This is a convenient, affordable place to stay in Waco. It is centrally located to downtown and only a short drive away from the shopping areas. It is located next to the interstate but we stayed on the side facing the interstate and the noise wasn't bad at all. It is a basic hotel but was very clean and the...

Rooms are really small and their is no inside access to the rooms. Bathroom was extremely small. Furniture was really old and beat up. There are much better options for hotels in the area for about the same price.

I was very disappointed. The rooms were very dirty. The hotel overall was very run down and in bad need of cleaning and updating everything. I will not ever stay there again. The man that checked us in was nice and friendly. Everything looked so dirty that we would not eat the free breakfast the next morning.

This was a true motel style LaQunita. Usual free wifi, free parking and free pets policies but instead of hotel style, you can drive up to your room which makes unpacking/ packing the car so much easier. Motel was clean, comfortable and had one shampoo and one conditioner and two soaps per room. Plenty of towels. Between a Pizza Hut...

This La Quinta is a good 40 years old and, unlike some older hotel buildings, has always been a La Quinta. If you look at the furniture, ceiling, trim, and exterior stairways and such, it is showing its age. However, it has been fairly well maintained. Our room was clean and comfy. Positives: firm beds and three thick pillows per...

The hotel is old. Rooms had an odor. Air conditioner finally cooled the room when lowered to 60*. LOUD band noise from coffee house 2 streets over booms when you're trying to go to sleep! Mildew in bathroom. We paid $100 for a room that should have been $50.

Right next door to Baylor, plenty of places to eat close by. Room clean, roomy and well presented but no microwave and no fridge. There is a bar/club between the hotel and Baylor that played very loud music until late at night Friday and Saturday. Staff friendly. The 'afternoon tea' of fresh lemonade, cookies and bar snacks was a nice...

Hotel was somewhat older with some rooms updated and others in need of repair or clean up. There is a coffee shop and ice cream shop next door. Unfortunately the coffee shop had a band playing outside in an open courtyard the night we were there and our room faced the courtyard. They were not too loud but the drum...

I stayed in this hotel on many occasions years back on business when I was in Waco for meetings. The location is good and easy to get downtown and other locations.
