As a part of a school group, I checked in to a room by myself and was not located near the group. The hotel is not what I have ever experienced when staying at a La Quinta. The rooms all open to the outside. My room was upstairs at the back of the property and had a construction area behind...

This out property is located in the shadow of Baylor University and one mile away from Magnolia Market. The property is old but is clean and well maintained. The motel has outside entry doors with a nice pool area in the center. Parking is free. The bed is soft, but you will enjoy a restful nights sleep. The shower water...

This La Quinta is nothing like what we expect from a LaQuinta. The rooms all face the outside. Our room was on the first floor facing the back of the property which was creepy at night. Our room door was open a few inches when we arrived which is awful when you are on the ground level and arriving at...

Needed a pet friendly place and stayed at La Quinta in other states, so tried here. Your basic motel- yet, very nice service. A perfect place to stay- close to Silos, shopping and restaurants!! A no frills stay, so you can spend your $$ at the Silos!!🤗

I'm a La Quinta Returns member and have been for 20 years. I checked into my room and smelled the odor of cigarette smoke. No other room had the requested items that I had wanted. The manger was very understanding and gave us an upgrade to a suite. I will definitely stay there the next time i'm in Waco, TX....

My family was a bit leary on staying at this hotel with the earlier reviews, but did not encounter any issues with this hotel during Spring Break. We had a suite which had double the room that we thought we would get and the all the kids loved the pillows and mattresses. We had a little kitchette in our room...

Staff was friendly but the hotel is definitely dated and needs a major overhaul. There is no fridge or microwave which is now included in most hotels. Breakfast was very basic and the coffee tasted like boiled water.

We have stayed here several times, and yes the motel is older, but it is clean and in a great location to take in the sites of Waco. The staff has always been very welcoming and their sunshine breakfast gets us going for our day.

It is in a good location of the city. It is literally next to Baylor University and on the highway feeder. The hotel is OK if you are staying there for a night or 2. They do serve breakfast, just make sure to be there on time. It is a little dated, but clean. The staff is not so bad.
