We had easy access off the highway and were in close proximity to downtown Waco. The hotel is two separate buildings. One with the office on one side of the street and the other wing across the city street. That building has the outdoor pool. The rooms are older, but clean which is what I want!! The refrigerator in our... More

We have 2 small well trained dogs. The room was clean and the A/C was great. There was a nice green area to walk the pups. All in all, I would stay again. We traveled with another couple that stayed in the room next to ours and their experience was as good as ours.

We were sad to see this hotel had not been taken care of at all. People at the front desk never smiled and didn't appear to want to be at work. The hotel needs to be total rebuilt from the ground up. The doors didn't lock correctly.. The room was musty and damp. A/C didn't work, and the pool could... More

Terribly dirty. I've refused to stay in places that were cleaner than this motel. Bathroom dirty in corners, bottom of tub black with stains, mold in tile grout, chair so nasty I told children not to touch it. Sofa had to be covered with a sheet before I would allow kids to sit on it.

Loved the fact that this place backs up to Baylor and on one side you have Common Grounds (fabulous coffee shop) along with Heritage Creamery (great ice cream.) On the other side is a very good Vietnamese/Chinese restaurant called Clay Pot. Super easy access to I-35, too! Less than a mile to Magnolia Silos...

We had a terrible experience! This is an older La Quinta! The carpet was stained. The shower had the older faucet and no way to change to flow of the water. A terrible shower. The worst part...a bug was crawling in the shower the next morning! This is not ok!!!!! The good part...the mattress was comfy.

8/3/2016 I appreciate your feedback this is definitely not the experience we want you to have when staying with us! This is not acceptable by any means and not the way we want our guest experience to go. I have read your email to the staff and started a coaching lesson with my staff team about these issues. Would you... More

With all of the recent bad reviews, we were skeptical this would turn out well, but it did! Staff, hotel, room were all first rate. Room needed just a little remodeling, but otherwise worth our great price! A/C was excellent and a great relief from the hot humid day. Worth considering a stay here. If you have complaints, talk to... More

We were on our way to San Antonio for a family vacation and made this a rest stop. We got the executive king suite for a really good price. True the interior is outdated but our beds and bathroom were clean. Everyone was very friendly and check in went very smoothly.
