Courtyard by Marriott Waco

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I chose this hotel because of its proximity to places I wanted to visit I.e Magnolia Silos. It was also a walking distance to Spice Village. The room is nice and the bed is comfortable. The problem I had was that there seemed to have no AC in the hallway, made me sweaty every time I pass. Nice reception area and friendly staff but not much dealing with them except to check in and out.

Overall pleased with stay as it was centally located, clean with helpful staff.

The shower water pressure has to be the most powerful I've ever experienced in a hotel. If you are not prepared, it will surprise you. No need for exfoliates with that shower. Our only complaint would be the grease smell from their dining/kitchen area that permeates the entire bottom floor. Fortunately, we were on the 3rd floor. Otherwise, it was a pleasant stay.

In Waco to hear YoYo Ma with the Waco Symphony and for a special meeting at Baylor. This is a perfect location for such an occasion. Staff was fantastic. Room was excellent...even breakfast was surprisingly delightful.

The hotel was very clean and the room was adequately furnished. The reception was very friendly and registration was as planned. The hotel is located in a good area - right across from the Brazos River and suspension bridge. Restaurants - though limited are close by. The breakfast buffet was a major drawback. Most hotels now offer a complimentary breakfast but this hotel charged $7.95 per person. The food was only adequate for the amount charged. Styrofoam and plastic utensils should not be used if you are charging. One of two coffee pots was empty the entire time we were there. We still had to bus our own tables. The staff were all very professional and courteous. I would stay here again - except eat at other close by restaurants for breakfast.

The location was fine. The mini fridge had black mold in the ice trays and shelf. The bathtub did not drain properly and appeared to be clogged.

Good hotel, comfortable beds. Easy to access from the highway. We stayed in a king with sofa bed - with 4 people. Sofa was a little small for 2 people but it was all they had left due to tournaments in town. Breakfast was $10.99 per person so we skipped it for a restaurant on our way. Accommodations were fine, nice staff.

This hotel was in a great location near to the wedding we attended in downtown Waco this weekend. It would have been nice if breakfast was included instead of being $9.95, but we knew that when we booked the hotel.

Great location - right in downtown next the Brazos River and near to Baylor University, which was exactly where we wanted to be. Everything was good, but the bathroom counter is very small and tight. Otherwise, I would stay there again. Also, the breakfast was excellent along with the staff that served us.

I would have given the hotel a higher rating however, when I checked in because my cc was international it was declined at the desk. My guest placed the incidental charge in his cc. I asked the front desk attendant how much the charge would be and was told 40.00. After checking out my guest informed me that the charge held on his account was 120.00. I didn't even pay that for the room!!! After calling the hotel and speaking with the GM, she offered an apology and told us the attendant had misinformed us. (Well obviously). We were then told if the charge didnt drop off in 3 days to give them a call back. ( Well Obviously)!

one night saty, everthing was clean and staff helpful

Wonderful, walked to the bridge at night, swam til 10, up and gone by 7am.

This hotel was perfect for a weekend visit with my daughter who attends Baylor. It's a very easy 1 1/2 mile from the school in a safe location. [...] But definitely a great hotel. There were two desktop computers and printers in an open office area that we used for Mapquest directions. That was very helpful, and I enjoyed not being in a tiny closed room, as is the case with many hotel work centers. Would have liked some optional continental breakfast option other than the full breakfast for 8.95 per person. We decided to skip breakfast as a result. The King size room with couch was VERY small. I think it would have felt more spacious without the couch. And the bathroom could use an upgrade.But other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay!

We were in town for a wedding. The hotel was convenient and close to the reception site. Check in went seamlessly and everything lived up to expectations.

Well, they were busy with a full house of teen-age cheerleaders, so maybe our situation wasn't normal. But we did have a couple of problems: no linens for the sleeper sofa after we paid for a larger room so our college-age son would have a place to sleep; housekeeping took the wet towels after the first day, but didn't leave any dry ones for the next day; the shower has the nice bowed rod so the curtain doesn't wrap around your legs, but as a result the curtain is short for the tub and things got wet when my husband took a shower; and the room smelled a bit when you first walked in, but it wasn't too bad. In their favor, the hotel staff is nice, the bed had lots of pillows, and the rooms were quiet even with all the giggling cheerleaders down the hall. In both missing item cases, we got the needed items after a call to the front desk. It is right downtown so there were good restaurants within walking distance.
