When we checked in, we were told our room was given to someone else. We did get another room, but it was not the same sort of room we reserved to begin with. The pool and pool area were pretty nice. The room was clean, so there's that.

We've stayed here a couple of times and the rooms have always been clean, the staff pleasant and the food from the bar/restaurant pretty good. The shower in one of the rooms was great with various settings, the other time in a different room it was just a regular hotel shower but had good pressure. This is very close to... More

This place is old 1 1/2 stars would be more like it. The rooms are small and cramped. The bath was very small to the extent you have to stand "IN" the bathtub or slide in beside the toilet to close the door. Not nearly enough outlets in the room. We had trouble plugging in the computer and charging a... More

Well, the rooms look NOTHING like the pictures. The first room we went in - the carpet had SO many stains. It did not look 'clean' at all!!!! There was little pieces of trash by the wall. It was hot and smelled musky. It was also non-smoking and it smelled heavily of smoke. Oh, and the bed did not look... More

The swimming room and surrounding area were very enjoyable. on site parking was plentiful and they served a delightful breakfast buffet poolside (indoors) at a great price.... More

I stayed at the Clarion at Waco with my school last week to compete in a competition at Baylor University. This is my second year staying there, and I had a fine time. The staff was very friendly. They have a pretty neat design-- with a pool/lounging area in the center of the inn and the rooms surrounding it. The... More

We reserved two rooms at the Clarion Inn-Waco for Saturday, May 3rd weeks before the check-in date. I even contacted the inn the day before to confirm the reservation; a one-bedroom suite and a standard room. When we arrived, one hour early, we were told to come back at three, so we went to eat and returned @ 3:15 pm.... More

They service was good! But I got bed bug bites from sleeping in the bed. Me, and my friend both got these bites after waking up in these beds. I have them all over my legs, back, and hands. I would not sleep there again.

The hotel is OK, but showing signs of wear. Room was good and the bed was comfortable. The issue that I had was with the in room safe charge of $1.50 plus tax. I know that doesn't sound like much, but our group had 6 rooms reserved. That's $9 extra to pay. The charge is buried in the tax section... More

Thank you for your review of our hotel. You have a valid point concerning the safe charges. We have a sign at our front desk that discloses the safe charges, and states that all guests can request that this charge be removed in the event that they do not use the safe. I understand that during the check in process,... More
