My daughter and I stayed there for five nights while we went to orientation at BU. After the third night my daughter stayed on campus for line camp. The owner, Vickie was such a kind and welcoming lady. She woke up so early to make us the most wonderful scones to take with us to orientation and the morning we... More

Vicki and Dutch made the stay at The Cotton Palace a wonderful experience! Our first visit to a B&B definitely will not be our last...the location, accommodations, service, and care were all first class! My wife and I will be back soon! Thank you for the great weekend!

Best B&B we have ever stayed in! We’ll be back many times - The Inn Keeper, Vicky, was warm, gracious, and absolutely accommodating to every detail. She was authentic and genuinely interested in making sure we had a wonderful stay. The Inn is a glorious, comfortable, superbly decorated home that is relaxing and a place that makes you feel as...

Both Vicki and Dutch made the Cotton Palace experience above the normal B&B hospitality. Our stay started with gluten-free cookies and a long chat about the new owner's move serve travelers. The décor and amenities were lush and our room was quiet. Gluten-free breakfast included a fantastic hash-brown crust quiche, fruit, juices, bacon and fabulous coffee. Additional pampering included gluten-free... More

Ms. Vicki made us feel so welcome! Beautifully appointed rooms, very comfortable! Breakfast was superb! We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend the Cotton Palace on your next visit to Waco! During breakfast we were honored to meet Dutch, former Baylor University Baseball Coach, who was thoroughly enjoyable to visit with!

Lovely comfortable bed and breakfast! Would highly recommend staying here! All bedrooms were tastefully decorated with on-suite baths. I've never slept so well away from home! We had a very pleasurable visit to Waco for my nephew's graduation from Baylor. Looking forward to another opportunity to stay at The Cotton Palace again. Girl's trip?

The Cotton Palace is under new ownership, and it's just as great as it's always been! The new owner, Vicki, is very charming and accommodating, and really goes out of her way to welcome guests to her beautiful home. And the best part, "Dutch" still comes to serve breakfast and converse with the guests every morning! The Cotton Palace is... More

Our stay was perfect from the time Vickie opened the front door until the time we drove away! The House was exquisite. We stayed in the Jennifer and couldn't have been more pleased. The accommodations were perfect. The bed, very comfortable and the restroom, stocked with all the basic toiletries. Aside from Vickie being the perfect hostess and answering all... More

My husband and I went for a quick weekend getaway. We really enjoyed our visit. Our stay at Cotton Palace was nothing less than amazing. Vicki welcomed us like we were family. She is the sweetest lady and had the best in-town suggestions. The B&B is beautiful and inviting. Breakfast was delicious and servings were more than I could eat.... More
