Reviewed 16 July 2017

This hotel is located downtown within walking distance of restaurants and other things to do. The rooms were great, and the outdoor courtyard was nice. The food was a little pricey for what we got though.

Choose this location for the "Fix" on the Magnolia Market experience! It's located just a few blocks from the Silos and Market shopping. Convenient location, clean, comfy beds and close to Baylor University. You must meet Ashley and Stephen at the front desk. They were our favorites. Very knowledgeable about locations and super kind and friendly. Looked forward to seeing them each morning. Stephen will take you on the Shuttle wherever you need go!

Room Tip: King beds are super comfy. Air conditioning was really good.

I stayed here last week for one night and give this property an "average" rating. To be sure there is no amazing hotels in the city of Waco, so compared to what's available, the Courtyard is probably a bit better than run of the mill. That said, it is one of the "old style" Courtyard properties, I would guess it was built in the 1990's.

I am a Platinum and had a "conference suite" It had a very large table in the living room part of the suite (no couch) and then a separate bedroom. I was alone so it really didn't make any difference to me (honestly would have preferred the standard type suite with a couch.

Where this property shines is their people who are super nice. It was literally like 105 degrees the day that I arrived so I called ahead and asked them if they would go and crank the AC down as if the units had been off when I arrived they would have never cooled the room. The front desk person I spoke to was very pleasant and did exactly as I asked and it was super chilly in my suite when I arrived.

The HVAC is the other area that this property is way better than average. While it is older and has the old style room AC (one in the bedroom part and the other in the conference room part) the thermostat literally went down to 45 degrees. I had it set as low as it would go and it was truly cold (like 55 degrees) in the bedroom. That was a welcome relief from the oppressive heat outside. I truly like sleeping in an ice box and the Courtyard Waco definitely came through in that regard.

When I am back in Waco again, I will stay here as while it isn't a St. Regis or even Autograph Collection type hotel the room is freezing and that's enough for me to get a good nights sleep.

Came to Waco and stayed here. It was nice, clean hotel. The front desk is very friendly and helpful. The bistro is good for a quick bite in the morning. The shuttle at the hotel took us over to the Magnolia Silos. Enjoyed my stay.
