Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful since I had never been to Waco previously. They supplied me with a nice city map and gave me recommendations. My room type was oversold and since we arrived late due to airline weather issues, they upgraded the room to a beautiful two-bedroom suite complete with fireplace. The room was very clean and...

I took 12 students and another teacher with me for a state competition at the Waco Convention Center. We stayed Thursday to Saturday April 10-12. The breakfast bar had a lot of great options- a variety of fresh fruit, eggs, cereals, waffle/pancake stations. No bacon! We chose this location because it was 0.40 miles from the Convention Center. It really... More

The staff at the Residence are extremely friendly and helpful, however house keeping needs some improvement. Dusting down does not seem to be part of their regular duties. I noticed a chair in my room that was covered in dust which was not cleaned for 4 days. The general cleaning of the room has room for improvement. The rooms in... More

Travelling with family I left a few items in the suite that I realized after I checked out. I called after a two days and the hotel acknowledged receiving the items and after confirming my mailing address they assured me the items will be shipped immediately. Sure enough I received the personal belongings by fedex just a couple of days... More

My family and I had to stay here while we were having our house totally remodeled. This is the next best thing to being in your own home. The room we stayed in was two bedrooms,each with its own bathroom which was nice with four of us staying there. It had a full kitchen with stove, oven, microwave, coffee pot,... More

This hotel is nicely situated in Waco close to the Interstate is reasonably priced and is near some casual restaurants and pubs. Just be aware they no longer have their light food service on Thursdays and beware buying anything from the snack selection near the desk as they are incredibly expensive. For instance a 4 ounce mini package of Wheat... More

Stayed at this hotel for a conference the same weekend as the December 2013 ice storm and the final football game at the old Baylor University stadium. The town was in absolute chaos. The hotel staff was gracious, concerned for everyone's safety and made the 5 day stay a delight. The accommodations were perfect and extremely comfortable. The morning breakfast... More

I lived in Waco for 4 years, while attending Baylor in the 90s. One gets used to the "older" feel of Waco. When I booked our hotel stay at Residence Inn in Waco, I assumed I would get a hotel that represented how long it has been in Waco. Needless to say, that was not the case. From the moment... More
