Great price for 5 night stay, but was awaken many times - once it was 3 am and room above me was throwing things on their floor. 1st night there were many slamming doors until well after 2 am, seemed to be young sports team there. Handle to hot water in shower was leaking and would have to use wash cloth to turn off after shower.
Good bang for your buck. It is a really pleasent place to stay, not too fancy, but fancy enough. The staff is ever so helpful and courtes. The location is also great, it is in central Waco, everything is close by. Air conditioning was good too, breakfast was great with good variety.
We had an "executive two doubles and a sleeper sofa" room and it was huge. The hotel is old but the room was clean. The beds are double as stated - not queen so one of our teens enjoyed the sleeper sofa. The breakfast is very basic but was open at 6. We actually wanted to hit the road at 6 and were able to help ourselves to bagels to go and coffee about 10min before 6. Unlike some hotels with "fridges" the one we had at LaQuinta Waco kept our cold things cold rather than just cool. Overall, if you can forgive the older look, this is an excellent value. Tip - stay at the opposite end of the next-door bar or the other building if it's a party night. We heard sound only faintly that did not disturb our sleep but we were near the opposite end of the building next to the bar.
We traveled to Waco to drop our daughter to the Baylor Line Camp, we arrived a day early and booked a couple of rooms at La Quinta University in Waco. Was pleasantly surprised to see that everything that we had requested was taken in consideration. The rooms were very clean and the AC in the rooms was already on! This makes a big difference, because you come in the room and it is all nice and cool, specially in the Texas summer. Great Service, Great Staff and the Manager goes the extra mile to help his guests. will definitely come back to this hotel. Great value for your money!
We come to the La Quinta Waco University Hotel every summer for at least 4 nights. The rooms are generally clean and smell decent; there may be a little mold in the bathrooms, but it's small amounts. The beds are hard but they work. The atmosphere of the hotel and the great staff are what make it worth coming back.
