We stayed here last night. We were here to visit Baylor. I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff and the clean and comfortable hotel. Breakfast is a big plus! You can make your own little waffles. The rest of the hot breakfast was very good. They had scrambled eggs, sausage, potatoes, grits, cereal, muffins, bagels, toast, and that doesn't... More

We are in a new phase of life where we have to account for two kids when choosing a hotel. Residence Inn Waco was ideal for our trip. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. They addressed me by name on several occasions. Room is nice, but not spectacular. We got a 2BR suite. The HVAC system was pretty loud,... More

Just returned from our stay here and we already miss everyone there!! Miss Sonita was such a sweet and friendly face to see each morning at breakfast!! Everyone there was friendly and made sure our stay was comfortable, just like home away from home. You're walking distance to Magnolia, and literally minutes away from all that Waco offers!!

We stayed here on our first girls weekend and would highly recommended it to anyone. The hotel was much nicer then expected and the location to everything was perfect! But what makes this the best hotel of all is the staff, especially the General Manager Brittany Walker. Upon arrival after a three hour drive, I discovered I had left my... More

Nicely appointed room within walking distance to Magnolia Market, restaurants and shopping. Had a nice kitchen which we didn't use except for the ice maker. Would use it if I were on a budget but we enjoyed eating out.
