My husband and I stayed 4-nights at this property in January. Our adult children hosted a 40th anniversary party for us in Waco, and this was the host hotel we chose for our family and friends. Dinah Mills was my contact in arranging rooms, and she was wonderful! Bless her heart, I know I drove her crazy with all our... More

My husband and I arrived early in the afternoon and were granted immediate check-in. The lobby smells wonderful, is very clean and well designed and the staff is very friendly. The overall layout of the hotel is very nice and despite being close to the elevators we were not disturbed at all during our stay. We had a queen suite.... More

Residence Inn has it figured out. From a friendly and competent check-in until we ate a very good complimentary breakfast and departed, the experience was totally enjoyable. The rooms are smartly laid out and feel so comfortable with all of the latest amenities. The "four star" hotels in the world could take a few lessons. I highly recommend.

This is a good property to stay at, while visiting Waco. I must say I have lodged at Marriott properties in the past and I think Residence Inns are the best properties for the chain, in my opinion. It is like Homewood Suites to Hilton but I of course I have yet to stay at the more lavish properties for... More

This is in a good location and within walking distance to several eateries. Nice grounds with great sitting area outside. Property is a little older but well maintained. I have about 60-80 hotel nights a year and as a rule I avoid older properties, but this one I would stay at again. Great staff, friendly and courteous. Good breakfast with... More

In town to visit family at Baylor University. All the staff go out of there way to be friendly and helpful. Hotel went under a re-do about two years ago. All rooms are very spacious, quiet and accommodating. Excellent Breakfast Bar in the mornings. Extremely close for all Baylor activities.

I've stayed in a few hotels in Waco and love this hotel. Great breakfast. Everyone was super friendly. The room was perfectly laid out with a King bed, a sitting area...also had a kitchen with cooktop full size refrigerator and a dishwasher. The hotel is just off the Baylor property and conveniently located to 35. There is a 7-11 less... More

We stopped in Waco to split our trip home in half. This was a good place to stay!! Location is near Baylor and within walking distance to bars and restaurants. The woman that greeted us at the reception when we arrived was friendly and we enjoyed talking with her. The room was spacious with a great sectional couch. Comfy bed.... More

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.
