This was my second long term stay here and I'm pleased to say that there was an improvement on my previous complaint about housekeeping. The rooms are adequately furnished and the beds are extremely comfortable. The front desk staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Well located for some of the local nightlife which is within walking distance. Looking forward to... More

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. We walked across the street on Saturday... More

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. I liked that they had real oatmeal instead of the instant I often find at similar hotels. The best part of this hotel however... More

We chose the Marriott Residence Inn because we thought we were going to have an additional party stay with us, but we ended up with it to ourselves. The room(s) were very nice, especially the kitchenette and the bathrooms. My wife liked that the toilet and shower were separated from the vanity. The suite was spacious. The property was well...

Four years ago, I posted a TripAdvisor review that said "We'll be back!" and we have. Residence Inn continues to be our favorite hotel in Waco, whether we're visiting relatives or attending events at Baylor University. We stayed here again on a recent family road trip and were delighted with the two-bedroom suite. I had requested a crib when I... More

The staff and managers go above and beyond! The buffet hot breakfast is superb! There is an indoor pool, grilling area, and small basketball pad. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and family! Perfect!

I have been staying at this hotel for the past month on local business. I was extremely impressed with the hotel and staff in the first few days.

We enjoyed our stay of three nights here -- the room was clean and spacious, the breakfast buffet was outstanding, and everyone on the staff was friendly and so eager to help. We were surprised, however, to be put in a "pet-friendly" room without prior notice, even though we booked the room two months in advance. The management reports that... More
