We stayed 2 nights at this Hotel, it was very clean and updated to 70's style, the wood and brick dates it, but well worth visiting Swansea. The Restaurant staff were very pleasant and welcoming and the food was good.

As per most of the other reviews, the Waterloo Inn needs a spruce up...but for a one night stay was ok. Would have been lovely on a warm summers night to sit out on the balcony with a beer listening to the waves.

We enjoyed our stay here, the room was clean, bed comfy and we enjoyed the view. Free laundry and wi-fi which was a bit slow at peak times. Easy parking and an ideal stopover if your touring the east coast.

Solid, well appointed accommodation. Central location but just far enough from the highway. Great views, beside golf course and right on the beach. Free laundry and the Wi-fi really was free to all rooms, no limit and fast . Will happily stay here again.

The 1st floor room was a little dark but sufficient and clean. The decor is little dated but OK for one night. Staff very helpful. Restaurant below had good food at fair prices. Located at end of beach but close to walk on sea side of nearby golf club.

This motel is right out of 1960. Dated brick walls, dark interior, tacky plastic chairs, and a general bit kf a run diwn look. On the other side, new beds, carpet and quite clean. Just remember you stay here because it is oceanfront! You look at the beach and ocean.

Our room was clean and presentable, even though slightly dated. However, while staying there, renovations were being performed on other rooms. Easy walking distance to some food options. Clean, simple, old school.

The location of Waterloo Inn is great! The rooms were dated! Part of the ceiling looked like it is going to fall off! It seriously needs to be refurbished and made more appealing to visitors. The staff were friendly though. The location was fantastic. We took a stroll along the beach and we enjoyed the long relaxing walk. The town... More

We got this motel as part of a package deal, it is very old and in our room the ceiling was a bit ordinary, as well as bathroom needed work. The owner needs to put in king or queen size beds and do some serious work on the place. It has AMAZING views but its age, datedness really let it... More
