I was able to check Magnolia Silos off the list with my first trip of the year to Waco, TX. During this girls trip, we stayed at the Residence Inn in Waco due to its proximity to the Silos and we were so pleased with our decision. The minute we walked in, we were warmly greeted by Brittany Walker who...

We checked in to the Residence Inn on Thursday, Jan 5, 2017 for a girls shopping weekend and couldn't have asked for a better spot! The location is just down the street from the Magnolia Silos and within walking distance to a bunch of fun stores. From the moment we checked in, the manager, Brittney made us feel right at...

Same street as Magnolia- walk or take the free shuttle. Hotel was clean and has big rooms. Brittney at the front is amazing and will take care of anything you need. The breakfast is worth staying for. Visit The Findery and Spice Village while you're in town.

I went to Waco for a girls' trip to visit Magnolia and all the local shops. We chose this property because of the high rating. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED! Wow- our room was huge, had everything we needed, and was very clean. Brittney greeted us at the front desk and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect....

Spent 5 days here and enjoyed it so much. Very quiet, good bed (asked for a non feather pillow), Brittney (front desk) so friendly & helpful. And Solida (breakfast lady) was wonderful. Both ladies made our stay so much more enjoyable. Highly recommend this for closeness to Magnolia.

I am a loyal Marriott member and live my business life in a Marriott. This property's main draw appears to be its location close to the Silo's market. Shuttle bus stop is right out front or a three block walk. Everyone is getting in on the Chip/Jo Jo gouge and they charge $10.00 to park....if you drive to the Silos....
