We visited Waco for a football game and to see out granddaughter a new Baylor bear.this is a nice place to stay because it is close to the stadium not walking distance but they have a 10$ shuttle. The hotel has a breakfast but no dedicated restaurant.the staff is helpful in finding places to eat but you will need a car with gps.

We stayed here for one night while visiting Waco. It was a clean hotel with clean rooms and a comfortable space! The staff was amazing. They were so friendly and helpful. Their included breakfast offered many great options. All in all good experience!

It has been almost 3 years since I have stayed at this hotel. We booked a 2-room suite for 3 people, and the room was outstanding. I noticed that a few areas of the property have deteriorated slightly and could use fresh paint/wallpaper in the hallways and the common areas. The staff was excellent and friendly, and 2 staff members actually remembered me from 3 years ago. I'm not exactly sure what that means. I would certainly recommend this hotel as the place to stay in Waco; we didn't even consider anywhere else since our prior stay. However, Marriott should spend a little money refreshing the property.

We stayed in a lovely king studio while visiting the Silos. The Residence Inn is just a short 5 block walk to the Silos, even though a little on the hot & sticky side. A more than adequate continental breakfast is served every morning. A great place to stay and one we'll return to.

This is a great place if you are in town to help your kids in starting school at Baylor,It is next doors. Great people and feels like home. Very convenient . Typical residence Inn accommodations family freindly, has a kitcenette , if you want to put together a meal

We two couples were in town for 3 days primarily for a wedding. Brittany was SOOOO helpful in not only changing our reservation to add a day on the front end of the time but found us 2 King studio rooms for the 3 nights for cheaper than the original price for one 2 BR suite...she went out of her way to make our stay pleasant. The entire staff was helpful and pleasant, the breakfasts were good, and the meeting area in front made for a great place to visit with friends at the end of the day. 4 block walk to Magnolia, on the free trolley route, and close to Baylor University. This was an incredible visit in a fine hotel.

We had a wonderful stay for the 4th of July weekend! Our room was clean, quiet and updated. You could tell the hotel was a little older. They need some renovations in the hallway, but other than that our stay was excellent!!! Breakfast was great, pool was clean. We had 0 problems!!! We will be coming back!

We drove up for my son's two day orientation at Baylor. We needed a place to stay close by since the first day of orientation was such a long day. The reviews on Trip Advisor seemed positive...and I agree! Great place to stay. Convenient and very close to Baylor! Breakfast was great! Eggs.bacon. sausage. GRITS. waffles. cereal. fruit. oatmeal. And the staff was excellent! Will definitely come back here when visiting Baylor.

We found a great price on this hotel through a hotel site. Eight of us were in town to visit Magnolia Market and this hotel is within walking distance or a 2 minute drive. The hotel was very clean, the staff was very friendly, and we were charmed by the hot dog vendor that came on Wednesday night to serve the guests of the hotel. Martha was extremely welcome and hands on. This is usually rare in my experience. She ran to the room to see if I had left my candle in the frig and called me back 5 minutes later to confirm that I had. We loved the different flavored water at the lobby each day - cantaloupe one day, watermelon the next - especially in the summer Texas heat. The Magnolia Market trolley comes right by this hotel. My only downside to my stay was 1) the pillows were really tall and unforgiving and 3 of us 5 adults work up with a sore neck on both days and 2) the bathroom door opens up really tight onto the toilet and tub so to use the toilet, I had to walk in and shimmy up against the tub to close the door. Maybe bring your own pillow and be prepared to shimmy. :)

My family and I stayed at the Residence Inn Hotel in Waco, Texas. We stayed at this hotel because we were dropping our eldest son off at Baylor University for summer school, and it was also one of the hotels closest to the university. After dining out and checking into our room hours later, evening approached. That night had a combination of calm (it’s always calm before the storm). Before going to bed in any hotel I check to see if the windows are locked, the bathrooms, the closets, etc. At first my daughter noticed one of the tiny, winged insects (they looked similar to gnats, if you ask me) crawling on one of the walls in the living room area, and then the rest of the family began to see more and more of them. We inspected each room again, I open the curtains in the bed room when I looked behind the curtains and up to the top of the window, lo and behold: at the window in one of the bedrooms was a myriad of these insects and varies bugs, a small swarm of them on and around the window ceil. We were surprised and shocked, to say the least. I called the night manager on duty from the hotel room and explained to him the insect incident. He came up to the room, and he acted as the exterminator for the night by spraying the infested area, closing off that bedroom with duct tape, and bringing along with him a fan to keep the room cool and reduce the chance of any more insects coming into our hotel room. My family headed to the lobby, and we talked to the front desk and the night manager to ask them if they had any more rooms for us to stay in (My family wasn’t pleased; even after he sprayed, we checked the living room and second bedroom twice-minutes after he sprayed and hours after he sprayed-and found more of the bugs in other places, like on the tile floor in the kitchen, on another wall, etc.), and unfortunately, no hotel out there or nearby, including the one we resided at, had any rooms available (They were all sold out, and the next stop would’ve been in Dallas, or a town in the middle of nowhere.). We had a family meeting and we settled on staying in the living room and the second bedroom that wasn’t bug infested (this being after the night manager checked the beds, removed the top mattresses/transported them to another location, and brought in rollaway beds), and my eldest son decided to stay overnight with one of his friends. We checked out of the hotel the next morning and went straight to another hotel. Overall, I was disappointed by the fact that (1.) my family has stayed at this hotel countless times, and we had, up until this point in time, never experienced any conflicts, difficulties, or problems like this one, and (2.) when I brought up this bug problem to the night manager and one of the people working the front desk, it seemed as if they knew that room had problems with the insects coming in yet did nothing to fix the problem or come to a resolution.
