I stayed here for one night for a work trip, and was very pleased with my stay. The staff were very friendly and had me checked in within minutes ans to my room. The studio suite that I stayed in was large and had plenty of room to relax including a small living area, work space, kitchen, and large bedroom.... More

We had a great stay the past 3 days. Clean spacious rooms, good location, wonderful breakfast that staff kept fresh-looking and refilled until closing time. Probably the highlight for us was the friendliness of each and every staff member!! They made you feel welcome. We enjoyed the Waco Farmer's Market down the road on Saturday morning. Great restaurant options very... More

Overall, a really great place to stay. Very clean. Easy to get to/centrally located in Waco. Friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast included. Very spacious rooms -- I've been on a lot of business trips, and honestly I don't think I've ever had such a large and comfortable work desk in a hotel room. Reasonably priced. Excellent facilities to include... More

Very clean. Very friendly staff. We received an upgrade to a 2 bedroom suite and it was very spacious. Large free breakfast buffet with hot and cold options was nice. We didn't stay long enough to enjoy the pool or the fitness room. I recommend staying here if in Waco.

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
