This La Quinta is a good 40 years old and, unlike some older hotel buildings, has always been a La Quinta. If you look at the furniture, ceiling, trim, and exterior stairways and such, it is showing its age. However, it has been fairly well maintained. Our room was clean and comfy. Positives: firm beds and three thick pillows per... More

The hotel is old. Rooms had an odor. Air conditioner finally cooled the room when lowered to 60*. LOUD band noise from coffee house 2 streets over booms when you're trying to go to sleep! Mildew in bathroom. We paid $100 for a room that should have been $50.

Right next door to Baylor, plenty of places to eat close by. Room clean, roomy and well presented but no microwave and no fridge. There is a bar/club between the hotel and Baylor that played very loud music until late at night Friday and Saturday. Staff friendly. The 'afternoon tea' of fresh lemonade, cookies and bar snacks was a nice... More

Hotel was somewhat older with some rooms updated and others in need of repair or clean up. There is a coffee shop and ice cream shop next door. Unfortunately the coffee shop had a band playing outside in an open courtyard the night we were there and our room faced the courtyard. They were not too loud but the drum... More

I stayed in this hotel on many occasions years back on business when I was in Waco for meetings. The location is good and easy to get downtown and other locations. The hotel is old but has been upgraded and is clean and neat. Rooms are nice and spacious. Price is average and in line with others in the area.... More

This is a large place. Motel is on two sides of the road. I got the older section. Room was clean and bed was ok. A lot of the outside needed attention. The inside of the room was older. This is close to the interstate and Magnolia store. This road that it is on is a one-way, as are a... More

We came to Waco for a visit at Baylor. We booked this hotel for 2 nights. We were in the room for MAYBE 10 minutes and saw 3 roaches. We've stayed at LA Quinta plenty of times but NEVER experienced anything like this. I'll NEVER book at LaQuinta again!!!! We got our bags and left. Money down the drain. Poor... More

Our family has stayed in La Quinta inns all over the eastern part of the US. We always enjoy the value of a nice hotel, that includes breakfast and clean accommodations. At this LaQuinta, we had trouble with the in room wifi, but it was clean and close to everything we visited.

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
