The hotel has a great exterior and inviting atmosphere. It is located just across the street from the Trolley Stop for Magnolia and a very easy walk if the Trolley isn't active. The rooms were nice and the breakfast offerings were standard but good. I'd definitely stay here again! The staff was very friendly and full of great recommendations for...

The room was spacious and equipped with a kitchenette. Hotel is about a 10 minute walk to the Magnolia Silos, which was nice. Only down thing to the stay was the mattress was too firm. Did not have a good night's sleep.

Walking distance to Magnolia Market. Great service, clean room. We got upgraded to a suite with 2 rooms which was perfect since we traveled with our 6 month old and it was supposed to be an anniversary trip. Would stay here again if visiting Waco.
