A friend recommended the Ramada Hewitt as a place to stay when visiting Waco. Because of the excellent price during Baylor Homecoming weekend, my family stayed there (I hesitate to give away this secret, as hotels at good prices are hard to find that weekend).
The hotel is just one exit past the Highway 6 exit, so it is fairly close to Waco. The hotel was built about a year ago, but for some reason there is still construction going on in front of the hotel which may just be repairs. There is a strange fountain and lighted columns in front surrounded by a small picket fence, which do not go with the nice limestone decor on the front of the hotel.
The entrance looks nice with a two-story lobby, but there is a frayed rug on the floor which does not give a good impression. The guest rooms are fine and have a flat-screen TV, with a bathroom that is a nice size. The air conditioning in our room didn't work well, which is not a good thing in Texas ... even in November.
The breakfast is fine, but it seems like it was purchased at Costco.
