We stayed here on our first girls weekend and would highly recommended it to anyone. The hotel was much nicer then expected and the location to everything was perfect! But what makes this the best hotel of all is the staff, especially the General Manager Brittany Walker. Upon arrival after a three hour drive, I discovered I had left my...

Nicely appointed room within walking distance to Magnolia Market, restaurants and shopping. Had a nice kitchen which we didn't use except for the ice maker. Would use it if I were on a budget but we enjoyed eating out.

If you are in the Waco area for any event which involves Baylor University, I would strongly suggest looking into the location of this establishment. There are also many locations which are within walking distance, if by some chance you are visiting during the cooler months of the year.

The hotel now has a new manager Brittany, who is one of the friendliest people you could meet. She has brought freshness and new life to the hotel which was very much needed. Some of the additions are real bacon for breakfast, improved variety of snack in the shop, iced fruit water at reception and a "special" hand cleanser in...

Never in my travels have I been treated so poorly. On a business trip traveling with a large group, the maids were the only accommodating staff in the entire hotel.
