This is Waco Texas so you would think that it would be hard to find a 5 star stay with a great sleep and great amenities. Well it will be if this hotel is sold out. Stay here and you will not be disappointed. Staff-Friendly, fast, attentive to all of its guests and needs. Location-Safe, on main university drive to... More

We stayed here back in 2013 and I awarded this property with an "Excellent" rating. We stayed again last night and again, not much has changed except that the evening reception is now called "The Mix" for the Mon - Wed event. We specifically came on a Tuesday for the hamburger meal because we liked it so much last stay.... More

Stayed one night and needed info on places to eat nearby. Received, brochures and helpful advice. Chose the two bedroom suite and there was plenty of room. Full kitchen and two bathrooms. It was very quiet. We enjoyed the indoor pool.

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
