It's an older hotel, but it is well kept up and clean. We stay at this location every time we're in Waco and have never had a problem. I recommend it for anyone staying in the Waco area. It's location is pretty central to everything in the area.

We were visiting relatives and stayed here for three days. The room was clean and quiet. The breakfast was a little lacking, but we knew that ahead of time (having read reviews!). The location, especially if you are going to be in the Baylor area, is wonderful. Despite being right by Interstate 35, we had no noise problems. A good... More

Staff were very friendly, which was important since my daughter and I were there for Baylor Freshman Orientation. Fabulous location, right across the street from Baylor campus. My husband and I will return for Baylor move in this Fall!

Staff is friendly. Location is great right next door to Baylor University and Common Grounds. Rooms are small. Even though it was clean it looked a bit run down. Exterior is very old looking. For the price and location, the hotel is decent.

Outside is worn down. Nice area though. Lots of trees. Pool was fun although as we were getting ready to go down 2 vehicles full of kids came to pool. Not guests. Clean pool. Rooms were fairly nice. Tub shower kind of funky. Didn't want to use it. I'll wait until I get home ! Bad wifi had to stay... More

Obviously older and needs updating but it was clean and the staff was friendly. Pool was very pretty and clean. Hubby and kiddo really enjoyed their swim! Breakfast was typical...make your own waffles, cereal, bagels. Over all I'd stay again. It's affordable and close to campus!

The hotel is located right off I-35, however, it is not easy to get to. The location is ideal for someone visiting the university campus, however, it could be better located near an exit/on-ramp for the interstate. Additionally, there are no restaurants near the motel. The area around the motel is also not one that I would consider safe, as... More

We have stayed here many times because of its proximity to Baylor. I have heard they are going to soon tear it down and build a new one. If this is true, I figure that is why they aren't fixing anything anymore. This time, we ran into many snafus, including two toilets that wouldn't flush, a long piece of wood... More

The room smelled like cigarettes. The air was stale and made me want to gag. The neighborhood is run down and it is noisy. Terrible experience. The a/c is noisy. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It is not even a cheap "get me by". That is all.

So many things that were disappointing on this property. I have stayed in many LaQuinta's all across this country. Some at cheaper rates some at more expensive rates but always received a quality stay for the price. Not at this location. LaQuinta should be embarrased that they have their name on this location. Hotel (you can't even call it that),... More
