Clean hotel with friendly staff. Breakfast buffet was good but if you come down towards the end it's slim pickins. 2 minute drive to the Baylor visitor center and quick walk to 7-11 for food or beer. Very close to downtown as well. Would have rated higher but we had to sure a room with a very large spider.

Fully equipped spacious rooms, very friendly and supportive staff, breakfast and evening get-together with free appetizers and beverages make up for a very relaxing experience when you have to stay for business longer than a few days only. Outdoor facilities with bbq, a fitness room and indoor pool help to regenerate after work. Old , but well maintained. There are... More

After three days at a water park/hotel with the kids, I arrived at the Residence Inn looking wild haired (the other place didn't have conditioner), with an eye twitch and because of exhaustion and lack of sleep I'd been reduced to grunts and monosyllables. The front desk staff was very helpful, checked us in right away and I was in... More

Conveniently located off I35 and just minutes from Baylor University, Maclane Stadium,museum and downtown Waco. Great rooms whether your choice is 1 bedroom or you and another desire to share a suite equipped with two living quarters, a common tv area, and kitchen is a great value. Breakfast is great and staff is very accomodating and friendly.Laundry rooms are provided... More

Great rooms, staff and breakfast. If you stay here be sure to chack the location of you room. I would recommend third floor to avoaid ovr head noise from walking, luggage, etc. Avoid front rooms near stairwell. Very noisy till late hours. Other than the noise it is a good place. Good location near restaurants and Baylor. I would stay... More

We stayed for one night and the room was great. Staff was super friendly, check in was very easy, breakfast was great. We loved the hotel and the location was perfect for a visit to Baylor and a basketball game.

I have nothing but praise for the staff here. They are extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel management have recently invited various food trucks to come on Wednesday evenings which adds a new perspective to the social evenings laid on. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. Beds are very comfortable.

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
