Nice friendly staff Rooms are definitely showing their age Bed was soft

Desk top, dresser top and nightstand tops were “tacky” to the touch Likely a combo of the materials finish plus whatever they are using to clean withThe hot water smells (stinks) so it’s a complete put-off and makes the sheets smell as well Every Fairfield property I have been to over the past few years are all dated Time for some upgrades!

They need to update their website to reflect changes in the now non-existent hot tub and in-room jacuzzisStaff was very friendly and accommodating Rooms were fairly clean

Breakfast was good Tv had good streaming options but was also physically damagedOverall good stay

Moncel Abercrombie

Don’t stay here! We had a family discount but they charge you for all kinds of taxes My entire family thought the same thing

PILLOWS ARE HORRIBLE! HOUSE KEEPING DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE A BED WE HAD WRINKLES ON THE BOTTOM SHEETS LIKE SOMEONE HAD ALREADY SLEPT ON THEM We stayed two nights and housecleaning didn’t clean up when we were gone Only good thing is the convenience to the highway We will never stay there again I was also given different cost when booking We didn’t even have water in our mini fridge Don’t do it!!!

This place exceeded our recent 5-star hotel stay in San Antonio, that was terrible So glad we found this place! Extremely clean, fresh and ample Had the best experience staying here with my family last night 05/29/22

The hotel desk clerk was so helpful, changing my booking when I had booked wrong date in error Was told that it was always easier to accommodate when booking directly with hotel instead of 3rd party and I already no longer do that! Housekeeping does a very thorough job with cleaning Everything from main entry to the room was well kept Lots of outlets, phone charging lamps, ample room and delicious coffee The mattress we slept on was extremely comfortable All linens were bright and clean and smelled fresh I highly recommend this place Will stay here again if I’m ever in this cute town, again Side note is that much of downtown is under street construction, so try to walk as much as possible Not high traffic flow tho A few blocks from the magnolia silos and from many restaurants

Gina Jackson

The cleanest hotel I’ve stayed at in a while The towels were soft and the walk in shower was very nice They even had a lighted makeup mirror in the bathroom

We only ate at the restaurant for breakfast but the server was very friendly and the food was beautiful The hotel is within easy walking distance of several restaurants, the Magnolia Silos, and the Dr Pepper museumThe only negatives were that it is close to some train tracks and the occasional train can be loud, and we could hear footsteps upstairs a couple times I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again

Hayley Ramsey

Got stuck in Waco after a car accident and wasn’t able to get a car for a few days so I spent two nights at Hotel Indigo I cannot say enough good things about the staff and the owner Everyone here was so kind and willing to help anyway they absolutely could

The owner Kenny went out of his way to make sure I got a room the second night despite being full Jerry was a fantastic server and extremely friendly and kept me entertained with great conversation at the bar The cocktails and food were delicious Couldn’t have been “stuck” at a better hotel Planning to come back sometime with friends and visit here again under better circumstances Thank you so much Hotel Indigo!

We had a nice two day stay here, but there are some things I would like to point out

(I would say it would have been a solid five if these thing did not happen) The good: When we arrived late after driving all day we had a very kind, friendly and warm woman check us in She was the only employee the whole time that acknowledged us Our room was nicely decorated, new spacious, and comfortable What could have made it a 5 star experience : Most of the ft desk staff were disengaged when we walked by and checked out, pretty cold and uninviting I traveled with pets I was charged a pet fee ($100 non refundable) but when the floor is dirtier than we we left it (I cleaned the floor before I put my pet’s food down the towel was super dirty) this is annoying sorry, it should be a deposit, not all animals are equal The free breakfast is a little disappointing I would stay here again, my expectations would just not be super high

Joanna Benavidez

Very nice and clean Close to alot of restaurants and very convenient We arrived a little early and Front Desk, didn’t get his name, was very helpful getting us checked in

Housekeeping was a little rude while we were trying to get Ice and breakfast but other then that very pleased with our stay Great Hot Breakfast and area is so new so felt very comfortable

T C

Pretty disappointed in this stay Booked two nights & the first night we were so uncomfortable in the room & earlier they had said this was the last room for what I booked The shower curtain was absolutely gross, stained & the shower was not cleaned

When we got into the room, my husband literally killed a spider When we got up in the morning, he said we needed to switch rooms which he never says There were several large spiders,Rolly pollies & other bugs The room wasn’t cleanWhen I went to the front desk the gentleman who helped me was very nice & said he could downgrade us That was fine as long as the room was clean Got into the room, trash was full, shower curtain was also stained with what looked like blood marks It was “better” but not very cleanFor us to still be in a pandemic, housekeeping is crucial The man at the front desk came up and apologized and emptied the trashHowever, I never heard from the manager Never received an apology, points, reimbursement for being downgraded to a smaller room, anything I’ve stayed in Marriotts every week for the last 6 weeks and this housekeeping was the worst Also as a loyal, elite member I would expect moreI’m thankful for the help of the man at the front desk but sad that no one provided an apology, reimbursement, points, etc

Anthony Franklin

A very well staffed, and friendly hotel The 2 star rating is a misnomer; everything was clean, and nicely appointed The pool had a fresh supply of towels and seating; the water was refreshing and didn’t have too much chemicals

The room was clean and the pull out sofa bed was surprisingly comfortable as the king-size bed The blackout curtains meant a a good sleep The breakfast was nice as well They didn’t have any protein, (that’s why it missed the five stars) The exercise room has just enough for a small workout session, (it was over 90°) Overall a pleasure

Danielle Lawrence

We stayed here and LOVED IT The only reason we are giving a 4 star is because the fitness center smelled really bad Like to the point it couldn’t be used

If you don’t need this amenity, then I would highly recommend this place Service was great and everything was very clean If that is important to you, I would choose another place to stay

Katy Reeves

Gr8 location, bigger than ordered room for the 3 of us each having a bed to sleep in after attending family wedding! Breakfast was very slim Pickens both when I went at 8 and when my daughter went at 9 am only waffles, cereal, a few yogurts, a few apples, and a ton of individually wrapped blueberry muffins No eggs, bagels, warm sausage/bacon The warmer was on the island but not plugged in and empty

Disappointed

Jerrica Steger

This hotel is very nice! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly They immediately welcome you with gratitude and ready to assist you in any way As soon as I came down with my cart, they asked if the room was to my liking

The rooms are very spacious and well cleaned They have a pool that has both a hot tub and kiddy pool with water a feature They have outdoor seating that is very inviting I highly recommend staying at this wonderful establishment

Jonathan Meyer

Very comfortable room We had a suite with a small living room – excellent layout and idea for a family to have just a little more space The staff was helpful, the breakfast was OK – typical of a hotel

The pool was being serviced so it was out of commission (bummer) but the small health center helped burn off some energy and calories I would definitely stay there again

Myranda Mullings

Thomas at the front desk was extremely helpful and one of the kindest souls I have ever met He helped us book the room and made sure everything was to our liking I was unsure of wich hotel to book but after speaking with him on the phone he sold me onto Springhill

It was the best hotel experience my family and I have had The rooms were very neat and clean and the atmosphere was friendly and professional Erica and Debra were also so sweet and helpful during breakfast We had our 4 children with us and they made sure we all had everything we needed and even turned some cartoons on for the kiddos We will definitely be back in the future We absolutely loved our stay

Patricia DuMar

The rooms were up to date and attractive I liked the seating area separate from the bedsFriends in our group were expecting a hotel bar as listed in the amenities

I appreciate the hot breakfast The hot items were prepackaged breakfast sandwiches, which was odd since the other items were not individually wrapped

Tim Buchal

Nice hotel right off of Interstate 35 in Waco, TX Access is challenging in summer of 2022 as there is significant construction The rooms were decent sized and modern

The breakfast was decent for the price and accommodations There seemed to be ample parking and the site is fairly close to some of Waco’s attractions (walking distance if you are so inclined, otherwise a quick drive) Overall a positive experience

Monica Garcia

This location is right across from Baylor and 2 to 3 minutes from the Silos and the Dr Pepper Museum The staff was friendly and always cleaning

It was a little frustrating with all the construction and closed roads Twisted Root is walking distance so that was convenient When we were there the hot breakfast was in prepackaged containers like pre-made biscuits and burritos The washers and dryers were free to use but you do need to provide soap and softener Pool and gym were nice Overall we enjoyed our stay

Geri Willis

We were in Waco for our Grandson’s wedding This is the first time we have stayed at a Hilton Garden Inn The room was exceptional

The staff courteous and very helpful One thing that pleasantly surprised us is the food that was available We arrived early and they had salads, sandwiches and amazing amount of snacks and beverages We had breakfast there every morning and the omelettes were delicious We will definitely be staying at Hilton Garden Inn’s in the future

Nicole R

The room was clean and it was a nice place to sleep, but the breakfast was very disappointing The eggs and potatoes had zero seasoning and were cold The fresh fruit was good though

Definitely not worth the almost $9 for the buffet per person Lastly, amputation risk for fingers from barn door in the bathroom was annoying It was hard to open and close and fingers were definitely pinched a bit

Pleasantly surprised at this price point! Fantastic hotel; extremely clean; well appointed and spectacular customer service The ladies at the front desk are extremely processional and helpful They greeted us standing up each time and were extremely sweet

Ms Sarah is spectacular! The bed was very comfortable as were the pillows Made for a very restful nights sleep We will definitely stay here again

Michelle Surginer Szanto

My boyfriend and I rented this room specifically because we wanted to use the hot tub The room was clean and spacious In fact, there is so much room that the king sized bed looks like a double, at first

The hotel is sleek and modern not what usually comes to mind when one thinks of a Holiday Inn We paid $200 plus tax and fees for one night and it was very nice! I would recommend this hotel and especially one if the 4 hot tub suites to anyone!

This little gem in Waco made our one day visit amazing Israel, who greeted us and checked us in, did everything he could to accommodate our high demands with our rooms Janie, who is the best manager, was running around all day and night to make sure everyone had what they needed from towels and blankets to drinks at the bar

She was so sweet and was always friendly and smiling! The hotel is spotless and the breakfast in the morning was so fresh The saltwater indoor pool was so fun It just felt like home We require allot when we travel and they delivered Thanks for the fun time!

Brad

My wife and son stayed here while previewing College The bed had urine stains on the mattress My wife asked for housekeeping and was told none was working and that only one person was working at the hotel

She asked to change rooms and was denied because they were booked (we are skeptical) and then asked to change the sheets herself because no one could help her I called Corporate to complain and they supposedly started an investigation There was no follow-up, no ticket number delivered to my e-mail, and no bill adjustment I was told the pandemic was the reason they were operating with one person and that our family was feeling the impact Here’s a thought Hyatt the pandemic is over and you are a billion dollar company If you can’t staff adequately, perhaps you should be the one feeling the impact and not your guests Just close until you are prepared to staff responsibly It’s not fair to your one employee working or your customers I should note that I like the Hyatt brand and I am a Globalist This was just so unusual I thought it deserved a post cause it wasn’t handled internally

Amy Balsavias

We stay at Hyatt’s most frequently for consistency of cleanliness and service, but this one was rather disappointing Upon check-in, we found several dirty towels under the sink, and a thick layer of dust settled on the bathroom door and surrounding molding At 3:30 p

m, I requested extra pillows and by 10:00, none had been delivered When I went down at 10:00 and asked again, they told me they had ran out of extra towels and blankets just a few hours before Next time I am in Waco, I will try something other than the Hyatt

So far this has been a great hotel Our toilet was broken but they fixed it asap The breakfast is very good considering it’s a hotel breakfast

The pool is nice and saltwater, though the hot tub is chlorinated enough to burn your eyes on the other side of the pool room All in all a great hotel Russel at the front desk has been so helpful our whole stay!

Margot Harvey

I was disappointed with the 3500 pet fee I had to stay 5 days

The highest fee I’ve ever had to payNo toast of any kind for breakfast No fruit or yogurtOn a positive note Brianna was very attentive, helpful and friendly I thank her for the excellent customer service I give her 5 stars!

Mae Joles

Check in is at 3 pm, and not a minute sooner Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable, but beware the towel rack and hair dryer that will fall off the wall Or the sink that doesn’t drain well

The pool doesn’t look near as nice or clean as online! Wierd smell, rusty fixtures, no fountains, and broken installations with a safety cone sitting over it Pool hours say closed at 11 but people were going in and out slamming doors until 1am The TV had horrible reception and constantly glitched out Breakfast was basic Bar is closed due to Covid still

This hotel is a beautiful property and had I had a better experience with check in, it would have been a 4/5 star review 🌟Beds were comfy, room was spacious, great for families, and perfect for the traveling one at thatMy room has leftover trash in the kitchen trash can under the sink, the bathroom had hair on the floor, and there was so much left over soap build up on the shelving of the shower

I professionally clean and this was not even a “bare minimum quick clean” worthy jobThe check in process is fine Mobile key didn’t work The attendant was not very friendly or happy to be working I did give her grace and every time I saw her she wasn’t that excited about being at work, I get it Rough days happen but not all 3 days I was there Regardless, this was not what I expected of a Marriott, and not my past experiences either and now I’ll continue giving Hyatt my Globalist status, since they honor our military and their families regaddless of being on orders to PCS or not We travel home a lot to be with our loved ones ❤️

Jennifer Crain

We showed up at 7 pm on a Friday night with no reservation The heater didn’t work in our previous hotel, so we were in a bind Ebony at the front desk was so kind and accommodating

She found us a great deal on a junior suite and saved our trip! The suite was spacious and extremely clean We appreciated everything especially the linens that didn’t smell like bleach I’ll be looking at this chain of hotels again Thanks Ebony!

Mark Morgan

I have traveled a lot during my career and this is by far one of the best hotels I have stayed in The management crew here is top notch I am always greeted with a smile and staff is very professional

Fun hotel! Well laid out rooms Bathroom door was not installed correctly and had a huge gap No housekeeping without request, no big deal as we are pretty neat, just an FYI

Area is a bit sketch Ask for a room on the pool side As we were leaving there was a barefoot man propped up against the door with his bike on the sidewalk So keep in mind! Bartender was outstanding! Get a smoked old fashioned!!

Kenton Thompson

This is a clean and comfortable hotel, but located in a very run down neighborhood and surrounded by road construction that makes it difficult to get in and out of the location The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and greeted us every time we came into the lobby The bartender was friendly, helpful and knew her stuff

I would definitely recommend this hotel for those reasons, but it will help once the construction is done

Emily Plocheck

We stayed in room 207 for one night There is an adjoining door with a gap at the top There was an older couple next to us which were quiet for the most part

It wasn’t like loud parting college students We could hear every word and make out conversations they had ALL night the snoring was like it was in our room Which resulted in a restless night of tossing, turning and frustration I could have slept better in the car (crossed my mind) Bring ear plugs if you’re planning a visit

While we wanted the boutique Indigo next door (which was fully booked), this Residence was a nice backup Staff was incredibly polite and helpful, our 2 bedroom suite was large, airy, and clean The breakfast was basic but fresh and hot every morning

Nice coffee bar The indoor pool was clean and not overly chlorinated like some hotel pools can be 3 blocks to Magnolia Market, and Diamondback Restaurant All in all, a very good bargain Great for families

Susan Honaker

The stay here was not quality I have never felt like such a burden The breakfast is subpar

Pillows felt like bricks under your head Dishwasher in room was very loud, maintenance said it needed to be replaced but nothing happened during the stay The drain in the shower didn’t drain so you stood in water during your showerBasketball court was not fenced in and people park right there so if you loose control of the ball you could bounce it off someone’s car Cats on property

My wife and I have never had a bad experience with any of the Marriot family of hotels until we stayed at the Residence Inn in Waco When we arrived 12:30pm on Saturday, there were only about 5 or 6 cars in the parking lot, so we thought we wouldn’t have any issues getting into a room earlier than the normal 3pm check-in time The clerk at the counter told us that there weren’t any rooms clean but it shouldn’t be longer than an hour wait

I asked her if she could call my cell to let me know since we would be waiting in our car in the parking lot but she said they don’t call people that we would have to call them After about 45 minutes, I went back into the lobby to check to see if a room was available yet but she was busy at the counter checking in another couple I waited until she finished with them and gave them their room keys Once they headed towards their rooms, I asked her if a room was ready She again said, “no” not yet I asked her how she just checked in the previous couple, and she said that they had a different room than the one I booked I told her it didn’t matter what kind of room we were put in, we just needed a room She told me she couldn’t swap me out because they are at full capacity So, I went back in my car to wait My wife went in to check this time We have now been waiting for 1-1/2 to 2 hours The clerk wasn’t pleasant and told my wife that our room wasn’t ready yet My wife told her, “okay, it’s just that usually the hotels work with us since we are Titanium Elite” Here is where we were shocked: The clerk told my wife, “We don’t care what status people are; people are people” I called Marriot corporate after my wife told me what she said I do understand that ‘people are people’ but we only stay at Marriot hotels so that my status stays at Titanium so we do get the added perks and benefits In the end, our room wasn’t ready until 3:05pm Unfortunately, when we walked into the room (2nd floor) it smelled like poop and very strong smell They had to assign us another room (3rd floor this time) and that room didn’t have an odor We originally asked her to give us a room on the first floor since my wife doesn’t do elevators and I had knee surgery last week and was using a cane to get around We have stayed in Residence Inns many times (including this one) and we have never had a bad experience
