A bit tired on the exterior but the rooms are remodeled and updated. Bath was small. Beds are very comfortable! "Breakfast" was terrible. Powdered creamer for coffee; "pastries" were in cellophane wrap. I didn't stay for the breakfast. I stayed for sleeping, which was great.

When we checked in service was good and staff was nice. There was limited parking, but Taco Bell was just a walk across the parking lot. Hotel is also located along a strip mall with lots of stores. The room was ok with not such a great cleaning job, but beds were great & had wonderfully comfortable sheets! Guest were...

We didn't get photos because we wanted to get out asap. The carpet was stained, the beds were very expired, there was crap all over the walls and doors...food, dirt, body fluid? The bathroom- tile where it has been walked on was black in the grout and the untouched was white. The toilet paper holder was rusted and the toilet...

My car broke down in Waco at night, and the tow truck driver recommended this hotel. The owner was very helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and continental breakfast was included. There was a second-run movie theater across the parking lot, which helped take my mind off my situation. The next morning, they let me stay a little after...

We chose this hotel for a great price in a good location, so frankly, I was not expecting much. To my surprise, the rooms have been newly renovated, and are clean and comfortable. The bathroom/microfridge area has an awkward layout from original construction, but I have no complaints since it is functional as is. I would stay here again.

My boyfriend and I like to meet in Waco when neither of us are up for a 3 hour drive (he's in Dallas, I'm in Austin.) We are still on a hunt for a clean, basic, pet-friendly, decently priced hotel to spend the night in with our dog. When I first entered our ground-floor room at America's Best Inn, I...

Good for a bed and a shower. Location was not ideal, the main office had an unusual odor and the breakfast was not up to par. I most likely would not stay here again or recommend it...You get what you pay for.

The room was clean, liked the white bedspreads. Address on Franklin made a easy trip to the river and Magnolia Market, Spice Village, and bridge. Easy to find places I wanted to visit, price was a deal. Staff was very friendly. Only com breakfast was skimpy and needed a clean bread container.

My room was ground level, the door had some dents and felt exposed to the exterior in a not-good way. Furniture was banged up, arpet was very dirty, room had not been dusted in a very long time. Beds comfortable. Free breakfast was packaged sweet rolls & stale cereal. There were roaches and droppings in my room along with rooms...
