Quiet , clean , ample dining options . near Baylor University . Good access to the interstate and business district . Located in what seems to be a quiet safe neighborhood . Did notice upon leaving early that a security guard was on patrol . Breakfast area was nice and clean and their was plenty of food available with the usual La Quinta fare .

I somewhat older Hotel but near Baylor University and close to museums and restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful when my TV and phone would not work. They repaired it within minutes. The beds are comfortable and we had a microwave and mini-fridge.

"Unexpected pleasure"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 8, 2014

I really had low expectations whenever we travel. You want the best deal at the lowest price and you get what you pay for. My wife was very happy with the room and the bed coverings. You never know with off the highway hotels but we were very pleased with everything overall. The rooms were very clean and not just scented clean. The pool was not over exposed to passersby and we were offered pool towels...go figure. I'll stay there when in Waco and would look for other La Quinta's.

"Basic, Clean, Comfortable Beds 'n Pillows"

My wife and I stayed here after a Baylor football game. The room and bed were nice and clean, AC was cold and cozy. Basic room, TV had lots of channels. Complimentary breakfast was only cereal, beverages, and a do-it-yourself waffle maker. The lobby is small and cramped. But the staff is friendly. $166+tax.

"A Great Place to stay"

Traveling through Waco and we always try and stay at a La Quinta as we have a small dog. This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this same La Quinta. Front desk lady was very nice. She went out of her way to give us the type of room we were wanting. I know we can find cheaper rooms that accept animals but we chose to stay where we knew what we were getting.
