My impression is that K-W does not have a great choice of hotel accommodation available. We chose Destination Inn because it seemed to be the best of the lot. It exceeded expectations: very quiet, clean, excellent breakfast, very good pool, friendly and efficient staff. The room has all the amenities one could want.
We spent five nights here during a conference and it served us well. The hotel is about 3 km from WLU, a little far to walk regularly, and that walk would be alongside a major thoroughfare of four lanes. Though the situation of the hotel is convenient (for cars) at a major intersection, and across from a major mall, the location is not particularly scenic, characterized by suburban box stores, mall chains, busy roads, and some open fields.
Probably would stay here again, unless something better appears.
The "conference rate" of $139 seemed a tad high, but including breakfast softens that a bit.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "traditional wing"on the second floor. Liked the fact that we could park...

The Destination Inn does not look impressive from outside. It is basically a one story motel. The front desk staff were very welcoming and efficient.
The room has all the amenities one needs: a microwave, fridge, coffee maker, a full length mirror, flat screen Tv, iron and board and free wireless internet and local calls. The room with two Queen beds was clean and attractive but not very large and the view of a fence out back was not the greatest.

The small swimming pool and hot tub were found in the basement with elevator access. The continental breakfast offered cereals, fruit, yogurt, waffles, fresh juice, milk, and good coffee.

We will choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: Yo may choose between the fence at the back or the parking lot at the front.

We stayed here the Friday night onEaster weekend so that we could get to St Jacobs market on Saturday. We did not have reservations and we chose it because it had a pool. We really, really liked it. Pool was great and our room was great. Very quiet on the ground floor and the free breakfast could not be beat. A good price for the low season.

Room Tip: Be nice to the front desk staff and they will give you a good room. Politeness and courtesy will go...

Me and my son met my girlfriend and her children here on the weekend. Very nice place, comfy, and perfect for larger families as the room was quite spacious and the price, $140, was terrific for five people. Located within minutes of St. Jacob's Farmers' Market, and right across the street from a nice-sized mall.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The first two went really well. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly the breakfast was good and the pool was nice. It was in an awesome location. A $10 taxi ride from our friends place and right across the road from a major mall. On the second night, we came back late and shortly after our bathroom light blew. We were about to head to bed so we would tell the cleaning ladies in the morning about it. The next day before we left I let a cleaning lady that our bathroom light had blown and she said she would let the right person know. We came back that night to find that our room looked as if it hadn't been touched by the maid service. Our bed wasn't made, the garbage was still in the washroom and the light in the bathroom hadn't even fixed. My fiancé went down to the front desk to ask why our room hadnt been cleaned and he was told that our sign was flipped to DND ( I had flippe it to maid service that morning and was still facing the same way when we returned). As he was downstairs talking to the front desk I realized that someone had taken our main garbage, but hadnt replaced the bag and had taken out towels out of the tub but had not replaced them. So when my fiancé came back to tell me what the front desk had said I let him know what had been taken out. The lady from the front desk came up shortly after to let us know she couldn't find a bulb but would let us switch rooms, she gave us a key and we told her it was late and we werent going to end up moving (it was our last night there) but thanked her for the offer. The next morning we were woken up by the slamming of our room door at 7:50. It scared the crap out of me and woke my fiancé up. We couldn't get to back to sleep so we decided to get dressed and go down to breakfast and then talk to the front desk to ask what that was all about. The front desk told us that they had thought we had chaned rooms hence the no knocking. I work in a motel and know that all this was just cause of lack of communication so I wasn't terribly upset by it but my fiancé wasn't pleased. To sum all this up when we checked out we were told our next stay would include a free night, which makes up all of it for me. I was very pleased.

Friendly, efficient service at the front desk. This facility has a swimming pool and lobby computer although we did not use it. I went with my daughter to attend a meeting at University of Waterloo. The hotel is less than 10 minutes from the university. Conestoga Mall and other various shops and restaurants are directly across the street. There are three gas stations within 3 blocks on King St. The rooms are a good size and we had two queen beds. I found the room a little cool however putting the thermostat higher than normal rectified that in the am. There is a continental breakfast with boiled eggs, muffins, bagels, waffles, cereal etc. I recommend going out for coffee. There are complimentary news papers in the lobby. The hotel is clean and all staff was friendly.

Room Tip: We had an end unit, close to door and very sunny.
