The Residence Inn is located between Baylor University and Spice Village/Downtown Waco. It is also on the free trolley that takes you to Magnolia Farms and circles through Downtown on Austin and past Spice Village that is 2 blocks from the hotel. Free parking, free breakfast, and an evening gathering with food and drink between 6 and 7 added to...

I don't know if I am just lucky or if it is the brand but Residence Inn is the best. We walked into the Waco Residence Inn on a mid Friday afternoon. We were greeted very professionally but warmly and welcoming as if we were relatives. We soon learned that Terry was the name of our newly found "relative" I...

We chose this hotel because it is only a short walk to the Magnolia Silos. We also discovered it was within walking distance of several other shops, eating places and a park. The room was very spacious and very nice. We didn't spend much time utilizing the kitchenette or take advantage of free drinks and food for supper. I did...

We spent one night in Waco. The residence Inn was in a great location. We had our four kids in the room and it fit us perfectly. Also, they had evening nachos which was nice for the kids and morning breakfast which saved us quite a bit of money. The gym is really nothing to speak of but we asked...

This was a perfect location if you are going to see the "Silo's". The free shuttle is across the street. The room was large and the air conditioner will freeze you out! We stayed in a suite with a full size refrigerator and appliances (including a dishwasher) . Let them shop for you at the grocery store and have your...

Waco was a blast. This hotel was very accommodating. We were close to most downtown attractions. The 1 bedroom suite was perfect for a family to stay. Plus they have mixers for the quest during the week.

My husband and I were in Waco to attend the WV/Baylor baseball series. We found the hotel not only close to the campus but also close to other attractions downtown with a trolley stop near by. Easy access off I35. We are Marriott owners and always appreciate the high quality.
