We absolutely loved everything about this hotel. We visited Waco as "Fixer Upper" fans and the location of the Residence Inn was perfect for a short (3 blk) walk directly to the Silo area. The staff (every single person) was super nice and extremely helpful! (I would mention names but I'm terrible with remembering) The room was just perfect, clean...

We chose this hotel because it is only a short walk to the Magnolia Silos. We also discovered it was within walking distance of several other shops, eating places and a park. The room was very spacious and very nice. We didn't spend much time utilizing the kitchenette or take advantage of free drinks and food for supper. I did...
