Beautiful home and hostess and hotesses were exceptional..The Three of us stayed in the attic where we had three beds and it was cozy and soooo comfortable. We can say enough about this place and especially Dutch who served each morning at breakfast and entertained us with wonderful stories about Waco and Baylor. He's a keeper. Can't wait to go... More

Ms. Becky is a wonderful host. I recently met her at an event and while I have not stayed at the Cotton Palace I cannot say enough about her. Any stay would be well worth it based on her hospitality and sweet disposition.

Thank you so much! It's always nice to be able to get away for a few days and we had a wonderful stay in Atlanta and met such wonderful people like yourself but we love getting home to The Cotton Palace and our wonderful guests. I can't wait for you to be able to get to Waco so we can... More

Enjoyed a 52 year reunion with high school sweetheart. Highly recommend. Food, surroundings, owners . . . exceptional. So comfortable and so relaxing. Becky was the perfect hostess. We will definitely return.

This is a wonderful place to stay! The staff is always so great and the house is beautiful! I always love the decorations depending on the time of year and the courtyard is beautiful! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a special time.

I will add my voice to the glowing reviews of this B&B. Our daughter got married and our whole family took over the place. Becky recommended a caterer and we brought food in so we could entertain family and friends the day of the wedding. The place is so comfortable and homey that I'm afraid we treated it too much...

All of The Cotton Palace staff my wife and I encountered during our stay were; out-going, friendly, helpful and knowledgable concerning all aspects of the Bed and Breakfast experience. That included; arrival/departure, room accommodations, dining and housekeeping. The reservation handling, reception upon our arrival, room, dining experience, food quality, service, staff's friendliness and graciousness, bed and breakfast ambiance and overall... More

In this day and age when we go in and out of hotels and travels being so anonymous, The Cotton Palace makes a statement that there is another choice. Becky and Dutch were incredibly friendly. I met a girlfriend halfway in Waco to catch up. This wonderful home provided just the place for us. We stayed in Matt's attic which... More

I made reservations at the Cotton Patch for my friend and I to meet in Waco for a time of catching up. I needed to find a gas station before I got to the closed exits caused by road construction. I was in panic mode when my phone rang. It was Becky. She knew immediately where I was and "talked"... More

Jo & I wanted a cozy get away with good old fashioned service and with real people to make you feel welcome. Wow, did we find it! Becky and Dutch were the absolute best. The house was just perfect in every detail and we felt so welcome in the whole house not just the beautiful room we were in. The... More

I had to be in Waco for a friend's wedding on my birthday weekend, so I decided to make a mini-vacation out of it, and stayed in this wonderful B&B. The service was always fun, welcoming, and caring, and the other guests were also friendly! The breakfast was delicious, and the waiter, Dutch, was terrific. I had such a great... More
