We were visiting our student at Waco and found this fairly inexpensive hotel, just about 10 minutes from the Baylor campus, south on I-35. It got good reviews by other travelers, so we decided to give it a try.
The hotel room was clean and comfortable, and relative to other hotels near Waco, fairly inexpensive. We got a good night's sleep...and that's what is most important.
I think the owners/hotel chain consider this a 2.5* hotel. In my honest opinion, it's definitely NOT that. I would say more like a very nice 1* hotel, or an average 2* hotel. Whoever did the construction did lots of "short cuts." The bathroom fixtures were not installed correctly, so lots of gaps at corners, etc. There are no vanity lights above the bathroom sink (so it makes it harder to put on make up, or to shave in the mornings). They picked the most unusual tile floor for the room/bathroom. The sheets, although freshly laundered, had permanent stains. Again, just little things.
If you need a clean, inexpensive place to stay in the Waco area, this place will work. Nothing more. Nothing less.
