“Great hotel”
Reviewed 20 September 2012

I love staying at this Super 8 because the service is amazing. The rooms are very clean and smell good. The breakfast served in the morning is much better than the other super 8 I have stayed at. I can access the internet for free and can print any important documents in the lobby if I need to. Would recommend this hotel to friends and family for sure.

Called ahead and received good price for an overnight stay. Quick checkin and friendly staff greeted us. However, the overall building, lobby, elevator, and hallway did not provide a good first impression. For example, carpet replacement activity had paused for the weekend, but guests had to walk through remnant mess in the hallway. Fortunately, the room was clean and functional. Breakfast was good, but eating area was cramped and could use some updating.

There's a good reason that this Super 8 gets mostly good reviews. The room was very clean and comfortable. Very good bed. Upscale fixtures in bathroom. Very good location near Baylor and downtown Waco. Grocery store 4 blocks away. I would definitely stay here again.

My colleague and I stayed here for about 4 nights and it was a satisfactory experience. The motel is about 20 years old but it is still in good condition. The shower was ALWAYS hot and good pressure which is an important quality to me. I have stayed in nicer hotels that gave me lukewarm showers and reception for that matter. The manager, Dianna, was just a super person and very willing to work with me. I had booked through the corporate site, but wanted to leave a night early. She explained that its better to call the hotel directly when booking rooms in advance because sometimes you cannot get a refund if you book through the corporate website. Fortunately this wasn't the case and she was happy to refund a nights stay to me.
For the money, you get free wi-fi (which often costs you in a more expensive hotel), free breakfast, and good service. Breakfast offered a waffle machine, cold cereals options, milk and juice, coffee, donuts, toast and a few other things such as oatmeal packets, etc.
Now I will be the first to say that this was not the Ritz, but I do not understand why people think they should get top-of-the-line accommodations for Super 8 prices. This was a great hotel for the money. Convenient location close to Baylor and the interstate and super employees who were all very helpful.

We hesitated so long we ended up with the Super 8. And I realize I shouldn't expect much with this chain, but they could try a little harder. Overall, it's just a tired looking building and it shows on the inside. Had our stay been longer than 2 nights we probably would've tried to book elsewhere, but we decided to grin and bear it. The shower was incapable of spraying hot water water and we had to ask multiple times for towels before I finally walked down to the front desk and politely demanded some. The bed was OK, but nothing special. If you're in a pinch, it'll do, otherwise find alternate lodging.

Very angry!!! I made a reservation last night for my son and his friend to stay here tonight. According to my cell phone, I called at 10:42PM and spoke for 5 minutes to the sweetest lady. She made a note that they would be arriving late and that they were only 18 then took my credit card information. Alas, my son calls me 200 miles from home at midnight and said they arrived to find the motel had no record of the reservation. So, if you decide to reserve a room here, you may want to have a plan B. They did call another motel up the road and found them a room. Nice to know they aren't going to sleep in their car tonight.

We can see where you may have been upset, but without a confirmation number or name of person at front desk, it was impossible to find your reservation. As far as credit cards we do not charge a credit card without credit card authorization form being filled out. I do sincerely apoogize for any inconvendience this may have caused you. But if you will give us another try we will gladly give you 50% off of your stay.

Brought our three grandkids for spring break. The room was clean and cool. The bathroom extra clean. This Super 8 is near the Dr. Pepper Museum, Tx Sports Hall of Fame and Cameron Park. The breakfast was OK but it's free. Plenty of restaurants in the area. The price was very reasonable. We've stayed in expensive hotels whose overall ratings were not as good as this Super 8. The service was excellent. Dianna the manager was very helpful and friendly. We would gladly stay here in the future. John from Midlothian Tx

Room Tip: Ground level is nice no need for elevator. Auto not far away.
