Didn't know what to expect after reading the mixed reviews and was prepared for the worst. I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms have been extensively remodeled, making the hotel a solid value.
This is a conveniently located hotel close to the I35 near Baylor. You can tell that, when new, this must have been a near luxury hotel with an interesting atrium in the center with a decent pool, nice seating, and a quaint bar. Not the typical suite hotel. Rooms have been recently remodeled with excellent materials including granite sinks and high quality surfaces. Bed was fine. Sheets and bedding were slightly subpar (typical sheet with spongey blanket and polyester duvet). My only complaint is that as a priceline customer I was limited to the continental breakfast and had to stare at everyone eating their bacon, eggs and waffles. No problems at all with the service or the cleanliness of the room. Walls are thin, but I always bring earplugs so no issues. All in all, a good value and I'd stay here again.

Thank you so much for your review! We really appreciate you giving us the opportunity to host your stay while you visited Waco, TX. We are glad that you noticed our close proximity to Baylor University. We are now the closest hotel to the university. It is so refreshing to hear a guest has enjoyed their experience at the Clarion Hotel. We strive for all of our guests to enjoy our great lounge with delicious dinner options, and great drinks. We love to see people sitting around the heated indoor pool while their little ones splash around. Thanks for noticing the upgrades we have done in the rooms. The granite counter tops do add a nice touch to the bathrooms, and the flat screen TV's are great for catching your favorite shows when you are away from home. We hope that next time you come you will enjoy our full hot breakfast. It is delicious, and we know you would have enjoyed it! Thanks again for your kind comments about the hotel, and we hope to see you soon on your next visit!
