"Nice Enough"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 24, 2014
Melissa R | Waco, United States
The stay was fine. The rooms were clean and nice. The breakfast could have some choice of meat and eggs. But plenty of pastry and yogurt. The staff was nice and helpful. The only thing that was not so good was the toilet didn't flush well and ran most of the time.

"What do you mean?"

This was an older hotel, where you go into your room from the outside. That is why I gave it an average. But everything was clean and worked. And the price was great. The newer hotels would charge a lot more.

"Good staff, noisy guests"

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.

"La Quinta Waco, Good bang for your buck"

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.

"not new but excellent value"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 24, 2014
Linda F | Brazoria, United States
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.
