“Excellent Value”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

We found this hotel through trip advisor. It had the best rating of the lower priced properties. It was a great choice, nothing fancy, but a very clean well maintained property. The staff was very friendly and it is in a great location. The neighborhood seems safe and the hotel entrance is locked at night , The breakfast consited of toaster waffles, donuts, bread for toast, cold cereal, milk and coffee.

Reviewed 1 August 2011

I spent 2 nights here in mid July 2011. The location was good, but the hotel is old, a bit dirty and in desperate need of updating. The WiFi did not work most of the time with it ranging between 0 and 1 bars of strength in my room, which was toward the end of one hallway. The breakfast was bad, even compared to offerings at this price level. The first morning, most of the items on the breakfast bar had run out and were not replaced, so I was left with luke warm water to make oatmeal and 1 measly mini donut to eat. You can purchase cold sodas in the breakfast area, but the small fridge that they are in doesn't even begin to chill them.

On a positive note, the staff was very friendly and personable and the hotle location is not far outside of Waco. It is close to Baylor U., the Little League playoff fields and the Texas Sports Hall of Fame, which is worth visiting while there.

We were new to the area from Boston and were so comfortable when greeted by the woman at the front desk to make a reservation. After checking out at least 10 hotels, we were most impressed with this one. The price is great and even better if you get the extended stay rates. The customer service is fabulous at this hotel. The front desk, the cleaning staff, the maintenance men...everyone is SUPER friendly and warm. You feel more like friends with them, rather than just a guest at the hotel. Even the owner of the hotel was on site a lot and interacted with all of the guests. The rooms are clean and the location is great. The whole experience was positive, but the women at the front desk are truly what make you want to keep staying longer. I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Extended stay rates are the way to go!

I stayed here for four nights this past week, and I don't think I could have asked for any better service. Housekeeping was very fast and I always came back to a clean room (even if I came back within an hour). Hotel is extremely clean, not a single complaint there. Breakfast was better than expected, with some good hot biscuits and gravy every morning. Management was extremely helpful and friendly, went out of their way to make sure my stay was very pleasant. Overall, the best value in Waco.

I usually have a hard time sleeping at cheaper hotels because I suffer from lower back problems. However, this is my second time staying at Super 8 Waco and I've had zero issues with their beds, slept perfectly. This was probably the most surprising aspect of my visit.

Large parking lot as well, nothing to worry about there. They do offer truck parking too.

Internet was very fast and easy to get onto.

Also, it's only a few minutes drive from Baylor campus (only the La Quinta is closer, but they charge a lot more than Super 8). Also, their weekly rates are very good, I couldn't find any other clean hotel to even come close to matching their price. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great everything! Very nice hotel. Clean, confortable spacious rooms. Good breakfast. Friendly staff.
The staff and accomodations at this hotel are excellent. It is conveniently located off of IH 35 in Waco, Texas. The rooms are especially clean and comfortable and the staff bends over backwards to make sure I was completely satisfied. I give the place a "10" for excellent!
