haven't taken any money, and it is the travel agency that is taking the money, and I know that just isn't so. Me and my kids love the indoor pool and the room was great, the building was sturdy and rooms were so well insulated that I had no idea there were other guest there! The breakfast was decent, and worth it not to have to go out and spend money on eating out. Overall the hotel is wonderful, but now I have a headache over money I don't have for them to be taking off my bankcard. I would stay here again if booked through the travel agency, but will not let them have anything for "incidentals"
