Certificate of Excellence

From one Inn Keeper to another, thanx for a wonderful stay. Becky, you are a wonderful host. Your beautifully restored home is a real treat. The rooms are well appointed and spacious. Breakfast is wonderful, with GREAT conversation all around. But best of all is the 'Waiter in Training', Dutch! Hope to see you in Alaska sometime.

We loved getting to host you on your trip to Waco and hearing all about your wonderful lodge in Alaska and sharing stories. I would really love to see it in person - maybe one day...

My wife and I have visited dozens of B&Bs around the U.S., and the Cotton Palace, frankly is the best one. All important B&B factors are in place - setting, rooms, ambiance, breakfast, innkeepers...it has all you expect in a high quality B&B experience.

Room Tip: We have stayed both times in Eren's Suite. Large, comfy and classy with a side sitting room. Bat...

The Cotton Palace Bed & Breakfast is a lovely Bed & Breakfast in Waco, Texas. This was our first stay at a B & B, so I was a little leery about what to expect. Becky, our gracious host, put all of my fears to rest the minute we walked through the door. She made us feel so welcomed...like we were old friends!! The rooms were all nice and our room was very comfortable. The highlight of our stay was the wonderful breakfasts and the conversations with the people we met. Our stay at the Cotton Palace was a wonderful experience...we will definitely visit again!!

So glad you enjoyed your first B & B experience! There are some wonderful properties throughout the state and it's great getting to introduce guests to the hospitality of Texas innkeepers. Looking forward to the time when your entire family can come and enjoy the house and all the Waco attractions.

The Cotton Palace was a great place to stay for a little R&R away from home. The hosts were extremely gracious & flexible and the house was beautifully decorated and well maintained. I would highly recommend it to anyone needed a cozy place to stay in Waco.

My wife and I spent a belated anniversary weekend at The Cotton Palace. It was all we hoped for. Becky Hodges and Matt Hodges provided exceptional hospitality. The breakfasts were awesome. Fresh brewable coffee, tea, bottled water and snacks always available. The location near downtown Waco was quiet and very convenient to the Waco attractions and restaurants. We would gladly go there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Erin Suite, the largest of the regular rooms. It was exceptional.

My husband and I are from Houston and recently enjoyed a getaway weekend in Waco. We stayed 2 nights at The Cotton Palace in Waco and had a wonderful time. We stayed in "Hillary's room". Our room was cozy and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was large with abundant hot water. We enjoyed the complimentary cookies and coffee always available right outside our room. Becky and Dutch were very welcoming and informative and breakfast was delicious...both mornings! The Cotton Palace will definitely be our first choice for lodging the next time we're in Waco.

What a charming historical home! So well decorated and clearly well-loved. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay. All the rooms are beautifully themed and decorated and stocked with many amenities you would only expect in a hotel (like free WI-fi, toiletries, coffee and tea - and fresh baked cookies!). The bed was SO comfortable. But, as mentioned by other guests, what "made" this visit was the genuine hospitality of the innkeepers. They are truly doing what they love! We've already booked our next weekend!

Room Tip: I viewed all the rooms (except the cottage) and they are all lovely. Rooms are not huge, but you don...
