This hotel was perfect for us. Comfortable and within easy walking distance of several attractions. The hotel staff were especially friendly. Terry recommended the Homestead Village which we had never heard of and it was lovely with a great cafe. Would definitely stay here again if we were in Waco.

Cameron Park a couple miles west is beautiful along the Brazos River. The staff was very friendly (except for grumpy young man who worked some nights). Breakfast buffet... More

We spent the night at the Residence Inn and had a very nice experience. The room was super clean and the staff was very friendly. The room was quiet and they had a nice breakfast. The hotel is conveniently located to Baylor University and lots of shopping opportunities,

We didn't intend to stay here but got bumped out of our convention's hotel, and felt like we won the lottery. Only 1/2 mile from the convention center (barely) and our kitchen/living room was the size of the room we "didn't get". Every staff person we met spoke and made us feel at home. Add a little cheese to those... More

Nice hotel, helpful and polite staff. Downtown Waco. Walking distance to restaurants, Dr. Pepper Museum, near Indian Spring Park, the Brazos River/Trails, and historic suspension bridge. Hotel has free parking, indoor pool, onsite snack bar. Surroundings were quiet except for the occasional rumble of the train which was actually quite nice to hear.

This is a clean, well kept hotel with larger rooms and a great staff. It is very convenient to the Baylor campus. The breakfast bar is pretty good as far as free hotel breakfast bars go.
