"Trip to Line Camp"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 10, 2014
Humberto G | Eagle Pass, TX, United States
We traveled to Waco to drop our daughter to the Baylor Line Camp, we arrived a day early and booked a couple of rooms at La Quinta University in Waco. Was pleasantly surprised to see that everything that we had requested was taken in consideration. The rooms were very clean and the AC in the rooms was already on! This makes a big difference, because you come in the room and it is all nice and cool, specially in the Texas summer. Great Service, Great Staff and the Manager goes the extra mile to help his guests. will definitely come back to this hotel. Great value for your money!

"Best hotel front desk staff"

We come to the La Quinta Waco University Hotel every summer for at least 4 nights. The rooms are generally clean and smell decent; there may be a little mold in the bathrooms, but it's small amounts. The beds are hard but they work. The atmosphere of the hotel and the great staff are what make it worth coming back.

"WACO Visit? Stay here!"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jun 24, 2014
Joncheryl S | Waco, U.S. Virgin Islands
Comfortable hotel and very helpful staff who went out of the way to assist us. Allowed in as soon as room was available and slight extension to allow for one last site visit before we left so that we could keep our dogs quiet and happy. Very accessible to Baylor as well as Mammoth Site and Cameron Park Zoo. Hostess suggested local activities that were not listed on tour guides and were quite fun.

"she may be old, but she's still got it"

I stay at this hotel while on business in Waco. I love that it is centrally located, with access to restaurants and easy to get in and out of. while it is one of the older hotels in Waco, the friendly staff and the clean rooms more than makeup for the age of the building. So if you are going to be in Waco, and want a good value for your money this is you hotel.
