Great hotel that met our needs. A decent hotel in Waco can be hard to find, but this one fit the bill. Very clean, free breakfast with several hot and cold options, indoor pool that the kids enjoyed, and a friendly courteous staff. We will stay here again.

I just needed a place to spend the night in the Waco area, arriving late and leaving early. After reading other reviews, I decided to try the Fairfield Inn in Woodway. Was greeted and helped by a very nice lady, and check in/out was a breeze. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. If you stay here, request an odd numbered room, which would put you away from the "traffic." (I heard traffic most of the night from my room, even with the a/c on). The breakfast was good, with most of the typical choices (fruit, waffles, cereal, bagels, eggs, sausage, etc.)

We spend the night in Waco pretty frequently. If you just need a clean room and you can get the Fairfield for a reasonable rate, it meets that need. The LaQuinta Inn & Suites (next door) is a "step up" in quality and room accommodations. We've stayed there many times and really like it. However, my FAVORITE hotel in Woodway is the Spring Hill Suites! You just have to pay more for each of these "upgrades."

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms may have better sleep quality as they are farther from the nearby highway. We hea...

We were on a fast and furious drive to get to Metarie, LA for a Dr. appointment when we pulled in at the Fairfield. The staff were very gracious to us. Breakfast was the standard waffles, eggs, sausage. We didn't use the pool, internet or exercise room so can't review that. We had a comfortable room, with a bed and that is what we required.

This is no frills, but the Fairfield Inn still provides a good stopover, with really comfy beds in the room. Breakfast bar and coffee in the lobby was actually quite decent. Only negative is the shower curtain doesn't reach into the tub.

My wife and I stayed here with our 15 year old son. The beds were very comfortable and they provided a lot of pillows. The breakfast was good but only had microwave breakfast sandwiches. Overall the stay was fine. We had some trouble with the window unit getting it cool enough but did not ask for help so I cannot fault the management for that problem.

I have stayed at hotels all over the country. I have stayed in hotels that cost roughly 3 times more than this hotel. But I have never experienced the level of genuine care and customer service as I have at this hotel. All the staff were great, but the manager and the asst manager are top notch. They just get it! They even invited me to join in on their yearly Christmas party!!!

Room Tip: Be sure to take advantage of the off-site fitness facility!!

In Waco to accompany my youngest daughter on tour of Baylor University. Booked reservation based on lower price with no expectations of anything special. Wow, was I ever surprised! From the moment we arrived, our stay exceeded all expectations in all respects. Different staff on duty at check-in and departure; all were friendly and they cheerfully accommodated two different special requests. Room was quiet, very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was excellent; more than usual continental offerings. Parking was plentiful and close. I stayed at other higher priced hotels closer to Baylor when my oldest daughter was a student there. Fairfield South is maybe five to ten minutes further from Baylor than those hotels, but it is well-worth the few extra minutes of drive-time. QUALITY at a reasonable price!!! Fairfield South is my new hotel of choice in Waco.
