My daughters are touring a couple of days at Baylor. I booked here based on positive reviews I read here. I am not very happy with my choice. The location is fabulous. About a mile from Baylor and just a few blocks from magnolia market so for location it gets 5 stars. The hotel property gets 2. It’s a tired, tired hotel in need of renovation. Carpet stains, this teeny tiny elevator, paper thin walls and while I do think it’s sanitary, housekeeping is sloppy. Like smudges on bathroom mirror not cleaned from previous guests. I am here right now and it’s dreary enough I am not interested in reading a magazine and relaxing with downtime. It’s just bleh and dreary. I don’t think I will try breakfast tomorrow. Service has been nice. It’s just too bad with such a great location that Marriott wouldn’t step up and renovate.

Overall, this was a fine stay - close to everything, very nice staff, and clean. But be advised, they do accept pets, if that bothers you. My only complaint is that the sofa had a chemical smell that bothered me. We would normally choose Courtyard, but this was what was available. I wish they would use pillows other than feather.

An ideal stop off point for all the interests that Waco has to offer. Within walking distance of the Silos. With the free trolley ride stopping close by most of the local attractions are within easy reach with out having to using your car. With an excellent kitchen in the room all tastes are catered for.

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!
