This motel faces the highway and is barely off the ramp. Our room was ground level, the door had some dents and felt exposed to the exterior in a not-good way. Furniture was not banged up but carpet was very dirty. Bed was comfy and free wi-fi was fast. TV was fine. Free breakfast was all starch & carbs. The... More

We just needed a hotel room to stay the night and travel out early the next day. The room was clean but the door key didn't work and the TV needed hotel staff to "turn on" a switch (which they only know) for it to work. It was somewhat noisy as people had gathered outside a few doors down. Not... More

I went to this hotel expecting an old, outdated hotel. The look from outside was like a red roof (balcony with rooms looking at the parking lot but when I got inside my room, I was happily surprised! The furniture was all new (not even a single scratch on the desk or chest of drawers, all brand new). My king... More

I stay here every time I come to Waco and have done this the past 5 years. The management has always been kind and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. They are convenient to local restaurants(cheddars,longhorn,chickfilet,etc) and the price is amazing. The breakfast has great waffles but is a a little shy on things like fruit. I can't think...

We stayed the weekend of the Oklahoma/Baylor football game. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. This is a budget hotel - so, definitely standard amenities, etc. The breakfast did have the make-your-own waffles, cereal, toast, pastries, fresh fruit, coffee and juice. The only suggestion would offering hot water for the cocoa. Basic cable and non-HD TVs in... More

I know this is a 'value' hotel so I wasn't expecting a lot, but there was blood on the sheets. The towels were dirty. At 9:15am, right as I got out of the shower, there was a sound at my door I said "hello?" twice. Then someone was opening my door! Fortunately the additional latch at the top was latched.... More

We traveled to Waco for a quick overnight trip, and it was our first stay here. Didn't know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by the rooms. Very clean, and well cared for, very clean bathroom. Mattress was a little firm for my comfort, but that wouldn't deter me from staying here again.

Enjoyed my stay at this great priced hotel. Rooms were big. Wifi is good. Flat screen tv's. Comfy beds. A very safe feel to this place as compared to the other one I stayed at and looked at during my stay in Waco. If you are a contractor and need to stay a long while, they do weekly rates. B-Dubs...

Room and most importantly bathroom was clean. The beds were very comfortable and had a microwave and refrigerator. We had our pet with us and her stay was very comfortable as well. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will use this hotel again.
