“OK for a night”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We stayed here on our way to Austin. The staff was friendly. The room was OK. The room is dated but per the comments below it looks like they are working on it. I agree with the moldy smell in the hallways during our stay and I even saw two live roaches running around so again, glad I only stayed here one night. A nice perk they offered is access to Gold's Gym during yoru stay but I don't know where it was in relevance to the hotel. The breakfast here was minimal and kind of disappointing compared to other hotels we stayed at but if you are looking for a quick place to stay like we were this will do but I don't think that I would make this my first choice if I came back.

Needing a variety of considerations, I have found this particular Super 8 near Baylor University in Waco, Texas, to be more than gracious and hospitable in my requirements. I'm now staying there on a regular basis. Thank you.

The sheets in our room smelled like mold and mildew. The carpets were filthy dirty, and the wi-fi did not work. They had a full hotel because of events in town, but that is no excuse for a wi-fi that would not even let you connect.

I'll think twice about visiting this property again.

We are truly sorry for any inconvenience you may have had on your last stay with us. As for as the internet all we needed to do was reset it. It is up and running well. We have been replacing carpet in our hallways, so you may have smelled the old carpet being replaced. We hope to see you in the near future so that you may see our changes.

I love staying at this Super 8 because the service is amazing. The rooms are very clean and smell good. The breakfast served in the morning is much better than the other super 8 I have stayed at. I can access the internet for free and can print any important documents in the lobby if I need to. Would recommend this hotel to friends and family for sure.

Called ahead and received good price for an overnight stay. Quick checkin and friendly staff greeted us. However, the overall building, lobby, elevator, and hallway did not provide a good first impression. For example, carpet replacement activity had paused for the weekend, but guests had to walk through remnant mess in the hallway. Fortunately, the room was clean and functional. Breakfast was good, but eating area was cramped and could use some updating.

There's a good reason that this Super 8 gets mostly good reviews. The room was very clean and comfortable. Very good bed. Upscale fixtures in bathroom. Very good location near Baylor and downtown Waco. Grocery store 4 blocks away. I would definitely stay here again.
